CAIRO – 19 April 2018: Egyptian composer Ramy Blazin signed a deal with Sony Music and Ultra Records, thanks to his talent of fusing eastern and western music together with great proficiency, all while preserving the identity of traditional Egyptian music.
“Listening to and composing music have been my passion since childhood, and I have always dreamt of introducing a new kind of music to the music scene. The first musical instrument I picked up when I was 16 years old was a guitar,” Blazin, 29, told Egypt Today.
He remarked that he has been known as Blazin since 2008, as he was famous for incorporating house music in his fusions.

In 2013, he created for the first time a great mix between electro house music and folk music and posted it on social media; he called this kind of music electro-folk music.
Blazin could attract the attention of many people on stage not only because of the music he composes, but also due to his charming stage presence – what Blazin calls “crowd control” – which is clear in the interaction between Blazin and the audience.
His song "Happy Festival", a modified version of the famous song "Happy" that was written, produced and performed by American singer Pharrell Williams, helped make him famous.
Since then, his gift has attracted the attention of Sony Music and Ultra Records as well as many foreign bands including pop band Akcent, and Romanian singer Inna, with whom he has worked recently.
Blazin also revealed that he worked with many Egyptian singers such as Ehab Tawfiq, adding that he will release five new songs in the coming period, including one with Haifa Wehbe.
