Markus Schulz presents Dakota feat. Koen Groenvald Ė Mota Mota
With his first release under the moniker since 2015, Markus Schulz is bringing back his Dakota alter-ego in full for in 2017. His latest track, partnering with Dutch techno legend Koen Groenvald, ĎMota Motaí resurrects the dark vibes that are associated with Dakota and packs them into an impressive track.
Schulz has used Dakota in the past to explore some of the darker sides of electronic music, stating:
ďTo me the audio that Dakota presents and the music which I put out under my own name stand totally apart. Itís an entirely separate set of tempo, sound-ranges and FX rules. To have this studio Ďother selfí with which to produce this type of music is more important to me than ever.Ē
ĎMota Motaí is a perfect example of Schulzís target. Opening with a hi-hat to set the rhythm and building with snares and haunting synth work, the track progresses to its deep beat and pounding horns. Groenvaldís influence on the track stands out, lending the heavy techno beats that we can expect. Fans of the underground sound have a treat on their hands with this new track.
ĎMota Mota,í the latest from Markus Schulzís Dakota project, is available on our site now. Keep an eye out for his new album ĎThe Nine Skiesí coming out later this year as well.
