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.

"Bristol's very own vicar of funk Ewan Hoozami is best known for his congregation-rousing party jams. This new seven track EP catches him in a more reflective frame of mind, unbuttoning his cassocks for some after-hours downtempo business.
Following the doomy, bestial grunt of 'BRM' with the queasy sweetness of 'Gazi Strip', there's something unsettlingly soul-searching about this record from the off. Highlights include the brooding angst-hop of 'Hope', the heartbroken beach-crawl of 'All Quiet' and the cinematic, horn-laden strut of 'Level'. The pay-off is saved for the end, though, as 'Sunny' peeks optimistically from behind the clouds. Taking it's Georgie Fame piano break from a cover of the Bobby Hebb standard, 'Sunny' steps and skanks it's way to redemption. A must-grab for admirers of DJ Krush, Coldcut and Nightmares on Wax, 'Mildebeats' is only available as a free download. Get your late night gear here!"
