About Ferry Corsten
The EDM music scene prides itself on driven, industrious artists and in the early stages of the musical genre Ferry Corsten carved a place among the burgeoning scene, to become one of its innovative greats destined to metamorph into a legend that would inspire other artists to push the limits and create the scene and subgenres EDM fans know and love today! At the outset of his career, Ferry Corsten at the age of sixteen, would begin to create basement mixtapes and the first trappings of his style with nothing in mind more than to make fun music to dance and listen to. It wasn't until the age of seventeen that Corsten began to take his hobby professionally and looked to become a legend in the blooming community of EDM. It sounds like a picturesque coming of age story for Corsten, having saved up enough money from washing cars to buy his first keyboard, Corsten set out creating "gabber" tracks and selling mixtapes to the neighborhood in order to get his name out there. Soon after Corsten was looking into live performances and Djing nightclubs in the early nineties rave club scene. As most artists do, Corsten evolved his style and sound from the underground scene to a more commercially accessible and larger audience when he began to transition into club-house and trance music. Still in his teenage years Corsten was becoming the epitome of the EDM's DIY spirit; with a couple of mixtapes and an album just at the cusp of sixteen and seventeen years old, Corsten was becoming a name to know in the growing scene of Rotterdam's rave culture. One of the first shows that he performed live at with a friend earned him the prestigious award "De Grote Prijs van Nederland" in 1995. Still in his teens, Corsten would partner with his friend Robert Smit to create their own dance record label: Tsunami with Purple Eye Entertainment, which allowed Corsten to create an in house label Polar State. Not only was all of this career building on Corsten's plate but he also began technical school to become an electrical engineer! If the award, record label management, and school wasn't enough for the multi-monikered producer, Corsten would soon drop the mother of all debuts with his sophomoric album "Out of the Blue."
Corsten's rise to fame can be seen and traced to his sophomoric album "Out of the Blue." The release of this album along with the self titled single thrusted Corsten into the mainstream EDM consciousness as well as the worlds mind when being introduced to EDM and the rave dance craze of the nineties. The self titled single "Out of the Blue" would reach top twenty positions on the United Kingdom single charts and the follow up single "Cry" would inevitably join it's companion on the same list. The dance conscious mind was focused on Corsten and with his meteoric rise so too came the collaborations with other early legends. Collaborations with Tiesto, Vincent de Moor, and Robert Smit would create the legendary club track "Gouryella" by his new moniker Gouryella, shooting Corsten into the singles charts as well as clubs around the globe and with the follow up single "Walhalla" Corsten would be awarded "Producer of the Year" at the Ericsson Muzik Awards in London. Collaborating with these artists spurred Corsten further into the spotlight where remixes of William Orbit's "Adagio for Strings" and U2's "New Year's Day" would amass an even greater fan base and even more notoriety as an innovator of EDM.
Ferry Corsten's career as well as name has had many incarnations as well as hits throughout the decades and growth of the EDM scene. Singles such as: "Gouryella," "Walhalla," and "Adagio for Strings" have cemented Corsten's name in the EDM pantheon of superstars! His constant reinvention of EDM has given us blistering collaborations with U2 with his single "New Year's Day," and "Exhale" with Armin Van Buuren. To attempt to list all of Corsten's hits would be an overwrought and foolhardy task since doing so would have to span three decades of music and the birth of EDM music!
Ferry Corsten's first single to reach chart position was "Don't Be Afraid" which he produced under the name Moonman.
Corsten's second solo project "Out of the Blue" was produced under his name System F.
Corsten was awarded the Silver Harp for his contributions to Dutch Dance music in 2000 the same year that his remix of "Adagio for Strings" won the Dancestar 2000 Award in the UK and was awarded Platinum status.
Corsten's remix of "Connected," a track he collaborated with Japanese superstar Ayumi Hamasaki, sold four million copies in Germany making "Connected" one of his most successful singles.
Ferry Corsten also host an online radio show called "Corsten's Countdown" which counts down the top EDM tracks of the year.
