A track has been floating around for a while now under the title I.D – Come On, named after the vocal sample which features throughout. It has now been revealed that this dark and dirty piece of trance is the work of Dutch legend Ferry Corsten.
Diss an interesting mix of styles. There’s a lot of modern trends at work here–the snares on every beat during the big builds and drops–but there’s also a very clear influence from the trance of old, largely in the form of rolling bass lines and the arpeggiated lead line, straight off the same JP8000 that Ferry made famous in tracks such as Out Of The Blue and Gouryella, albeit pitched down a bit with some heavy side-chaining. It’s an effect that really makes the track “pump” and adds to the enormous feel.
Diss is another addition to Ferry’s style of late–it’s trance, but darker, deeper, more experimental. At the same time it also avoids the stereotypes of the more commercial end of the “big room” trance, while still maintaining a subtle nod in that direction. Ferry has always been an innovator and Diss is a fine example of that. Out now on Beatport, it’s little wonder this track attracted a lot of attention before anyone even knew who was behind it.
