Placing the spotlight on song-centric trance, Markus Schulz unveils the first track from his new capsule project.
‘Safe From Harm’ has him on a first time studio-connect with Australia’s Emma Hewitt – a singer/songwriter who has vocally defined the music of many a producer, Chris Lake, Tiësto, Dash Berlin and Cosmic Gate included. ‘Safe’ intuitively finds the equilibrium between Emma’s resolute vocals & heart-on-sleeve lyrics and the diffused piano & more vertically inclined synths of Markus’ rapturous production.
Having previously left crater-sized impressions on clubfloors with their ‘Hijacker’ and ‘Wilma’ team-ups, this particular twosome already have an impressive track record together.
We are of course talking the perfectly Damaged duo of Jordan Suckley and Sam Jones, who get VANDIT’s April underway with ‘Pursuit’. With expedited beats, furiously hissing hi-hats, staccato percussion and whip-crackin’ FX, the track shifts into fifth in no time at all. A tempo less measured in bpm and more in bhp, it sends wild stabs, crowd inciting pitch-bends and shunting bass roaring through its cylinders.
In both solo and co-op form, Richard Lowe’s been a production presence on VANDIT‘s skyline for some time now. Through outings like ‘Levitate’ and his ‘Our Day’ & ‘March Skies’ team-ups with David Forbes, floor-side he’s been a rainmaker to some big, BIG club moments. Having written her own compositions from her single digit years, Suzanne Chesterton caught the musical bug even earlier. It took the meeting of these two likeminds for her first release to be fully realised though.
