Review: Markus Schulz “Golden Gate (San Francisco)”

San Francisco is the third city to be a part of the Markus Schulz’s City Series compilation. “Golden Gate” is the title of the track dedicated to the beautiful city of San Francisco- which holds a rich history of love, progress, and the keys to the future as tech geniuses continues to innovate the world and its technologies.

Following its predecessor “Bine Facut,” “Golden Gate” holds its own with a different and unique sound that is equivalent to “The City” of San Francisco. The track starts off with your classic Markus kick drums to invoke an energy and then it drops you into a soothing melody that lifts you up and down, ride after ride of euphoric feels. Its symmetric pounding basslines accompanied with a relaxing synth provides the right amount of groove for a groovy San Francisco.

As the track vibrates through my ears, I can’t help but picture myself flying down Market St. and up through Chinatown, across North Beach and the historical Fishermen’s Wharf and above the Golden Gate Bridge, then reaching the final destination of our Golden Gate tour, Ruby Skye: a prominent club Markus has spun at many times.

The combination of the house beats blended with elements of trance is of perfect balance. When Markus first debut this track in late March at Ruby Skye, I couldn’t help but be transported through time; relieving my memories of all the past times I’ve been able to witness Markus Schulz live at the iconic venue.
If “Bine Facut” translates into ‘well done,’ then “Golden Gate” must translate into ‘love’ …because that is what I feel when I hear his San Francisco tune.
