Out on February 16th, via Coldharbour Recordings.
Last month, Markus Schulz transported us to South Beach’s sexy “Bayfront (Miami)”. For February’s installment of Schulz’s ambitious “City Series” concept, he teams up with Tom Boxer to descend upon a city rich in art, architecture, and culture. This time, the Romanian capital of Bucharest is under focus, with its track titled “Bine Făcut” which translates to ‘well done’.
As one of the phoenix cities of the dance music industry, “Bine Făcut (Bucharest)” explores its deep historical heritage. Teaming up with well-respected Romanian producer, Tom Boxer, the single combines an interestingly brooding melody with sinister basslines for a maximum dance-floor effect.
A recent stay in the Romanian capital for America’s Best DJ 2014, Markus Schulz, coincided with the country’s recent presidential elections, sparking scenes of jubilation amongst the residents. Whilst walking the streets and soaking up the feelings of hope and desire for strong bonds and relations, the events acted as an inspirational catalyst for Markus; sensing an emotion of achievement and accomplishment by the natives, an aspect he felt important to spread to a worldwide audience through his musical vision. Some 24 hours later, he found himself in the studio with Boxer procuring a sound profound enough to encapsulate the country’s developments, intertwined with memorable gigs throughout the years.
“Bine Făcut (Bucharest)” follows the first release from the “City Series,” entitled “Bayfront (Miami).” For the past eight years Markus has created a mix compilation and dedicated it to one city that inspired him that year. He mixes things up this year with his “City Series” which will see a new track each month that’s dedicated to a city that he’ll be playing at during that month. Schulz will record elements of the live show and utilize sounds of the venue to complete the forthcoming compilation titled Markus Schulz World Tour 2015.
