Since bursting onto Anjunabeats with his debut solo release back in 2012, London-based producer ilan Bluestone’s whirlwind journey through the international dance music scene has been nothing short of monumental. With a string of hit releases such as the Pete Tong-endorsed ‘Big Ben’, ‘Under My Skin’ and ‘Spheres’ under his belt, he now has an impressive array of live performances at venues as prestigious as London’s Brixton Academy and New York’s Madison Square Garden to underline his star status.
In the last 12 months, ilan has continued to dominate the Beatport Trance charts, with dancefloor anthem ‘43’ taking his tally of top spots to 9, and his ‘Snapdragon’ EP reaching #1 in the overall releases chart. ilan’s productions are a staple of Above & Beyond’s DJ sets and gains frequent support from other international DJ’s including Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, and Seven Lions.
Taking inspiration from his love of 80’s music, ilan’s recent masterpieces ‘Cloudchaser’ and ‘Bonsai’ - included on his Anjunabeats Worldwide 05 compilation – showcase his wide range of musical talent. His collaboration with the legendary BT on ‘All These Wounds’, and remixes for Michael Woods and The Presets cap off a hugely impressive discography.
At the core of ilan’s meteoric rise is his fanbase – a loyal and dedicated army of growing followers – who continue to flood to his shows to catch a glimpse of ilan’s explosive and uplifting sets – none more evident than at his recent EDC Las Vegas performance in a packed out Circuit Grounds stage.
Ilan’s heavy touring schedule has seen him give momentous performances at Madison Square Garden for ABGT100 and Australia's iconic festival, Stereosonic. He has also had a supporting slot on Cosmic Gate’s recent North America tour, to add to his impressive and expanding performance résumé. 2016 still has a lot more in store for one of the scene’s hottest talent.
Hailing from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Ferry Corsten’s lustrous career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiralled into a full-blown profession. Today, as it was in the beginning, Corsten’s skills lie in his ability to coax the maximum emotional impact from electronic dance music of all genres, not just trance, but also progressive-house and electro. He remains and has always been ahead-of-his time, making music that becomes a template for others to follow.
It was the album, Out Of The Blue, that started it all. As Corsten’s sophomoric artist album under the alias, System F, the eponymous single became a worldwide hit and charted in the UK’s Top 20 UK singles charts and Japan’s Top 10 singles charts for three consecutive years after its release. Corsten’s rapid success ignited a steady flow of releases including ‘Gouryella’ with Tiësto. It was during this time that Corsten’s remix of William Orbit’s ‘Barber’s Adagio For Strings’ became a clubland anthem. Though the instantly recognizable original appeared in the film, Platoon (directed by Oliver Stone), it was Corsten’s heady remix that took the original composition’s strongest elements and amplified them into a singular, explosive masterpiece.
Now the iconic Rotterdam native strides towards his 5th artist album – Blueprint. Out May 2017, this interstellar storyline-driven epic is something, unlike any Ferry Corsten record before it. A conceptual masterpiece the album sees Ferry taking his music into an entirely new world combining his love of storytelling, his passion for science fiction and his lifelong bond with music.
Striving always for excellence, this is an artist who is never satisfied with all that he’s accomplished, instead always pushing for the next exciting idea. For Ferry Corsten, the possibilities are boundless.
