Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2011: Soul & Senses from Chile. Breakthrough producer - Mohamed Ragab & Brave
What's the future of DJing: It will be more common for the future that DJs will be using USB.
Favourite app: Mixmeister, because it makes it easier and quicker to do our weekly radio show while on the move
Discovery of the year: Restaurant Bellevue in Helsinki, Finland, because it's the oldest Russian restaurant outside of Russia
Rediscovery of the year: Armin Van Buuren 'Burned With Desire'. Everyone knows the lyrics and when everyone hears it, it brings back so many good memories to clubbers. We hope this kind of trance will rule in 2012

Style or substance: Substance is more important, but substance with style is even better.
Pet Hate: Delays in airports can be so long and needless sometimes.
The last 12 months have been fantastic for Egyptian trance titans Aly & Fila, the latter tells DJmag.
“The support we have received wherever we have played has been amazing.” They recently celebrated the 200th episode of their Future Sound Of Egypt radio show with a huge party in Sharm El Sheik in Egypt, and tell us that some of their other highlights of the last year have been a South American tour in June for Armada Events, playing Global Gatherings in Russia, the UK and the Ukraine, playing ASOT 500 in the Netherlands and Sydney, playing for Ferry Corsten's Full On Ferry in Ibiza for the season, and many other events.
They also mention having a covermount CD for DJmag as being a highlight, and sign off by saying: “Thank you everyone for your support.”
