Markus Schulz is a US trance music DJ and producer who orginates from Germany. Though he was active throughout the nineties his career didn’t really take off until the noughties. Schulz's many releases and remixes occupy the progressive end of the trance spectrum. Repeatedly voted in DJ Magazine’s top 10 DJs and recipient of multiple awards, Schulz headlines festivals and clubs across the globe and hosts an internationally syndcated radio show 'The Global DJ Broadcast show'. He is signed to Armin van Burren’s Armada Music and he runs his own label Coldharbour Recordings, which is distributed by Armada. Markus Schulz has worked long and hard to achieve the global success which he is now enjoying. His early years saw a strong appetite for experimentation and a desire to find ‘his sound’. He has become famous for a progressive tinged sound and has played a major role in helping reinvent trance as a genre, helping it move away from tired cliché. Although some of his more recent Armada releases see him leaning towards the mainstream he’s done well to move away from, his releases as Dakota and his DJ sets continue to fly the flag for the progressive end of the trance spectrum.
