Markus Schulz is a legendary figure in electronic music. A name synonymous with creativity, perfection, and trance music, Schulz has been amazing crowds worldwide for the better part of two decades. Known for his unparalleled versatility, the king of bass-line driven trance has been ranked in the top ten of DJ Mag’s Top 100 since 2008. A model of consistency and unmatched musical talent, Schulz continues to expand on an already successful career. From legendary live performances to his weekly radio show, titled Global DJ Broadcast; Schulz continues to solidify his position as royalty in the world of trance music.
Self-described as a DJ who wants his music to “slay unicorns” (an inside joke with his supporters around the world); Schulz is renown as the most innovative producer on the planet. Combining elements of ambient trance with thumping bass, Schulz is an artist whose best musical trait is flexibility. Often playing sets long into the night, Schulz takes his crowds on musical journeys that even the best DJs in the world are jealous of. From dark, emotional build-ups to monumental drops, a Markus Schulz live-set or compilation album is a life changing experience.
Starting in 2005, Schulz has been releasing the annual City Series compilation album. Highlighting some of the finest songs in trance and progressive genres, Schulz’s album continues to be one of the most popular, and extraordinary, compilations available. The upcoming edition – Los Angeles ’12 – is set for release on February 17th via Armada Records. Already dubbed the “album of the month” by Mixmag, the dual-disc compilation showcases music from the likes of KhoMha, Mr. Pit, Rex Mundi and an exclusive new track from Schulz titled “Bolandi.” The flawless mixing and exclusive tracks combine tranquil breakdowns and heart-pounding bass to take the listener on an emotional voyage. Scripted to parallel life in Los Angeles, the dual disc album uses music to display everyday events in the city. From the chaos of the busy freeways to the lavishness of a walk down the streets of Hollywood, the album uses rhythm and melody to trigger emotions unbeknownst to the listener. The feelings prompted are fully attributable to Schulz’s unworldly talent, and are the key ingredients making Los Angeles ‘12 a masterpiece.
To celebrate the release of LA ’12, Schulz will be performing a massive release event this weekend at Hollywood’s famed club Avalon. On back-to-back nights, Saturday & Sunday, clubbers in Los Angeles will be given a full and unforgettable live Markus Schulz experience. Not only will these special parties celebrate the album’s release, but they will also set a standard citywide – officially marking the emergence and infusion of Markus Schulz and his incredible music in Los Angeles.
