As the year draws to a close, Ferry Corsten returns for the final UNITY release of 2018, drafting in Anjunabeats regular Ilan Bluestone for the hotly anticipated ‘We’re Not Going Home’, as the project continues to build momentum. Having worked together on the track for a number of months, the commitment to perfection shown by both is evident as ‘We’re Not Going Home’ displays an accomplished and aesthetically pleasing result, something you’d expect from the coming together of such experienced musical minds.
Having been invited to perform at recent UNITY shows across the US, along with countless time spent together behind DJ booths across festivals and club shows worldwide, Ilan Bluestone is the perfect fit for the next instalment in the UNITY chapter and the harmony is on show with ‘We’re Not Going Home’. The pair integrate their trademark sounds perfectly to create a synergy that makes the most of both artists strengths and ability to think outside the box, highlighted by breaks in the build which provide the platform for multiple melodic layers to weave intricately, encapsulated in a crescendo of euphoria which propels the track to the next level – a fitting way to close out a year of releases for the UNITY project.
On working on the collaboration for UNITY with Ferry Corsten, Ilan Bluestone said “I’ve always looked up to Ferry as an absolute legend. To be invited to his home and spend time with him and his family and studio has been one of the most surreal moments of my life. We have always wanted to do a song together after touring, and this track naturally was a combination of my sound with ferry’s legendary sounds.”
After launching the UNITY project early in the year with Paul Oakenfold collaboration ‘A Slice Of Heaven’, Ferry has worked with DIM3NSION, Jordan Suckley and Saad Ayub before this collaboration with Ilan Bluestone, making the most of his privileged position within the trance community to give back to the cause that has giving him so much, and recently made his first donation to VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, an educational programme founded to give youth the chance to explore their own journeys within music in the form of the organization’s Music Tech Grant programme.
‘We’re Not Going Home’ is out now via Flashover Recordings.
