I used to disregard the American trance/progressive scene as derivative and boring, but damn, Markus Schulz’ exciting first album, Progression, has showed me how erred that thinking was. While he is a naturalised American from Germany, he is bringing the beats to the USA with a vigour that sends me into shivers. I purchased Progression on a blessed whim about a year ago when the album was no more than a great, few weeks old listen – now it is among my staple listens. And because of Markus’ technical mixing, Progression houses a few benchmark songs for headphone testing! Well, now the American trance man himself has become a Global DJ Top 15 member and has an app. Markus Schulz by phizuu is all things Schulz, but in your pocket, and unlike myriad other web-leaching apps, free. Did I download it? What do you think?
