The uplifting, heavy percussion – something fresh and new this way comes. Going by the name Mota-Mota, its deeper bass frequencies underpin prowling rhythms, cut with truculent synths, which are spliced in turn with ethereally warped hunting horns.
It's a psytrance track, that is the most out-and-out techno Dakota’s dealt in eight straight years. Mota-Mota is the first substance to surface from his 2017 The Nine Skies project. It sees Markus in production alliance with Dutch producer Koen Groeneveld (the man behind ‘Slides’, ‘1981’, ‘Baksteen’ and Spinnin Record’s techno imprint Abzolut). A transonic ride to the dark side, a postcard from the musical edge. The first four minutes will amp you up until it releases the drop that will blow you right off your feet.
This month, Markus Schulz will be spinning on the 22nd Coldharbour Night at Club Space and playing an open-till-close set at Heart on the 26th. He's debuting his new Dakota show ’The Nine Skies’ in late spring and the first track from the project just been released. In April, there’ll also be the release of the expanded edition of ‘Watch The World’.
