Markus Schulz announces “Scream 2” North American Bus Tour

Scream 2 Cover ArtMarkus Schulz today announces that he’s taking his much anticipated artist album, Scream 2, on the road for an exciting 18-wheel trek across the USA and Canada throughout April.

Using his recent string of Scream 2 record release parties as an indicator, one never knows what to expect from Markus as he thrives regardless of the situation. In Los Angeles he sold out the Sound Club months in advance and played before an intimate crowd hungry for the big room sound in close quarters. In Miami, Markus rewarded his hometown fans at Mansion with a lengthy set that spanned his own back catalogue, new productions and personal favorites. That brings us to New York’s Pacha; an event where fans witnessed Markus play from open to close – that’s 10PM until 830AM. The floor was already jam packed by 1030PM and remained this way until Markus dropped his final track the next morning. All said, Markus played over 125 tracks that weaved through trance, deep house, techno and nearly everything in between.

These three record release parties still have people buzzing and now Markus is bringing his inimitable style of DJing to fans across the USA and Canada. The Scream 2 bus tour kicks off with a string of dates in California before heading to Texas, the Midwest and Montreal before winding its way down the east coast. The tour will also feature state of the art production that will make this an unmissable dance music event.

Markus Schulz – Buenos Aires ’13 Album Review

markus schulz official 2012Markus Schulz, 38 year old, German, veteran Trance producer, and founder of Coldharbour Recordings releases a brand new 2 part CD mix of his tracks along with tracks from fellow Coldharbour Artists. Some of the artists are KhoMHa, Rex Mundi, Protoculture, and Solarstone just to name a few partake in one of the greatest Trance albums of 2013. This album takes us on a journey to Buenos Aires, Argentina and gives us the sounds and the admiration of fans that love the Coldharbour Sound. Since it’ll be too much to write about each song in particular I thought it would be best to give you my favorite picks from both CDs.

From CD1 one of my favorite tracks comes from KhoMHa called “Cyclone.” Cyclone is a high energy driven track that is created with saw arpeggiators, and a full layered synth that brings the track to another level.

The next track is Aureolo by Rex Mundi, This track has a dark atmospheric synth that creates the mood and is slightly changing while it resides in the background. In the climax of the track, it is heavily compressed to give it a more bouncy and exhilarating drop.

“Markus Schulz Presents Dakota – Barracas” gives off a classic euro trance synth with an arp like sound echoing through out the track. If you guys want some classic Markus Schulz this is definitely the track to obtain.

“Markus Schulz featuring Ana Diaz – Nothing Without Me (Markus Schulz Shadows of Coldharbour Remix)” Markus Schulz comes back and revisits his song Nothing Without Me to give it a more depressing, dark, yet uplifting version modernizing this classic track. The vocals are amazing and captivating that it follows the sadness of the synths, and it is complemented beautifully.

“Markus Schulz – Remember This” is leaning more into the hard trance genre but its a great mix between hard trance and regular trance. His synths are a variety of both trance and sounds that Hardwell makes in his productions.

From CD2

“Protoculture – Talisman” This is the first track to start of the second CD, which in my opinion was a great choice. This track has a slightly detuned synth that gives it a sense of unison and creates a great opening for the break.

“Markus Schulz & Rex Mundi – Towards the Sun” has a electro beat and some dirty saw synths that give it more of an electro feel for a trance song. The pianos that come in after the drop give it an uplifting feel to it.

“KhoMHa – Dimensional” This track is as driven as his song Cyclone except the synth is a bit more compressed letting the chords fill in the extra sound giving it a more trance feel.

“Elevation Vs Grube & Hovsepian – Fair Winds” This track has one of the best build ups on this album, it definitely delivers the bass and the hi hats complement the kicks so well.

“Solid Stone – Scrambled” I really love the synths on this track because its very reminiscent to the Anjunabeats/Enhanced Sounds on most of their releases. Its a solid track from beginning to end.

“Digital X – Phantom” This track also brings back a lot of classical elements from Tiesto tracks back when he started making Trance. It sounds like this could be a Tiesto track if he still continued that path of making Trance.

“Skytech – The Other Side” This is another hard hitting tracks that should definitely be played as a closer to keep the crowd wanting more. Some of the synths remind me of Sun & Moon and also Silvia(Sebastian Ingrosso & Dirty South Remix)

The last song I want to mention on here is “Solarstone – Solarcoaster (Markus Schulz Coldharbour Remix)” This is the icing on the cake of this album. Great use of the synths, harmonizing with one another giving it a out of this world sound with a very happy and melodic mood.

Overall this a great buy for any Trance fan out there, and even if your not a huge trance fan theres no harm in checking out this album and listening it to yourself. This album is by far one of the greatest trance albums of 2013. Yes even better than Armin’s “Intense”, as much as I love Armin this album performs way better and it stays consistent in quality and sound.

Schulz never seems to disappoint when you’re looking for soothing, steady trance music. His newest track ‘Tempted’ doesn’t fall short, with the steady trance build up and the soothing yet ear-gasmic trance-drop, Trance heads will appreciate.

The video’s not bad either!
