© Ferry CorstenLoud Electronic Ferocious is the name of Ferry's latest party concept. With gigs all over the world, he tries to bring out the sound that is going to be featured on his upcoming second artist album, which will carry the same name as the parties. Want to know what this edition was like? Then head in!

With the release of mr. Corsten's second album coming up in September, an array of unique parties has been set up to let the crowds know what they're going to deal with on the album. Ferry is trying to bring out his new and improved sound to the masses, being a tight combination of trance and some electro influences. Editions of the L.E.F. concept have already taken place in famous clubs like Turnmills, the Honeyclub, Godskitchen and the Dutch Matrixx club.

On Friday June 3rd, it was time for Ferry and his mate Ronald van Gelderen to take control of wheels in the well-known Asta club in The Hague, Holland.

Knowing that the event would start around 23:00, we arrived near 23:15 at the entrance of the club. We kind of expected that more people wanted to get in early, but this wasn't the case since there was literally no queue at that time. After going through a rather quick search, we went to hang our jackets in the cloakroom and get some coins for drinks. The area behind the entrance looked rather classy by the way: two symmetric doors leading to the main area, with the 'coins-desk' right in the middle of that. As we walked into the main area, it was still very noticeable that a lot of the people would arrive somewhat later, because no-one was on the dancefloor yet. With Ronald van Gelderen spinning from 23:00 to 01:00, we had ourselves a very nice warm-up!

Lights and RvG


As you can perhaps see a bit on the above picture, the main area itself looks very clean and symmetric as well. With one bar being located at the back of the hall, we were able to get our drinks rather quickly each time. Above the bar was this balcony, but we didn't go there because we wanted to enjoy the music as much as possible. The lighting in the Astra is truly amazing by the way! Lots and lots of moving heads, scanners, stroboscopes and even this huge-ass laser came by (which you'll see on pictures later in this report). An array of mirror balls created an added effect, and there was some decoration as well being mostly flags and posters with things on them that have something to do with the L.E.F. concept. The dancefloor had two stages at the back, on which some special acts did their thing later in the night. The size of the floor fitted the amount of people perfectly: the place wasn't packed, but there was just a nice bit of space you could freak out in.
Mister van Gelderen was spinning a very nice up-tempo trance set. Of course his own tunes 'Cold Storage' and 'F!LTH' came by, but other tracks like Koris vs. DJule - 'Sense of Time' (M.O.R.P.H. vs Scirocco Remix), Solid Globe - 'Lost Cities', Reflekt - 'Need To Feel Loved', Ton TB - 'Dream Machine' (Marco V. Remix) and the amazing new V single 'More Than A Life Away' definitely made me want to get on the dancefloor and party a bit. With the place getting fuller and fuller, the dancefloor started to become occupied as well. With Ronald churning out tune after tune, more and more of the lights were ignited to create a very cool atmosphere. One neat thing was that just the colors of the lights were able to change the whole vibe: while at some times blue was the main color, at other times red was the main ingredient to create a quite different feel.

While the clock was nearing 01:00, there was still no sign of Ferry behind the decks. But that wasn't really a problem, because RvG definitely knew how to keep the crowd entertained. With his last tune being the amazing Arc In The Sky remix for Sunblind - 'Believe', he definitely made the first two-and-a-bit hours of this party really entertaining.

And then, after some half an hour of delay, our main man Ferry Corsten stood behind the decks starting his set. With the dancefloor being almost packed, he started playing his 3,5 hour set and played lots of his own tunes in that distinct Ferry style, but also a bunch of quality trance tracks by other artists. Floorkillers like Ernesto & Bastian's 'Darkside of the Moon' and (again) Marco V's 'More Than A Life Away' really kept things going, but a few of the highlights of his set were some of his ever-working tunes like 'Rock Your Body Rock', 'Right Of Way', the new 'I Love You' and some of his best remixes like the ones for 'Synaesthesia' and 'The Force Of Gravity'. About half an hour in his set, this badass laser started to warm itself up, which looked fantastic in a club the size of Asta. Spitting out numerous colourful variations, it certainly added a rightfully amazing extra bit of atmosphere to the whole party! See a few pictures of it below:

During Ferry's set, the stages I mentioned earlier started to become occupied by two dancers: one (hot) chick on the first one, and a guy on the other. But they weren't just dancing, because at this particular moment they got these fire torches, put some flammable stuff in their mouth, and started igniting the torches to create these huge flames over a part of the dancefloor. All this gave the evening just this extra bit of bite, quite nice.

Laser & lights


As the end of the evening was nearing, Ferry started spinning a few classic tracks to close things off. His own Dance Valley Theme 2001 worked out very well, as well as his classic remix for 'Barber's Adagio For Strings', which was the last tune of the night.

Ferry doing his thing + the floor


All in all, this party was quite the success in my opinion. It wasn't sold out, but the people who were there definitely knew how to create a friendly and laidback atmosphere. Ronald van Gelderen's set was cool, the lighting ruled, the sound was good (though a bit loud at some points; I even had some trouble with my ears with my earplugs in) and Ferry's set was just filled with classy trance. As a result, I'm giving this event an 8 out of 10. Well done!
