2020 has been a difficult year for artists and fans alike. Faced with far-reaching restrictions that have affected everybody from all walks of life, Ferry Corsten reached out to fans to engage with him on a collaborative project to make the best of a difficult situation and unite the trance community. The resulting collaboration, “Free”, is testament to the power of music and its ability to bring people together. With over 20 artists from all over the globe contributing to “Free”, the latest and perhaps most poignant evolution in the UNITY series serves to offer solace and further strengthens the sense of community that has always resonated within trance music.
“Free” begins in fitting fashion, with different voices repeating the word unity in different languages. The skills of each participant are on show in abundance through the creativity and individuality that can be heard throughout each element, as Ferry utilises his years of studio experience to craft a finished track from its constituent parts that is simultaneously cohesive, poignant and reflective of the UNITY message.
On working on the project and his thoughts on the final result, Ferry notes: “This project is the very core of what I set about to create with UNITY. To bring musical creators together to create something special and use that unison for something good. Whilst I did start UNITY with my fellow DJs in mind, I always wanted to explore the possibility of doing more fan involved projects as the foundations of the platform grew. Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisaged a year like what 2020 has been, but I’m happy that something so powerful, explorative and mainly fun came out of this crazy year. Working with all of the participants involved in this release has been such a joyful event for me. I’d like to thank them, and all those that submitted parts for consideration, for this release. I love you guys!”
