Ferry Corsten is a Dutch DJ, producer and recorder who first started out in 1991 producing underground hardcore gabber tracks. He soon expanded into clubhouse and trance music. But don't put Ferry into the trance corner, because his sound encompasses several genres of electronic music. In 1999 Ferry Corsten was voted Best Producer of the Year at the Ericsson Muzik Award in London. In 2000, he was awarded Best Remix for Adagio for Strings (Ferry Corsten remix) at the Dancestar 2000 awards.
The project WIPPENBERG started in 1995 as a simple side-project, with its first release NEURODANCER on the German underground label Hyper Hype Records.

This year, his clean, uplifting sound has made him new friends in both the pure trance and house fanbases, no small part of which was down to another fan, one Ferry Corsten, picking up on a track he made under another of his alter egos, Alpha 9.

Being the official World’s Most Popular DJ is just one of his many achievements, but the driving force behind his success is an overriding passion for dance music.
