From the bright lights and uplifting emotion of the Los Angeles tribute “Avalon,” Markus Schulz travels north of the border to conclude quarter three of his 2015 city series presentation. A city defined by its afterhours culture, and a venue he himself describes as the Cathedral – Stereo in Montreal. Stereo has been fortunate enough to experience multiple monumental open-to-close sets.
“Cathedral” marks the first official release for Markus under his pseudonym Dakota for over a year. In many aspects, it’s a throwback to his earliest compositions under the name, habitually appearing on famed Bedrock and Yoshitoshi labels.
As the largest city in Québec, Montreal is a remarkably diverse cityscape in which classic European architecture meets contemporary design. At the heart of the city lies the dramatic Notre-Dame Basilica. Hypnotic and infectious, “Cathedral” is the perfect catalyst for those of you who push the boundaries beyond the club’s peak hours, much like the jetsetting producer’s open to close sets. Press play and get ready to lose yourself.
Stay tuned for more ‘City Series’ release announcements and information on Markus’ upcoming tour dates, both solo and as New World Punx (w/ Ferry Corsten)
