Robert Owens will be performing a live vocal performance and DJ set!

With nearly 20 years as a singer, producer and dj, Robert Owens is a house music icon. His signature vocal style has been featured on countless house anthems both recent and from the early years of house.
Bursting onto the house scene with "Donnie" by The It on DJ International Records, Robert soon teamed up with the legendary Larry Heard (a.k.a. Mr. Fingers) who together in 1988 released "Another Side" - one of the first house LP's ever produced and featured numerous classics like: "Bring Down The Walls", "I'm Strong", "Distant Planet", "A Path", "Mysteries Of Love" and more.
Soon after, Robert teamed up with superstars Frankie Knuckles and Satoshi Tomiie to deliver "Tears" and a few years later with David Morales to deliver "I'll Be Your Friend".
Moving to England in 1993, Robert soon set up his own label - Musical Directions, releasing international club hits like "Ordinary People" and "Was I Here Before" with Jackmaster Funk and Chip E. Having been sampled and admired by many producers in the drum n' bass scene in the late 90's Robert's vocals have even graced the decks on great tracks by Total Science on Hospital Records and with famed d n' b producer Photek which gave us "Mine To Give".
