REVIEW: Markus Schulz & JES - Calling For Love out on Coldharbour Recordings

Having just last month brought floors to full roar through the Emma Hewitt-sung 'Safe From Harm', Markus Schulz is poised with another epic first-time team-up.

This time Markus x JES is the equation, and if you're wondering how that's never have happened before, well the queue forms to the left! Analysis is now academic as two of trance's greats bridge the studio/song gap with the soul-stirringly moving 'Calling For Love'.

In its all-day- play radio version, first contact with 'Calling' came through April's interlinked 'In Bloom EP' and GDJB show. For it's standalone release, Markus has club-equipped the Extended Mix with all the necessaries to see it reign equally at night. Tapping the tempo gas, 'Calling's production's been galvanized by hardier drums, hastening snares, percussive march and - in its latter stages - synth-radiance. By turns strong, optimistic, defiant, wrought and lamenting, JES' song is a swirl of contending emotions, lyrically & vocally encapsulating her theme.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Markus Schulz & JES collaborate for the awesome Calling For Love as part of the In Bloom EP. The long awaited and highly anticipated club mix is out and we must confess that is brilliant once again. More than 9 minutes of big room driving proglifting trance with chunky grooves, thumping pulsating basslines and superb piano chords along with warm strings leading on the breakdown that my beloved JES singing her stunning lyric that is impossible not to be touched from them. The huge synths are coming to the surface in true Balearic euphoric Ibiza friendly style that definitely summer club and festival crowds will adore. Absolutely outstanding production that shines without doubts. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
