Interview with Ferry Corsten at Amsterdam Dance Event Print E-mail

Interview with Ferry Corsten at Amsterdam Dance Event for 1Mix Radio..We Were There - for first time at Amsterdam Dance Event [ADE]. For 5 days from 17th until 21st of October, the vibrant multicultural city of Amsterdam became the focal point for the Electronic Dance Music Industry. Now in its 17th year, ADE is the most important platform about and around the EDM scene. It combines some very informative conferences, plenty of opportunities for networking, and during the night, a wide variety of events spread across the city of Amsterdam which represents the various styles and sub styles of EDM at the moment. There were appearances from some of the most famous DJ’s and producers worldwide, including Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten and many more.
  For very first time at ADE, the superstar DJ and pioneer EDM producer Ferry Corsten, presented his ‘Full on Ferry’ show at the brand new event location ‘Undercurrent’, in co-operation with the very successful event organisation company UDC. The show included a mouth-watering solo performance by Ferry Corsten, who played all his biggest hits and many of the forthcoming tracks, including his collaboration with Markus Schulz. There were great guest performances from the Dutch dynamite Sied van Riel, who blew everyone’s minds, the legend producer Nick Bracegirdle, with his influential project; Chicane Live. Chicane’s performance was hair-raising with classics such as Saltwater. Showtek unleashed their manic harder side of house, Bassjackers with his punchy dirty Dutch/epic house sound, and Aly and Fila as the final set for an unforgettable uplifting full-on climax.

  The incredible event which was well conceived and organised in every small detail, included a second room hosted by Solarstone with his ‘Pure Trance’ concept. This included performances by Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani Live, Orkidea, Daniel Kandi & John OO Fleming. The music policy was Pure Uplifting trance all the way. We loved, and we continue to love this genre.

  The following day Ferry Corsten took part in the discussion panel "Every beat counts - How To Invest In Yourself”, organised by SENA in the Felix Meritis. They are responsible for protecting the performing rights of EDM artists. The panel also included the Dutch female DJ Marcella, Steve Rodway of the Motiv8 project, and the real legend of soulful house, the admirable singer Ce Ce Rogers. Ferry talked about and shared his experience as an artist and successful label owner. He was a really confident speaker explaining the steps he took to establish himself and his company Flashover Recordings. He urged young artists to become more active in their self-promotion, as the world wide web offers countless opportunities to promote themselves as DJ’s, artists and label owners.

  At the end of this very informative panel, I asked Ferry if he would mind doing an interview, and as always, Ferry very politely accepted, despite the fact that he had to finish his ‘Once Upon A Night Vol.3’ compilation, which will be out at the end of November. Within this superb interview, Ferry talks about the importance of ADE within the music industry, and his take on what is really happening out there. He gave us his opinion about the explosion of the Electronic Dutch Music Industry, and the dominance of Dutch EDM artists on a global scale. He also made his positive appraisal of the Full on Ferry event. He makes comments about his guest artists, the Undercurrent venue, and the event company UDC, which he works with on various projects, including ‘Full on Ferry’ in Holland. He makes a quick round up of past events and he reveals some plans for future ‘Full on Ferry’ events all over the globe. He also explains what exactly is included  in a ‘Full on Ferry’ event (line up DJ's/decoration) which any promoter can book for his territory. On the production front, he tell us about his second collaboration with Markus Schulz for the remake of the classic Jam & Spoon anthem ‘Stella’, and we finish off with his forthcoming compilation ‘Once Upon a Night Vol3’’ This will be out soon on his joint venture ‘Premier Recordings’, along with Black Hole recordings. Ferry at its best and most creative period. You will Love Him!

Interview was conducted, filmed and is edited by Dimitris Kechagias, Radio/DJ/Music Journalist.
