Ministry Of Sound Presents Trance Nation Mixed By Markus Schulz
You spoke. They listened!
A Gallery resident of long and every bit as illustrious standing, his MoS mix journeys have taken clubbers down trance paths as range-wide as they are long and thrill-packed. Almost as quickly associated with the Ministry’s The Gallery night as the word ‘trance’ itself, he enjoys a reverence reserved for the very few.
Priming the first mix with ‘Fibreglasses’ - Chicane’s liquid cool latest and Gai Barone’s brooding ‘Un-Theme’, Markus fashions a deeply dug entrenchment for the intro. Supplying sonic ether of the darker variety too are ‘Twilight of the Night’ from Dakota – Markus’ moodier mode and Marscela’s (Schulz again) pad-soaked ‘Time Plex’. Further in and bigger yet guns rollout. Schulz’s trance-floor penetrating rework of Moroder/Sia Billboard smash ‘Déjà Vu’; August’s DJ Mag Single of the Month ‘Juno’ from Rank 1 & M.I.K.E. Push and Ferry Corsten’s ‘Homeward’ all blaze their own paths through the disc’s midsection. Carving out its latter stages meanwhile is a host from the Coldharbour Recordings élite, with empyrean vocal numbers from Tenishia ft. Adina Butar & Nifra ft. Seri + instrumental cuts from Mr. Pit vs. Fisherman & Hawkins, & Klauss Goulart. Bringing first disc proceedings to their boiling point is the Markus/Delacey collab (and former Beatport #1) ‘Destiny’.
On mixing his Trance Nation, Markus said: “From resident on Coldharbour Lane to international resident at Ministry of Sound, the club and the city of London have played a pivotal role in my career development. I am privileged to be able to connect with so many amazing people globally through our love of melodies and trance, and having the opportunity to join the cast list of names associated with a heralded series such as Trance Nation is a huge honour. The compilation is a snapshot of the residency nights, with some of the most important compositions from past, present and future; and hopefully will encourage more of you to travel and contribute towards creating new memories together in the coming years”.
Charging its opening moments with the new Coldharbour Intro Mix of his & Vassy’s ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ (Bombay), right off Mix 2’s bat, Markus is swinging for the fence. Other ‘destinations’ from Schulz’s 2015 City Series quickly arrive, with a midpoint stop-off in London for the Ministry-dedicated ‘Lost In The Box’ and the ‘Trance Nation’ exclusive outro version of ‘Avalon (LA)’. Running between them is a mass effect of other exclusives. Purple Stories fresh take on neo-classic ‘City of Angels’ from Elevation vs. Grube & Hovsepian; the riff stridence of Danilo Ercole’s ‘Format’ abounds and ‘Knightfall’ & ‘Worlds Apart’ from, Arkham Knights & Artisan rock blocks respectively. Bringing Disc 2 to its towering, uplifting conclusion are Gouryella’s comeback release ‘Anahera’ and Ferry & Markus together on New World Punx’s Coachella-destroying ‘Memories’.
So Trance Family, those calls were heard, those calls have now been answered! You wanted Schulz. South London’s finest are giving you Schulz… 36 different ways! Trance Nation Mixed By Markus Schulz’ is out on October 2nd.
