Ferry Corsten has always been a master of staying ahead of the trends in trance and helping steer its evolution, and this year he revived his classic Gouryella alias as a way of evoking the emotional heart of trance. It’s set to take even more of the spotlight in 2016.
Gouryella was a project that originally saw Corsten collaborating with Tiësto in the late ‘90s for the self-titled classic Gouryella that cracked the Top 20 in the UK. Corsten took the project solo in the 2000s, and he’s spoken on how time has yet to diminish the popularity of the sound.
“I’ve always loved the musical qualities that make up the Gouryella sound, and in the time when so much trance is swaying too far to EDM, I want to bring big melodies back to a scene I’ve spent my entire career championing,” Corsten said today.
“Gouryella will allow me the opportunity to exercise not only my desire to bring back a sentiment to the scene that I think is lacking in some parts, but equally deliver a new live concept that will represent both the music and visuals, as well as enable me to detail further the mysterious naming which has always made up Gouryella and the titles of the singles.”
