Ewan Hoozami (Pronounced: "You and whose army") is a party starter extraordinaire based in Brighton, UK. Best known as a DJ/Producer, he is also frontman, singer and songwriter for his own band 'Ewan Hoozami Live'.
Residencies include the Craig Charles Funk n Soul Club with music played by the likes of BBC Radio 6 and BBC Introducing.
Ewan Hoozami's DJ sets are a dynamite blend of technical skills, expert selections, home-made bangers and a natural affinity with his audience that has seen him upstage many a headliner, from his birthplace of Bristol, to Athens and Croatia via clubs and festivals all over the UK. Loosely centred around funk, hip-hop and disco, his performances take the audience on a rambunctious journey through the broadest beats, breaks and grooves known to man.
His production and songwriting, as showcased by his live band, display an equally potent but often more soulful approach, as he crafts music that reflects his perceptions of the world around him.
A disciple of hip-hop culture, he was raised a crate-digger, turntablist and rapper, yet possessed with a little blue-eyed soul, an appetite for studio-experimentation and a passion for searching out the grey areas in between genres, his music often defies easy categorization, leaving him to coin his own sound - Robot Soul.
"My approach is simple: there is great music in every genre, so why limit yourself? I love making people dance, so I spend most of my energy on uptempo music, but I also need to be able to express myself through music that deals with the full range of human emotions. I get as wildly excited about finding strange records from bygone eras as I do about discovering the most pioneering new music, and I hope my music reflects that."
Ewan's technical skills include a unique 'one-deck' DJ style fusing vinyl techniques with digital trickery, fast-as-lightning MPC routines, intelligent and heart-felt lyricism, a critically-acclaimed singing voice and intelligent rap flows.
With the worldwide release of his Robot Soul album featuring on iTunes' front page, his debut artist EP on legendary funk/breaks imprint Goodgroove Records, and having been described as an "Emerging Icon" by the world-famous Huffington Post, Ewan Hoozami is a 'rising talent in British music'
