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.

Telephunken - Shake Your Monkey Remixed - OUT NOW!

The excellent Tremendo label is back once again, not with the renegade master, but with it's head honcho Telephunken's smash hit 'Shake Your Monkey' re-released with a slew of dope remixes.
Busta and Basement Freaks join me on the remix duties, each of us taking the key elements of the original and reworking them in our own styles.

Free Download, a DJ Mix and a track to buy!

The last few installments of my bloggings have been noticeably me-free... and it's been nice to dwell on other people's work for a while.
But, time ticks by and I release more music by the boatload... and since this is my blog, I should probably blog it.

I'm not going to review my new tracks, as that would be self-indulgent even by my standards. All I will say is that I, personally, really like them. And sometimes, in art, all that really matters is the sense of fulfilment from creating pieces that you actually like.

FREE DOWNLOAD - Through with Love
Electronic Soul

TO BUY - You're Mine
Bulabeats BB040

A 45 minutes or so mix I forgot I'd recorded at the end of 2011. Pretty much all around 100bpm, some nice glitchy sounds, lots of bass, some classic hip-hop, a bit of turntablism and the first incarnation of Box Rocket's Avalanches remix, which you'll never hear anywhere else.
This is just a bit of fun, don't take it too seriously!

The Allergies' debut single drops

Having graced this page a mere matter of days ago, I'm pleased to announce The Allergies have dropped what can only be described as their first single - a double A-Side featuring tracks 'Big Star' and 'Symphonics'.
Big Star is highly likeable - a swaying arrangement of snatched soul vocals, lush instrumentation and flowing beats.
But it's 'Symphonica' which does it most for me - the punching percussion, deep swirling atmospherics and beautifully eq'd samples that sit snugly on the driving bass line is, to me, reminiscent of classic Fatboy Slim.
All in all a great listening experience with something for the living room and something for the dancefloor. Tidy.

Oh, and it's FREE!
