Recently I gave you the heads up about Adam Tyler’s new music project under new moniker of McEwen. Aside from dazzling me with a quite frankly spiffing, electrifying re-imaging of the Ace Of Base mega hit “Don’t Turn Around”, I was further alerted that this offering was merely acting as a taster to a much bigger buzz building release. That of a full-blown EP of cover tracks from the 90’s, accordingly given the title of the “90’s Kid” EP.
Each one of the carefully chosen 6 track collection acts as a little milestone which fed Adam Tyler with a fascination to become involved in music. These are the songs of Adam’s youth that have inspired, influenced and in turn helped to shape his own sound and artistry.
It’s interesting to see the inclusion of a lesser known Eiffel 65 track “My Clown” and “Supernova Girl” from the soundtrack of Disney movie “Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century” making an appearance here among the huge hits of the day such as George Michael’s “Too Funky”, “Missing” by Everything But The Girl, and Haddaway’s “What Is Love”, all of which I held an inkling of suspicion that they might play a part in Adam’s journey into music making.
As an introduction to McEwen, this collection of well produced, buzzy electronic pop tracks of yesteryear have been brought up to speed with slick execution and a whole lot of personal connection being breathed into them. To my mind, this actually kinda makes them even more funky and appealing.
Wait a minute…did I almost forget to tell you, you can scoop up this EP for FREE? To pick up a copy, jump over to McEwen’s website.
