UK-born, Berlin-based Ewan Pearson has been turbo-boosting dancefloors since 1996. In that time he wrote a book and released a gaggle of challenging tracks. Pearson’s productions surprise even the most jaded ears - like the man, they’re offbeat, but on point, with a charmingly unpretentious disposition. He’s also put his addictive techno-pop touch to remixes for Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp, Erlend Øye, and Depeche Mode (among many others), and even produced albums for Tracey Thorn and The Rapture. In this lecture at the 2005 Red Bull Music Academy, the techno-pop professor tells you how he makes the catchiest of dancefloor hits.
