Gouryella is an alias and uplifting trance project of Ferry Corsten. Originally a trance act comprising Ferry Corsten and Tiësto together, this was furthered solely by Ferry Corsten 2000 onward, when Tiësto split to concentrate on his solo career.
After 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). Given so, fans are curious to know the reason why Gouryella Live has been brought to life now, after being dormant for over a decade now.
Ferry Corsten told fuse.tv, 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.”
Continuing, the trance producer also explained the differences between himself as an artist and Gouryella:
“In a Ferry Corsten track, I would use certain elements that would be used in a house track or an electro track or a big-room track. I would use those elements and still make it trance-y, but it still has that other character. That is not something I would do in a Gouryella track, a Gouryella track is very specific and different.”
