Ferry Corsten on the On Location Sessions presented by The DJ Sessions at ADE 10/21/22
About Ferry Corsten –
Hailing from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Ferry Corsten’s illustrious career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiraled into a full-blown profession, as he continues to push the boundaries of electronic music.
This is exemplified by Ferry Corsten’ recently released ambient album, ‘As Above So Below’ under his FERR By Ferry Corsten alias, a personal project which allowed him to further explore his love for orchestral music that evolved from his long-running Stillpoint playlist. Ferry’s love for cinematic sounds has long been present in his music, as the iconic Rotterdam native signed off on his 5th artist album as Ferry Corsten – Blueprint. In 2017 This interstellar storyline-driven epic is something unlike any Ferry Corsten record before and preceded the release of Ferry’s first soundtrack early last year, composing the score for David Gleeson’s late-2018 thriller ‘Don’t Go’.
2019 also saw Ferry continue with his UNITY project, a concept launched in 2018 that has seen Ferry collaborate with iconic trance acts throughout the year with the vision of uniting the Trance community for a bigger cause. Ferry has partnered with VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, an organization formed to reinstate music programs for children, which has helped 2,100 schools to date. These high-profile UNITY collaborations include works with Paul Oakenfold, Ilan Bluestone, Gabriel & Dresden, Sander van Doorn under his Purple Haze alias, and most recently with Ciaran McAuley on ‘Mo Chara’. 2019 also saw Ferry place in DJ Mag’s Top100DJs poll for the 8th consecutive year, rising 15 places to #59 and extending his position as the longest serving Dutch DJ in the poll; capping what was an impressive year.
Ferry has been consistently at the top of his game since his sophomoric album under the System F alias ‘Out of The Blue’ in 1999, with the title track charting in the UK Top 20 singles chart. He’s continued this success with numerous remix requests, including remixes for U2, Moby, Faithless, Duran Duran and Public Enemy. Ferry also partnered with Tiësto around this time for the now legendary Gouryella handle, a project Ferry relaunched in 2016 with the hugely popular ‘Anahera’ single, and later a Gouryella 2.0 Live show gracing the stages of EDC, Ultra, Tomorrowland and more.
Ferry himself graced the stage with standout shows at the likes of Parookaville, EDC Las Vegas and Tomorrowland last year. Ferry also debuted his System F live show in November 2018 at Dreamstate SoCal to mark 20 years of ‘Out of The Blue’ and has since taken it worldwide to the likes of Electronic Family and Transmission. Ferry also recently announced his WHAT THE F concept, unifying his System F, Gouryella and Ferry Corsten aliases for a series of intimate open-to-close exclusive sets, comprised of solely his own material, across the world in the coming months.
Ferry continues to break new ground in the trance world and beyond, demonstrated by his nomination for ‘Best Trance DJ’ at the 2018 DJ Awards and more recently winning the prestigious ‘Legacy Award’ at the 2019 edition of the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA’s) in Miami during Miami Music Week.
Alongside hit global exploits as a DJ, chart scaling achievements in the studio, Ferry continues to have a day-to-day involvement in his Flashover Recordings imprint, recently partnering with Armada Music for future releases. Launched back in 2005, Ferry’s label enables him to scour the world for fresh talent and release music by cutting-edge producers, giving them a voice on the world stage, alongside hosting his own label parties everywhere from Amsterdam Dance Event to Miami Music Week.
