ALY & FILA
As hot as the Sahara and standing every bit as tall as pyramids, theyre the single most successful group to have emerged from the spiritual lands of Egypt. From the Med to the Red and from up high in Cairo, to down deep in the Sinai, theyve built an immense, ultra-loyal in-country following, From that foothold turntable Shamans, Aly Amr Fathalah and Fadi Wassef Naguib went global. With their career-launching Egyptrance releases (inc. Eye of Horus and Spirit of Ka) through to latter-day master-blasters like We Control The Sunlight, their production credentials are only now matched by their spinning ones. Ranked as one of the 20 biggest DJ acts in EDM (source: DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs 2012), they delight crowds now numbered annually in the millions, bringing their inimitable sound to the worlds most prestigious clubs and festivals. No mirage, no illusion – this is Aly & Fila.
For close to a decade their spirited take on the trance sound has captured the hearts, minds and imaginations of planet trance. With their whip-smart productions and sandstorm sonics, their performances have raised the bar at some of the worlds most recognized clubs. Comparably theyve also ruled at EDMs biggest festivals EDC – Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, Global Gathering, Dance Valley, Stereosonic, WMC and Full On Ferry to name just a few. Continuing in a long tradition of playing the worlds most established and respected stages, in Spring 2013 they will rock ASOT600. Marking the 7th successive year theyd done so, the Egyptian duo are the only spinners aside from Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz to have played such a run. This combined force of production and turntable feats has resulted in string of high charting positions in several of EDMs key polls. Included amongst them are six consecutive years in DJ Mags annual countdown (reaching #19 in 2012) and a #4 notch on TranceAddicts Top 250 in the same year.
Spreading the A&F message around the globe is their Future Sound of Egypt radio show. Beaming to countless thousands of desktops every week, August 2012 saw its 250th episode hit airwaves. This was marked by the FSOE250 event, which drew fans from all four corners to the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheik to see them spin alongside DJs inc. Ferry Corsten, W&W, Shogun and Sean Tyas. With the 300th show primed for 2013, FSOE300 will expand into a multi-date, multi-country world tour experience.
The Future Sound of Egypt marque is further amplified by Aly & Filas widely respected imprint of the same name. A label sub-division of the industry leading Armada Music empire, through it they have rained continuous floor-fire, with one A-list championed release following another. With We Control the Sunlight, the pair scored the biggest trance track of the year when the listeners of Armin Van Buuren's A State of Trance radio show voted it Tune of 2011. Throughout 2012 they continued to bring some of the years best music to club & festival sound-systems. Among them were collaborations with Roger Shah (on Perfect Love) and Solarstone with Fireisland. It also saw them re-team with We Control singer Jawden on Coming Home, for a track that DJ Mag cited as making hairs stand up, goosebumps pop, hands shoot up and jaws meet floors! They also reworked Gareth Emerys Concrete Angel (which subsequently became the best-selling trance track of 2012), as well as other smash tracks from Andy Moor and Alex M.O.R.P.H.
Into the New Year and the cyphers for A&Fs future are every bit as filled with promise. Continuing to hold floors spellbound, their latest collaboration Vapourize (alongside John OCallaghan) has already delivered another Beatport slam-dunk. The single is the pathfinder release for the pairs hugely anticipated sophomore artist album Quiet Storm. The follow-up to 2010s Rising Sun debut, the long-players mission kismet is to bring another gravity defying selection of anthems to the worlds floors. Quiet Storms surge is set for 2013.
