Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten have been playing back to back sets since the early part of 2012 and today they have announced a formal partnership that they call 'New World Punx'. According to Ferry Corsten's website, the name fuses together Corsten's hit single 'Punk' and Markus Schulz's 'The New World'.
New World Punx (NWP) promises to be "harder, more driving and more aggressive than the melodic, euphoric style of soaring trance." As I'm a big fan of the darker side of trance I'm encouraged to hear what a NWP set will sound like.
The new collaboration will also include new tracks created under the NWP moniker as "Forthcoming releases under the NWP alias are in the works." 'Loops & Tings' was one of my favourite trance tracks of 2012 so I am eagerly awaiting what they have in store for 2013.
Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten will be making their New World Punx debut in Canada at the Bal en Blanc in Montreal at the end of the month. For ticket information click here.
