Corsten’s Countdown 235: Yearmix 2011

December 29, 2011

I used to be a huge Ferry Corsten (aka System F back in the day) fanatic in my old trance crazed days when I always purchased import Ministry of Sound: Trance Nation albums from Europe, which had a number of editions that were mixed by the world renowned producer. I still have a lotta love and respect for the veteran, who’s stayed strong throughout the years with his talent and ability to create and remix electronic music superbly. Here’s Corsten’s end of year mix for 2011, and it’s an hour long extravaganza worthy of a proper new year’s celebration, complete with some of the top artists that I used to listen to a ton. Still love the epic anthem Out of the Blue which brings back endless memories, which is now remixed into the Blue Theme. Good stuff.

System F

Tell me this doesn’t bring back memories, lots and lots of memories! Ferry Corsten is releasing this NEW mix of the oldies Out of the Blue (when he went by System F) and Cosmic Gate’s The Blue Theme. Out of the Blue has got to be the biggest epic trance anthems ever from back in the day. Cosmic Gate… well… nuff said. Wow. Memories. Ferry Corsten is still THE man. At least when it comes to trance. 😉 Miss the old epic trance stuff sometimes… EPIC. You want a definition of EPIC? You play this mashup. Some of you younger people who missed the golden age of trance probably don’t understand… Those that were there for it, you know what I’m talking about.

London’s Ministry of Sound may shut down…

That is not good news. Ministry of Sound has played such a pivotal role in the electronica scene. How many folks have albums/compilations from the Ministry of Sound? *raises hand* How many folks spent years loving the compilations by Ministry of Sound, getting each and every one of the Trance Nation albums as they came out, despite the price of the imports? *raises hand* How many people regarded the electronica coming from the UK as so much more innovative and better than the “house” music compilations that were put out at the time (by Ministry of Sound)? *raises hand* How many people wish they could’ve set foot in the Ministry of Sound during those pivotal trance/techno years? *raises hand* How many people were first introduced to Ferry Corsten (aka System F at the time) thanks to Ministry of Sound’s compilations? *raises hand* I can go on for awhile… but I hope they don’t shut down Ministry of Sound though not as relevant in today’s scene anymore.. but I do believe there is a lot that can still be achieved and it’s just too much of a legend to say goodbye to, just yet. Ministry of Sound was far more than just a nightclub. I never ventured anywhere near it, but it had such an impact on what I listened to and helped shape who I was for years.

Umm. I wouldn’t miss this if I were in New York. But I’m not. O_O
