Dextro is the work 27 year old Scottish audio-head Ewan Mackenzie. Born into a musical family in Falkirk, Scotland, Ewan has played in bands since he was fourteen. Dextro grew out of Mackenzie’s desire to create his own sounds and make music outside of a traditional band set up and has led him to persue the unconventional sounds that occupy the record.
Consequence Music is the debut album under his dextro name and it consists of beautiful, melodic electronica.“Most of album was created in a very quiet house in the gorgeous Scottish hills,” says Ewan. “Solitude played a big part in getting my mind focussed on the music, and over this six to seventh month period I didn’t socialise with my friends except on rare occasions (which were always fantastic fun).”
The album is largely instrumental (there are some voices/vocals, although little that could be described as legible lyrics) with sampled recordings, guitars, piano, melodica and other strange unrecognisable sounds. It comprises of adventurous music made by a musical brain rather than a mathematical one, and is really unworthy of words alone. If you dig deep down into the soul of these tracks and you'll find a group of compositions packed with detail and beautifully strong melodies. There is a fuzzy, droney sound to this album, and sure enough you begin to hear hidden depths upon every listen. A true grower and an inspiration.
