Leaving New York behind, Robert relocated to London in 1993 where he founded his own label imprint, Musical Directions, and started assembling his own studio. He continued composing and singing on a series of dance classics such as Love Will Find Its Way and Ordinary People and collaborated with a remarkable list of influential artists like Sandy Rivera and Photek (on his smash hit Mine to Give), and more recently with Ron Trent and Coldcut on the stunning Walk A Mile In My Shoes single.
Robert also stayed true to his records spinning club roots. As an innovative and globally in-demand DJ, he is still dazzling crowds across the UK, Europe, Japan and America with his special blend of the deepest house and electronica. He also established two successful London club residencies – Journeys at The Egg and 2 Feet Deep at The Key.
The next chapter in the Robert Owens tale is his brilliant 2008 album Night-Time Stories. Robert’s latest musical offering is an incredibly cohesive collection of collaborations with some of contemporary house music’s biggest and most respected names. Producers like Jimpster, Atjazz, Marc Romboy, Kid Massive, Kirk Degiorgio and Ian Pooley all demonstrated their talents, which combined with Robert’s famous voice, made this one of the most exciting and anticipated dance records of 2008! The first single Merging (produced by Dutch duo TJ Kong and Nuno Dos Santos) received massive support from key players like Osunlade, Frank Roger, Fred Everything, Marcus Worgul, King Britt … This overwhelming response is heralded a shift in the state of the art. People are getting weary of minimalistic tracks – they want some vocals back in – and they want some soul back in!
His most recent releases include the Art Remixes EP 1 on Compost Records and the incredible single Celebration featuring TJ Kong and Russ Gabriel, released on Large Records...
