Continuing Coldharbour’s momentous 2013 output is one of the label’s founding traditions, where Markus Schulz presents three hand picked tracks that have dominated the Global DJ Broadcast airwaves and his live sets for a consistent period, the 34th edition of Coldharbour Selections.
We start with Elevation vs. Grube & Hovsepian “Fair Winds (Original Mix)”. This mind melting track is a hands down, a great choice by Markus. “Fair Winds” is such deep track and is quite refreshing to listen to. You can close your eyes and drift away while the amazing sounds melt together seamlessly in that powerful space between your ears. Mike Targanski, Tim Grube and Mike Hovsepian have made perfection by blending all of their creative genius into this track. I played this during the final hour at my set this weekend and can say a big sound system really takes this track to the next level. The emotion it brought out of the club goers was breathtaking.
Next we dive into Ali Wilson “Angelic State (Original Mix)”. First let me say I thoroughly enjoyed the long, steady build in this track. For me the real magic happened three minutes in. The subtle drive in this track toward the end isn’t overpowering but just makes you want to move your feet. The buzzing sound throughout “Angelic State” gives this track a unique twist and makes it stand out even more. After listening to this track you will completely understand why the name is perfect, “Angelic State” takes you to heaven. This track fits perfectly into my set, so powerful and beautiful!
Last but certainly not least is Bogdan Vix “Providance (Original Mix)”. Let me start by saying, wow! From the very first second this track had my attention. The beginning drive is so hard right out of the gate and leads to a perfectly placed drop off and rebuild. The mid portion of the track gives you a feel of the first hard drive with some nostalgia added in. Then “Providance” dives right back into that killer drive which will undoubtedly grab your attention. This track is such a speaker cruncher, and it did just that when I played it. Such a great sound produced from this Bodgan Vix masterpiece.
I can say I really enjoyed integrating all of the phenomenal choices by Markus into my set this weekend. Coldharbour Selections Part 34 gets better and better every time I listen to it.
