Geshe Ewing was being influenced by music from a very young age and got his first pair of decks before he even hit his teens. By the time he was in his early teens, he was already DJing on London pirate radio stations, which finally lead him to play in some of London’s renowned clubs at the time.
Ten of the finest tunes on the scene at the moment…
With so much great music out there Guerilla Sounds decided to put together a quick top ten mix of the finest. The GS Select mix is not just about the 10 most popular underground tunes out there, it’s about the most inspiring and dynamic music there is, whilst demonstrating and supporting some of the futures freshest artists. Not an easy task, but we feel that this June mix does exactly what we have set out to do. Especially as we have manage to incorporate not only new artist on the scene, but also new label standing alongside a couple of the pioneer labels of underground house music.

Geshe Ewing releases his “Rose Tinted EP” on Smiley Fingers Records, which boasts two deeply driven minimal tracks resonating that late night club vibe. The title track “Rose Tinted”, is a relatively simple track but very effective with its deep driving bass and thumping beat giving plenty of movement, while some mild percussion add rhythm and complements its movement. Distant dramatic sounds gives it that late night edge, adding to the aura and atmosphere.
“I Play House” starts with vocal snippets and a warm analogue bass to get things rising, before it breaks into the deep swinging groove piece that it is. “I play House” is definitely the main feature here; rhythmic percussion layered on top of an infectious bass line giving the track plenty of deep groove. A standard for any 5am DJ.
Assemble is a new West London night which promises to be a hit as it presents some of London’s most talented DJs. Along side resident Geshe Ewing, Assemble drafts in a live performance from Saytek, who has has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting live acts to come from the UK in recent times. He has been relentlessly touring the UK and Europe with his fully improvised hardware live shows with headline slots at clubs and parties such as Sankeys, Fabric, Amnesia (Milan), Circo Loco, The Zoo Project (Ibiza), Mr C’s Super Freq (France), Patent Blua Secret Party (Berlin), Circus Festival (Spain) and Cafe d’Anvers (Belgium). He has also had various work released on Intec Digital, Bigger Deer Recordings, Berwick Street Records and many more. Assemble has also lined up Ceri who is not stranger to the London underground scene having played at Ministry of Sound, The Egg, Cargo and also at London’s renowned after hours night, ‘Jaded’.
It’s considerably noticeable that many underground nights are organised from central London out to East London and edging on the London Bridge area. But East London seems to be more predominant and probable due to its character and numerous scruffy locations. But here Assemble aims to bring to West London something which it seems to be lacking. An underground night bring to the surface the true sense of the expression, ‘underground music’, and with Saytek and Ceri joining resident Geshe Ewing, Assemble is sure to be rocking, or as Ceri likes to say ‘screwing’.
