The story of Markus Schulz musical career keeps unfolding. New chapters were added to his impressive musical life, and they just keep on coming.
2009 was an astonishing year to the American DJ/producer. Not only did his Do You Dream trancer rock the Evolution crowd as official theme, there was also a darker side of Markus that came out: Dakota. The Thoughts Become Things album under the Dakota alias unleashed the deeper, darker proggy side of Markus, and was praised by crowds and DJs alike. On the DJ side of things, Markus travelled the world with a never fading smile on his face, rocking crowds during his Global DJ World Tour, broadcast during his Global DJ Broadcast radioshow. With residencies at Boombox and Global Gathering, the Best American DJ of 2008 and number 8 DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 was exactly where he needs to be: on top.
The first single of his forthcoming third artist album, Dark Heart Waiting, is now ready to light some souls. Released on Markus Coldharbour Recordings label on April 12th, this collaboration with vocalist Carey Stansfield (aka Khaz) of the well-known Departure formation is about to travel light and touch ground on all EDM-loving places around the globe. Dark Heart Waiting, the follow-up to previous Departure collabs Without You Near and Cause You Know, has Markus significant sound: deep and dark, but with a trancy edge. Just the way the crowd loves it.
Remix duties of Dark Heart Waiting were done by Dutch tech-trance hot-shot Jochen Miller, UK producer Paul Trainer, the Indian prog duo Lost Stories and includes a Coldharbour Dub for all those that like to rock it dubbed.
