It's been another exceptional year for Dutchman Fadil El Ghoul as he continues to cast his wavy spells while shinning his way up the EDM tree. Building on the dizzy heights of 2017, during which he released his debut album ‘Trouble’, Fadil released yet another LP ‘The Wave’. Rippling with beaty airwave-friendly chills and feels, his latest long’un plays the consummate foil to his much more energetic DJ style.
Renowned for playing across the big room board, Fadil has spent yet another year jolting crowds across the globe with his emotional selector shockwaves. There’s one particular corner of the world he’s found particularly exciting. “I am really focused on touring in Asia,” he tells us. “I think China is a lot of fun to play. The fans and energy there are incredible.”
Already working on album number three, we suspect 2019 will be exceptional for the man like R3HAB too...
