Ferry Corsten Explains Why His Gouryella Alias Made a Comeback

Ferry Corsten has been on DJ scene since the '90s, which has seen the Dutch producer delivering loads of tracks under his birth name, in addition to a slew of beloved aliases. One of his most beloved is Gouryella, which is focused on uplifting trance music and hasn't been heard from since 1999. The Gouryella guise made a comeback last year via the track "Anahera" and it continued with a set at Electric Daisy New York 2016 on Saturday (May 14).

Corsten told us backstage at the festival about why Gouryella made a comeback in 2015:

"I felt like bringing Gouryella back for a certain personal tiredness of what was going on in the scene. I was sick and tired of all the 'Put your hands up, put your fucking hands up!' whatever. Without getting too sentimental, I felt like I wanted to bring back that old sentiment and emotion from the turn of the century type-of-thing. I thought it was the right moment."
