With politics reaching a boiling point in the Middle East, the hottest thing out of Egypt lately is electronic dance group Aly & Fila. You can imagine our excitement as we received an invite to meet the duo at one of the hottest nightclub destinations in the OC, Sutra.

Sutra OC is located in the “Triangle Square” plaza in Costa Mesa and truly ranks as one of the most high energy, interactive yet surprisingly intimate places to catch top tier artists. Sutra’s design features the DJ stage in the center with a wraparound floor plan, providing guests an amazing vantage point from every angle. The Sutra staff is always professional and courteous.

Aly & Fila’s much anticipated performance was received well by a sold out crowd representing their growing international and American audience. Recently ranked 19th on DJ Mag’s Top 100, the group has covered the four corners of the world with notable stops from EDC Vegas to WMC Miami to Tomorrowland Amsterdam. Aly & Fila plan on celebrating their 300th show May 5 at FSOE 2013 at the Sharm El Sheik resort in Egypt.

Listening to the uplifting and empowering style of the group, one can easily understand why their track “We Control the Sunlight” was chosen as “Tune of the Year” on Armin Van Buuren’s show A State of Trance in 2011.

Aly & Fila have recently collaborated with Roger Shah on ‘Perfect Love’, Solarstone with ‘Fireisland’ and ‘Vaporiz’ (alongside John O’Callaghan) that will be featured on their upcoming 2013 album “Quiet Storm.”

Be sure to catch Aly & Fila’s guest mix this Sunday April 28 from 2-4am (PST) on Power 106 Los Angeles Powertools Mixshow. From there, the duo will head out to Nicaragua and Colombia for a few shows before returning to Southern California May 3 for Awakening at Exchange LA presented by Insomniac.

We look forward to interviewing Aly & Fila before their show at the Exchange on what promises to be an exciting evening in Los Angeles.
