Infusion Magazine - - BACK LOOKING -

We’re into the sweaty end of the sea­son but that didn’t stop a huge crowd from fill­ing up the out­door area of Zero Grav­ity on Fri­day night to see trance leg­end Markus Schulz play solo for the first time in Dubai in five years. We’ve com­plained be­fore about the slow speed of the bar queues here but on this night it was truly abysmal with your parched cor­re­spon­dents wait­ing around for 20 min­utes whilst try­ing to or­der an iced tea. Thank­fully we were no­ticed be­fore we tried the “don’t you know who I am” play, which usu­ally doesn’t work be­cause no, no one knows or cares.

Hap­pily, ev­ery­thing pro­duc­tion- wise at the venue was on- point, with a much louder sound sys­tem than we re­mem­ber and light­ing that def­i­nitely added to the ex­pe­ri­ence. With the masses rar­ing to go de­spite the heat, Markus de­liv­ered a solid two hour set that didn’t stray too far into the com­mer­cial sphere, play­ing his newer work and tracks from his la­bel Cold­har­bour Record­ings, as well as some fresh remixes of old clas­sics like ‘ The New World’ and Tiesto’s ‘ Traf­fic’. With big smiles on the faces of the crowd and the mob­bing re­ceived af­ter the lights went down, the Uni­corn Slayer proved to be a huge hit and we’d love to see him back in Dubai soon.
