I'm in the middle of the artist album, coming out in February, and we have a very big show coming up in Moscow next month,” Ferry tells DJmag. From the sounds of it, his tour of eight Russian cities is going to be one of those gob-smacking visual experiences likely to stay imprinted in your memory box for some time. “The scene there is really, really good, the way you see them on the dancefloors, hands-in-the-air, on each other's shoulders, going nuts.” This year Ferry hosted his own Ibiza night, Full On Ferry at Sankeys, the first time in his 10 years of playing there that he wasn't under someone else's flag. Currently, he has a DJ competition on his site - the ultimate prize-winner will get to support him on tour next year, no less. “It's more like a stepping stone for aspiring DJs and producers. Although the focus is in Russia, it's a worldwide thing,” Ferry signs off.
