Ferry Corsten (Rotterdam, December 4, 1973) is a Dutch DJ, record producer and remixer. He is well known for producing many trance hits during the 1990s-2000s under his numerous aliases, including System F, Moonman, Pulp Victim and Gouryella. As a teenager, he listened to his father’s records and saved up money to buy his first synthesizer by washing cars and selling mixtapes to children in the neighbourhood. Soon after, he started performing with a friend. At the age of 17 (in 1991), he released his first record called ‘The Spirit of Adventure’ with his friend Robert Smit. Nowadays, Ferry is a big name in the music world, known for hits like ‘Fire’, ‘The Race’ and ‘Lemme Take You’. He has been consistently featured on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs chart, at no. 5 in 2004 and 2005, 6 in 2006 and 2008; and most recently at 53 in 2020.
