In Search Of Sunrise has changed one aspect for 2019. Its fifteenth musical quest has broken with its well-established release tradition, picking up an autumn spot. Notably, along with its November release, it’s also adopted a different aesthetic. Cooler, yet more refined musically? You decide. But in terms of ways to wrap up your 2019, you could hardly ask for more.
Returning after last year’s triumphant showing, Markus Schulz again assumes responsibility for its opening mix. Taking over from Gabriel & Dresden’s middle disc spot is Jerome Isma-Ae, while Finland’s Orkidea brings his ice-cool nous to the third.
Established master of the thrall-like open-till-close session, Markus Schulz is able to access his deeper nature at will. With his ISOS-head on, his disc brings an expertly mixed cross-section of his own recently finished music, collabs, and on-approach Coldharbour material. You’ll also find the finest of autumn’s desk-fresh audio and a couple of 2019’s most quickly established anthems for extra measure. From his own locker are the just-completed scene-setter “Bells of Planaxis”, as well as “Sunrise Over The Bay” and his first Talla 2XLC teaming, “Mainhattan”. There are also In Search Of Sunrise themed remakes of recent smash “Ave Maria”, the timeless Paul Oakenfold/Carla Werner classic “Southern Sun” and others.
Jerome Isma-Ae’s “Search” likewise commences at his own front door. New production “Kubrick” is brought swiftly into play, with the digital version also including bonus newies “Drifting” and “Underwater Love”. Jerome finds space further in for a wealth of J.I.A. remixes. His work on 8Kays/Diana Miro-pairing ‘Inside’, Rue & Alastor’s “Untethered” & “Stardust” by Michael & Levan & Stiven Rivic, as well as classics like Jam & Spoon’s “Follow Me” & Orkidea’s “Nana” all find their place. In and around are Wally Lopez’s stylishly chilled revision of Betoko & Alex Kaspersky’s “Pluttonya” and DAVI’s mesmerizing “Two Suns In The Sky”.
Coming under the steady gaze of Orkidea, “In Search Of Sunrise 15” commences its final act with the ambient rework of Barry Jamieson’s “Stars”. From its very first bar, the Finlander dials into both ISOS’ ethics and autumnal aspects. Henry Saiz’s “I Can Feel It Coming” and “Odd One Out” from Yotto fall perfectly into step behind, as do Orkidea’s own ‘Metta’ & ‘One Man’s Dream’. Gundamea’s fresh take on Solarstone’s “Solarcoaster”, Oakenfold’s year-starting “Stonehenge”, BT & Matt Fax’s “The Noetic” and others aren’t far behind. Tying the mix off Orkidea draws on the likes of Sweden’s Ticon, with their coolly grooving “1987” and Bicep’s celebrated breaks-fest, “Glue”.
“In Search Of Sunrise 15 mixed by Markus Schulz, Jerome Isma-Ae and Orkidea” is out on the November 08th 2019!
