Dakota – Thoughts Become Things
We’re only halfway through 2009, yet it already looks like this will be the year of Dakota. During his sabbatical in London at the turn of the millennium, Markus Schulz conceived this alter ego for certain productions – a darker, more progressive side of him which has been the foundation for the hallmarked Coldharbour sound. With a flawless, characteristic sound that varies from minimalistic trance, to progressive techno and deep house, ‘Thoughts Become Things’ turns thoughts into motion. Dakota is back in full effect.
Armin van Buuren – Imagine (Special Bonus Tracks Edition)
Imagine is the hotly anticipated third artist album from Armin van Buuren, the world’s number 1 DJ, as voted by the public in DJ Mag’s prestigious poll. Testament to Armin’s ongoing transition from producer to fully-fledged artist, it’s the perfect amalgamation of beats and electronica with lush chords and songwriting. With hit-singles ‘Going Wrong’, ‘In & Out of Love’, ‘Unforgivable’ and ‘Never Say Never’.
Markus Schulz – Without You Near
Markus Schulz’ first artist album ‘Without You Near’, released in 2004. Two years of hard work resulted in this diverse album, on which Markus collaborates with Departure, Gabriel & Dresden, Carrie Skipper, Anita Kelsey and several other big producers and vocalists of EDM. ‘Without You Near’ is an essential album to anyone that appreciates Markus’ sound.
John O’Callaghan – Never Fade Away
John O’Callaghan presented his long-awaited artist album, ‘Never Fade Away’ in May 2009. A 12-headed manifest of John’s diverse sound, from the silent surroundings of a chilled masterpiece called ‘Never Fade Away’ to the likes of speaker blasting, techy ‘Broken’. Where different styles fade into unity and notes uncover hidden meanings, the album also supplies in the necessary danceable beats and contagious vocals.
Sunlounger – Sunny Tales

Sunny Tales is a compilation with, like the title gives away, sunny records with lush melodies and beautiful vocals which bring out the summer in you.
