Regarded as the European equivalent of Miami Music Week, the annual Amsterdam Dance Event festivities have grown to become one of the most important weeks of the year for clubbers and industry members. For Markus Schulz, the city of Amsterdam encompasses layers vital to his own career story.
The Dutch capital has already been subject to a full city series compilation back in 2008; and when the concept of Markus’ 2015 production series came to fruition, Amsterdam had many reasons to be considered.
Moving from the peace of the canals, Markus’ representation is a more nocturnal affair, in a city famed for its Red Light District. Made specifically as a liveset opener, the piercing stabs and throbbing bassline is overwhelmed with a spine tingling melody that turns the darkness into the bright lights of the stage.
Dancing in the Red Light will be an essential for Amsterdam and beyond.
