Markus Schulz Enlists Jerome Isma-Ae and Orkidea on In Search of Sunrise 15 –

Twenty years after its debut, the series continues to be the definitive trance compilation mix

In 1999, trance music was rapidly approaching the pinnacle of its prominence. The early pioneers of the genre were outgrowing their roots and the influence of the ethereal beats was pushing the boundaries of the European horizon. Motivated by the pulsing, entrancing sounds surrounding him, Tiësto curated the first of what would become the quintessential trance compilation mix of all time, In Search of Sunrise.

In the span of two decades, the series has been mixed by prominent names in the genre, including Richard Durand and Markus Schulz. The latter took reins of the project last year, assisted by Andy Moor and Gabriel & Dresden. Schulz has returned for the series’ 20th anniversary in the fifteenth installment, this time aided by Jerome Isma-Ae and Orkidea.
