Review: Fisherman & Hawkins “Oblivion”

A few months ago, I heard an incredible track played by Markus during one of his sets. I immediately fell in love with this track but had no idea at that time who was behind it. It’s not so long ago that I had finally found out it was the new track from the Venlo’s dutch duo composed by Rob Koopmans & Isaac Vissers, better known as Fisherman & Hawkins.

This track, named “Oblivion”, has been released today and the original mix is really a 6:45 piece of gold. The piano break starting after about 2 minutes is really incredible. I have goosebumps every time I hear it! But it’s just the beginning… progressively the track goes from this beautiful piano solo to a very energetic and powerful section! It’s simply perfect!

Many of the best trance artists in the industry, including names like Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Cosmic Gate are already playing this epic track, which is, as Markus Schulz said, “One of the biggest anthems of the summer, and maybe for the entire year.” Indeed, this track has everything to become, as Gouryella’s “Anahera” last year, the 2016 tune of the year!

Fisherman & Hawkins will be at the first Coldharbour Beach festival in a few weeks in the Netherlands, before they head to Canada and the USA. Do not hesitate to go to a party were they are playing, you will not regret it!

Review: Fisherman & Hawkins Feat. Sir Adrian “Never The Same”

Having cemented themselves as an established piece of the Coldharbour Recordings furniture, Fisherman & Hawkins’ trailblazing journey continues into 2016 with a new adventure, making a foray into the world of vocal trance, and aided by one of its finest exponents.

Ever since chiseled anthem “Apache” broke barriers, the Dutch duo of Isaac Vissers & Rob Koopmans has impressed worldwide attendants with the approach of melodic power and panache; becoming staple performers of the ascending Coldharbour Nights.

Fisherman & Hawkins

“Never The Same” starts off with the familiar 131 bpm of a Fisherman & Hawkins produced track along with nice slow hard-hitting mids that start to pick up with the trademark dark tuned sound that has come to be synonymous with their name.

When the breakdown of the song is reached we are in for a surprise with original vocal lyrics provided by Sir Adrian. Who lends a haunting voice that will be etched in minds for years to come as he leads the song back into a head bobbing, energy filled melody to round out the track.

Fisherman & Hawkins feat. Sir Adrian - Never The Same

The one word used to sum this song up would be shattering in the way it has combined the sound of Fisherman & Hawkins with original lyrics that has me waiting on the edge of my seat for the next lyrical track Isaac & Rob will crank out. We will without a doubt be hearing plenty of this song in the coming year in many of Coldharbour DJ sets, that will have us singing along.

“Never The Same” is available on Beatport: Fisherman & Hawkins feat. Sir Adrian – Never The Same

Lyrics to “Never The Same” by Fisherman & Hawkins Featuring Sir Adrian 

We are born into the day
A ray of light
Break of dawn inside
The echoes of the night
A trade what’s left to right,
I won’t go wrong
And from the start it won’t be long,
You are where I belong
I hear your name
Never the same
I feel the flame
Never the same

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.

End of Year Countdown 2015 Featuring Coldharbour Recordings | Tracklists and Sets

Closing out Afterhours.fm’s End of Year Countdown 2015 Day 12 was 20 hours of exclusive sets from some of our favorite Coldharbour Recordings’ artists. The highlight of the day was a 3 hour EOYC exclusive set from the Coldharbour Recordings label boss, Markus Schulz. We’ll be posting sets and tracklists as they become available, so keep checking back for updates!

From Markus Schulz:

Hello again,

My final gift to you as another year closes, and one that will hopefully turn out to be worth the copious hours of preparation.

As a thank you for inspiring and helping me throughout the various visits around the world, here is a three hour journey for Afterhours.fm’s End of Year Countdown celebrations. I’m proud to have been asked to participate in every single one since the station launched, and thankful that they ask me to provide something beyond the usual one hour for the past few occasions.

Much like a reflection of the open to close solo sets, the extended time allows the full Markus Schulz sound palette to blossom – starting deep, and building things up as we go along. A collection of some of my favorites across the genres in recent months, a few brand new IDs being debuted for the first time on radio, and a little sprinkling of classics.

Hope you enjoy the journey, and please leave your thoughts for me in the comments, I appreciate your feedback.

Have a fantastic and safe NYE celebration, a very Happy New Year for 2016, and see you for the Global DJ Broadcast Classics Showcase on Thursday January 7th.

With love,
Markus x

Review: Mr. Pit vs. Fisherman & Hawkins “Doppelbanger”

One of the most successful Romanian music producers, Mr. Pit is known for his energetic live DJ set and amazing original productions. He has remixed for some of the biggest talents in the electronic music world and has built a fantastic name for himself. Since signing with Coldharbour, this heavy hitter has taken off. Fisherman & Hawkins have been in the EDM scene for quite a while. Performing, producing and organizing events is what they have done over the past few years. Since late 2011 they decided to combine their forces on the production level and the tracks began to flow. Mr. Pit and Fisherman & Hawkins have shared many nights on stage together in the past year,  both contributing heavily to the Coldharbour Nights worldwide. Their friendship developed further with this collaboration in the studio which accents all the artists perfectly. The deep, dark and devilish, “Doppelbanger” was then born.




Right out of the gate “Doppelbanger” has a nice deep drive that lures you into the track almost immediately. The bass line used is so powerful while being subtle at the same time. About two minutes into this track the original drive softens out to a beautiful melodic creation that resonates through your ears. The notes used blend so well together it is almost indescribable. After this part of the track imprints into your brain you are brought right back into that dark drive that you’ll love. Once you finish riding that out you can’t help yourself other than to replay it again to take another journey through “Doppelbanger”.

Adrian, Isaac and Rob really outdid themselves when creating this track. Recently I incorporated “Doppelbanger” into one of my own sets and the crowd loved every second of this masterpiece as I suspected. Take a listen to the track below.

Review: Coldharbour Night LA at Avalon Hollywood

I eagerly gathered alongside hundreds of fellow trance devotees for Coldharbour Night LA last weekend at the acclaimed Avalon Hollywood. It was my first time at the venue after just recently moving to Los Angeles. For those new to the LA club scene like myself, Avalon is known as a historic monument as well as one of the best clubs in the city. Coupled with world-renowned DJs and a spacious dance floor, it’s the perfect spot for electronic music lovers to dance into the wee hours of the night – and Avalon definitely lived up to its reputation.

A little history of the label; Coldharbour Recordings was founded by Markus Schulz in 2005 and has since been at the forefront of electronic music. It represents the deep and somber sound of trance that Markus is known for. The Coldharbour roster boasts some of the best names in the industry, such as Mr. Pit, Mike EFEX and Adina Butar.

First entering Avalon, I was taken by surprise at the sheer size of it. There were multiple bars on all sides of the club to accommodate the high demand for alcoholic drinks. The live music resonated clearly throughout every corner of the building so despite which bar or chill spot you were at, you were sure not to miss a beat. The dance floor was extensive and contained hundreds of happily bouncing people. It didn’t end there. The top floor provided theatre seatings with a perfect balcony view of the entire stage and bottom floor.


Starting the night off, I grabbed a pricey shot of tequila from an inhospitable bartender. I decided to join the dance floor right as Grube & Hovsepian were hitting the decks. The dynamic duo started us off with a low-key progressive set with well dispersed drops. A gradual but perfect beginning to the night.


Next up was the Queen of Coldharbour – Nifra. The energy and the crowd quickly grew as she made her appearance on stage. Her presence was strong but humble. She dropped favored remixes of her own such as Rampage and Erase You, but also mixing in mainstream hits such as Outside by Calvin Harris.


The night quickly shifted when one half of Fisherman & Hawkins, aka Isaac Vissers, took over the decks. He opened with one of my favorite tracks from Markus, Nothing Without Me.


Last but not least, M.I.K.E Push, also known by the aliases Push or Plastic Boy, closed out the night at 4 am. He played a selection of sinister tracks and captivating melodies including Juno, a track on which he collaborated with Rank 1, and Replicant by Sean & Xander, which is the first track released under M.I.K.E. Push Studio, his new Coldharbour Recordings sub label.

Overall, the experience was unique in that all of the artists worked in musical harmony. Despite their individual talents, the five DJs came together and unified the club for an unforgettable night. Additionally, the visuals integrated perfectly with the music. Gogo dancers surrounded the dance floor. Co2 blasters synchronized to drops in the music. Intense lasers and glowing neon graphics lit the entire room. The environment of Avalon Hollywood complemented the music making for another successful Coldharbour Recordings Night.

Interview: Getting to Know Fisherman & Hawkins, From Hardstyle to Trance

I don’t remember the first time I heard the hypnotizing synth and heart thumping bassline of Fisherman & Hawkins’ “Apache”, but I will say that I feel in love with their sounds from that moment on. Being an avid listener to the harder style of trance, Fisherman & Hawkins’ music was like bread and butter to my ears from the very first moment on. Even today when I would hear the slow but hard progressive beginning of a Fisherman & Hawkins’ song at a show, I will burst in excitement and jump up and down, all around the dance floor.

Isaac Vissers and Rob Koopmans are the two gents from Venlo, Southern Netherlands, behind the name Fisherman & Hawkins. I got an opportunity to send these two some questions to get to know them a little better.



How did you two meet? And how would you describe your relationship? Is it like two bros chilling producing music, or more like the ‘Odd Couple’?

We actually met for about 10 years ago or something. We both went to the same parties all the time at Perron55 in our hometown, a club that is now closed since late 2014. It didn’t matter if it was techno, trance or any other dance genre. Most of the times we were both there with friends and as you know, music connects people. We were both DJs already in that time. I (Isaac) played progressive and trance and Rob played tech house and techno. We both share the same kind of humor so a good friendship was born right away haha.

How did it feel like when Fisherman & Hawkins started to get noticed after the success of “Apache”? Did it feel like Fisherman & Hawkins as a trance name has made it big or is there still a lot more room for exposure?

The success of that track was kinda unexpected to be honest. Although we have to say that the melody was so addictive when we played it in the studio, we couldn’t get it out of our heads for days. And as soon as such things happen you just know it’s something special. When we got a reply from Markus, after sending it to Coldharbour Recordings, saying he absolutely loved it, we still didn’t know what to expect until all the madness started when he played it as an ID for months in his sets. The reactions were huge and everyone wanted to know what it was haha. After its release it was crazy to see how many A list DJs played it out, even today the track does the job when Markus or Armin drops it somewhere. Really overwhelming to see that.

What drives you as a DJ/pushes you to play the songs you play and produce the music you do? What kind of feelings do you get when you play a gig? Is there a difference when you play for a packed club? Or how about a half filled club but filled with fans of Fisherman & Hawkins?

We love to make and play energetic pounding tracks. Maybe because we are already DJs for about 15 years and attending parties ever since then makes us understand what kind of grooves and melodies could work on the dancefloor, I don’t know. In the past we went to hardstyle, hardcore, hardtrance, techno, trance and house parties and you might say you can hear all these influences in our music too.

Of course it’s always nice to play in a packed club, especially if the crowd is already warmed up and ready for yet another adventure of slamming beats. But we also love to play open to close sets as well where you can see the audience coming into the club and slowly getting into a certain vibe. On those nights we play a lot of different stuff and like to play deep progressive and techno tracks too. Taking the crowd on a journey is so much fun as you have all the time to build things up and bring everything to one big climax.

I know that making art, especially music, is difficult, but how does the magical music happen? Does one of you guys create a beat or an idea and send it to one another? Or do you two have to be in the same room so that your music can manifest and grow?

I (Isaac) make most of the ideas like the melodies, chords, grooves, etc and every now and then Rob joins me in the studio and has fresh new ideas about how to get the best out of certain things. After we have made all the basics we sit down with a good friend of us and build the entire arrangement of the track. This is the moment where the magic happens.

I just listened to your guys opening set for Ferry Corsten, it was much more uplifting than your past ASOT set or your Coldharbour Night sets. How do you two decide on what type of music to play? Does country or different region of a state/country have a particular role in this track selection?

Funny you noticed this haha. In a way you are right, that set is slightly different from what we usually play. But as we had to play right before Ferry Corsten, who was the headliner that night in Grenswerk we felt it wouldn’t be the right place to play as aggressive as we normally do. For that reason we played a little bit more uplifting or proggy, and we actually loved it. It was perfect for that night. We even had the chance to record it and the set blew up when we uploaded it later on our soundcloud page.

I saw that in an interview, you two have some roots or interest in hardstyle and hardcore before settling into trance with Coldharbour label boss, Markus Schulz. Is there some chance the Fisherman & Hawkins sound might have a shift to some harder and darker side of electronic music? Perhaps under a different alias?

Haha yes that’s true. We both have a history with hardstyle and hardcore. Especially hardstyle is a style we were both completely in to from 2000 till 2003 or so. If you listen to Qlimax compilations from that time, especially the ones from Dana (early 2001) and Pavo (late 2001) you can hear a lot of darker sounds but always with a special vibe in it. Hardstyle or hardhouse/hardtrance, whatever you wanna call it, was totally different back in the day. Almost every track had a unique sound, a unique kick, bass or loop. It was fresh and mindblowing. But after 2002, hardstyle began to sound like slow hardcore and we started to get bored of it all. So, we enjoyed those times but I don’t think we will re-enter that specific genre any time soon haha.

How do you find tracks for your podcast? Since there are two of you, who has the final say in Fisherman & Hawkins?

We both download and gather all the tracks we like that enter our promo inbox. And of course we also check Beatport every week to see what we’ve missed ourselves haha. As you might know we like to start our radio show with a deep vibe and we build up the tempo halfway during the show. The radio show is a perfect platform to play what we love and gives us the chance to play some tracks we normally don’t get to play out during peak time sets because of the style.

I got to say, I love the track “Skypunch” and “Underworld”. Are there any new tracks from Fisherman & Hawkins in the works that fans can look forward to in the coming months? Should we expect some stuff that might be a little different?

Well thank you. Of course you can expect a brand new single real soon that is in that same fist pumping style. As well as a remix we did of a track we were super excited and honored for when we received the request. Besides this we are also working on a couple of vocal tracks that will absolutely blow your mind haha.

Since festival season is rapidly approaching us, is there any big festival you would like to play at or will be playing?

On July 19th we will play at Harbour On The Beach at Beachclub in Montreal, Canada. When you see the complete line-up filled with Coldharbour artists you just know it’s going to be a mental ride with lots of hands in the air.

We also just announced that we will be playing on Ibiza for the first time this year. Markus Schulz invited us to join him at the amazing Privilege this year together with our good friends Nifra and Mr. Pit. No doubt that night is going to be one for the books.

What’s your guys’ favorite/most embarrassing moment as Fisherman & Hawkins?

Most favorite moment is definitely playing at the legendary Club Space in Miami earlier this year. Sharing the stage with Markus Schulz and all the other Coldharbour friends was an experience we will never forget. And of course our set at ASOT650 last year is unforgettable too. So many great artists were there at the same time. Amazing night.

So far no embarrassing moments that we can share, maybe if you’d ask us again in a few years we can give you some haha.

What are some things you two do to take your mind off music? I see that on your Facebook, you used one of Jimmy Tatro’s videos about missing the beat to promote the “United” single release. Quite funny. Your Twitter also has some funny memes. So is it safe to say that when you guys aren’t making music or playing a show, you like to troll the internet for some giggles?

We both like to entertain. Wether it’s with music or with humor. Both are important pieces in life and can’t be missed. While Rob enjoys a good sports game every now and then I (Isaac) take my mind off from music by enjoying some spare time with my kids. They can suck out a lot of energy from time to time but so can sports haha. Let’s just say it keeps you young, right? 😉

Outside of trance, what kind of music do you listen to? Is there anything you listen to that isn’t part of the electronic genre?

Of course! We like all kinds of music. From Coldplay to London Grammar and from the Foo Fighters to our very own Dutch rock band Kensington. As long as it’s catchy and euphoric we are into it.


These two gents sound like a fun bunch. Not only do they mean business, but they also have time to play. I can’t wait to hear what fist pumping sound these two will produce in the near future. Whatever it is, I’m sure they will still continue to carry the same aesthetics that makes them Fisherman & Hawkins and a Coldharbour favorite.

Coldharbour Partners With Black Hole

Directly from www.coldharbourrecordings.com:

Spanning 200 releases over the past decade, IDMA-nominated Coldharbour Recordings has captured the hearts and imagination of many fans within the electronica domain. And its storied tale undertakes a new chapter beginning in 2015 – joining the family at Black Hole distribution.

The label, founded by DJ Times & Pioneer America’s Best DJ for 2014, Markus Schulz, has been heralded for its quality of releases through various genres, combined with the talent contained by its roster depth. Along with being the home of the Miami native’s appraised singles (the latest being the incredible Winter Kills Me featuring Lady V), talents such as KhoMha, Grube & Hovsepian, Nifra, M.I.K.E. Push, Mr. Pit and Rex Mundi continue to prominently feature in the playlists of many top-tiered DJs.

Black Hole Recordings, already housing Markus’ New World Punx Music label alongside Ferry Corsten, boasts a rich history of success and adulation in our scene. Their strategy and efforts will further increase Coldharbour’s continued development, with more label event nights coming than ever before.

The partnership begins in January, and among the first releases is the anthemic Skypunch by Dutch duo Fisherman & Hawkins. This will be complimented with EPs from Danilo Ercole and Solid Stone, and the centrepiece of the label will focus on Markus’ exciting project spanning the entire year – dedicating a new production each and every month to a particular city of inspiration.

This is bound to be nothing short of amazing.

Upcoming releases:

January 19: Markus Schulz – Bayfront (Miami)
January 26: Fisherman & Hawkins – Skypunch
February 09: Markus Schulz Pres. Coldharbour Selections: Part 38
