Some artistic unions are really only a matter time. As is the case with the first in-studio teaming between stylistically adventurous producer, songwriter & turntable titan Markus Schulz and composer, singer and all round high-achieving musical polymath, BT!

Over the last few months both Markus & BT have been in the co-production zone, not least with the debut paring Schulz & ATB on ‘Heartbeat’ and the Transeau x Corsten link-up ‘1997’. This month their production roads converge on one shared opus – the result which is the almighty ‘I Need Love’.

‘I Need Love’ sees both producers working the studio controls and additional sees BT owning its moving vocal quarter. Setting the track’s framework up a storm, the pair contrast the march its drums and percussive skip with the moodily prowling presence its intro riffs. With keener balance still, BT’s from-within lyrics & expressive vocals penetrate soul-deep, whilst drop-side Markus counterweights the pathos with the glorious chime his mainline. Check out the single below and let us know what you think!
