    Markus Schulz is a true pioneer in every sense of the word. When approached to compile and mix this compilation his first

    thoughts were not of which tracks he should use, but rather who he should work with to create something completely new and

    refreshing. Having asked artists he knows and admires to contribute, co-produce, and remix exclusively, this double cd you hold in

    your hands is indeed new and refreshing; including new exclusive tracks, as well as some otherwise unheard remixes of some of your

    favorites.

     

    There is no particular style or label for this music. So many people like their music labeled, like nice little packages tied up

    with bows ready for you to pick up and open. Not this. This is new. This is something created out of love, a love for the music

    that was kindled many years ago when as a child Markus went with his 4th grade class to visit a radio station in Germany . A love

    for music that has evolved and grown over years. Years of triumph and heartbreak, years of travel with delayed flights and lost

    record boxes, years of creating and hard work. And moves from his birthplace in Germany to Boston, to Arizona, back across the

    Atlantic to London and now to his home in Miami. The music on these discs is all a product of this change, an evolution if you

    will.

     

    While throughout his life, Markus has traveled extensively; his true home is in the studio, where he creates with his mind, body

    and soul. This cd is named for the place that has influenced him the greatest, providing him with the inspiration to allow his

    style and sound to evolve. Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, London. The place where Markus called home for two years, literally

    eating, sleeping and working in his small studio space, where he dared to challenge the norm, and laid the foundation of a new

    style and sound all his own.

     

    As mentioned before, this CD consists of exclusive tracks and remixes, provided by some of Markusâ„¢s most admired artists. From the

    opening sequence by Christian Rusch, whom Markus contacted as soon as the plans were laid for this cd to the final track by George

    Hales that took over 3 months to perfect. Markus is a long time admirer of Christianâ„¢s composition skills, Christians beautiful

    track šNumb› can be summed up in one word šbliss›. The second track is another track made exclusively for Markus, NYC duo of Filo

    and Peri, who have racked up many hours online chatting about everything from engineering technique to Domâ„¢s failed NBA career.

    Their massive hit Under The Sun is also included with a special intro mix. The Pinkbox Special guys from Texas (Peter Martin and

    Derek Howel) who first sent Markus a 12-minute long version of šSimple› and so graciously changed the arrangement and re-mastered

    it for the cd. And of Course the massive track šPerfect Wave› that Markus first started playing out this past summer. San Mehat,

    a Montreal nightclub owner, whos passion for music is so great that he has his own studio, churning out dark melodic numbers that

    are the perfect soundtrack for reflecting. Ironically, Sanâ„¢s club is known for playing tribal Circuit House. Perry Oâ„¢Neil who

    Markus was first introduced to with his massive progger Kubik, and his collaboration with Robert Nickson who Markus meet when they

    both remixed Karada™s šLast Flight› for Lost Language. Perry is also featured with his incredible unreleased dub of šAs The Rush

    Comes›, Ozgur Can™s šSometimes› that proves that you don™t need to have racks and racks of studio gear. You just need to have

    passion and an ear for sound. Mark Otten who™s track šMushroom Therapy› inspired many successful days and nights where Markus was

    previously just staring at an empty computer screen with just a kick drum going. It was a no brainer for Markus when he first

    heard Armin play šTranquility› as his opening tune at their gig at Level in Miami, to call up Maykel at Armada and offer to remix

    it. Airwave, who™s track šWhen things go wrong› still travels around in Markus™s record box is another big inspiration for

    Markus. Remixing Lady Blue for the Airwave™s release on Bonzai was a labour of Love. Miro™s šRight by Your Side›, which was one

    of the remixes to originally come out of Markusâ„¢s Brixton studio, now with a new remix by Sonorous. Thomas Penton, whoâ„¢s

    engineering skills Markus has admired for years. Markus made sure to contact Thomas and fed him music that was the inspiration

    for this cd and asked Thomas to make him something exclusively with him in mind. The outcome was this massive stormer Dominica.

    And Andrew K who contacted Markus with a track that he was about to release himself. A track with a simple kick and bassline and

    a murky lead. But Markus hears music like very few people do. Markus and Andrew K spent many hours online collaborating, making

    changes to give it the Coldharbour vibe. When it was ready, Andrew sent the individual audio tracks to Markus who then perfected

    the mix. The outcome is a track that so massive, that when played to a fellow DJ friend, they thought it was a new track by

    šFluke›. Austin Leeds brought the original version of šFusing Love› by Markus™s studio for a quick listen and together Austin and

    Markus decided to make a special remix for Markus™s CD. šAutumn›, by George Hales, which was probably the track that went

    through the most scrutiny on the cd. A track that Markus heard about 3 months before the production of the cd was to be finished.

    A track that Alucard must have updated and tweaked for Markus 20 times. When finally Alucard just uploaded all of the individual

    tracks to Markus. A track that Markus then took and tailored to fit as the last song on the cd. A song that literally was

    finished in between a break between production of CD 1 and CD 2. Andainâ„¢s Beautiful things, which was made exclusively for this

    cd. Markus, Josh and Dave have become good friends and Markusâ„¢s Cd would not have been properly represented without the G&D stamp

    on it. And of course the massive meeting of minds that collaborated on Clear Blue. What started as a short clip of music that

    was sent to Markus by a 16 year old wunderkind from Detroit, to the eventual massive version that was canned by almost every major

    DJ months before its release, to the now full on vocal Coldharbour mix featuring the amazing vocals of Justine Suissa, who Markus

    first came in contact with through his remix of Oceanlab™s šSatellite›, which is also included on this cd.

     

    This CD represents everything that is Coldharbour. Fasten your seatbelts, we are cleared for takeoff!
