Select 226 - Mixed by Kitchen Crowd

For over 20 years, Hasan Hijjawi AKA Kitchen Crowd has been a leading figure in introducing and pushing electronic music to Amman, Jordan and the MENA region.

Back in the day, Hijjawi founded a pop up club concept called [dsiko’tek’]* which hosted the likes of industry heavyweights such as John Digweed, Rampue, Deep Dish, Audiofly, Claptone, Luca Bacchetti, Pete Tong, Atish and Jan Blomqvist just to name a few.

His groovy yet deeper sound draws from being an ‘adventurous’ college kid living in the US where he was bitten with what some may call the Chicago house bug at the infamous warehouse parties of the late 90s.

In 2018, Kitchen Crowd migrated to live by the sea in El Gouna, Egypt to pursue music full time and work on his productions which are set to be released in the near future. Going back to hosting events, In 2020, Hijjawi launched Misfits - a boutique events and booking agency that saw the likes of Traumer, Chris Stussy, Anotr, Djoko and Archie Hamilton grace its decks till date.

For Select 226 Kitchen Crowd serves up a tasty hour of groovy uplifting house including tracks from Janaret, Rhadow, Vern and his own release ‘Project X’. Listen to the set below:
