Markus Schulz's record label "Coldharbour Recordings", often takes pride in the search and discovery of new talent, ready to emerge like a soaring eagle into the dance music scene. One of these talented individuals is German producer Dirk Wershofen, that goes by the artist name of "D72". You may have heard some of his past productions such as "Together" along with "Dan Iwan" or his very own "Magika". This time he set his sights on the harbour of all things dark and groovy and offers us the magnificent "Without You". No wonder this was quickly snatched up as you will realize further along.
From the very first moment we are swept away into a world wrought of darkness and gloom. It is ever present only allowing tiny slivers of light within. A moody bassline with a distant echo dominates the whole space before us while the rest of the elements begin to gradually settle in. The steady booming allows the mischievous percussion in to play, while out of the darkness and gloom a kind of dark horn makes its dramatic appearance as if to call upon lost souls. A broken down choir takes its part as emotions of absence are firmly planted within. Rhythmical synths and proggy grooves play their part accordingly, enhancing the already emotional charged atmosphere as male vocals find their way ever inward. These vocals are expertly paired up amongst shimmering crystal-like effects and sheer melodies that continue the emotional ride ever forward. Feelings of longing and sadness are slowly but steadily becoming replaced with perseverance, hope and utter determination.
An expertly crafted tune packed with the exact stuff to keep us satisfied while at the same time making us crave for more!
