One of Holland’s finest imports will be headed thisÂ way. After aÂ 2 year absence in our clubbing scene due to his past festival appearances, world’s #7 DJ, Ferry Corsten makes his way back to Zouk on 23 April in conjunction with his Once Upon A Night tour.Â
At the end of March, Dutch DJ, producer and label owner Ferry Corsten released his latest mix compilation entitled Once Upon A Night. This brand new double mix album contains a fusion of trance and house in the most eclectic way. It features 25 unreleased tracks that have been exclusively produced for this compilation. The compilation includes tracks from highly acclaimed producers in the likes of BT, Tritonal, Breakfast, RafaÃ«l Frost and Bart Claessen amongst others. Available as a double CD, you can get it via all digital download portals, and there will be some exclusive Once Upon A Night vinyl samplers as well!
If that isn’t enough reason to come out and party with the Dutchman, Zouk KL will be the first clubbing destination in this tour that will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of System F. If you’re unfamiliar with the history of System F, here’s a little 101:
In February 1999, Ferry’s second solo project, System F, was released on the Tsunami imprint along with the album Out of the Blue. It included the eponymous single that went on to become an epic hit on international dancefloors, achieving a top 20 position in the United Kingdom single chart. The follow up single was ‘Cry’, produced together with Robert Smit which reached the UK Top 20. Ferry made his debut on DJ Mag’s Top 100 Poll in the same year at the #77 position.Â
Ferry’sÂ growing popularity led to the collaboration with many famous trance producers like TiÃ«sto (Gouryella, Vimana), Vincent de Moor (Veracocha), and Robert Smit (Starparty). It’s safe to say that System F was responsible in shaping the melodic and euphoric trance sounds in the late 90s. The track ‘Out of the Blue’ has since been re-released in February with 12 different remixes including contributions from TiÃ«sto, Laidback Luke, Showtek, RafaÃ«l Frost, Giuseppe Ottaviani and many more.
Since the debut of System F, Ferry has made it to DJ Mag‘s Top 100 poll every year since 1999 and his position in the yearly poll just keeps getting better and better. He has also successfully released three artist albums: Right of Way, LEF and Twice In A Blue Moon, as wellÂ as scores of mix compilations. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch Ferry Corsten in Kuala Lumpur, especially when you know he’ll be rocking out those amazing new tunes from Once Upon A Night.
