Interview with Ferry Corsten

21st June 2017 | Music

Hailing from the Netherlands, Ferry Corsten is truly one of the music legends of our time.


From the outset, he has been a prolific music-maker. With six full-length studio albums under his belt and multiple Gold records to his name with songs – his remix work has seen Ferry line-up alongside star names such as Justin Bieber, U2, The Killers, Public Enemy and more.

As well as all of that, he has performed basically everywhere – including festivals Tomorrowland, Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, clubs such as Amnesia, Space, Ministry of Sound, Avalon, and iconic arenas like Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall, Allphones Arena in Sydney and New York City’s Madison Square Garden.


This year he has released his sixth album, ‘Blureprint a mix between an audio-book and an album. Storyboarded by Ferry alongside David H Miller (‘House of Cards’) the album is just the launching pad for the next stage of Ferry Corsten’s next phase as he tours around Asia, Europe and North America.

James Gilmore interviewed Ferry Corsten following his session on The W!ZARD Sessions about his legacy as a producer and the new ‘Blueprint’ album.

Firefly Festival: Sunday Diary

19th June 2017 | Firefly Festival 2017

Firefly Festival: Sunday Diary

It was great to start my Sunday at Firefly Festival by entering to the incredible booming voice of Jacob Banks who I would end up interviewing later (great guy!) – the crowd were captivated and literally hanging onto his every word.


I think a congratulations is due for all of the survivors on Sunday. With Saturday having such a stacked line-up, people were out late (their words), but by 3pm when I saw Waka Flocka Flame at the Backyard Stage, people were raging like it was 1am on Saturday night. Waka was enjoying his show a lot, jumping in the crowd, dancing with the sign language interpreter, throwing water in the crowd and screaming (a lot!)

Next up I caught the Thirty Seconds to Mars set – and this is where I started to see people fatiguing. I think Thirty Seconds to Mars noticed this as well – so they excited the crowd by having them jump on stage, sing along, etc…


As soon as I finished – I was ready for the main performance I had been looking forward to all weekend: Snakehips.

When I spoke with SAINT WKND earlier wer both found a mutural love of Snakehips’ sound, so we met up over there and got down to all of Snakehips’ biggest hits.

After a brief phone charging break – I was back to see everybody's most talked about act on Sunday night: Muse. People were literally scrambling past me to get there to see them; and I could see why! Matt Bellamy's voice carried out into the night and all in all their set was FANTASTIC, one of my biggest highlights of the weekend.


The hardcore fans were there to see Dillon Francis close out…

Interview with ROZES

18th June 2017 | Firefly Festival 2017

Interview with ROZES

When Elizabeth Mencel released a track called ‘Limelight’ on SoundCloud in 2014 she didn’t quite realise the impact that track would have – not just on her life, but (what would be) countless adoring fans.


Shortly after the Pennsylvania born and raised musician had uploaded the track, Mencel (now going under the name ROZES) was contacted by The Chainsmokers (at that point only known for their track ‘SELFIE’) and ‘Roses’ was born.

With collaborations with the likes of The Chainsmokers, Logic and Cash Cash alongside solo material such as 2016’s debut EP ‘Burn Wild’, ROZES has earned herself legions of fans – many of which made their way to Firefly Festival to see the performer laugh (very loudly!) and sing.


Alex Noize interviewed ROZES at Firefly Festival about her collaboration with The Chainsmokers, English accents and they play Fill In The Blanks.
