Eugene Glasgow a UK South Coast based Producer (who also records under Juan Zero and Southside Son guises) was influenced from an early age by his parents love of Soul and Folk music, along with many cassette compilations of the 80’s that introduced him to the early electronic sounds of House and Techno. Eugene started his production career by making Drum ‘N’ Bass in the early 90′ under the name Retro. Having a love for the early sounds of House and Techno; such as seminal dance classics ‘Voodoo Ray’ and ‘Strings Of Life’, by the mid-Nineties Eugene naturally progressed to playing and producing House Music. Later a remix for BMG followed for Grand Popo Football Club and is also releasing an EP under the name Juan Zero on Broadcite Music.
Someday / I’ll Do Anything
Eugene Glasgow and one of UAE’s best loved club brands, MustHaveSoul, are set to re-launch with their own record label this winter, kicking off the party with an ace two tracker – ‘Someday EP’. Someday is a cool and sophisticated old school flavoured slab of House Music laced with jacking beats and cool vocal loops that dance around an infectious hook backed with a deep bass rumble. I’ll Do Anything comes with a classy deep vibe touched with jazzy undercurrents as it’s Leftfield keys trip though a platter of sublime beats and mesmerising drops, all pinned together by an uber spoken word – rounding off a quality debut for this brand new imprint!
‘Its great to be releasing this EP as MustHaveSouls debut release, they have much respect for the music, history and the people involved.’ – Eugene Glasgow.
vasQ – Sonntag
Offering his services to 247House earlier in December 2015, Eugene Glasgow pulled off a great deep soulful remix of vasQ – Sonntag. This release was naturally heading into the tech house arena with remixes from Andrew Lord and Josh Holiday, however with some warm bass lines and chord stabs, the end product turned out to be a driving soulful and deep house track.
“With most remixes I try and use as much of the original. The original track was quite techy/progressive but thought I could make it sound deeper. I chopped up the pads and enveloped / faded the parts so that I could introduce them into the track when and where. The arpeggiated riffs I shifted off the beat and back on which sounded pretty funky. Kept the bassline and smashed it with a FET style compressor; with the beats I pitched down the original drum parts and re worked them into layered hits, another favourite is the staple SSL style compressor on the drum group; after that overall tried to keep the mix sounding dark and weighty. Mastered by Richard Earnshaw”
