Aly Amr Fathalah (aka Aly) and Fadi Wassef Naguib (aka Fila). Aly and Fila were both born in 1981 and have known each other since kindergarten. 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 since 1999.
They host an internet radio show every Monday on Digitally Imported radio, called Future Sound of Egypt. Aly & Fila celebrated the 200th episode of their hugely successful radio show by throwing an event in Egypt itself, as it has a huge fan following. Their first release, “Eye of Horus” received huge airplay from the likes of Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, DJ Tiësto and many others. The track “We Control the Sunlight” was chosen as “Tune of the Year” in the Radio Show ‘A State of Trance’, a weekly radio show hosted by prominent trance producer DJ Armin van Buuren.
