Ferry Corsten is one of the established titans of the esteemed Dutch electronic dance music scene. So the return of his and Tiesto’s fabled Gouryella act will certainly have many trance fans delighted with anticipation. Brought to life through debut live shows, it’s certainly an event we’ve already got marked in our 2016 calender’s.
Founded in 1999 by Ferry Corsten and Tiesto, Gouryella took trance to the world masses, with charting’s in numerous nations and remixes by fellow Dutchman Armin Van Buuren. With “Gouryella”, “Walhalla”, “Tenshi” and “Ligaya” within Gouryella’s portfolio, it’s safe to assume these live shows will be rich with nostalgia.
After a 13 year hiatus from the project Ferry is breathing life once more into the musical force that so many fans had longed for. Emerging from the studio in May 2015, Ferry gave the world premiere of a new Gouryella. Titled “Anahera”, which means ‘Angel’ in Maori, the new uplifting trance score with its immense soulful feel received its first spin on Ferry’s global spanning radio show ‘Corsten’s Countdown’.
Released in June earlier this year, and finding support from every major trance DJ in the scene, the single climbed to the #1 spot on the Beatport Trance Chart, where it held position for over 2 weeks, alongside securing the #10 spot on Beatport’s main chart – demonstrating once more that trance musics reemergence is not for the short term.
“Throughout my career, wherever I’ve played in the world, one question that continues to crop up from the fans is when I am going to bring Gouryella back. I’ve always been incredibly touched by the love and appetite they’ve shown this side of my musical career. For the last 4 maybe 5 years I’ve been thinking about bringing Gouryella back but just haven’t been able to find the right production when I was in the studio, that was until ‘Anahera’, after the feedback from the fans on this latest Gouryella track. I know it was time!”
