What I have noticed with the past few occasions being there is that the crowd for Markus' gigs at MOS has been steadily growing, which is a really good sign. I love the venue, it has to rank up there as one of the best clubs worldwide. The soundsystem is just made for Markus' unique sound.
Despite only playing a 2 hour set, it was a very enjoyable ride Markus put on. It went by so quickly, which was the only disappointing part really. I don't want to reveal too much of the tracklist that he played, out of respect for the preparations he is making for today's GDJB World Tour recording from Budapest, but there were some moments that really could not be ignored.
The stand out - a brand new remix of The New World, and to be honest, the only justifiable way of describing it is that it was absolutely out of this world!
My personal highlights of the set were:
The new remix of The New World
The remixes of Airwave and Perception - I swear, the sight of seeing the entire mainroom dancefloor uplift in a sea of arms during the breaks was nothing short of breathtaking. It was a real goosebump moment.
Stoneface & Terminal - Blueprint (Club Mix)
Sia - Buttons (Markus Schulz Return To Coldharbour Dub)
I really enjoyed the company of the great people of this forum who were there. To Hayley and her dad, Rick and Lydia, Danny and of course Monika who flew from afar, thank you for making it a wonderful night. But the biggest thanks of all has to go to Markus himself, for spending so much time after his set hanging out, sharing laughs and having good times.
Time to board, so apologies for the short review.
The legacy of the Markus Schulz Ministry of Sound Residency continues. And after his latest performance, it is in a very healthy state indeed.
Cool, Hope there are some pictures and video of this event. :)
Wow Darren, I'll bet you were tired when you were writing that review :D
It's Sunday now, coming up to 3 hours since Ministry closed up and I'm only just awake after a marathon sleep. I arrived in London about 7pm and went walking around to kill some time. I got something to eat and saw Big Ben and the London Eye and all the other things touristy folks do who've never been to London. I met up with Hayley, her dad Paul and Monika just up the road from The Gallery. We headed in and were hangin around inside when Rick showed up. Shortly after than Alex/xander came over and introduced himself to us all, so there was a bit of a crowd of us when we headed into the box.
I have to say I found the warning signs funny, but when I heard the bass I kinda wished I'd bought some earplugs, it was just sooo powerful - even the hair on my head (the tiny amount) and my clothes were moving, you just couldn't escape it. The first DJ, Matt von Holtz did a great job warming us up and when Markus came on we all moved forward to the stage. Darren had made a last minute trip from Ireland himself so it was great to see him there too.
From the first track to the last I was just loving evey minute of it. From climbin up those steep steps to the Access All Area's gate at the DJ Booth trying to get pictures and videos, to takin videos from the main dance floor during the remix of Airwave, Dyor's Big Room remix of You and the absolutely fantastic remix of The New World, everything was just so great, made better of course by the company and the actual club.
Afterwards a few of us met Markus and he spent about an hour and a half just saying hello, taking a few pictures with us, having a chat with us all and enjoying himself, it was refreshing to see him act normal, the flipside to the coin if you will. I'm terrible with names but I met Kat (I think :? ) who does PR too and one other guy who asked markus to sign his shoe! This is all in between DJ Tab coming in to say hello after their set and Marcel Woods before he went on stage. Darren, Hayley, Paul & Markus then left about 4.15am, Markus had to head to Budapest for the World Tour, Darren to catch a flight home and Hayley & Paul had a long drive. I stayed to listen to Marcel Woods, who did a fantastic job tearing up the dancefloor with some great tunes.
I left about 6am, hardly able to stand with exhaustion. I went to Tower Bridge and walked across it before hoppin on the tube and getting a connection back to Gatwick where I spent a few hours napping before the flight home.
Everything above ----^
Meeting all the nice people from the forums/chat - friendly people & great fans too (put me to shame really :P)
Spending like an hour sitting down, half falling asleep while talkin/listening to Darren & Markus and seeing Tab & Marcel
Spending time in the Box during Marcel Woods' set and grabbin a picture after he was done
Just really my terrible travel plans that left me in London hours too early, and leave london nearly 10 hours too late - I'll know better for next time 8-)
Oh and the smoke in the club from the smoke machines made it ridiculously hard to get a picture of any DJ (including Markus) :lol: :lol:
I've maybe 40 minutes of video, and about 200 pictures. I'll see what's usable and put them up into a photobucket album and on youtube, I'll post them up here when I'm done :)
Was a great night and was great to see you all, i remember most of it "i think" amazing set markus played with the remix of airwave and a new remix of Without Your Near and some track/remix by tyDi was just afew of the highlights of the set.
Was nice to meet up with the usual victims :) Hayley n pops good to see you again Dan you missed out big time :( Monika gorgeous and as sexy as ever was brilliant seeing you again shame you didnt feel to well the day after, thats what England does to you after a weekend.
Darren knew you would turn up :p cool to see my little leprechaun again, Danny top man nice to meet you and Alex sorry if i scared you with my drunkness :) hahaha
Amazing night though i didnt take any pics erm blame the drink there will be some pics to come though from my mate im sure.
How the fuck did you all get into VIP ? they wouldnt let me in the fuckers :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
So that was the only downer of the night not getting to say goodbye to all of you tooked up in the vip area.
Hah Rick, you sure were drinking, but I hear that isn't unusual. I wasn't meant to be VIP (would have suited me just fine, after all I had pre-bought my ticket) but Monika told me I could say I was the other Dan who couldn't make it because he was on the list - Thanks Dan :mrgreen: :mrgreen: . Didn't you get a VIP tag when I saw you outside?
When I went down after Hayley & her dad, and Markus & Darren left you'd gone off, there was only me and Alex left, I was ready for more drinking too, shame on ya but you'd probably had enough :lol: :lol:
There'll be another time though, count on that :D

Pictures time, there's 125 of them, not all of them are from inside MOS because it was my first time in London. They can all be found by viewing the slideshow at the end, but I'll post a few here. Ignore the timestamp, my camera was being crap :D
