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 and Adina now open another chapter. 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 two-hander, Markus aims for clubfloor uproar at every production turn and twist. Marching drums, tech resonance, percussive crunch and bursts of call-and-response distortion all surge through its system. In the drop, he cracks the door to some lighter tones, raining down the pianoforte and overturing Adina’s 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 aims to answer that call.
Living both through and for the music, the track presents another window into Markus Schulz & Adina Butar’s shared world.
