REVIEW: Markus Schulz & Emma Hewitt - Safe From Harm on Coldharbour Recordings

‘Safe From Harm’ has Markus Schulz  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. 

‘Safe From Harm’ represents the first of five recordings, which collectively will comprise Markus’ new-season-embracing ‘In Bloom’ EP’. 

A release counterpart to his now annual Global DJ Broadcast In Bloom special, the show is one of his four yearly concept mixes. Alongside the Sunrise, Afterdark and Classics Showcases, each channels the vibe and divines the essence of the prevailing season. Spring’s In Bloom’s broadcast places the focus exclusively on vocal trance, while the EP tightens the emphasis again, zeroing in on the talents of female electronic music singers & songwriters. 

Essential spring listening, the Global DJ Broadcast’s In Bloom special aired Thursday April 19th, with the full EP out now.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"] Markus Schulz has talked to us in our ADE interview about his In Bloom EP that is finally out and it includes the single with Emma Hewitt called Safe From Harm. His first ever collaboration with the Australian goddess of trance is a classic in the making. Superb thumping drums, big pulsating synths, epic strings and anthemic hands in the air synths merged with emotional romantic piano chords in the breakdown that sounds like the perfect accomplishment with Emma's deep soulful engaging and absolutely captivating voice! Truly beautiful and perfect for spring and summer festivals. #PureGold Love it[/content]
