Markus Schulz presents Dakota “Cathedral (Montreal)”

From the bright lights and uplifting emotion of the Los Angeles tribute “Avalon,” Markus Schulz travels north of the border to conclude quarter three of his 2015 city series presentation. A city defined by its afterhours culture, and a venue he himself describes as the Cathedral – Stereo in Montreal. Stereo has been fortunate enough to experience multiple monumental open-to-close sets.

“Cathedral” marks the first official release for Markus under his pseudonym Dakota for over a year. In many aspects, it’s a throwback to his earliest compositions under the name, habitually appearing on famed Bedrock and Yoshitoshi labels.

As the largest city in Québec, Montreal is a remarkably diverse cityscape in which classic European architecture meets contemporary design. At the heart of the city lies the dramatic Notre-Dame Basilica. Hypnotic and infectious, “Cathedral” is the perfect catalyst for those of you who push the boundaries beyond the club’s peak hours, much like the jetsetting producer’s open to close sets. Press play and get ready to lose yourself.

Markus Schulz “Avalon (Los Angeles)”

The City of Angels has played an intrinsic role throughout Markus Schulz‘s storied career, and as part of his 2015 City Series production project, this relationship was a certainty to be honored. And with “Avalon,” it’s upheld in beautiful fashion.

The open to close experience that Markus Schulz has now become famous for made a recent stop at Avalon nightclub on August 8th. The highly anticipated sold-out show, spun solely by Schulz for 12 hours straight, lends ambiance to his latest tribute.

“Avalon” is spine-tingling trance at its very best, with a melody which will sweep you away…and its impact will reach far beyond Southern California.

DJWS – “Welcome To Honolulu” – Lexdray City Series Mix #50

DJWS has deftly created a bassline house-flavored tribute to Honolulu for his entry as the 50th installment in Lexdray’s hallowed City Series of mixes. Packed with classics and fresh hotness alike, White Shadow takes listeners on a raucous but sleek-sounding odyssey through the wide realm of bass-driven house music new and old. This is a mix to unite househeads once and for all, with the lovely islands playing as mental, if not physical, backdrop.

Markus Schulz “City Series” continues with “Bine Facut (Bucharest)”

Last month, Markus Schulz transported us to South Beach’s sexy “Bayfront (Miami)”. For February’s installment of Schulz’s ambitious “City Series” concept, he teams up with Tom Boxer to descend upon a city rich in art, architecture, and culture. This time, the Romanian capital of Bucharest is under focus, with its track titled “Bine Făcut” which translates to ‘well done’.

As one of the phoenix cities of the dance music industry, “Bine Făcut (Bucharest)” explores its deep historical heritage. Teaming up with well-respected Romanian producer, Tom Boxer, the single combines an interestingly brooding melody with sinister basslines for a maximum dancefloor effect.

A recent stay in the Romanian capital for America’s Best DJ 2014, Markus Schulz, coincided with the country’s recent presidential elections, sparking scenes of jubilation amongst the residents. Whilst walking the streets and soaking up the feelings of hope and desire for strong bonds and relations, the events acted as an inspirational catalyst for Markus; sensing an emotion of achievement and accomplishment by the natives, an aspect he felt important to spread to a worldwide audience through his musical vision. Some 24 hours later, he found himself in the studio with Boxer procuring a sound profound enough to encapsulate the country’s developments, intertwined with memorable gigs throughout the years.

“Bine Făcut (Bucharest)” follows the first release from the “City Series,” entitled “Bayfront (Miami).” For the past eight years Markus has created a mix compilation and dedicated it to one city that inspired him that year. He mixes things up this year with his “City Series” which will see a new track each month that’s dedicated to a city that he’ll be playing at during that month. Schulz will record elements of the live show and utilize sounds of the venue to complete the forthcoming compilation titled Markus Schulz– World Tour 2015.

Stay tuned for more “City Series” release announcements and information on Markus’ upcoming tour dates, both solo and as New World Punx (w/ Ferry Corsten).

Markus Schulz’ new monthly release project “City Series”

It was an incredible 2014 for Markus Schulz who once again proved that he’s one of the most versatile and busiest artists in dance music today. From the release of his acclaimed Scream 2 album and subsequent bus tour, mainstage festival performances around the world (he had his own stage at Tomorrowland), residency at Amnesia Ibiza, his acclaimed Global DJ Broadcast Radio Show, marathon open to close DJ sets and countless releases under his various aliases this two-time America’s Best DJ winner does not rest. Oh, and he’s one half of the acclaimed duo New World Punx (with Ferry Corsten) who were just announced as performers at Coachella 2015.

As we step into 2015 Markus Schulz is up for yet another challenge. For the past eight years Markus has created a mix compilation and dedicated it to a city that inspired him that year. The last one he released was Buenos Aires 13. Rather than do another compilation based on one city, in 2015, Markus is introducing his “City Series.” Each month he’ll release a track and dedicate it to a city that he’ll be playing at that month. He will record elements of the live show and utilize sounds of the venue to complete the compilation titled
Markus Schulz– World Tour 2015.

The first release in the “City Series” is entitled “Bayfront (Miami).” Home of the legendary Club Space, the epic Ultra Music Festival and the ever-moving Groove Cruise, Markus’ contributions to all three institutions is vast. “Bayfront (Miami)” drives in the monster truck lane of trance; focused on the tougher side of the genre. it’s easy to see this one going off right before Markus takes you down the rabbit hole during one of his extended sets. That’s Markus’ Miami.

“When examining the cities which have impacted my body of work throughout the years, you have to consider your day-to-day surroundings and the reason why you call a particular place home. Had it not been for my days as a weekly resident at Club Space, I would never have had the privilege of displaying my talents on an international basis. When I learned that I would be welcoming 2015 at Space with a signature open to close solo set, it was only appropriate to commence this project by paying tribute to my home turf. Bayfront is not just a track dedicated to the club, but will play a pivotal role in my appearances at the Groove Cruise in January, and the Ultra Music Festival in March. Unifying these elements is something I hope the Miami natives will enjoy,” Schulz says.

Be on the look out for more “City Series” release announcements and information on Markus’ upcoming tour dates, both solo and as New World Punx (w/ Ferry Corsten).
