By any measure, Ferry Corsten is an electronic dance music titan. Ever since his debut album Out of the Blue under his trance music alias System F in 1999 topped the UK singles charts, he has been defining and redefining electronic dance music around the world. To prove this, Ferry was recently knighted by the Dutch king for his contribution to the country’s music industry, an honour only two other Dutchman DJs have ever received. Over more than 20 years he has remixed everyone from U2 to Duran Duran to Justin Bieber, and has made widescreen and cinematic albums like 2017’s ‘Blueprint’, soundtracks to movie thrillers like ‘Don’t Go’ and has headed up his charity project UNITY while collaborating with fellow legends like Paul Oakenfold, BT, Ilan Bluestone and Sander van Doorn.
As the longest-serving Dutch DJ in the annual DJ Mag Top 100 poll over the last decade, he is no stranger to the world’s biggest stages from Tomorrowland to EDC Las Vegas and Creamfields. His ‘Resonation Radio’ show is also an influential outlet for new music and constant proof of Ferry’s dedication to pushing electronic music forward. Most recently, his piano house single ‘Timeout’ with Dustin Husain on Flashover Recordings/Armada has proved the latest in a long line of classic tunes from the great Dutchman.
His all-encompassing What the F live tour kicked off at London’s Ministry of Sound on May 6th and heads all over North and South America in June and August for phase one, with phase two to follow soon. It is a career-spanning spectacle that finds Ferry playing open to close, from the first to the last record under all his different acclaimed aliases. Every tune will be one of Ferry’s own, with numerous hits taken from his vast back catalogue of over 150 tracks. Some of this music will be remixed, rehashed and reinvented to make for an all-new and thrilling experience from this dance pioneer.
On top of all the exclusive collectibles are potential rewards from purchasing, collecting and completing sets of packs. Among them are guest list and/or backstage access to all What the F shows, free merchandise, and for NFT fans and music super fans alike, the Grand prize which is a one of a kind (mythical) NFT digital audio tape (DAT) of Ferry Corsten: Out of the Blue, the story behind his classic Out of the Blue, which was originally going to come under Ferry’s own name but instead established System F as one of dance music’s most iconic alias and topped global charts while becoming one of dance music’s biggest hits.
