It doesn’t get much bigger in the Trance realm of EDM than Egyptian DJs Aly & Fila. EDM Charts was able to catch up with this amazing duo and pick their brains on what they’ve been up to and what is upcoming for them. Take a few minutes to read up on these Trance Titans.
Aly & Fila, thanks so much for taking some time out of the busy schedule to do an interview with EDM Charts! We’re very excited to catch up with both of you to see what’s going on!
EDM Music is completely global; there really are no boundaries. What is it like being DJs/Producers from Egypt? Have you witnessed an increase in interest in the Middle East in trance and other genres of EDM music?
For sure things have changed over the last few years, especially in Egypt, there are now many great Egyptian trance producers from Philipe El Sisi, Mohamed Ragab, and now Fady & Mina, great to it coming through, we are very pleased to have them on our record label Future Sound of Egypt
It takes time, but worth it, we get so many new tracks sent to us, ones which are really different from unknown artists, we feel the radio show over the years has highlighted many newcomers
Top 5 tracks at moment:
The idea was to have a strong follow up track with Jwaydan from We control the Sunlight, we feel her vocals again are masterful, we are very happy with Coming Home, will be released soon , we are very proud for it to be chosen to be on A State of Trance 2012
She has a wonderful voice, really hits the right chords when she sings, and creates an very powerful feel to the track, she has a bright future
Fady & Mina are starting to make great waves, Bjorn Akesson is growing and growing, same as Arctic Moon, there are many that are growing, keep an eye out for them on our label
CDJ 2000s, Pioneer DJM 900 mixer etc, very good monitors
Our latest single with Jwaydan Coming Home will be out soon, we are working on our artist album at present, due for release this summer , working also on a new remix at moment
