Aly & Fila
Future Sound Of Egypt
Sunday 20:00 – 22:00
As hot as the Sahara and standing every bit as tall as the Pyramids, Aly & Fila are the single most successful group to have emerged from the spiritual lands of Egypt and they are now, without question, one of the world’s biggest A list electronic headliner acts.
From the Med to the Red and from up high in Cairo to down deep in the Sinai they built an immense, ultra-loyal local following from which turntable shamans Aly Amr Fathalah and Fadi Wassef Naguib then went global with their huge career-launching Egyptrance releases – including their debut singles ‘Eye of Horus’ and ‘Spirit of Ka’.
Since then they’ve continued to release an endless series of global hits right up to the recent master-blasters like ‘We Control The Sunlight’, Perfect Love’, ‘Running Out of Time’, and ‘Mysteries Unfold’.
For close to a decade their spirited take on the trance sound has captured the hearts, minds and imaginations of the planet’s electronic community. With their whip-smart productions and sandstorm sonics, their live performances have raised the bar at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals and clubs including EDC, Tomorrowland, Global Gathering, Dance Valley, Stereosonic and WMC to name just a few.
ASOT 650 was the 8th successive year Aly & Fila have appeared at Armin van Buuren’s huge annual A State of Trance events, meaning the Egyptian duo are now the only spinners aside from Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz to have played such a run – a testament to the demand from trance fans worldwide.
Add to this seven consecutive years in DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs poll (reaching #20 in 2013) and a #1 notch on this year’s Trance Podiums Top 50 DJs, #1 DJ in the Middle Eastern Music Awards and a nomination for Best Trance DJ at this year’s Ibiza DJ Awards – it’s evident just how much love for the group there is out there.
