Aly & Fila – A Closer Look

AAA was an event held across 3 cities, 10 clubs, and boasted of 15 DJs. The first event of its kind, AAA allowed multiple access to different venues and events with just ONE powerful wristband. It was our contribution to the revolution of clubbing in India!

Rising stars from Egypt, Aly & Fila join an increasingly growing list of extremely talented djs and producers for the future. They need no introduction as Egypt’s most talented and demanded DJs. . After falling in love with the music of Paul Van Dyk, Steve Helstrip and Chicane they built their first small studio and started doing electronic music and djing from 1999. After establishing themselves in Egypt they decided to go international. They have played alongside the worlds biggest DJs and at the country`s hottest venues as well as some of Germanys biggest clubs. They have been seen spinning with Tall Paul, Sonique, Sultan and Tonedepth, John 00 Fleming, Scott Bond, Ben Lost, Satoshi Tomiiee, Darren Christian, Sonorous, Kyau vs Albert, Andy Manston and many more. They were also featured in club tours such as Ministry of Sound, Clockwork Orange, Godskitchen, The Gallery and Renaissance.

We managed to catch them for a quick few words before unleashing them upon you.

1.  You’re one of the few well-know Egyptian EDM producers out there. Tell us a little bit about the scene back home and how you guys got into it?

The scene in Egypt is mainly House music, but in the last few years we have been trying to raise the profile of our genre of music through more events in Egypt – our own FSOE branded events and also our Radio Show which is weekly, called Future Sound of Egypt is on Nile FM in Cairo. There are more and more producers coming from Egypt who are really really good.

2.  So being a duo, what would you say each of your roles are in your process? Does one of you like to produce more or DJ more? Or is it split pretty 50-50? How does that work?

Aly is unable to DJ due to an accident 6 years ago with his ear, so its just Fila who represents the brand worldwide DJing. But we both make music together in our studios, we know each others strengths after 10 years. But we are also always learning each day.
