Even as his DJing colleagues change their styles and diversify into different brands of music, Ferry has largely stuck to his guns as a producer of subliminal trance and dance music. However, he never passes up a chance to showcase his stunning versatility on the turntables and his inimitable ability to sense what makes a particular track click. Besides producing his own music, Ferry has made a name for himself mixing a large number of albums and compilations, serving up piece after piece of musical heaven nearly every time. His resume includes several editions of Trance Nation, Universal Nation and his award-winning take on William Orbit's Barber's Adagio for Strings.
Ferry's pseudonyms include Moonman, Veracocha, Gouryella and System F, under which he released the legendary Out of the Blue. He co-founded Tsunami Records with Robert Smit, today one of the most influential labels in the industry.
And the point of this whole eulogy? Ferry Corsten is a genius. The world will probably never see his likes for a long time yet, and the whole universe of trance music will suffer when he finally hangs up his turntables and fades away into the night.
