REVIEW: Markus Schulz - The Lost Oracle [Transmission 2016 Theme] out on Coldharbour

It stands as Europe’s leading indoor event dedicated to trance music. Once again this October, all roads lead to Prague for the spectacle (and decade-reaching milestone) that is Transmission. Throughout its 10 year journey, Markus Schulz has been pivotal every crucial step of the way. 

As well as becoming the premier ambassador for Transmission on the international stage, Markus’ contributions go beyond simply the DJ performance. Through the creation of another breathtaking Transmission anthem, his production talents are equally under the spotlight.

Marking the occasion for 2016 is ‘The Lost Oracle’, is inspired by the times of ancient Greece and the discovery of innocence. Melancholic and uplifting in equal measures, this is an anthem that is sure to inspire beyond the confines of Prague, and beyond the October 28th and 29th Transmission weekend. 

But for the extravaganza itself, the #trancefamily members will be part of something unforgettable, and ‘The Lost Oracle’ will provide a fitting, lasting musical tale for their memories.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]It is always such a big challenge to do the theme of a particular event as the producer is invited to capture the specific event in his production. Markus Schulz of course is a real trance genius and when it comes on themes for big parties he seems extremely able to deliver great results. His Lost Oracle theme is a powerful energetic trancer with classic trance references all over it. Driving pulsating basslines, pounding rolling drums and of course main breakdown with cinematic sounds, magical atmosphere, melodramatic strings and of course the ethnic vocals that seems to represent the reference to the Lost Oracle. Magical piano melody and great traditional instruments lead to the big build up that take us all the way to the euphoric hands in the air climax. Inspirational music that rather than going to the easy gratification way chooses to go deeper and give a true sonic experience for nearly 8 minutes. #PureGold Love It[/content]
