“Egyptian duo Fady & Mina follow the steps of Aly & Fila, as they make their debut on the Future Sound of Egypt label with the highly energetic 'Overdrive' and 'Egypt'.
To be compared to Aly & Fila is nothing but a huge compliment to Egyptian duo Fady & Mina. The young talents, born in Egypt's city of Cairo, are the next big thing to hit the higher BPM kind of trance.
They do so, by making an unforgettable debut with the contagious 'Overdrive' and 'Egypt'. If hard-hitting, energy-driven trance with a sensitive touch is your one true love, you don't want to miss out on 'Overdrive'. That fast speed of beats also drives the grand, melodic track of 'Egypt'.
An ode to their country and its rich, unrivalled history.”
