Ferry Corsten has been in fine form in 2019 on the release front, and that hot streak continues with his latest outing, ‘Hear It Now’, alongside fresh talent Johnny B.
Never afraid to put his faith in the newer generation of artists’, Ferry follows up recent collaboration with Kristian Nairn, best known for his role as Hodor in Game of Thrones, and trance legend BT, with his latest team-up, drafting in burgeoning artist Johnny B for a summer anthem that brings out Ferry’s mellower side, displaying his ability to switch it up and evoke different emotions through music, resulting in a warm, progressive sound which will have fans reminiscing about Ibizan sunset and sizzling beaches.
The beat is set against warm piano chords that lay the foundation for the beat to thrive, as tribal, percussive elements and toms are interspersed along with the groove of the drums. Waves wash over the beat in the main breakdown, a clever use of sampling which further adds to the atmosphere of the record, as glistening melodies provided by the keys enhance the luscious melodic content that floats over the track. A subtle arpeggio sits back in the mix, ensuring the track maintains its drive, while the chords open up from the main breakdown, signifying a euphoric crescendo and cementing its place as a festival anthem.
Ferry maintains his desire to push the boundaries in the world of trance and beyond, breaking new talent and conceiving contemporary ideas to keep his music fresh, while always willing to draw on inspiration from the past and a career that has spanned over 20 years and seen him play at the biggest festivals and shows consistently across the globe during that time. While his UNITY project keeps on flourishing, working towards a goal of uniting the trance community for a greater cause, Ferry continues to explore different avenues and means to channel his innate creativity, a trait which has seen him remain at the forefront of dance music for so long.
