New compilation out by one of my favourite DJ’s, Ferry Corsten, it’s entitled Full On Ferry Ibiza, it’s got a decent sound to it and from what I’ve listened to so far, progresses rather nicely and has nice appeal to a wide variety of trance lovers. I must warn though there is a bit of commercial sounding stuff but I think it’s quite well balanced overall.
As the title suggests, it’s a representation of the music he’s played on his Full On Ferry shows in Ibiza and being the summer time over there means the compilation has a love vibrant sound it. Great for casual listening and I rate it.
Went through my music folder to find some tunes to run along to and came across a rather old compilation, Global Gathering ’05. This song’s the first track from the second CD and I heard this song again for a long time and just thought wow, this stuff was amazing. Such a mellow and beautiful tune.
Might go through my song collection some more and dig up some old gems. So nostalgic.
Nabbed myself a copy of this last night and started listening to it and I gotta say, I quite like what I’m hearing. It’s a bit different to my usual postings but I’ve been after something more easy listening for the times you want to unwind.
Ministry of sound describes the compilation as:
Ministry of Sound continue explore the softer side of music by releasing the latest edition in the Chilled series. Afterhours is an alternative take on previous albums combining a mixture of genres & introducing new artists to create a brand new laidback listening experience.
It’s a bit different to the regular chillout sessions that the Ministry of Sound bring out every year, so give it a shot if you find that a bit too slow. The 3 CD compilation has a different sound and vibe per disc so you could probably find something more suitable to your tastes. My personal perception of the music on the compilation would be somewhat like a modern electronic equivalent of Jazz.
Favourite song so far (aside from ‘To Build a Home’ by The Cinematic Orchestra) would be ‘Pictures’ by Benjamin Francis Leftwich.
