HASSAN is an R&B/Pop artist from Mississauga, Ontario. He is quickly becoming global and has been quoted as the “way ahead of his competition” – Ron Lopata (VP of A&R at Warner Music Canada). Despite being an independent artist, HASSAN has been able to garner fans from across the world through a solid online fanbase.
HASSAN released his first studio EP, “Arpeggio”, on May 27. It was very well received at his release party at a popular Toronto venue, SET on King. Arpeggio was created with the input of many talented and credible individuals. Amongst others, Cash Money songwriters and producers assisted in the development of the EP. In addition, Chris Crerar (Metalworks Institute), who has worked alongside Prince, The Weeknd, Backstreet Boys, Triumph, Eddie Kramer and many more, assisted in the post-production of Arpeggio. During the Mastering Session, Chris had nothing but positive feedback on the project: “Great tracks!… Arpeggio is a very well put-together project.” This EP was the product of the contribution of like-minded and experienced individuals and is HASSAN’s best work – to date.
Furthermore, HASSAN has experience performing at numerous shows at an array of venues that include nightclubs and University pubs to Canada’s hippest music club – The Rivoli where the likes of The Frantics, Adele, Sean Cullen and the infamous Dark Shows, among others, have previously performed. At the iStandards Producer Showcase during NXNE 2014, Boi-1da (Producer for Drake, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown, etc.) was quoted to state that “[HASSAN’s] production extends beyond beat battles… He should be scoring for films.”
HASSAN’s latest single, Akhan Vich Akhan, a Punjabi/English Pop and R&B Fusion song was released on August 14th. The single is available for download on his official website.
