Ayrshire DJ Ewan McVicar said he never meant his dancefloor banger and UK top 40 hit Tell Me Something Good to be anything more than a filler to get his set going.
Now Ewan, who has gone top twenty five with his killer track – an infectious mix which samples Rufus & Chaka Khan’s classic track Tell Me Something Good, can’t believe the success of his ‘edit’.
It is now being played regularly on Radio One and has attracted complements from dane music aficionados including Arielle Free, Danny Howard and Jodie Harsh as well as fans around the globe.
Ewan’s tune has been widely played at events from Creamfields to Glasgow’s own SWG3, and brilliantly fuses Chaka Khan’s voice with synths and bass.
He told fan on his social media: “When a set out to make music, it was just to have a laugh and do something that I love Tell Me Something Good was just meant to be an edit.
“For ma sets to pick things up in the perty, now it has just gone into the top 40. It is mad innit.”
Ewan couldn’t believe it when the track which is on Patrick Topping’s Trick label became an Official UK Top Forty contender.
He joked at the time: “This is mental hahahaha am a gaun to be on MTV?”
He also said after hearing it at a St Mirren football match: “Holy f*** hahaha just heard St Mirren fans were singing a version of tell me something good the day, someone please send me vids. whit a dream UP THE MURN. 1-0.”
Ewan has also kept his head screwed despite the massive success and he admitted: :”My new least favourite saying is ‘enjoy it while it lasts’ am lit mate am no a daft wee boy i know this life isnt forever but who says we need to stop grinding & having fun whilst we do it. negative. keep innovating. keep smiling…”
