The past 20 years have passed quickly and I look forward to the next 20 years. I hope you enjoy the app just as much as I did creating it
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
In honor of his 20th anniversary as a leading E.D.M. (electronic dance music) producer, Ferry Corsten is releasing a special mega mix exclusively as an iPhone/iPad app. This makes Corsten the first artist worldwide to present a new album in this way. The app also offers a complete discography and unique images from the past 20 years. The Ferry Corsten 20 Years app is available for $5.99 at the iTunes app store.
Ferry Corsten 20 Years App
The app includes an all-encompassing hour-plus mix with 34 of Ferry Corsten's best tracks from the past 20 years. It includes tracks not only under his own name, but also those from his System F and Gouryella aliases.
Besides the mega mix, the app contains a photographic morphing feature with images of Corsten over the years, images of his musical life, of dance festivals, his work in the studio and of his albums, all with corresponding tracklists. The app also links directly to iTunes, which makes it easy to purchase a specific album or song on the spot.
For His Fans
Ferry Corsten says about his app, "Time truly flies when you’re having fun! The past 20 years have passed quickly and I look forward to the next 20 years. I hope you enjoy the app just as much as I did creating it. I would like to thank everyone for their support. Without you I would not be where I am today.”
Ferry Corsten Through The Years
Hailing from The Netherlands, Ferry Corsten is one of the world’s biggest and most successful E.D.M. (electronic dance music) DJs/producers. He began his career in 1991 with the release of his first track, "Spirit of Adventure.” On the label Ministry of Sound among others, he released his Trance Nation series, one of the most popular E.D.M. compilations ever with nearly 1 million copies sold.
In 1995, Corsten won First-Prize in the ‘Grote Prijs van Nederland’ award scouting talent in The Netherlands. Voted Producer of the Year at the prestigious Ericsson Muzik Awards, Corsten received the Silver Harp prize. In 2007, Corsten launched the concept, “Full on Ferry.” These are themed nights during which Corsten treats audiences to a spectacular show and unique back-to-back sets with fellow world-famous artists. This was also the year that “Corsten's Countdown” was launched, a unique interactive dance radio show where listeners can vote for their favorite track weekly via Facebook. The radio show is broadcast in over 50 countries and is annually nominated amongst the best radio shows in the world. In 2011, he was nominated for the Golden Harp, one of the most important Dutch prizes awarded for artistic merit.
Ferry Corsten has remixed for U2, Faithless, Moby, The Killers, the Japanese superstar, Ayumi Hamasaki, William Orbit, Duran Duran, Public Enemy and Tiësto, among many others. He has several albums to his credit and is currently working on a new long-player with top artists that will be released early next year on his own imprint, Flashover Recordings.
Speak is a digital communications company based in Heerenveen, The Netherlands, with a strong focus on software development. In close consultation with Ferry Corsten and his management team, Speak was responsible for the full development of the app, from conceptualization to interaction, design and technology.
