Get ready to Scream some more!

armada music

Markus Schulz is set to release Scream 2, his fifth-studio album and the sequel to last year’s Scream album. The 17 track album is sort of Markus’ going back to his roots.

Scream 2 kicks off with Reloaded, a track bursting with big room sounds with a melodramatic break filled with haunting chant and rolling kick drums that would surely be a hit on a dance floor. Another dance floor ready track is Dancing In The Key Of Life with a higher pitched melody and faster bpm. And In The Shadows which shows Markus prowess in producing - blending spoken words seamlessly with big room melody and bass en route to a club room vibe.

There are also tracks that are geared towards the festival vibe and one of my favorite is Remember This, the most sought after ID last year. Pulsating bass line and melodic synths are abundant on this track as well as in Mardi Gras and the darker Destino track.

The album is also filled with vocal tracks which might not please the purist listeners of trance. But give it a listen and you will be surprise how well Markus produced each track. Liz Primo’s voice in the piano-filled melodies of Blown Away is just amazing while jaw-dropping vocals by Liz Horsman in Lord Knows will surely be a fan favorite.

Markus showed his prowess in mixing again - combining old-school dance sound with modern day progressive synths in Make You Fall which features the powerful voice of CeCe Peniston. He then found the balance between Lady V’s sultry vocals and big room melodic synths in Erase You. One of my fave of the album and  the new “stalker anthem.”

Scream 2 ends with two great calming tracks - Reflection and Towards The Sun, a track he collaborated with Rex Mundi. Both tracks got that feel-good upbeat vibe that puts a smile on your face.

Markus went back to his roots with the album. It might not be a journey down the rabbit hole but with stellar production and high quality tracks, Scream 2 will surely be a great addition to anyone’s collection - whether you are a purist or a more progressive listener. So get ready to scream some more when Scream 2 hits the stores on February 21.
