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. And drums.
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 Sirklz
Bassweight remixes of cult classics as one half of Box Rocket
Analogue sci-fi disco as one half of The Mind-Reading Space Lasers.

Boomtown Fair was amazing!

Got Back from Boomtown Fair on Monday (feeling somewhat worse for wear)... what a festival! It has to be up there with my favourite ever festivals. There was a great mix of people, bands, DJs and things to do, all set in stunning grounds (Stowe National Trust grounds), and with some amazing on-site decor and design ideas.
Not mention a shedload of mates to get battered with!
I was lucky enough to play several sets over the weekend - in the amazing Asbo Disco Community Centre tent, in the incredible 'Downtown' area, and on the Main Stage on the Saturday afternoon - with Powercut, my Funk From the Trunk homie.
The Downtown area was basically a fake street of amazing little venues and installations - big party styles in every one! I played 3 absolutely rinsing sets over the course of the weekend, pure vibes!
And playing Main Stage to a few hundred happy campers was a treat!
Big up Boomtown Fair, roll on next year!

Volume 3 (Front Cover)


Featured on Monkey Boxing!

BIG M PRODUCTIONS: Banging Artists Vol. 6

7 AUGUST 2010

It’s ‘Volume 6’ o’clock in Nufunk land at the minute and Big M beat Manmade Records to the draw by dint of fact that this is already out. Funnily enough Manmade label bosses CMC & Silenta turn up on the first track on which they give Papa Was A Rolling Stone a disco-breakin makeover. Then you’ve got Breakbeat Junkie throwing a multitude of ingredients into the nufunk melting pot and Hayz feeding beat steroids to the Happy Mondays. So far, so nufunk by numbers. Happily Ewan Hoozami rocks up at the end with the beefy Drinking Song, a collision of hefty scattershot drums, chopped up ancient scratchy vocal and a cheeky little homage to Rage Against The Machine after a ridiculously long breakdown. Watch this man!
(Out now on Big M Productions)
