Ferry Corsten released details of his latest mix CD Creamfields-Ferry Corsten this week and revealed that hes started calling his unique electro influenced take on trance Loud Electronic Ferocious (or LEF for short).
Ferrys 2003 track Punk really highlighted his new sound, the CD accompanying press release explains, Its sound stood out from the same identikit trance that has been giving the sound a bad name.
Despite the Dutch cheesemeisters shameless purloining of the term, Corsten cheerfully owned up to having no punk rock credentials whatsoever last year, admitting punk was well before my time.
I thought the name suggests a raw and dirty image, the look of an in-your-face guy with lots of tattoos, a spiky mohawk and so on, when I think of punk, thats the image that comes to my mind, not necessarily the music, Corsten told Skrufff.
I always used to see these guys running around
In the same interview, he was marginally more punk rock when asked how he felt about critics calling him cheesy, growling firstly we have to establish what cheesy is? Define it!
I just make music for myself first and if it reaches other people, thats great, he continued. I really couldnt care less about sneering comments like that. To me, the results speak for themselves.
Creamfields- Ferry Corsten is out on New State Recordings shortly.
