We had one for Airwave, and also one for M.I.KE. How about another legend?

I don't know how many tracks he has but must be over 200, his alias' are also extensive like Laurent's, I can count about 25 in my music library. I was first introduced to him from a track under his Discodroid alias called Interspace back in 1997 as I was just getting into more melodic and synth heavy music however didn't know it was Ferry until later. Adiago for Strings remix was likely what put him on the map for me, and opened the flood gates to his remixes of Madagascar, Universal Nation, Orange theme, and so on. The discovery of Albion Air many years after release on Platipus was what really made me start buying a lot of his material.

Here are my top, would be great to know yours.

1. Ferry Corsten - Sublime
2. Ferry Corsten - Star Traveller
3. Albion - Air
4. Moonman - Galaxia
5. System F - Out of The Blue

1 (tie). Bypass - Cyberia (most underrated Ferry track imo, often attributed to Tiesto)
1 (tie) Albion - Air
2. Lovechild - Liberta (Moonman remix). So grandiose.
3. Moonman - Galaxia
4. System F - Cry (Ferry Corsten clubmix). This version of Cry is pretty gritty and badass. I prefer it over the original.

Yes I was hesitant to include those in my list but I had to acknowledge how prominent they were for me when I first go into this kind of music and all the times I spent dancing to it in the clubs. Good times.

I wanted to create this thread few months ago after the M.I.K.E thread but didn't have the time to think of all the tunes.

Ferry is my #2 favourite producer in terms of quantity + quality after M.I.K.E.

Top 5 is really hard to do but I'll try my best. I've tried not including the remixes of Ferry Corsten tracks, as that would make it much more longer to think xD

Of course I'll start with my honourable mentions. As usual, the more shivers I have from the track, the closer it is to the first place, and that's how I usually rate my trance.

Honourable mentions:

20. Ayumi Hamasaki - Kanariya (System F Mix)
19. Ferry Corsten - Shanti
18. Faithless feat. Boy George - Why Go (Ferry Corsten Remix)
17. System F - Ignition, Sequence, Start!
16. Ferry Corsten - Beautiful
15. Ayumi Hamasaki - Connected (Ferry Corsten Remix)
14. Gouryella - Ligaya (Original Instrumental Mix)
13. Desiderio - Starlight (Ferry Corsten Remix)
12. Corderoy - Sweetest Dreams (Ferry Corsten Remix)
11. Mash Up Matt - Liberation (Fly Like An Angel) (Ferry Corsten Remix)


And now the top 10 itself:

10. Vimana - Dreamtime
09. Albion - Air (Original Mix)
08. Lovechild - Liberta (Moonman Remix)
07. Anomaly - Calling Your Name (Ferry Corsten Remix)
06. Aven - All I Wanna Do (Ferry Corsten Remix)
05. Evoke - Arms Of Loren (Ferry Corsten Remix)
04. System F - Solstice (Original Extended)
03. Ferry Corsten vs. The Thrillseekers - Sublime
02. System F - Insolation (Ferry Corsten Flashover Remix)
01. Ferry Corsten - Gabriella's Sky


Hope you like my top 5 (20). There's honestly SO MANY tunes I could've put here as well.

For example, Late Summer Fields (Ferry Corsten Remix)... (I didn't include it as it's my ex-gf's fav trance track :LOL:)
Or Ferry's remixes of William Ørbit's "Barber's Adagio for Strings" + underrated "Ravel's Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte", which are amazing...
Or Synaesthesia (Ferry Corsten Remix) which I consider to be the best version of this track due to a very emotional start of the breakdown...
Or I'm In Love (Ferry Corsten & Robert Smit Remix)...
Or Midsummer Rain which was put as a free download years ago, a progressive gem....

But yes, I should stop now with his creations as there's just too many masterpieces.

Some of the tunes I really wanted to include but didn't do it, as they're remixes:
- Sweet Sorrow (Thrillseekers Remix);
- Soul On Soul (Barthezz Heavenly Remix);
- Interspace (C.M Club Remix);
- Galaxia (Aly & Fila Remix);
- Star Traveller (Hydroid vs. Zehavi & Rand Remix);
- Made Of Love (Science Deal For Angelica Instrumental Mix)

Saturday morning spent well.

A rare and decent FC remix was High by lighthouse family too. Heard that first by ferry himself at code in Birmingham, many moons ago.

I do the exact same expression when Needlejuice comes on. Haha
The Jan Driver remix of that is a class act. Completely forgot about it, and hadn't heard it in years, but it's so good.
