Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 4]

Sunday Night Soul

It’s the first weekend of December, meaning I, like most of you out there, spent my Sunday stuck inside watching the snowflakes gently trickle down to the ground. Being trapped indoors isn’t always a bad thing however. At least you now have an excuse to huddle around the fireplace as you listen to the latest edition of Sunday Night Soul (if you don’t have a fireplace, a space heater will have to do). This edition is packed further to the brim than that mug of piping hot cocoa you’re gripping onto right now, with tasty selections from some of the most talented singers from across the web. It’s hard to pick a favorite from this crop, but I’d like to point your attention to offerings from newcomers Snoh Aalegra, Rosie LoweDrew Love, and SPZRKT. Of course we have to recognize budding series regulars Raleigh RitchieTev’n, and Tei Shi, as well as TMN favorites Childish GambinoJhené Aiko, Bondax, and Sebastian Mikael. If that stellar lineup alone doesn’t give it away, we’re rather confident that you’ll leave tonight’s presentation well satisfied.

Gecko (Preview)

Dutch producer Oliver Helden has brought a fresh new sound to Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label, and simply put, we’re grinning ear to ear. Not that we have a problem with trance, electro house or progressive house, but it’s nice to see a spotlight on a really solid tech house tune. Without the use of vocals, a beautiful melody or devastating drops, “Gecko,” crawls under your skin in the best way. It has one of those infectious beats that demands your presence on the dance floor, and we can pretty much guarantee that you’re going to oblige its siren call.

This tune is out just in time for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, dropping December 30th. Mark your calendar.

[TMN Resident Artist for December] Markus Schulz

Markus Schulz
GDJB World Tour: Chicago

Everyone likes for the end of the year to go out with a bang, and TMN is no exception to this desire.

For our last Resident Artist before the New Year, we wanted to find someone whose music speaks for itself, someone who is beloved by many and who continues to demonstrate their undeniable musical talent.Please welcome to the stage, Mr. Markus Schulz.

Over the last 10 years this insane DJ has crafted the individual music identities of progressive, trance, and house into his own unique fusion sound. In 2008 Schulz broke into the #10 on DJ Magazine’s Top 100 chart and since then he has continued his great success playing over 150 gigs a year, two label releases, millions of listenership, his personal Global DJ broadcast and he holds the title last year for DJ Times Magazine reader-voted America’s Best DJ.
Like many artists, Schulz’s love for dance music started at a young age. He emigrated from Germany to the United States when he was little and here, when he was just 13, he became enamored with the breakdance scene. From there he started to remix songs and his DJ career was born. Schulz’s sound was quickly noticed by European DJs. In 2004, he signed with heavyweight DJ agency David Lewis Productions (also home to Armin Van Buuren, a friend of Schulz’s). From this point on, the list of Schulz’s accomplishments as a DJ and a producer expand far beyond just one blog post. The truth is in his music, Schulz has been a prominent face of dance music for quite some time and will continue to spread his love of the music to as many countries, cities, and people as he can.
Here’s to ending 2013 with a dance music legend whose name is Markus Schulz.
