SONG OF THE DAY: Aly & Fila vs Bjorn Akesson – “Sand Theme (FSOE250 Anthem)”

Egyptian trance producers Aly & Fila celebrate the 250th broadcast of their Future Sound of Egypt radio show with the aptly titled “Sand Theme.” The original mix, a collaboration with Swedish producer Bjorn Akesson, melds classic soothing trance elements (is that a reference to Chicane “Saltwater”) with sitar-like strings and glitchy noises for a sparse yet uplifting feel. Fully embracing the “trance 2.0” vibe, Argentinian producer Chris Schweizer intensifies the energy with aggressive synths and harder beats that propel with the build up to a pounding, erm, sandstorm. All puns aside, lovers of harder electro trance should definitely check out this international flavored track.
