The young Ferry Corsten started making gabber music back in 1991. Slowly he grew out of the style with his sound morphing into a blend of house and trance music.
The breakthough came under the alias System F and the pioneering melodic anthem Out of the Blue. The track was a global success and Ferry Corsten started hanging out with the elite of trance artists including DJ Tiesto, Robert Smit and Vincent de Moor.
The next milestone in Ferry Corsten's career came with the worldwide release of the Trance Nation trance series compilations in collaboration with the Ministry of Sound.
His international fame encouraged him to found and manage Flashover Recordings, a platform for Ferry Corsten to experiment with his own music as well as helping young talent.
In 2006 Ferry Corsten was voted the 6th best DJ worldwide.
