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.

New track - Space People

Ewan Hoozami - Space People by Ewan Hoozami

This is the first original track I've written for a few months, while I've been busy with remixes and getting my album ready... and i think the break has done me good!

Really pleased with this bass-heavy banger... if the Avalanches made glitch-bass-space-hop it would sound like this!

Rane SL-4 ON SALE IN UK! Pretty steep!


I want this, it looks lush. 2 USB drives, significantly enhanced Core Audio and some pretty tasty new features inc 96khz sample rate (which is what most of the top producers now use... although you'll need a pretty fast computer!).

However at £999 I really don't need it that much...! looks like my SL-3 will do for now. Perhaps the price will come down in a few months. If it does I'll update the blog.


Couple more Mashups added to my recent collection... release date due shortly

Some or all of these coming out on Dirty Dubsters Digital very soon!
