It is inspiring to see what Evan Duthie has been able to achieve at such a young age in such a short space of time. The 21 year old DJ & Produzer has been making waves in the industry picking up support from the likes of Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Hannah Wants, MK and BBC Radio 1 to name a few.
Evan was born in Aberdeen and has always had a passion and ear for music. He launched his career in summer 2015, aged just 14 with his first show at a festival in Norway. Since then he has been booked to play at numerous festivals including Enjoy, Belladrum, Cultivate and Field Trip Festival as well as Ibiza Rocks, Oval Space, supported MK at Unit 51 and for Radio 1’s Annie Mac’s UK tour at the o2 Academy, Glasgow. Evan has played alongside some of the most influential names in the industry: Annie Mac, Green Velvet, John Digweed, Melé, MK and Mella Dee to name a few... Evan has also made a name for himself in Ibiza - within a day of being on the island he secured his first set at Hush. He also performed at the legendary Ibiza Rocks and didn’t disappoint, so much so, he was asked back to play again while he was on the Island.
The world faced an unprecedented crisis in 2020. Despite the music industry taking a huge hit, Evan spent lockdown in his studio creating music, which lead to his track ‘You Got Lucky’ sparking enormous support from numerous BBC radio 1 shows including 2 plays by the one & only Pete Tong as well as Annie Mac. He released his debut single on Glasgow Underground which reached #22 in the Beatport Top 100 chart. His follow up single ‘For You’ was made Jaguar’s ‘Dance Floor Moment’ when she covered Danny Howard’s Radio 1 show! In 2021, Evan released a 3 track EP on Hannah Want’s Etiquette label and a 2 track EP on W&O Street Tracks picking up support from the likes of Danny Howard, ANTS, Gorgon City and MK.
Evan’s unique sound, grounded attitude, talent, dedication & determination are key to his success. His ability to sense the vibe and take the crowd on a journey make Evan’s set stand out. With support from Annie Mac, Pete Tong and DJ’s he has played alongside and the forthcoming singles and EPs set for release on some high profile labels, Evan is rapidly rising through the ranks. It is clear the future is very bright for the 21 year old.
