Markus Schulz - Coldharbour Sessions 2004

ARMA005 - May 31st, 2013

Markus Schulz is a true pioneer in every sense of the word. When approached to compile and mix this compilation his first thoughts were not of which tracks he should use, but rather who he should work with to create something completely new and refreshing. Having asked artists he knows and admires to contribute, co-produce, and remix exclusively, this double cd you hold inyour hands is indeed new and refreshing; including new exclusive tracks, as well as some otherwise unheard remixes of some of yourfavorites.There is no particular style or label for this music. So many people like their music labeled, like nice little packages tied up with bows ready for you to pick up and open. Not this. This is new. This is something created out of love, a love for the musicthat was kindled many years ago when as a child Markus went with his 4th grade class to visit a radio station in Germany . A lovefor music that has evolved and grown over years. Years of triumph and heartbreak, years of travel with delayed flights and lost record boxes, years of creating and hard work. And moves from his birthplace in Germany to Boston, to Arizona, back across the Atlantic to London and now to his home in Miami. The music on these discs is all a product of this change, an evolution if you will. While throughout his life, Markus has traveled extensively; his true home is in the studio, where he creates with his mind, body and soul. This cd is named for the place that has influenced him the greatest, providing him with the inspiration to allow his style and sound to evolve. Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, London. The place where Markus called home for two years, literally eating, sleeping and working in his small studio space, where he dared to challenge the norm, and laid the foundation of a new style and sound all his own.As mentioned before, this CD consists of exclusive tracks and remixes, provided by some of Markus™s most admired artists. From theopening sequence by Christian Rusch, whom Markus contacted as soon as the plans were laid for this cd to the final track by GeorgeHales that took over 3 months to perfect. Markus is a long time admirer of Christian™s composition skills, Christians beautiful track šNumb› can be summed up in one word šbliss›. The second track is another track made exclusively for Markus, NYC duo of Filo and Peri, who have racked up many hours online chatting about everything from engineering technique to Dom™s failed NBA career. Their massive hit Under The Sun is also included with a special intro mix. The Pinkbox Special guys from Texas (Peter Martin and Derek Howel) who first sent Markus a 12-minute long version of šSimple› and so graciously changed the arrangement and re-masteredit for the cd. And of Course the massive track šPerfect Wave› that Markus first started playing out this past summer. San Mehat, a Montreal nightclub owner, whos passion for music is so great that he has his own studio, churning out dark melodic numbers that are the perfect soundtrack for reflecting. Ironically, San™s club is known for playing tribal Circuit House. Perry O™Neil who Markus was first introduced to with his massive progger Kubik, and his collaboration with Robert Nickson who Markus meet when theyboth remixed Karada™s šLast Flight› for Lost Language. Perry is also featured with his incredible unreleased dub of šAs The Rush Comes›, Ozgur Can™s šSometimes› that proves that you don™t need to have racks and racks of studio gear. You just need to have passion and an ear for sound. Mark Otten who™s track šMushroom Therapy› inspired many successful days and nights where Markus waspreviously just staring at an empty computer screen with just a kick drum going. It was a no brainer for Markus when he first heard Armin play šTranquility› as his opening tune at their gig at Level in Miami, to call up Maykel at Armada and offer to remix it. Airwave, who™s track šWhen things go wrong› still travels around in Markus™s record box is another
