Markus Schulz & HALIENE – Death of a StarRelease date: 2024-01-19
Markus Schulz‘s friendship with acclaimed lyricist HALIENE has been exemplified through a string of collaborations in recent years; all carrying a stirring emotion based on their respective life experiences.
The opening extract of Schulz’s The Rabbit Hole Circus album sees them in tandem again for Death of a Star; typifying a pensively constructed feeling, but away from their previously traditional uplifting trance domain.
A career based on a broad palette of sound across the electronic spectrum, The Rabbit Hole Circus facilitated Schulz’s desire to bare his introverted vision, and Death of a Star bristled HALIENE‘s angelic tones among layers of lusciously sparkling melodies.
Straddling boundaries of trance, progressive and melodic house & techno, Death of a Star may rank among the Markus Schulz–HALIENE bond’s most impressive yet.
