Aly Amr Fathalah (Aly) and Fadi Wassef Naguib (Fila), the Egyptian duo, 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 from 1999. Once they established themselves in Egypt, they decided to go international signing with the German record label Euphonic Records in 2002. 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 was licensed to Fundamental Recordings in the Netherlands and reached number 4 position in the Dutch Dance charts.
Aly & Fila celebrated the 200th episode of their hugely successful radio show Future Sound Of Egypt 200 by throwing an event in their native Egypt on Friday, December 2, 2011. Set to light up the chosen venue of Echo Temple in Sharm El Sheikh, the line-up included some of the hottest dance acts on the scene at the time, including John O’Callaghan, Roger Shah, Sied Van Riel and many others. Echo Temple is tailor-made for trance fans prepared to dance long into the night at the foot of the Sinai Mountains, and is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest outdoor clubs because of its truly unique experience. They became one of Top 100 DJs on 2011(#22), 2012(#19), 2013(#20), 2014(#28), 2015 (#42), and 2016(#41).
While both continue to produce music together, only Fadi currently goes on tour since Aly suffered a severe ear injury while performing and was advised to avoid loud music or risk losing the hearing in that ear altogether.
