Ferry Corsten

A pioneer and a dynamic force in the electronic dance music industry, Ferry Corsten never ceases to amaze, awe and even challenge his music contemporaries with the zest and talent he has in his productions and musical sets. He is widely recognized for opening the flood gates of Dutch producers and DJs to the international music scene.


2005

2005 Brings a new wave of challenges for Ferry Corsten. Aside from DJ-ing all over the world, he is currently working on his new album and party concept entitled L.E.F. (Loud, Electronic, and Ferocious) 

L.E.F. is Ferry Corsten’s newest event concept released this year where he will promote his new sound that he and other artists produce and play to clubs and events all over the world.

The concept L.E.F. began as it actually is a dutch word meaning “Guts” which is what many artists respect Ferry Corsten for as a producer and DJ.  He has always been known to push the boundaries of music and has had a great influence in molding the dance scene to what it is today through his numerous productions and hits such as “Galaxia”, “Out Of The Blue”, “Gouryella”, “Punk”, and “Rock Your Body, Rock”.

So prepare yourself to experience an evening of Ferry's unique sound and upcoming music that he is currently working on for his new album and guest artists that we believe help build the music scene to what it is today... Loud Electronic Ferocious!


FERRY CORSTEN THE DJ

DJ professionally for the last few years, Ferry Corsten has consistently remained one of the top 10 DJs in the last few years.
1999 was the first year he had entered the chards and is currently listed at number 5 on Uk's DJ magazine (2004) and number 8 on America's BPM magazine (2005).
Since then, he's consistently traveled Europe, America, and Asia every year averaging about 130 performances around the globe with concentrations on America, Europe, Middle East and Australia / Asia.


FERRY CORSTEN THE PRODUCER

Known for the countless aliases he has produced and remixed under since the release of his first record at the age of sixteen (16), Ferry Corsten has remained steadfast in pursuing his dream of spreading his unique sublime sound to music lovers worldwide. In his quest, he has gained not only respect in the music industry he has built around him but in similar musical genres as well.

Ferry had always been interested in music as a child. Tinkering with his father's record player at a young age, he saved up money to buy his first keyboard by washing cars, and selling mixed tapes to kids in his neighborhood. He then embarked on a live act performance with a friend and won his first award "De Grote Prijs van Nederland" Holland in 1989.  He eventually released a record with a couple of friends when he was just sixteen years old and has evolved into releasing self-made productions. To this date, Ferry produces and engineers all his musical productions and compilations.

After initially producing some underground club tracks Ferry became more interested in clubhouse and trance. In 1996 Ferry achieved his first chart position in the UK single chart at #46 with 'Don't Be Afraid' by Moonman, his first major and European breakthrough as a solo dance Artist, producer and composer.

Since Then, Ferry Corsten is the only electronic dance music artist to achieve the highest number of dance singles in the UK charts and currently has 10 gold singles in his studio.

FERRY CORSTEN THE ARTIST

Whilst producing under various aliases in the last few years, Ferry Corsten has decided in 2004 to concentrate solely on the name Ferry Corsten. Since, then, he has released his first artist album (2004) and has had 3 singles from the album that have had numerous success as chart singles in the UK. Such hit singles include Punk,It's time, and Rock Your Body Rock, which debuted on number 11 on the Uk Charts (February 2004).  Remixes of this single were made by Moby and Rennie Pilgrem.

During that year, he launched his artist album "Ferry Corsten: Right Of Way" at the Heineken Musical Hall (Netherlands, 2003) where 4,500 clubbers came to be with Ferry in a special 8 hour set, in The Netherlands is a testament to his goal in combining his artistic skills as a producer and a DJ on an international scale.
