REVIEW: Various Artists - Markus Schulz Presents: Coldharbour Selections Part 41

Arriving on cue for the summer midpoint, Markus Schulz delves into the selection of Global DJ Broadcast tried and tested fan favorites for the latest installment of his Coldharbour Selections series.

Just one original production out of the three on offer, but it has been an essential for the Miami native since early spring, as Los Angeles talent Mike EFEX teams with Seattle duo Sean & Xander for Brainstorm. Fusing Mike's unforgiving tech basslines with Sean & Xander's knack for the right melody, the track is ideal material to ascend the energy within a liveset.

Complimenting Brainstorm is a pair of remixes, both of label favorites over the past 12 months. Jordan Suckley's remix of Markus Schulz's Bombay (Mumbai) for the City Series Collection gets converted to the VASSY led vocal piece Tomorrow Never Dies, and Kris O'Neil provides a melodic yet groovy touch to Omair Mirza & Avari's infectious Perfect Imperfection.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The very successful  series Coldharbour Selections reached its 41 part and now is the time for 3 must have beauties. First of all is Jordan Suckley's remix of the vocal number Tomorrow Never Dies with the well-known electronic music diva Vassy on vocals.Energetic ultra pumping with headspinning euphoric synths and solid composition makes this remix the perfect vocal uplifting monster you were waiting for. Banging, booming, emotional and ready for the peak time spot. Next is Mike EFEX vs. Sean & Xander with the so incredible Brainstorm. Dark techy moody grooves, pulsating energetic basslines and understated euphoric synths make your mind go wild and you are certainly freaked out in seconds. Lastly the always on the right spot Kris O Niel delivers the exciting remix on  Omair Mirza featuring Avari with the Perfect Imperfection. Kris has his own style and as it seems sounds perfect for Coldharbour sound as well. Melodic balearic proglifting trance packed with anthemic strings, uplifting feel good synths and the excellent glowing vocals by Avari with the so strange and evocative lyrics about our perfect imperfections. #PureGold Love it[/content]
