Ferry Corsten is giving away “Silfra” — a track inspired by his trip to Iceland — for free. He explains, “I got really inspired after visiting this amazing and peaceful place and that is also how I came up with ‘Silfra’s’ title for this track.” As with most trance songs, you can feel the emotions that went into it. The snare drums and tinkling melody are just as Corsten describes the vacation destination, peaceful. If ”Silfra” is an embodiment of the Icelandic spirit then sign me up because I want to feel like this all the time.
The last month of the calendar usually means a sea of retrospectives and compilation albums and Ferry Corsten‘s release of his latest Once Upon A Night compilation fits just this mold. Out yesterday on Premier Recordings, Ferry hand picks an assortment of his favorite tracks from the last year, ranging from trance to progressive house to electro. For your convenience, we’ve linked some of our favorites below and added in a promotional guest mix Ferry recently mixed for Marcus Schulz‘s Global DJ Broadcast to give you more of a feel for the pace at which Ferry bangs out these tracks.
