Over the weekend I was lucky enough to go to Sirius XM’s studio in NY and sit in on Corsten’s Countdown 2012. In case you missed it, Ferry Corsten did an 8-hour set this past Saturday which concluded with the top 10 countdown for 2012. This was an amazing experience to get to see the set-up of the studio, and also to see how Ferry is as a person when he’s not doing larger live performances. Watching him through the set, it’s easy to see he loves what he’s doing and enjoys bringing the music he loves to his fans across the globe. There was also a live acoustic performance performed by Betsie Larkin, who some of you may know from her collaborations with Ferry on tracks like Made of Love and Feel You. All in all, it was a great day and I can’t wait for more to come in 2013. You can also get a re-run of the episode here.
