Nasr Mahrous - Record Business

Record Business

In the late 1980s Nasr Mahrous began his own business after he discovered his passion for music and his ability to make a special style of Arabic music.

He founded his record company by the name of Free Music-Nasr Mahrous Star Maker.

Amin Sami was the first singer discovered by Nasr, he signed with the company and released three successful albums.

Nasr rediscovered artists, wiped off the dust on some, polished the vocals of others and refreshed their talents, and helped them successfully go back to the top of the charts in new styles and looks.

He started with Samir Sroor who was in the 1970s one of the best saxophone players in the Arab world, he was a member of Al- Maseyah Band with the late singer Abdel Halim Hafez. Sroor stopped playing music for a time after the death of Abdel Halim Hafez in the late 1970s. Nasr Mahrous being a fan of Abdel Halim Hafez's art, he got in contact with Sroor and together they released five instrumental albums under the name (Ashek El-Sax) meaning Saxophone Lover. The albums includes instrumental pieces from Abdel Halim Hafez's most famous tracks.

Khaled Agag is another example of a great masculine voice, but not great luck with record companies, until he met Nasr Mahrou. He released four successful albums with a few huge hits and a couple of video clips directed by Nasr Mahrous.

Mohammed Fouad was already a well known singer, but as he was working on his debut film Ismaeleya Rayeh Gaay he met Nasr Mahrous who was producing its soundtrack album Kamannana and that was the first album signed between them. Both film and soundtrack were a success, so the artist and the producer released another album Elhob Elhaee’ee with a video clip of the song Elhob Elhaee’ee meaning "The True Love". It was filmed in a school (Collège de la Salle) with hundreds of children kids singing about the true love of family members.

Mohamed Mohie was a young artist who released a couple of albums but was looking for a good production company to enhance his talent, so he joined the team of Free Music, and released two albums of which Nasr Mahrous directed three video clips of the hit songs.

In the 1980s Nasr Mahrous was a fan of Mohamed Mouir who was a well known pop artist, but stayed quite far away from the music world for a long time. He signed under the label of Free Music in 2000 and released his first album (Fi Eshk Elbanat – In the love of girls) which was a success, and they both decided to go for another album (Albi Masaken shaabeya – My Heart is suburbs) and filmed the video clip of So, Ya So.

Famous quotes containing the words business and/or record:

    It is the business of thought to define things, to find the boundaries; thought, indeed, is a ceaseless process of definition. It is the business of Art to give things shape. Anyone who takes no delight in the firm outline of an object, or in its essential character, has no artistic sense.... He cannot even be nourished by Art. Like Ephraim, he feeds upon the East wind, which has no boundaries.
    Vance Palmer (1885–1959)

    The history of the world is the record of the weakness, frailty and death of public opinion.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
