2013 is already proving to be a great year for Trance and we are seeing many artists who have been in the game for many years see quite a recent resurgence thus far. Some artists are changing up their styles a bit while others are forming new projects to keep their new material ever fresh. Ferry Corsten is a man that has done both. Always being an artist known never being a prisoner to one particular style, he is once again pushing boundaries with some of his newest productions as well as new his project with Markus Schulz, New World Punx.
Previous openers Niko Zografos and John Beaver couldn’t have been more amazing at filling Ruby Skye’s dancefloor to the gills as Ferry wasted no time getting the crowd going right from the get go. With tracks like “Black Light,” and his collab with Bassjackers titled “Collision,” things were well underway with a newfound energy Ferry has been utilizing in his sets as of late. The intensity was there from the very start to probably half hour into his set when Ferry dropped “Kudawudashuda” to give everyone a small breather before taking us back on the ride with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike’s remix of “Rock Your Body Rock”.
Towards the later half and the end, Ferry kept the crowd in full, which is never an easy task on a Thursday night even for the most seasoned and popular of artists. Finally dropping the much anticipated New World Punx single “Romper,” everyone lept to their feet for what would be the final stretch. After Ferry’s encore, he couldn’t have been nicer to stay and sign autographs for as many fans as he could, being one of the larger Trance artists we’ve had through in quite awhile, it wasn’t a show to be taken lightly. With so much going on already this year and being a constantly evolving artist, we can only cross our finger for the next time we see Ferry Corsten in the Bay and the enough people demand it, we will get to see his other half: New World Punx.
