There are many accomplishments within Markus Schulz's career, which have cemented his legacy in the electronic world.

Pick up Markus Schulz - Sestertius via Beatport here 

Coldharbour Recordings is immensely proud to have reached a special milestone - the 250th release - and in continuing the tradition with previous significant label numbers, the Miami native takes responsibility to mark the occasion, with the aptly titled Sestertius - the Latin term for 'two and one half'. 

Following the release of his acclaimed songwriting-based Watch the World album, Markus turned his talent to instrumental work, and his ability to yield an unforgettable soul touching melody is paramount again with Sestertius. A composition, which has lit up the settings of Transmission in Australia, Electric Daisy Carnival in England, Ultra Europe in Croatia and Nature One in Germany among others, it is an anthem fitting for the occasion, and one for the worldwide trancefamily to embrace.

We hope you enjoy Coldharbour Recordings release 250, here's to 250 more.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most influential and highly creative individual is Markus Schulz who have managed to capture the hearts of millions of trance lovers and with his label  he manage to establish his own sound that  thousands of producers around the world try to imitate and follow his path. His track Sestertius celebrate in the most vocal and upfront way the legacy of Coldharbour. Very energetic and highly melodic journey of pulsating driving basslines, pounding techy rolling drums, electronic melodies and superb breakdown with orchestral breakdown and cinematic sounds that create the majestic experience that immerse you in his world. The main synthy hook  has the word epic and anthemic written all over it. You have the feeling that you have heard it before but Markus has manage to add his own twist and turn it into an explosive bulldozer size theme that will awake your senses. Bright sounds to uplift you from the everyday and the mundane. #PureGold Love It[/content]
