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.

Ramp FM: Choice Cuts feat. Ewan Hoozami



New Mixtape!

I was asked to do a mix for Ramp FM's Choice Cuts show. Big ups to Paddy for the invite. Having not done a proper studio mixtape for quite a while I thought I'd go to town on this one. Also, it is the first mix I recorded with my new set up of one turntable, Rane TTM56 mixer and fully primed MPD32. It was a bit weird without the right hand deck at first, but it's also really cool having much greater live looping, FX and beat-doubling options to hand. I'm definitely going to stick with it.

Anyway, hope you dig the mix. It's dedicated to my beautiful fiancee Hayley.
