FIRST DEGREE BURNS: Bright Eyes (Ewan Hoozami Remix) (2014) Free download

Bright Eyes FDB Ewan HoozamiEwan Hoozami goes all dub-breaks-2-step inna remix stylee here on First Degree Burns‘ organic original Bright Eyes. Well – I say ‘original’ – clearly that title and the lyric, “Bright Eyes/ Burning like fire…” owe a slight debt to the Art Garfunkel hit of Watership Down theme fame. I’m pretty sure Garfunkel’s chorus didn’t continue, “…I can read your every thought/ Your every heart’s desire

EWAN HOOZAMI: Disco For Lovers mix (2014) Free download

Disco For Lovers Ewan Hoozami…and the disco-related fare continues to flow this week like cocaine and sexual fluids in the toilets of Studio 54. I say ‘toilets’ – ‘toilets, dancefloor, stairwells, corridors and fire exits – hell pretty much anywhere really. This time it’s Ewan Hoozami getting his hustle on with twenty-two track Disco For Lovers mix of original disco, ‘nu’ disco and – ahem – house. So what’s the

GOODGROOVE presents: EWAN HOOZAMI (2014) + Field Music mix free download

Goodgroove presents Ewan HoozamiNext up from the Goodgroove gang is this six-tracker (plus two bonus cuts) on which they present the latest work of Bristol-to-Brighton transplant Ewan Hoozami. Not only does our man go back to his nu-funk roots but virtually everything on this is down to him: music, cuts and even vocals in one instance since he sings a hook and raps on Ginger & Lime. Maybe he should

EWAN HOOZAMI: International Gangsta (2014) Free download

International Gangsta Ewan HoozamiEwan Hoozami takes a break from all that Robot Soul-ing to deliver a fairly surefire crowd-pleaser with International Gangsta. Lifting the Pastime Paradise Stevie Wonder sample from Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise, he does away with the shit bit (i.e. Coolio), and adds a rolling break plus a smidgin of instro from The Pharcyde’s Passing Me By. So far so good but what about a vocal? How about one

EWAN HOOZAMI: Manorism EP (2013) + ‘You’re Mine’ free download

The title of Ewan Hoozami‘s Manorism EP is apparently a celebration of the antics that he and his dj crew Funk From The Trunk indulge in at their annual invasion of Boomtown Fair a.k.a. Funkington Manor. It’s a four track affair featuring nu-funk, latin and swing breaks and what Hoozami is pleased to call ‘crack gospel.’ This last refers to final track, Let There Be Light, which sandwiches a

EWAN HOOZAMI: Skin Too Deep (2013)

Skin too deep? Leave the old flesh and get your robot on, then. Say hello, once again this month, to Ewan Hoozami who gives further clues to the nature of his forthcoming Robot Soul LP with lead single Skin Too Deep on which he ventures far into the faintly neon-lit synth murk of eighties disco-funk and rocks his own vocals with such aplomb that he’s in imminent danger of invading Planet Pop. If you want a visual metaphor for this number

LAZY HABITS: Even Out (Ewan Hoozami remix) (2013) Free download

Bristol bass don Ewan Hoozami grabs London-based hip-hop/ 8 piece brass outfit Lazy Habits’ funky cautionary tale by the horns (see what I did there) and transmutes it into something a little more 21st century. Subtly mind – different break and some moody synth – oh and a lovely stompy bridge. Plus it’s free for you to download – which is nice. Don’t forget to say thanks. I should point out that this did actually arrive on my virtual doormat on Monday

EWAN HOOZAMI: Fire In Me EP (2013) Free download

Do androids dream of electric sheep? Couldn’t tell you – I’m not an android. Well, I say ‘not’ – there was that whole episode with the origami unicorn…anyway – whatever androids dream of, it’s a fairly sure bet that they get down to a bit of robot soul at the replicant roadhouse. Which is where Bristol producer Ewan Hoozami comes in. His new album Robot Soul is out soon and if teaser EP Fire In Me is

BIG M presents: EZ Icarus – Funky Vine (2012)

Hey everybody, it’s EZ Icarus with his track Funky Vine whereon he walks the bass through a 140 bpm breaks/dnb thing complete with chopped up vox from a soul sister version of Marvin classic I Heard It Through The Grapevine. Yet another BigM release hot on the heels of two others? I bet you’re wondering how I knew? It took me by surprise when I found out yesterday. Just fucking with you

THE GEMINI BROS: Trump Skyscrapers (2012)

BigM’s latest drop sees The Gemini Bros deliver four-tracker Trump Skyscrapers. When I was a kid ‘trump’ was the word one of my mates dad’s used as a euphemism for a fart (bear with me – this is going somewhere) so you can imagine my amusement when I discovered there was an obscenely rich bloke called Donald Trump. Somehow it was appropriate. Anyway
