Saied (a.k.a DJ Black) & Khalid (a.k.a DJ White) are without a doubt two of the most prolific and creative prospects on the trance & progressive scene in the Middle East region.
Both Khalid and Saied reside in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. At the beginning of his music career and at the tender age of 13, Khalid was trained as a classical guitarist. During the same period and at a similar age, Saied started playing the keyboard and later moved on to classical guitar. Both Saied and Khalid met by coincidence during high-school and with a bunch of other friends decided to form a band which was later known as "Los Andlos". The band played a variety of music styles, primarily focusing on Rhumba Flamenco.
Although trained for a completely different genre, both Khalid's and Saied's love for EDM music began almost in parallel to their passion for Rhumba where they began to listen to and collect progressive and trance records at an early age of 13 when people around knew very little about this style/ genre of music.
Fast forward a few years, Saied's and Khalid's passion for electronic music flourished even further and they started DJing under the "Black n White" moniker. However, they always had their eyes firmly set on production, fiddling with different DAWs and synthesizers on their corporate laptops during office breaks. The tunes of Black n White evolved and became more complex with time securing them numerous global releases through several international record labels.
In addition to music production, Black n White etablished and hosted the first ever weekly trance show in town on 95.9 HiFM (http://hifmradio.com), Above 7th Cloud [A7C] from Feb 2012 till early 2013
