Egyptian born Hisham Zahran is certainly making a name for himself in the clubbing world.
Submerged in electronic music for as long as he can remember, it is with no surprise that by the age of 18 he set out to learn the tricks of table turning. He instantly developed a refined ability to select tunes, particularly influenced by thelikes of John Digweed, Jody Wisternoff and Steve Lawler, who taught him the secret to leading a club and its crowd from behind the decks.
At first, Hisham started djing in the local clubbing scene in some of the biggest venues of Egypt such as Summermoon, Andrea Sakkara, Moods Beach and Ghazala Beach . These clubs have hosted world renowned djs including Dave Seaman, Sander Kleinenberg, Anthony Pappa, Mathew Dekay and Sultan. But Hisham has firmly distinguished himself with his deep, melodic progressive and tech House, making him a favorite amongst Egyptian clubbers.
In 2007, Hisham competed in the prestigious Heineken Thirst Competition held in Egypt every two years, where he successfully qualified in the finals that included 8 djs out of 60 submissions.
Currently, Hisham hosts a monthly show on Proton Radio called "The Next Level", which has been airing for three years every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6am EST. The show offers a wise and current selection of the best deep, progressive and tech house tunes.
Eventually, Hisham's passionate love for music and dedication towards chasing new music was recognized by Dubfunk (Global Underground, Audio Therapy) who offered him an A&R position at his label Dyami Records. 2009 and 2010 have been very fruitful for Hisham’s musical career, with a few international gigs lining-up as well as a production duo started with his brother Adham.
Hisham has also started a new label called ‘Union Jack Records’ with Frank kenfold and Memo Insua in hopes of releasing the best in deep, tech and progressive house.
