Een nieuwe start

Het nieuws over dat de club zou worden overgenomen door een nieuwe eigenaar is niet onopgemerkt gebleven binnen de internationale clubscene.
 Eden opende in 1999 in het centrum van San Antonio, de stad die dient als een toegangspoort voor vele clubbers die naar Ibiza komen om de unieke party lifestyle van het eiland te ervaren. Eden is een nachtclub met een grote capaciteit en met de recente reconstructie van het gebouw, staat de club een geweldige nieuwe start te wachten. Eden was voorheen al de thuisbasis van muziekiconen als Pete Tong, Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, Faithless en Lady Gaga.

Van de Kuit staat bekend om zijn doeltreffende zakelijke instinct en het vermogen om oude etablissementen om te toveren tot succesvolle ondernemingen.
 “Naast DJ optredens, werden er in de oude Eden veelal schuim-party’s en live-avonden georganiseerd. De nieuwe Eden zal zich puur op muziek richten en is erop gebrand om een verschil in het uitgaansleven van San Antonio te maken, aldus Van de Kuit.
 “Eden zal iedere week de beste en nieuwste internationale line-ups presenteren, fantastische shows opvoeren, heeft het beste sound system en een interieur dat je naar een moderne interpretatie van de Garden of Eden zal meenemen. En dit is nog maar het begin…. “

Spectaculaire opening
Bij de grote heropening van de club op 27 juni, zal Eden zijn eerste nacht vieren met een A-list DJ line-up in combinatie met aanstormend talent. 
De volledige line-up zal volgende week worden onthuld.

New release: Markus Schulz – Scream

Back in June 2010 one of the world’s most inventive electronic music minds released the artist album odyssey that was ‘Do You Dream?’ Fan applause, cross-genre DJ support and dance press acclaim greeted one chart-scaling, master-blasting single after another.

From ‘Do You Dream’s day of release though, Markus Schulz had already begun imagining and conceiving the sound designs that would go to make up his next long-playing excursion.

Now, comprising a 19-track packed collection of ear catching, floor quenching, seismic audio, his ‘Dream’ is about to turn into a mighty ‘Scream’!

“When you’re in the studio, deep in production mode on an album, your mind’s eye is forever picturing the reactions tracks, and moments in tracks, are going to generate”, says Markus. So in many respects the title ‘Scream’ is also the album’s mission statement. It’s that response, that surge of feeling and emotion I want to come back up off the floor when one of its tracks goes on. When it happens, you know all the late hours in the studio, putting the pieces in place, have been worth it!”

With a single-minded quality-meets-quantity credo, Markus has made judicious use of known vocal talent and new singer/songwriter blood on the album. These include US-based sensations Jaren and Aruna, as well as Paper Aeroplanes front-woman Sarah Howells. Also front-and-centre are precocious newer talents, with the likes of Seri and new Schulz discovery-cum-protégée, Adina Butar joining ‘Scream’s vocal cast.

Giving the album a strong song-edged bias has resulted in one with productions that span EDM’s spectrum.

For every daytime radio inciting number (‘Until It’s Gone’, ‘Love Rain Down On Me’ and current single ‘Caught’ to tag but a few), there’s also the more underground themes of tracks like ‘Deep In The Night’, ‘Absolution’ and the album’s thrilling title track. During the final weeks of ‘Scream’s production Schulz commented:“one of the side-effects of producing instrumental long-players like my Dakota ‘Thoughts Become Things’ series is that you keenly feel how much you miss working with lyrics and vocals. ‘Scream’ will be my most vocal-oriented album yet and I believe that the singer-song-writing talent I’ve collaborated with, it will also make for my most accomplished”.

‘Scream’ isn’t exclusively about the vocal though. Building the consummate 360° electronic music album requires contrast and that comes firmly into focus with its heart-of-the-dancefloor seeking instrumentals. From the scene-setting beat-free overture of ‘Our Moment’ to the serrated synthery of floor-ammo like ‘Triotronic’, ‘Soul Seeking’ and ‘Loops n Things’ (with Ferry Corsten) it delivers a comprehensive, panoramic, day-or-night-time listening experience.

Through it Schulz has once again demonstrated that the production side of his mind is alive, kicking and quite literally screaming to be turned loose. And on August 31st that’s exactly what will happen.

Planet EDM will never be quite the same again.
