Started out listening to Trance during the ASOT 400 festivities in 2009 and I got really into it and my favourite artists at the time were Cosmic Gate, Markus Schulz and of course Armin van Buuren. It took me a while to find the right DJs, producers and podcasts to follow but it was well worth it. Global DJ Broadcast still is an all-time favourite. That year I came here in Montreal to study (still studying Electrical Engineering at McGill) and I got to be more involved in the scene, ask around where the best parties are at and I got to say the first person I meet in the scene was Omar El Gamal so it was a great experience since then; getting exposed to all different kinds of events (usually at Circus Afterhours).

Then one day, at Black & Blue 2010, he told me to stick around till 9:30 so we would check the other room, the house room. As Aly & Fila (fellow Egyptian Trance DJs) finished the set, I went to the house room dead tired. Omar told me this guy will give you some inspiration you never thought existed and of course I laughed at him. His words were very true, as this guy he kept mentioning was no other than El Maestro, Hernan Cattaneo. Since then, I had equal love for Trance and House (specifically progressive) and I started looking for more of this kind of music, yet still focusing on Trance as my main genre of choice. I attended more events of this kind; with the likes of Hernan, Nick Warren, John Digweed and others making an appearance. Although I still listen (and play) Trance to some extent, my focus now is on the more progressive style stuff and that’s what I think can really destroy some dancefloors.

I would say though that I am an ‘occasional’ DJ 😛 Depends on the occasion, the nature of the event, the mood I am in and the vibe I want to set to the room, these are the deciding factors on what music I will be playing. You can hear that throughout my Lift Off podcasts that each episode is different and conveys a different message and flow.  There are soooooo many young talented producers in every genre and I try my best to find them and stay in touch (usually one-sided but I will work on that later). I am a passionate DJ. I will always play the music that I like and try my best to get the crowd excited for what’s coming. Each track means and represents something in the set. I am my worst critic. If I don’t like any mix I did no one will be as disappointed as myself and the fuel that keeps me going and make me want to improve every time I perform.
