Bittersweet Nightshade (Original Mix)
Bittersweet Nightshade (Markus Schulz Return To Coldharbour Remix)
Regarded as one of the most talented producers in all of trance, Mike Foyle returns under his Statica alias for the first time in almost 4 years, with the aptly titled “Bittersweet Nightshade”.
With a unique and mezmerising melody guaranteed to give any listener chills down their spine, the original was identified as one of the standout tracks from Armin van Buuren’s recent A State Of Trance 2008 compilation. Receiving further plays on A State Of Trance, Trance Around The WOrld and Markus’ own Global DJ Broadcast brought futher attention, including picking up the accolade of Global Selection winner.
Markus Schulz admired the track so much when he signed it, that he decided to take on the mantle of remixing duties. Returning to his Coldharbour roots that helped him break through, his remix features a beautiful supplimental melody to the original, and a pounding bassline built for maximum effect on a big soundsystem.
Having debuted the remix on the night of the DJ Mag Awards Party at Ministry of Sound in London, Markus held back on debuting his remix to the listening audience worldwide, until his recent and much heralded appearance on the Essential Mix. The reaction was unanimous, with many citing it as Schulz’s best work in years.
With two equally outstanding mixes to choose from, Coldharbour Recordings closes its doors in 2008 with a bang. The future already looks exciting.
