Born 4 December 1973, Rotterdam City, The Netherlands.
The Dutch harbor city Rotterdam was Ferry Corsten’s (28) playground when growing up and the city still is his current base of operations. Being a full-time producer since 1991 Ferry has developed into a true prodigy of the international dance scene.
After initially producing some hardcore gabba tracks Ferry became more interested in clubhouse and trance. In 1996 Ferry achieved a position in the U.K. single chart at #46 with ‘Don’t be Afraid’ by Moonman, his first major and European breakthrough as a solo dance Artist, producer & composer.
In 1997 Ferry and his partner Robert Smit established the Tsunami dance label together with the Dutch based dance company Purple Eye Entertainment b.v.
This collaboration would prove to be an almost instant success and eventually resulted in the creation of one of the most influential dance labels around today. These three parties have set up in the meantime a new label called Polar State.
In February 1999 Ferry’s second solo project, system F, was released on the Tsunami imprint. The title ‘Out Of The Blue’ is a melodic and powerful twister and turned out to be one of the biggest trance track of 1999, achieved a top twenty position in the U.K. single chart and put Ferry on the world-wide dance map permanently.
Other projects of Ferry Corsten are: “Carte Blanche” by Veracocha (produced together with Vincent de Moor) and in May 1999 the title “Gouryella” by the act Gouryella was released, an Artist-project Ferry produces together with the famous Dutch DJ Tiësto. The first single “Gouryella” entered the U.K. Singles Top 75 at #15 and achieved various hit positions throughout the world. The follow-up of Gouryella, entitled “Walhalla” has been released worldwide. Furthermore Ferry remixed William Orbit’s ” Adagio for Strings” as well as “New Yearsday” for the famous band U2.
In October of 1999 Ferry Corsten has been elected as ‘Producer of the Year’ during the recent Ericsson Muzik Awards in London, leaving fellow-nominees like Puff Daddy and Rodney Jerkins behind.
Next to his producing activities Ferry is a renowned DJ in the U.K. and recently debuted at Inner City in Amsterdam, spinning in front of a record crowd. The U.K. dance compilation Trance Nation mixed by Ferry was recently awarded
the platinum status.
The follow-up single of system F, entitled ‘Cry’ took trance to a different level combining soulful vocals by Saskia Lie Atjam with his typical trance sound which characterize his productions and made him so famous. ‘Cry’ is produced by Ferry Corsten and Robert Smit and additional remixes are provided by Rank 1, Oliver Lieb and Ferry Corsten himself.
Ferry’s debut album entitled ‘Out Of The Blue’ by system F is completed and has been released in Holland on the 26th of March ,with further singles to be announced throughout this year. To kick things off the “Soul on Soul” track with Marc Almond will be the (3rd) international single and it is slated for release in the various territories in the next months.
The fourth single is “Dance Vallley theme 2001”, this single was especially produced for the Dance Valley festival. This festival is the biggest outdoor dance festival in the world, with over 80.000 visitors.
