Markus Schulz & Adina Butar – Indestructible
Hold your breath for this one! Having shared a life together through song title and lyric (not least ‘Breathe Me To Life’, ‘You & I’, ‘Universe Is Mine’ & ‘Muse’), soul mates Markus & Adina open another chapter today.
Their first on-the-record since the ‘We Are The Light’-based ‘Breathe Me To Life’, ‘Indestructible’s sentiments couldn’t be any clearer, nor its sonic chemistry more evident.
For his part in this consummate two-hander, Markus conspires clubfloor uproar at every production turn and twist. Marching drums, tech resonance, percussive crunch and bursts of call-and-response distortion all surge through ‘Indestructible’s system. In the drop, he cracks the door to some lighter tones, raining down the pianoforte and overturing Adina’s heart-on-sleeve, but no-punches-pulled song.
Touching on the themes familiar to most, Adina contemplates not only love’s nature, but also what it takes to make it survive and thrive. Post-break, through an uprush of b-line power, pitch flame and big synth glory, Markus answers that call.
