Ferry's down under for the first week of February warming up for his appearence at this year's 'Energy' event on the 19th. He's up for a few IDMA's, has just released the lost tapes and has a new Blackberry app for you to have a play with. All that and more in this month's update...
You can now keep up to date with Ferry Corsten 24/7 with his official application originally released on the iPhone now available on the Blackberry. Good timing that Ferry as I've just recently got myself a 'Berry'. He has a lot more things to let you in on this month with a very interesting ID contest, based on a few he's run before on his official forum, he drops 40 tracks in a short clip and you have to ID them all. I can't imagine much trouble with that as Ferry's productions are world renowned. Ferry has also joined the WWF to show his support for their Dutch ‘Pass The Earth’ campaign. He does have a soft side after all, mind you; who doesn’t find Panda’s adorable?

FERRY CORSTEN MEMBER OF THE DUTCH WORLD WILDLIFE FUND WORLDTEAM
On January 13th 2011, the Dutch World Wildlife Fund presented it's new Worldteam to the press. International DJ / producer Ferry Corsten, together with ten other famous Dutch people who are committed to the goals of WWF, joined the Worldteam. Depending on personal interest or professional involvement, the members of the team will support the different goals of the WWF and the overall Dutch campaign 'Pass the Earth'.
Ferry Corsten flies around the world to be able to perform for all his fans. Not only does this give him the opportunity to see all the beauty the different continents have to offer, it also makes him see that beautiful scenery starts to disappear. Corsten wants to pass on the beauty of the Earth to all following generations and therefore agrees wholeheartedly with the objectives of the WWF. He also sees an opportunity in this commitment to compensate for all the miles he makes flying around the world and give something back to nature.
"I pass on the Earth because every generation has the right to enjoy its beauty, just as I am doing and the previous generations have done." Ferry Corsten on the Dutch WWF campaign 'Pass the Earth'.
