With 17 years industry experience, innumerable remixes, several hit singles and eight albums under his belt, Dutch DJ/Producer Ferry Corsten knows how to knock up a tune. The bombastic title of his latest album, L.E.F. - Loud, Electronic, Ferocious – seems overtly aimed at quieting any doomsday critics that are still flouncing around prophesying the death of dance music. The contents certainly state a passionate case for the genre-s ongoing vitality and ability to reinvent itself, as Corsten lets loose a take-no-prisoners tirade of electro, trance, pop and techno. The visceral pulse of -Are You Ready- opens the onslaught, preparing the listener for retro anthems such as the record’s first single -Fire- (featuring Simon Le Bon), and -Into The Dark- (with Howard Jones), and a storming series of trademark trance cuts - -Beautiful-, -Posession- and a reworking of old favourite -Galaxia-.
