The Valley

In his native Ayr, in Scotland, Ewan McVicar revitalised the town’s club culture, sparking a movement that remains fervent and committed, four years since it was first formed. This is typical of Ewan’s community-focused outlook.

Still a relative newcomer to the international circuit, his commitment to building a local scene in Ayr, combined with his DJ skills and fearless approach to production make Ewan one of the most promising artists of his generation. Nominated in the Breakthrough DJ category at the DJ Mag Best of British Awards in 2020, he is ascending rapidly up the ranks.

His gold selling single ‘Tell Me Something Good’ bought wins for two awards in 2021 - ‘Track of the Year’ for DJ Mag Best of British accompanied by Radio 1’s first ever ‘Electronic Track of the Year’. To date McVicar is especially proud of remixing one of the most important songs in recent electronic music folklore ‘Gabriel’ by Joe Goddard. The brains behind his own mini empire, this early success is a sure-fire sign of things to come. Ewan’s latest track ‘Groove Thang’ throws his production style back to the style of his massive hit, ‘Tell Me Something Good’. Big stabs and an incredible vocal.

Friendly, big-hearted, enterprising and bold, Ewan McVicar is carving out his own path in the UK’s world-leading scene, encouraging others to join him and maintaining a positive outlook every step of the way. His upbeat demeanour, combined with his superlative skills as a DJ and producer, are the cornerstone of his flourishing career, fuelling an organic and enduring rise to the top…
