After emerging from WMC 2003 with URB magazine's Best New Tune - Dirty Gringos 'Cowbell', Hisham Samawi releases two new tracks. Both of which are slated for inclusion on James Zabiela's new album. Listen and review these new tracks right here.
DJ/Producer Hisham Samawi is leading the charge on launching Native Theory, a brand spanking new NYC-based label. Two of his original productions will appear on the labelís debut 12" "Holding On / Spirals". Says Hisham, "None of our tracks fit neatly into the predefined genres that often stigmatize existing labels. At the end of the day, we believe in the quality of our music and are proud to release it on our new label." Together with production partner Dennis Rodgers (112 Crew) there are already several tracks set for release later this year.
Born in Libya and raised in Switzerland, Hisham Samawi is currently part of the new wave of talented DJs & producers (finally) emerging from New York City. Notable globetrotting DJs Lee Burridge and James Zabiela both regarded Hisham as one of the best new artists to emerge from Winter Music Conference 2004. During the last year, Hisham divided his time in the studio and with gigs around the world. In early 2004, Hisham completed an Asia tour with headlining gigs in Bangkok, Singapore, and Dubai and has also graced the decks at all the major NYC clubs; Centro-Fly (RIP), Discotheque, Filter 14, Sullivan Room and the closing party at Arc with Lee Burridge and the 112 Crew.
As featured on James Zabiela's upcoming Renaissance:ALiVE compilation. Release Date: July 2004
