Wildebeats by Ewan Hoozami
"A rousing sermon of finely chopped beats and intricately layered samples, all hail Bristol's 'vicar of funk!'" - Parker (Rocstar / Goodgroove / Jalapeno)
"Ewan Hoozami manages to use classic hip hop MPC production styles while also dishing up a fresh and progressive sound... An impressive debut that has been in my shows all summer" - DJ Cheeba (Solid Steel / Rane)
"A future classic - Ewan's unique sound draws the listener in leaving you wanting more and more" - DJ Task (Pirates Anthem / ex-Ninja Tunes tour DJ)
"a quality album of well put together samples and punchy beats, something for the head and dancefloor, top stuff" - Aldo Vanucci (Good Living Records)
"Strictly breaks, dancefloor bombs and crafty sample workouts from the king of the chopped beat. Lurve it" - DJ Moneyshot (Solid Steel/Big M/Proto Hype Records)
'Let it be said that the herd of stampeding antelope from which this album takes inspiration are possibly the funkiest, most soulful and hip-hop conscious antelope your ears will ever share listening space with. Put quite simply, Wildebeats is a collection of finely constructed breaks and floor-filling party tunes. Great for any occasion'- Floored Capri (Organik Records)
"Not many people can cut and paste as well as Ewan Hoozami. A real star in the making" - Rory Hoy (Howlin' records, Big M)
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.
