Out now on iTunes: Coldharbour Selections Part 25January 19th, 2011
2010 was a year of milestones and celebrations for Markus Schulz’s Coldharbour Recordings label, solidifying itself as part of the trance elite. With the 100th release passed and the Do You Dream journey at full speed, we swing into gear for 2011 with an absolute bang – and celebrate another milestone in the process.
The Coldharbour Selections strand has remained a constant throughout the lifespan of the label, showcasing three tracks which have become established and championed favorites by the listeners to Markus’ famous Global DJ Broadcast radio show.
First up is the latest smash hit from one of Coldharbour’s favorite sons, Englishman Mike Foyle. Under his Statica alias, he has contributed immensely to the success of the label for many years, and delivers the goods once again with Headrush – boasting a tough, rhythmic bassline and a big room breakdown which has rocked World Tour audiences in Toronto, Bucharest and Kiev. Headrush was one of the outstanding tracks in 2010, and its legacy will continue well into 2011.
The big room theme continues with Mike’s occasional collaborative partner making his production debut for Coldharbour. Estonia’s Rene Pais delighted followers with his interpretation of Mr. Pit’s Shana for Coldharbour 100, and follows up in supreme fashion with the track Second Chapter – another World Tour highlight in Moscow and Cape Town. DNS Project continues to go from strength to strength, and his efforts with Second Chapter show that he is currently on the top of his game.
And last but not least, we feature another production from an Irish duo many christened as the new heroes of Coldharbour in 2010. Kevin Murphy and Danny Cullen have earned huge plaudits from Markus and the online community with their Tucandeo work. Lockdown possesses those quintessential Coldharbour qualities of a deep bassline, luscious pads and a spine-tingling melody that will hook the listener in.
When you combine the three tracks on offer, Markus has laid down a marker for Coldharbour in 2011. The bar has already been set high with this release alone.
