Inspired from an early age by trance legends such as Ferry Corsten and Armin van Buuren, Ahmed Romel started his journey through the world of music production all the way back in 2011. With a style that has evolved over the years into an eclectic mix of sounds that range from the hardest-hitting trance all the way to stripped-down melodic beats bordering on techno, Romel has experienced a great deal of what the trance world has to offer.
Throughout his extended odyssey within the world of trance, Romel has had the distinct honor of working with several of the biggest brands in the scene, label imprints such as A State of Trance (ASOT), Future Sound of Egypt (FSOE), and Blue Soho. His latest release, a masterwork 16-track album titled Rüya, marks his triumphant return to Aly & Fila's legendary FSOE label.
In a melodically driven body of work at its heart, Romel manages to infuse his long-developed signature sound into both hard trance, as well as softer, more melodic and uplifting productions. Throughout Rüya, Romel enlisted a variety of talented producers and vocalists, showcasing his work alongside artists such as Driftmoon, Reverie, Aisling Jarvis, Roxanne Emery, and Hazem Beltagui.
