“Robot Soul” by Ewan Hoozami

Ewan Hoozami shoot 2014 Ghost ShotEwan Hoozami (Pronounced: /youˈn’hooz’arr’mee / YOU-n-hooz-ARR-mee / “You and whose army”) is a DJ/Producer/Vocalist and the frontman for his own band ‘Ewan Hoozami Live’, based in Brighton, UK. He’s smashed stages the world over with a technical blend of party-rocking funk, beats and bass, while winning legions of fans for his unique songwriting and multi-instrumentalism.

A disciple of hip-hop culture, he was raised a crate-digger, turntablist and rapper, yet possessed with a little blue-eyed soul and an appetite for studio-experimentation, his music often defies easy categorization, leaving him to coin his own genre – Robot Soul.

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’
