We first saw New World Punx opening for Armin van Buuren at their debut arena show: A State Of Trance 600 at Madison Square Garden (listen here). Composed of trance titans Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz, the duo began collaborating after playing some back-to-back sets at previous shows. When we heard they were on tour, this time as headliners, we leapt at the chance to witness their wizardry once again, this time at the historic (and, unfortunately, soon-to-be-closing) Roseland Ballroom. The show took place this past Saturday, November 23, and featured an incredible four hour set of lush sonic textures, soaring angelic vocals, and hard throbbing beats delivered straight to our eardrums from the power pair.
Trance maven, Ferry Corsten, is back at it again and is soon releasing his brand new album titled, 'Once Upon A Night Vol. 4' through Premier Recordings.
On November 28th, Trance lovers worldwide can grab his latest album which is a continuation of his 'Once Upon A Night' series. His journey is now developing to encompass the ever-growing diversity in dance music, which this seasoned veteran is turning into his own sound.
With melodic vocals that stays true to his roots, Corsten delivers to his loyal fans with his skilled assurance while delving deeper onto trancier grounds, all in one album.
The album will be composed of two discs with 27 tracks in total, so let the Corsten marathon reign supreme once it is released.

With the teaser already reaching 26,000 plays on Soundcloud, "Many Ways" the new banger by veteran DJ Ferry Corsten, is already making a splash in the EDM world.
With its pop vocals from the lovely Jenny Wahlström, "Many Ways" already feels like every EDM festival's anthem. The type of track every DJ loves to play to get the crowd going wild!
The build-up incoporates great vocals and drum and bass all leading up to an explosive drop (I can see the confetti and fireworks now!) But this is no surprise since Ferry Corsten has been mastering his technique since I was in diapers (90's baby!) For 2 decades now Corsten has produced nothing but electronic dance hits and is showing no signs of slowing down, especially after this track! Whether you call it techno or EDM it is no surpise that the scene has changed dramatically in the past 2 decades, but its DJs like Ferry who can effortlessly keep up with the times who keep us out of our seats and dancing till sunrise!
Take a listen to the teaser for "Many Ways" from Ferry Corsten's Soundcloud:
If anyone has earned the right to headline his own curated stage on the first day of TomorrowWorld, it’s Ferry Corsten. The trailblazer of trance blessed the inaugural festival’s crowd with ten hours of unmatched talent at his Full-On stage, spinning back-to-back with each performer at the end of their sets for an unprecedented medley of musical fusion. We had a chance to chat with Corsten before his TomorrowWorld debut about his iconic radio show, his New World Punx side project and his future plans for producing nightclub bangers.
Markus Schulz doesn’t show any sign of ever slowing down. With Buenos Aires ’13 just released this week and Scream II coming out early next year, the Coldharbour founder couldn’t be any happier. We had a chance to talk to Markus this past weekend while he was in Gainesville, Florida, just a few hours from his home in Miami. Markus chatted about his experience on the Groove Cruise, what it’s like working with Ferry Corsten, and his awesome fans.
For us, Electric Zoo began before we even set foot on Randalls Island. Rather, we began our adventure on a slight detour to the LES to attend a press cocktail with one of trance's biggest names- Ferry Corsten. His team treated us extremely well, offering us drinks by the poolside as we waited to speak with him about the progression of Electric Zoo and EDM culture, the Full-On Stage at Tomorrowworld, and New World Punx, to name a few. What we enjoyed most about speaking to Ferry was that he was particularly humble, and he gave thorough answers which is always a gift. He has just released his latest episode of Corsten's Countdown (#323) and his set from Ezoo, both of which you can listen to below.
The end of a music festival is always depressing. We often tend to make it sadder than it really is or needs to be, maybe because we’re slightly dramatic, or maybe just because we’re simply in love with the music and the festival environment. Whatever the case may be, most of us go through a withdrawal period spanning from a few days to a few weeks. It makes sense though, because the hype continues to prolong with each year. If you haven’t noticed, Ultra Music Festival tickets went on sale in May this year as opposed to in October. We'll admit it— many of us are spoiled, and many of us demand the best of the best. With productions that promise to outdo themselves each consecutive year, we can’t help but to get overly excited for a major festival a year in advance. But those three (in this case, two) days pass by so quickly that when it finally ends, we think to ourselves, “F*ck. It’s already over?” The buildup is intense, but the comedown back to reality hits you harder than you’d think. Particularly with the abrupt ending to Electric Zoo.
Ministry of Sound recently released the highly anticipated Trance Nation album, mixed by the father of trance himself, Lange. Between this and the release of his third artist album at the end of this year, the DJ and producer is staying very busy. Lange took some time to fill us in on the mixing of Trance Nation and the exciting year ahead.
What was your reaction when first presented with the opportunity to mix Trance Nation for Ministry of Sound?
The past year has seen trance mainstays Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten sneakily plot what could be the collaboration of the century. What started as a laugh at a barbecue in Ibiza has grown into an epic reality and an unstoppable force, culminating in the duo's global debut under the moniker New World Punx this past Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
