Ferry Corsten returns under his Gouryella alias with ‘Surga’, which displays a clear nod to the old-school whilst staying firmly rooted in the present. Underpinned by modern production techniques the track delivers on the uplifting, anthemic atmosphere that is associated with the Gouryella alias.
‘Surga’ displays all the hallmarks of a Gouryella record, with a shimmering arpeggio that leads the track from the start, floating throughout and coming to the fore in places. Heavily-reverbed guitar slides wash over the track and add to the ethereal nature in the early stages, building to nothingness, as the track utilises silence to make way for the big event.
Orchestral strings are introduced in the first breakdown, a symphony of live instrumentation that builds towards the drop, underlined by a stuttering lead and bassline.
Ferry continues to aim to push the envelope of what is possible in dance music, whether that is making a difference by collaborating with the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Ilan Bluestone and DIM3NSION to bring ‘UNITY’ to the trance scene, working on brand new visions such as his recent inaugural System F live show or possibly breaking boundaries as highlighted by his recent debut film score on David Gleeson film ‘Don’t Go’.
‘Surga’ is available now via Flashover Recordings, check it out below.
