Markus Schulz & BT – I Need LoveRelease date: 2019-07-26
Some artistic unions are really only a matter of time. As is the case with the first in-studio teaming between stylistically adventurous producer, songwriter & turntable titan Markus Schulz and composer, singer and all round high-achieving musical polymath, BT!
Over the last few months both Markus & BT have been in the coproduction zone, not least with the debut paring of Schulz & ATB on ‘Heartbeat’ and the Transeau x Corsten link-up ‘1997’. This month their production roads converge on one shared opus – the result of which is the almighty ‘I Need Love’.
The track naturally is every bit the sum of its artists’ parts, but further – as the 350th release on Coldharbour Recordings’ – is a dual landmark for Markus. ‘I Need Love’ sees both producers working the studio controls and additional sees BT owning its moving vocal quarter.
Setting the track’s framework up a storm, the pair contrast the march of its drums and percussive skip with the moodily prowling presence of its intro riffs. With keener balance still, BT’s from-within lyrics & expressive vocals penetrate soul-deep, whilst drop-side Markus counterweights the pathos with the glorious chime of his mainline.
Given its righteous debut in the last days of June at Luminosity Beach, you can feel the big love for ‘I Need Love’ here: http://coldharbour.complete.me/ineedlove. Coldharbour’s 350th will drop onto streaming platforms and downloads stores on July 26.
