Handpicked by Ministry of Sound, Aly & Fila recently curated the latest edition of the celebrated Trance Nation compilation, which features a handful of never-before-heard exclusives. “The Trance Nation compilations are legendary,” said Aly & Fila. “We listened to the original volumes mixed by Ferry Corsten over and over until we wore the CDs out.” The Egyptian duo’s mix includes tracks from John O’Callaghan, Lange, Thrillseekers and, of course, their own originals. Peep this Insomniac Five with Fila to learn more about the twosome.
