Hassan Abou Alam (EG)


Hassan Abou Alam is one of Egypt’s musical exports, steadily publishing his work since 2008. He has featured on diverse labels across the globe such as Rhythm Section, Banoffee Pies, Naive, Casa Voyager and more.

For the past 15 years, Hassan has been playing around with his gear, forging multiple live performances. A hard to pin down sound that utilizes analog and digital instruments, a form of organized chaos that he portrays with extreme finesse—his Boiler Room set is testament to his genre bending capabilities. Through Red Bull’s RBMA Abou Alam was given a chance to mingle musically with the ancient people of Luxor. The result? A phenomenal live performance in Cairo fusing traditional folklore with electronica, successfully pinning him as one of Egypt’s most versatile musicians.
