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 anything to go by it won’t disappoint. Expect filtered hip-hop breaks, with glitch and wobble circuitry plus solid vocals from Colleen Quinn, Bristol-based rapper Blacksmith (on EP standout Through With Love) and – er – Ewan Hoozami as well. What? Yep – the man’s taken vocals in-house, partially anyway, and he does so like a duck to water. He plays, he produces, he raps…gotta be a replicant.
Fire In Me is now available to download on a ‘name your price’ deal so anything from free upwards basically.
