Also spending time on his own track productions, his aim and goal is to add fascinating elements to his composing style as well as working on his first artist album. As for the not-so-far future, Amr hopes to travel and experience the electronic music scene all over the world. He knows that this type of music is very artistic and there is a lot of effort going in to producing and mixing it, and at the same time it’s good for the soul.
