The supergroup’s Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz don’t have time for trance’s rainbows and unicorns. They just want to rage.
Last November, in between sold out gigs at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom and Los Angeles’ Palladium, the trance superstars of New World Punx -- Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz -- set up a makeshift studio inside their Hollywood hotel rooms.
“The housekeeping people freaked out when they walked in,” Schulz admits. “There were speakers everywhere.”
Those familiar with the work of Corsten and Schulz individually might have also freaked out when they first heard New World Punx -- a brattish and aggro side project for two artists known for their lush and sweeping trance catalog. That kind of jolt to the senses is no accident.
