Aly & Fila took to social media to spread the news: “It is a great honor for us to be asked to do the Essential Mix. The Trance community spoke, BBC Radio 1 answered; be ready for February 13th.”
Aly & Fila are widely considered to be top players in Trance music. Throughout the years, the Egyptian Trance champions took their highly energetic performances to the most illustrious venues and events in the world, have churned out a legion of Trance classics, and have given the brightest of talents a chance to shine on their own imprints: Future Sound Of Egypt and Future Sound Of Egypt Excelsior.
