About:

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.

Regrooved comes to Bristol!


HOT OFF THE PRESS:

"International party franchise Regrooved arrives in Bristol with the man of the moment, Stickybuds, in tow to rock the Big Chill Bar on Saturday 28th May.
Touring to promote his huge new EP, the Canadian party-rocker extraordinaire will be joined by Ghetto Funk label boss Goodgroove and me, plus Brap FM and Funk From The Trunk residents upstairs all night."

Needless to say I'm delighted to be involved with the inaugural Regrooved event in Bristol, and hopefully this is just the first of many. And Stickybuds as an opening headliner ain't half bad!

To celebrate I've done a big new Ghetto Funk mix, check it here:

Couple of wicked free mash-ups

By DJ Vapor, a new one to me but a man clearly capable of some dope mashes,... these ones will fill any floor...

Missy Elliott vs. Fort Knox Five & Featurecast - Killa Shots by DJ Vapor

Percee P & Prince Po vs. Ali B and Nick Thayer - N E Greats by DJ Vapor

Massive FREE track from Featurecast

Featurecast is one of my favourite producers right now, mainly because he straddles the line between filthy and funky with perfect balance.. this one has been a regular in his sets of late and for reasons presumably involving altruism and generosity, he's decided to give it away... and, like Ronseal, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Party Starter by Featurecast

Frenic remix of my jam 'Falcon Punch'

Fans of Ninja Tunes/Soild Steel and DJ Cheeba (and my album 'Wildebeats, of course!) may know this track already, from Cheeba's acclaimed AV mixtape 'Revenge of the Nerd'.
And now, for my official remix album, my mate Frenic has dropped this ENORMOUS remix of it!
You definitely need to listen to this

New remix from me - Pulpfusion - Sex, Drums, Funk n Roll (Ewan Hoozami remix)

Just knocked this puppy out (figuratively, you understand)... already received blog support from my pal Mr Soulsbury, and official 'seal of approval' from Russ Cuban and the chaps at Hong Kong Ping Pong (the former will be dropping it dusring his set at Snowbombing). So I'm pretty chuffed with the support!
Decide for yourself if it's worth the hype:
Pulpfusion - Sex, Drums, Funk n Roll (Ewan Hoozami remix) by Ewan Hoozami

This will be on Pulpfusion's new single 'Sex Drums, Funk N Roll, my remix will rub shoulders with the likes of Funkanomics. Release date TBC

Parker Vs Muse

Fans of his last mixtape (blogged here, no less) will already know this stupidly massive remix from my Bristol breadbin Parker.
Anyway, I'm delighted to share this sucker with you, and as it's a FREE download I'd seriously recommend grabbing it post haste.
And as if that wasn't enough, the prolific polymath (he likes it when I call him that, makes him go all giddy) DJP is back with another awesome video to accompany it.
Right, I'm off to annoy everyone in work with my awful singing.
"No-one's gona take me aliiiiiive..."
