Morgan's band Easy, with DJ Lippo, produced several critically acclaimed records for Cosmos Records. Their videos, directed and produced by Dews, aired on Spain´s TV3. Easy performed live throughout Spain and at Sónar, Barcelona's International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Arts. During this period Dews also worked in fine art; engravings with master engraver Tristan Barbarà, interactive lo-tec installations, and video installation. He was a recipient of The Moebius Art Prize for Interactive Art.
