2005

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”.

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.
