Courtesy of Flashover Recordings, the new track is a straight jolt of old school rave energy yet is decidedly different from the progressive trance sound from the 45-year-old. Such is the point of UNITY – to take in all the different offshoots of trance and combine them into a cohesive sound. The melody, vocals and BPM all come together to create something that is new, but also familiar.
Corsten made a statement about the new production, saying: “Gabriel & Dresden and myself have been working on this track for over a year now, and I’m really happy with the result! I never thought a collaboration between us would end up being such a driving, industrial track, so it was a very fun project to work on!”
G&D tacked on their own take: “The word ‘legend’ gets thrown around a lot today. We see folks calling artists who have only been around a few years ‘legends’ on the daily. But, Ferry Corsten is different. He is the one who invented the blueprint for the modern trance sound, so to be able to work with him on a song, using the same exact synthesizer he used to make many of his classics (Roland JP-8000) was truly a dream come true for us. We wanted to celebrate with this song the massive influence Ferry has had on not only us but so many of our peers too.”
