I'm a DJ, producer, crate-digger, MPC basher, vocalist and all-round good egg by the name of Ewan Hoozami.
I've been played on BBC Radio 6, Solid Steel Radio, Radio Popolare (Italy), and BBC Introducing, released music on Pedigree Cuts, Goodgroove Records, Big M and many more, and DJ'd all over the UK and Europe.
I loosely centre my music around Funk, Hip-hop, Disco and Soul. I love basslines.
When I'm not doing Ewan Hoozami stuff I can be found doing the following (deep breath):
Running Particle Zoo Recordings
Writing & performing:
House/bass as STEGA
Wonky electronic hip-hop as Chic Futura
Bassweight remixes of cult classics as one half of Box Rocket
Analogue sci-fi disco as one half of The Mind-Reading Space Lasers.

Free Download - classic 80s edit

I've got a bunch of new original music in the pipeline... in the meantime help yourself to a blissed-out edit of this classic:

Thanks to Song Pusher for the early blog support

Sometimes you hear a song that makes you think, “Holy Shit!!!” and then you realize you aren’t imagining those words you actually are saying them. This fantastic remix of the classic Hall & Oates track by Ewan Hoozami literally just did that to me. Have a great Thursday. Slump, smile, repeat :)

Shindig Weekender 'Afterhours' Compilation Released

Stoked to have had a track included in Shindig Weekender's Afterhours Compilation amongst some brilliant artists inc. my Goodgroove Records fam The Allergies, The Sly Players and Parker.

Here's what Shindig have to say about it all:

"This compilation features some of our favourite artists and music from 2014 by showcasing a fine selection of afterhours beats rather than peak time bangers. It's the perfect soundtrack to reflect on the amazing 2014 festival season and start to get that fizzle of excitement as we head into the summer of 2015.credits
