In a shade under two weeks, ‘The Nine Skies’ first insight will take place among San Francisco’s Dreamstate. To reduce a few of your curiosities ahead of time, Markus has unveiled a trailer for the show, which offers an attracting sight into what’s in store for Dreamstate’s Dreamers this May. You can peak behind the window for yourself here.
Markus has also grabbed the opportunity to drop a taste of his follow-up to ‘Mota-Mota’. A recording whose accurate development has taken many a month, it’s his club conversion of Kate Bush’s timeless ‘Running Up That Hill’.
From its arrival, ‘Running’ echoes the pulsing feel of the original, never losing a drop of its famously bittersweet rapture. Markus develops its hypnotic theme, slowly making to its synths from deep within in the drop and finally lifting them to meet its almost unfeasible beautiful crescendo.
Markus’ search to find exactly the right voice to do justice to his cover was nothing short of comprehensive. After many a month (and demo), that perfect search ended at the door of singer Bev Wild. A relative electronic dance music newcomer, it proved to be the crucial tipping point in the consciousness of his interpretation. Bev brings the track a vocal belief way beyond her years, diverting Kate’s inflections brilliantly and transporting every thing brutally truthfully, painfully sensual ounce of ‘Running’s song.
Ahead of its May 29 release, you can listen to a clip of Markus Schulz Feat Bev Wild’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ here.
