Cooking With Gas - The weekly dose of all things percussive, groovy and dark; curated by Ezmun. A friend recently asked Ezmun to record a mix at 180 BPM as this tempo works great as a running soundtrack. Episode 12 is just that – 2 hours of drum and bass starting with melodic and liquid, passing through dark techy and footwork in the direction of jump up.
Ezmun is originally from Cumbria in the United Kingdom, he has recently relocated to Vietnam to grow his music ambitions both as a DJ and producer. Unfortunately, covid forced him to temporarily relocate to Melbourne, from here he will release a weekly show pushing his favourite sounds.
Ezmun, like many DJs, started off in his bedroom and this led to house parties involving close friends and cohorts. Fast Forward to 2019 and he finally made his breakthrough into clubs, playing venues in Manchester, Hanoi, Laos and Ho Chi Minh City.
Enamoured with the dark sparse atmosphere of minimal half-time 140s and the lairy clatter of percussive leftfield bass, he implements these as peaks and troughs in an energetic techno setting. Ezmun is slowly gaining notoriety in the underground in Vietnam and is hoping to make his way back there.
In the meantime, he will explore the Melbourne underground scene and continue to hone his production skills with a view to releasing his own music next year. Cooking With Gas is an opportunity for him to showcase his friends and other undiscovered DJs, as well as explore the genres he loves in more detail.
