Markus Schulz & Sebu (Capital Cities) - Upon My Shoulders

If Schulz history teaches us anything, it's 'don't count on Markus to do the expected'! Whether it's reinterpreting indie-folk with 'Facedown', getting collaborative with hip-hop's hall-of-fame on 'Sleepwalkers' or writing the lyrics for his 'Watch The World' album, his next artistic gymnastic is rarely more than a script-flip away.

What are the best uses for Trance music?

What are the best uses for Trance music?

Trance has always been interesting in that it’s a very specific offshoot of electronic and house music, and yet a difficult one to define. If you want to get technical about it of course you can go with the tempo, which Wikipedia sets at 110-150 bpm, but that won’t mean much to people who haven’t specifically studied music.
