New track: MARKUS SCHULZ & DAIMY LOTUS - ARE YOU WITH ME [Black Hole Recordings]

‘Indestructible’ in name and nature, with its Feb-released/Adina Butar-sung first single, Markus Schulz gave us a big open for his upcoming 2020 album. Now with spring in full swing, he’s primed a new precursor for it - and one that comparably resonates with ‘brighter days’ vibes.

‘Are You With Me’ introduces planet dance to an entity the Dutch music & festival scenes have been familiar with for time - the reflective songs & affecting tones of Daimy Lotus. Lyrically ‘Are You With Me’ delivers something that’s half question and half statement - creatively echoing the complex & occasionally conflicting natures of a relationship. At its centre though, the message is clear: exposing vulnerabilities in the pursuit of clarity is worth the emotional price. Daimy delivers her message with a burgeoning spirit that - come the end of the chorus – becomes absolute.

A task to which it’s more than equal, Markus’s Album Mix lets Daimy’s voice & song do all the heavy lifting. As moving as it is memorable, he backs it with guitar thrum, trace piano and persuasive percussive elements. His Extended Mix meanwhile is an APB for the airwaves. Upping the drums and pulsing with advanced tempo & energy, it has lust-for-life written big print large throughout.

An anthem for those with the guts to lay it on the line (and shake off some uncertainty in the process), ‘Are You With Me’ drops today and is available to stream/purchase here (markusschulz.complete.me/areyouwithme).

New track: Markus Schulz & Jes - Calling For Love [Coldharbour Recordings]

Having just last month brought floors to full roar through the Emma Hewitt-sung ‘Safe From Harm’, Markus Schulz is poised with another epic first-time team-up.  This time Markus x JES is the equation, and if you’re wondering how that’s never have happened before, well the queue forms to the left! Analysis is now academic as two of trance’s greats bridge the studio/song gap with the soul-stirringly moving ‘Calling For Love’.

In its all-day-play radio version, first contact with ‘Calling’ came through April’s interlinked ‘In Bloom EP’ and GDJB show. For it’s standalone release, Markus has club-equipped the Extended Mix with all the necessaries to see it reign equally at night. Tapping the tempo gas, ‘Calling’s production’s been galvanised by hardier drums, hastening snares, percussive march and - in its latter stages - synth-radiance. By turns strong, optimistic, defiant, wrought and lamenting, JES’ song is a swirl of contending emotions, lyrically & vocally encapsulating her theme.

‘Calling For Love’s official video will shortly join fellow ‘In Bloom’ single ‘Safe From Harm’s (which passed the 1 million YouTube views marker last week) online. Meantime, you can stream/purchase the Extended Mix of ‘Calling For Love’ here: http://markusschulz.choons.at/callingforlove
