Review: Markus Schulz and Fisherman & Hawkins “Gotham Serenade”

Anyone that happens to be a fan of Markus Schulz is certainly familiar with his city series concept in which he would dedicate an album to the city that impressed him the most over the year. In 2015 he decided to take things to the next level by constructing a track for each city that left its mark on him. It started with “Bayfront (Miami)” and followed with “Bine Facut (Bucharest)” together with Tom Boxer, “Golden Gate (San Francisco)”, “This Generation (Indio)”, “Bombay (Mumbai)”, “Lost in the Box (London)”, “Daybreak” (Boom)”, “Avalon (Los Angeles)”, “Cathedral (Montreal)”, “Dancing in the Red Light (Amsterdam)” and “The Creation (Prague)” along with Nifra.

It all ends with the final chapter of this endeavor which is dedicated to the grand city of New York. He is not alone in this creation and has enlisted Dutch hyper duo Fisherman and Hawkins who have also produced heavyweight anthems of their own over the past years. We embark on a tough and aggressive stroll through the bustling and crowd filled streets of New York. Markus and the guys are masters at serenading us with a distinguished variety of high-powered vibes and emotional, vibrant soundscapes that perfectly represent the city that never sleeps. Haunting melodies, anthemic leads and darkness seeping in through every inch of this are to be expected. Majestic, regal and cutting edge like the metropolis itself there is no stopping the tendency to move. Every muscle in our body urges us to get up and sway to the beat while feeling the rush of this vibrant, living breathing city.
