Hazem Beltagui


Born on the 6th of August 1988 in Alexandria, Egypt, Hazem has always been fascinated by music ever since he was a child, but its wasnt untill late 2008 that he got introduced to Electronic Dance Music in general, and Trance in particular, with the works of the likes of Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Andy Moor, Signalrunners and Solarstone just to name a few.By the Beginning of 2009, he had already made his mind and decided he would learn music production and hopefully he could make a carreer in this industry that he has always been extremely infatuated with. His first releases were mainly progressive house but still very melodic, and by the beginning of 2012, he was already being supported by some of the biggest djs in the world and has made a name for himself in the prog house scene.On January 28th, 2013, Hazem released his massive tune “We Are” on his brand new label Red Soho following unprecedented support across the board from Armin Van Buuren including it in the official A State of Trance 2013. And that was the turning point for Hazem, where he realized that this should be the sound he releases after a long hard work of beautiful progressive tunes, so he decided to make the jump to his first love, which is Trance music and he came up with the name “Melotrance” to describe his unique sound, which is characterized by the emphasis on the melodies and more importantly, the emotional impact on the listeners.The 25-year old Egyptian Sensation continues relentlessly moving forward setting the bar for what constitutes a rookie year in every possible area of his career.
