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 Tong’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 twelfth release it’s safe to say his selection of tracks is always on the pulse. His recent releases on DJ Haus’s Unknown To The Unknown, Remix for Addison Groove & Jeremy Olander, Sasha’s Last Night On Earth, BPitch! Control, Poker Flat and official remix for Inner City’s ‘Good Life’ has shown his varying side from from the melodic to driving sides of techno.
