Aly & Fila – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix
Here it is folks. The first trance essential mix in two years. Bask in it’s glory because it’s everything you want and more. Aly & Fila, the very well established DJs in the trance and electronic music community, tackle their first Essential Mix. Deservedly so as they pulled off a landmark feat: playing at the base of the Pyramids of Giza to celebrate 400 episodes of their radio show Future Sound of Egypt. They’ve also released 4 albums, 8 compilations and 37 singles while being voted into the DJ Mag top 100 poll every year since 2008.
In their Essential Mix debut, they play 34 world exclusives in a beautifully transcribed mix. It features a remix of a timeless classic by the essential mixers themselves, Ferry Corsten’s “Beautiful” takes on a new light alongside other tunes from John Askew, Ferry Tayle, Pure NRG, Solarstone, Simon Patterson, The Thrillseekers and a tune from Aly & Fila as well as a ton of new material from their FSOE label. I’m going to keep this short and let the mix do the talking. Enjoy this magical two hour, uplifting journey.
