Hailing from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Ferry Corsten’s lustrous career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiralled into a full-blown profession. Today, as it was in the beginning, Corsten’s skills lie in his ability to coax the maximum emotional impact from electronic dance music of all genres, not just trance, but also progressive-house and electro. From the outset, Corsten has been a prolific music-maker. So much so that in the early years he felt the need to release music under different aliases. Those pseudonyms included System F, Moonman and perhaps his most notable one Gouryella (with Tie?sto). Alongside hit global exploits as a DJ, chart scaling achievements in the studio, Ferry continues to have a day-to-day involvement in his Flashover Recordings imprint. Launched back in 2005 the label enables him to scour the world for fresh talent and release music by cutting-edge producers, giving them a voice on the world stage, alongside hosting his own label parties everywhere from Amsterdam Dance Event to Miami Music Week. He remains and has always been ahead-of-his time, making music that becomes a template for others to follow. Striving always for excellence, Ferry is an artist who is never satisfied with all that he’s accomplished, instead always pushing for the next exciting idea. We are incredibly excited and privileged to have the legend himself perform for us at the Late Show at this year’s SING JAZZ Festival.
