Track Review: "Sestertius" by Markus Schulz (Coldharbour Recordings 250th Release)
First and foremost, congratulations Markus Schulz and Coldharbour Recordings on the milestone of your 250th release! The labor of love it takes to maintain a label as well as produce amazing tracks on a continuous basis is phenomenal. Despite the claims that trance music is making a comeback, most astute to the genre believe it has never left. However, with the United State's music industry grasping on to Electronic Dance Music as a whole, it's nice to see more people educating themselves on the many sub-genres.
The connection of Trance to Classical seems to attract those who are looking for more depth within music than just beats and flare. The layering of melodies with addictive beats and drops allows us to dance and dream. Thus, "Sestertius" as this milestone release for the label works perfectly. The build up from the beginning of the track instantly grabs your attention. Then the melodies take a hold of all of your senses, and you can't help but draw parallels with the theme of the Unicorn Slayer's latest album 'Watch the World'. It did not require the artwork to come to this conclusion.
Please take a listen to this track here, then BUY it on Monday August 29th!
