Pacer EP

Release Date. 01/08/11
Catalogue Number. BD185

Aberdonian-in-London Ewan Robertson aka Offshore returns with the third of his “EP” series, his second for Big Dada, and it’s another massive stride forward for this multi-talented producer.

The EP begins with title-track “Pacer”, supple and dancefloor friendly but with enough of Offshore’s trademark melancholic melody to satisfy the most emotional of listeners. “Pepper” is a brutal bass number which pushes his sonic palette into new territory. “Pearls & Butlers” with guest Cienfuegos is a deconstructed ballad with a more ‘live’ feel than Robertson’s previous work. Skit-length “Mintlaw” once again sees Robertson pushing the sonics further than in the past, while “East Coast Capital Connect” offers a journey back to the frozen North of his last EP, the complexity and sharpness of the execution showing how quickly Offshore is still improving.

Already a favourite amongst electronic music aficionados, “Pacer” shows how widely Robertson is setting his sights. With another EP to follow later in the year and an album in early 2012, Offshore is ready to come in from the cold.
