Ferry Corsten - L.E.F. (Loud Electronic Ferocious)

Released on Ultra Records, 7/11/06

For those of you who are not acquainted with one, Ferry Corsten, this dance-hall-DJ-super-producer-pioneer has been making house arrests around the music block for more than seventeen years. His renowned production work has been crafted under his scads of aliases, branding his mark with well-known names such as U2 (“New Year’s Day”), Moby (“Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad”), William Orbit (“Barber’s Adagio for Strings”), just to name a few. L.E.F. (Loud, Electronic, Ferocious) is a stand-off for its punchy rhythm, unstoppable vibes pulsating out of his second full-length album.

The first single, “Fire” is already bulleting up the charts fronted by the unmistakable vocals from Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran. Dutchman, Corsten spins his anthems while encasing his Ibiza-esque-antics thoroughly charged with optimal fervor featuring guest vocals by Howard Jones, Guru, Debra Andrew, Oz, and Denise Stahlie. “Cubikated” conducts its fetching electro-trance melody from 808 State’s “Cubik” masterfully remixed in a thunderous bopping composition.

L.E.F. is not just a containment of heart palpitated beats as Corsten weaves in a couple of decelerated tunes to lend a break for breath. While L.E.F. is not for the teetotaler, it is an ascribed signet for the dance runway of his musical journey.
