Ah, Gouryella. Lets take you back to the year 1999, how many of us were even listening to electronic music at that time? I bet very few of you were even at an age in which that was a possibility. It was only a year away from 2000 and the world was embracing the digital revolution. Talks of the Y2K bug were rampant and while electronic music was not in its infancy, it definitely was still in its growing phases. One of the most beautiful tracks to come out of this massive year was one that would legitimately stand the test of time and continue to move listeners over 15 years later.

So today, on Thanksgiving, I would like to personally take a Trancegiving moment to thank both Tiesto and Ferry Corsten for this fantastic track that as stood the test of time. Gouryella was a duo comprised of these two artists until 2001, when Ferry Corsten became the sole owner of the brand. Maybe someday with the rise of trance again we will have a show in which Gouryella reunites into their original form and plays a classic trance set.

Gouryella’s track, “Gouryella” is hands down one of my all time favorite trance tracks. Enjoy!
