For the luckiest amongst us, life can be a fairytale. At long last, the third and latest installment of
the popular electronic dance music (EDM) mix compilation Once Upon A Night is released on
November 26th, 2012, on Premier Recordings.
Mixed by globally respected DJ, producer and electronic musician, Ferry Corsten, Once Upon A
Night-Volume 3 consists of two discs of the most succulent, painstakingly selected trance,
progressive-house and electro tracks to fly out of loudspeakers this year. Much more agile and
thoughtful than the typical club mix of banging, anthemic tunes, OUAN3 instead paints an
otherworldly story of a long night out where danger and mystery meet sex and bliss.
OUAN3 is an aural tale that conjures deep memories while creating new ones, and the doubledisc
compilation perfectly captures the tense excitement one feels right before embarking on a
night on-the-town. Ferry Corsten is a master at crafting epic audio voyages and in Corstenâ€™s
world, anything can happen.
Disc-one kicks off with Klauss Goulartâ€™s provocative â€œOne Tear Awayâ€ before lifting off into the
heavens with Analog Sound Departmentâ€™s soaring â€œGreetings,â€ then seguing seamlessly into
Amyr-Sâ€™s incredibly gorgeous â€œPriceless Time.â€ Denverâ€™s Beta Nightclub resident DJs, Dragon &
Jontron, team with Lea Luna on the dirty-yet-thrilling â€œTonightâ€ before dipping into Guy Mearnsâ€™
trance-loving â€œK8.â€ Yuri Kane brings the vocals of Jeza front-and-center on the heartbreaking
â€œLove Comesâ€ just as M.I.K.E.â€™s booming, euphoric â€œAny Directionâ€ makes its impact felt.
Felix Leiterâ€™s zippy electro-house track, â€œNobodyâ€™s Going Anywhere,â€ precedes Tellurâ€™s snarling,
stomping â€œYouâ€ before exploding into Cosmic Gateâ€™s muscular trance annihilator, â€œCrushed,â€ an
explosive track that descends from upon high. Ferry Corstenâ€™s own â€œSilfraâ€ follows with beaming
rays of acoustic sunshine, a tune Corstenâ€™s fans have hungrily demanded during his live DJ sets.
Festenâ€™s obliterating â€œGive It To Themâ€ conjures a chaotic dreamscape heading into Kamoâ€™s
massive â€œVocoderâ€ before Bulat Nanox closes CD1 with the insistent and victorious â€œVodka.â€
Disc-two begins with Moonpaxâ€™s magical â€œAvantgardâ€ before diving into Purple Storiesâ€™ hands-inthe-
air â€œPath To Nowhereâ€ and Husmanâ€™s stunning â€œE.D.M.â€ JC Chasezâ€™s vocals grace BTâ€™s
â€œForce Of Gravity,â€ an extraordinarily beautiful and haunting song.
Afterwards, Ellie Lawsonâ€™s vocals augment Ferry Corstenâ€™s lifesaving, achingly magnificent â€œA
Day Without Rain.â€ Andainâ€™s breathy voice mesmerizes on the spellbinding â€œWhat Itâ€™s Like,â€ then
itâ€™s on to REZarinâ€™s stimulating â€œCambodia.â€ Flashtechâ€™s filthy production on â€œThe Right Wayâ€
gives way to Setrise vs Johann Stoneâ€™s earth-shaking â€œMNE.â€ Arunaâ€™s radio-friendly â€œSave The
Dayâ€ is another bright spot on this brilliant compilation, followed by Sound Quelleâ€™s invigorating
â€œ7.07â€ and Marsbeing and MalYarâ€™s irresistible â€œWalking To The Stars.â€ Alas, the piece de
resistance is Ferry Corsten vs Markus Schulzâ€™s â€œStella,â€ the duoâ€™s shockingly good remake of
Jam & Spoonâ€™s classic track and one of the best recordings ever made.
A Ferry Corsten Fix of the new Dash Berlin finishes off CD2 with â€œWhen You Were Aroundâ€
featuring Kate Walsh and music-lovers will agree that OUAN3 is undoubtedly one of the best
compilations of the year
