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.

Cache Well Spent - Mixed by Mr Lingo OUT NOW!
What do you call a mixtape where the DJ has not only selected and mixed great tracks, but has also lovingly re-worked each one in painstaking detail?
Well, a mixtape, I guess. But that doesn't really do justice to Mr Lingo's new, er, mixtape, as it's a lot closer to a mixed album (indeed, these re-edits and remixes could easily shift units on Juno) than simply a mixtape in the classic sense of the word.
Of course, in this day and age, mixtapes are getting a lot more adventurous, thanks to Serato etc, but it's the addition of great production (by ace beatsmith and producer extraordinaire Vee Kay) that sets this mix apart from the rest. And it helps that it's crammed full of classic hip-hop jams!
If I were you I'd be heading straight to Bandcamp to pick this bad boy up...
... and with the official launch of the mixtape on Saturday, I'm looking forward to a weekend DJing with Lingo and the rest of the FFTT clan!
