New signing to Pedigree Cuts (EMI/Warner), home to Goldie, Ulrich Schnauss, Shawn Lee, Boca 45, Skeewiff and many more.

Ewan Hoozami (Pronounced: /youˈn'hooz'arr'mee / YOU-n-hooz-ARR-mee / "You and whose army") mixes sampling, songwriting and cutting edge production techniques to weave a sound with one foot in the glory days of hip-hop, disco and funk, and the other striding towards the future.

Originally a rapper/poet, Ewan Hoozami took up DJing in the early 00's and won the first comp he entered. From that moment he was hooked, and has played over 1000 shows since. Initially 'just' a hip-hop DJ, he learned his trade among the finest turntablists in Bristol while amassing a huge funk/world vinyl collection and developing a passion for electronic music and soulful/emotive vocals.

In 2007 he bought an MPC and started making dusty trip-hop beats using samples from his ever-expanding vinyl collection.
His debut EP came out in 2009 on Dusted Wax, following which he has put out an album (Wildebeats, 2009) and dozens of other releases and remixes on small indie labels.

Ewan has developed a unique approach to songwriting which he uses to create simultaneously urban and futuristic yet soulful and organic music. 2013 has even seen him pick up the microphone again to lay down rap and singing vocals on many of his compositions and become the frontman for his live band.

He's taken his music as far as Croatia and Greece, all over the UK and to dozens of festivals large and small - either DJing a rabble-rousing blend of the freshest beats, or performing his original material with his full live band

With the worldwide release of his Robot Soul album, and a new EP out in May on the world famous Goodgroove label, Ewan Hoozami is a name to watch in 2014.

The Mouse Outfit feat. Dr Syntax - We Ain't Goin Nowhere (Ewan Hoozami refix!)


Supported these guys with my live band in London and DJing up in Scotland last year and fuck me they're good! Love this album and always thought this tune could have been given a funky refix, so figured I'd do exactly that.

Skin Too Deep single out now!


The lead single from my new album is out now, featuring stunning remixes from Mr Bird and Handprint & The Time Twins.
Available on Juno Download, iTunes and all good digital stores, it even featured on the iTunes front page earlier this week!

BUY THE SINGLE HERE (ITUNES) (JUNODOWNLOAD)
Plus, check out the review from Juno: West Country producer Ewan Hoozami recently relocated to Brighton in a bid to give his career a kick up the backside. It seems to have paid off, as this is his most rounded and developed production yet. Whereas previous releases have focused on funk breaks, "Skin Too Deep" is a slice of woozy disco-pop, complete with his own impassioned vocals. Mr Bird adds a little swing and heavier bottom end, making the most of Hoozami's funk-flecked guitars. Finally, Handprint & The Time Twins give the track a little more house flavour, while retaining the original synths, guitar and vocals.

Ramp FM: Choice Cuts feat. Ewan Hoozami



New Mixtape!

I was asked to do a mix for Ramp FM's Choice Cuts show. Big ups to Paddy for the invite. Having not done a proper studio mixtape for quite a while I thought I'd go to town on this one. Also, it is the first mix I recorded with my new set up of one turntable, Rane TTM56 mixer and fully primed MPD32. It was a bit weird without the right hand deck at first, but it's also really cool having much greater live looping, FX and beat-doubling options to hand. I'm definitely going to stick with it.

Anyway, hope you dig the mix. It's dedicated to my beautiful fiancee Hayley.
