DJ/producer Ejeca has become a staple in the global dance circuit. Last year playing Boiler Room at AVA Festival (where he shared the bill with Bicep, Midland and Marcel Dettmann), Ejeca’s diversity and clear dedication to electronic music have been an obvious driving factor in his success. He’s backed it up this year with a warehouse show at London’s E1 alongside Dj Sneak, Catz N Dogz and Matt Tolfrey, as well as hosting his own boat party in Dublin and headlining Decibel’s 1st Birthday in Sheffield.
Ejeca frequently releases on labels including Sasha’s Last Night On Earth, Flash Recordings, his own imprint Exploris andDefected. In doing so, he produces a conglomerate of styles ranging from house to trance, keeping people guessing but all the while managing to hold his trademark sound, as demonstrated on his recent remix of Julie McDermott’s ‘Don’t Go’. With a global touring schedule, there’s an energy around Ejeca that gives one the impression that he’s steadily affirming himself as a great within the dance music industry.
Ejeca aka Garry McCartney is one of Belfastâ€™s best musical exports in recent years from the growing scene in Northern Ireland. His down-to-earth attitude has allowed him to gain recognition from his musical peers and with constant solid releases itâ€™s always been music first, hype later.
From a young age his fascination with production culminated in early releases such as the limited edition, vinyl-only Tusk Wax Five EP, and his work with fellow Northern Irish, Bicep on AUS. After 12 long years of hard work, his big break finally came when two of his tracks were named ‘Essential Tune of the Week’ on Pete Tongâ€™s BBC Radio 1 show.
Ejeca is now a firmly established name as a reputable purveyor of high quality house and techno, and with his label Exploris now on their tenth release itâ€™s safe to say his selection of tracks is always on the pulse. His recent releases on Sashaâ€™s Last Night On Earth, BPitch! Control, Poker Flat and official remix for Inner Cityâ€™s â€˜Good Lifeâ€™ has shown his varying side from from the melodic to driving sides of techno.
Itâ€™s safe to say Ejeca has got his hands full as he maintains a worldwide DJ tour schedule, record label and future release on Last Night On Earth to coincide with his debut live show, this will be his most hands on and forward thinking year to date.
