Hgroove Hassan Enjoys Engaging with his Fans

HGroove (Hassan Dahik) is an Ecuadorian artist based in LA. His high energy Latin sound is comprised of a mix of Ska, Funk, Hip hop and Rock. He can usually be heard at Los Angeles venues such as The Mint, and The State Social House but Covid changed this... “Covid has changed my work since there are no more gigs or tours I can be part of now. But it has given the opportunity to reinvent and innovate on an online manner, that’s why I have focused more on streaming and connecting with other people online, it’s has been awesome because I have reach people from other parts of the world like the UK, Panama, Japan, Indonesia and other countries.” Says Dahik.

He is best known and praised for his live shows. The frontman and bassist plays with intensity and a hyper spirit, which gets every crowd dancing. When HGroove was 11 years old, he went to his dad’s house in Chicago and discovered a room full of instruments. He was automatically drawn to the bass. He picked up the instrument and hasn’t stopped grooving for 15 years.

He was a self-taught bassist for 6 years before he began his music education at Universidad de Las Americas. He studied bass performance for 3 years, during which he often performed live and gained a following because of his energetic showmanship and melodic songwriting.

In 2015 Hassan received a scholarship to attend LA College of Music where he received a degree in Songwriting. During that time, he continued to build his following in Los Angeles, all while independently writing, recording, and releasing music.

Hassan has released four singles, “Amazing Life,”, “Freestyle Fiesta,” “Que Pasa” and “California Guy” as well as releasing songs with other bands that had been people’s favorites for some years, all of these are available on all streaming platforms.

When we asked him about his single Freestyle Fiesta he said “The song talks about parties I used to have with my friends. I wanted to capture in a song a really energetic, fun party in a song where you see crazy things and you are just there enjoying life, being yourself and having an incredible time with your friends.”
