Ahmed Romel is out to make history as the first Jordanian to play at the Electric Daisy Carnival, commonly known as EDC, the largest electronic dance music festival in North America.
With the festival set to take place in Las Vegas in October this year, Ahmed sees this as an opportunity to solidify his space in the music industry and showcase Jordanian talent on the world stage.
“I am very excited to be part of the lineup. As a Jordanian artist, I feel honored to be among those leading the charge in front of trance music enthusiasts from countries all around the world who will come to celebrate 25 years under the electric sky,” Ahmed said in an interview.
Born and raised in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Ahmed has been inspired by a melting pot of culture from his home.
From a young age, he could be heard humming tunes and listening to everything in his grasp; and from his youth onward, Ahmed has been fascinated with music, not just as an avid listener, but as an analyst, reconstructing tracks and always thinking of how to modify and create music.
“I’ve always longed to find my ideal genre of music, something intricate and focused in on melody and rhythm, without vocals, emotionally driven. This thing always inspired me to push harder,” Ahmed explains.
Ahmed soon found his love in trance and deep house music. Trance zeroes in on building a melody, whereas house focuses on the beat.
Ahmed performs worldwide, including Tomorrowland, Luminosity Beach Festival, FSOE 400, 450 & 600 and many more , with his sold-out debut artist album RÜYA, released in August 2019 that involved an global album tour
With many releases hitting the Beatport top 100 trance charts, he began to rip into the trance scene properly, releasing music on world-class record labels like Armada Music, FSOE Recordings and blackhole recordings.
The self-taught, self-made act caught mega traction when his personally beloved production “Victory” was debuted on Armin van buuren’s A State of Trance radio in 2013.
