Ferry Corsten is one of the most widely respected DJs in the world of dance and trance music. Born in Rotterdam, Ferry has been producing full-time since 1991 but only really burst on the scene in 1999 with Out of the Blue, one of the most beautiful songs ever to grace the UK Top 20 Singles chart. To date this remains probably his greatest solo work, and I recommend everyone who hasnt heard it yet to download it immediately.
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.
