Nearly 20 years of music making experience make up for a promising new production by Egyptian producer Phillipe El Sisi. As if the instrumental wasn’t powerful enough already, it’s also empowered by the voice of British singer and songwriter Sue McLaren, known for her collab with Aly & Fila on ‘I Can Hear You’. After ‘You Never Know’ and ‘Story Of My Life’, Phillipe presents his third release on the Future Sound of Egypt label, ‘The Last Hope’.

The Last Hope (Original Mix)
This track is a perfect balancing act between floor filling synth-sounds and soothing vocal-lines. Twisting effects backed up with pumping beats come and go in a continuous stream with sound-scapes that don’t need anything else but the voice of Sue McLaren.

The Last Hope (Mohamed Ragab Remix)
On the remix, we discover another Egyptian talent. It’s DJ and producer Mohamed Ragab who translated a thumping FSOE piece into a highly danceable trancer. His rework of ‘The Last Hope’ comes along with tight bass and moving synth-sounds, ready to conquer every heart of the trance-seeking soul.

Sue McLaren’s strikingly beautiful vocals embrace the story well, as they begin to draw you closer you will feel every soft word spoken, inevitably you will understand and reflect. The ‘Last Hope’ composes a great deal of serene emotion, which is beautifully crafted inside a heavenly melody – Take a listen and see what you feel.
