Biography

Moonman is an alias of the famous Dutch DJ Ferry Corsten.

There are known to be five recordings by Corsten in his Moonman guise: Don’t Be Afraid, Marshfire, Galaxia, First Light and Night Shade.

Marshfire and Night Shade were B-Sides to vinyl releases. There is also some confusion as to the correct spelling of Marshfire (some sources list the track as Marsfire).

The first track seeing a release under this project name was in 1996 and it was called Don’t Be Afraid. Released on Sci-Fi Records, the B-side on this vinyl release was Galaxia. Reaction to Galaxia was so huge that it was released as single (on vinyl) in its own right just one year later. Also in 1997, First Light was released, also on Sci-Fi Records. Galaxia was also given a long overdue CD release by Heat Recordings in 2000, which to date is the last official Moonman release.

Moonman was one of Ferry Corsten’s major projects in the late 1990s and thus many remixes have been released under this name, including: Marc Et Claude - La, Sundance - Sundance, Cascade - Transcend, The Generator - Where Are You Now?, Lovechild - Liberta and Cygnus X - The Orange Theme.

However, this is by no means a definitive list of remixes.

These days, Ferry Corsten prefers to use his own name when releasing music, although he did remix and remaster Galaxia in 2005 and it was released on his L.E.F. studio album in 2006.

    Don't be afraid and First Light are great. Galaxia isn't bad either. I find the original Don't be afraid under the Moonman alias better then the new version on WKND.

    Woah I love the song called Reaching Your Soul. It sounds really similar to Tiesto's Adagio for Strings. I'm pretty sure Ferry Corsten had this version of Samuel Barber's song first.

    I regret haven't listening to Ferry Corsten's alias Moonman before, I think "First Light" is without doubt an essential trance track which should be in most old shool/ classic trance playlists.
