During his 20 year career Dutch dj and producer Ferry Corsten has consistently been ranked as one of the Top 100 DJs in the world as well as winning numerous awards including Best Producer and Best Trance DJ.
He has released nearly a dozen gold singles as well as 3 studio albums and remixed artists including U2, Faithless, The Killers and Nelly Furtado.
Early 2012 sees the release of his 4th studio album called WKND. It is an album which proves, once again, why he is one of the best in the world.
WKND opens with the lush emotive A Day Without Rain featuring Ellie Lawson. The second track is the hugely successful single Can You Feel It, which features a sample used in the house anthem by Philippe B vs Todd Terry. In Corsten’s hands, Can You Feel It is pure dance floor dynamite.
The rest of the album delivers radio-ready gems such as Ain’t No Stoppin, Let You Go and the excellent Live Forever, as well as a great pop ballad called Not Coming Down – featuring the vocals of Betsie Larkin – which I feel sure will enthral crowds at the 2012 summer festivals. And there is a wonderful instrumental track called Take Me.
WKND reveals once again the range and diversity of Corsten’s production talent. Not only can he deliver tracks born for the dance floor, but he can create pop hits for worldwide radio, as well as euphoric uplifting trancers.
On the evidence of this album alone, it is no understatement to claim Corsten as a true EDM pioneer.
Ferry Corsten – WKND is released on New State Music on 27 February 2012 and is available to pre-order now.
