These votes determine the Corsten’s Countdown Chart, a Top 10 show at the end of each month. Corsten’s Countdown is also recently available to download as a weekly podcast.
2010 is set to be one of Ferry Corsten’s busiest years yet. Corsten just finished the follow up of his latest compilation album Once Upon A Night Vol. 2 with exclusive material and busy touring the globe with Once Upon A Night: The Experience, preparing another artist album under his own name which will be released somewhere next year.
It’s an ambitious schedule, but one in which Ferry Corsten has built his career on in past years. Someone who has had as many hits, rocked as many dance floors, produced so many classics, as Corsten would be forgiven for taking a hiatus and basking in the accolades. But there are still future classics to be made and people the world over to be entertained. And with a master who has already proven himself time and again running the show, the legend’s career is just starting.
