Ferry Corsten’s “Hello World Part 2” Had Landed

Ferry Corsten’s has enjoyed a lustrous career spanning over two decades and still the Dutchman still has the spark and edge to produce enchanting material than manages to coax the maximal emotional impact from the electronic genres. His latest EP “Hello World Part 2” takes a direction towards his trance routes, a direction which many of his seven albums have included over the years.1. The EP’s first track, “Reborn”, captures the timeless, emotionally-heightening style we have come to know, love and expect from Corsten over the years. With inspirational riffs and FX, the surging melody bellows an ominous and optimistic atmosphere, with a kick-drum driving the track to bittersweet ending.2. The second track takes a more relaxed, spiritual angle. With a soft, slower beats and more patient, simple melodic build-up, the layered chords create an empowered atmosphere, taking us down a nostalgic path to the past where nearly all material would have an emotional impact on the listener that would soothe their worries yet increase their heartbeat.3. Opting for a deeper sounds, reminiscent of Ten Walls “Walking with Elephants” in terms of pace and atmosphere created, Corsten’s tuned, overlaid chords intertwined with soft, gentle vocal riffs yet again pull on our heart strings, taking us on a progressive journey towards a more peaceful, settled minset.

4. “Angel Dust” takes on a grittier fusion of layers and sounds, with a more grinding melody and synths pushing energy towards it’s deep ‘bassy’ samples. With a sophisticated structuring and prominent chordal keyboard the song fits nicely into the overall EP’s theme and audience.

5. Corsten’s collaboration with Haris almost combines aspects from the EP’s other tracks, with deep FX, a surging kick-bass and soothing melody, Haris’ vocals creating an enigmatic atmosphere than reaches clarity only at the end. A more instrumental, softer trance song, “Back to Paradise” reflects Coresten’s diverse production skills and knowledge to deliver a prime-time mood-setter.

6. Finally, rounding off the EP is “Hyper Love” featuring the capturing vocals of Nat Dunn. Fusing both trance and progressive house elements, the tracks fluctuates between simple and sophisticated layering. With a driving clap-drum, slow piano chords and gradual crescendos, the track wraps up the EP perfectly, with a cumulative mood and complete atmosphere.

The Flashover Records founder’s demand is as strong as ever, with a career including remixes of Justin Bieber, U2, Moby, The Killers, Duran Duran, Public Enemy and Nelly Furtado. “Hello World Part 2” continues his dominant production performance, adding to a career catalogue that stands up there with some of the best of his generation. And with ‘Corsten’s Countdown’ as strong as ever, broadcasting in over 40 countries via 210 radio stations worldwide, and his tour schedule (included bel0w) in high demand, the Corsten looks set to be around for years to come.
