This year two stadium-sized titans came together for some special shows that saw them play back-to-back. Although both Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten have been decidedly trance until now, they billed themselves as an EDM duo and offered a broader sonic picture as a result.
Going under the New World Punx banner, the pair played their first show at Madison Square Garden, promise many more future dates and have even been collaborating in the studio.
As well as also touring plenty of far-flung territories on his own, Schulz also hooked up with The M Machine — a dance band who have previously released on Skrillex’s label — for a month-long tour of the States. Somehow, also this year the man known as a Unicorn Slayer (because of his harder, darker style of trance) has been putting the finishing touches to his fifth album, 'Scream II', due for release soon.
