Markus Schulz is a German trance music DJ and producer. His weekly radio show titled “Global DJ Broadcast” makes him so famous. He is also the founder of the EDM label Coldharbour Recordings.
He is born in Eschwege (Central Germany), Markus emigrated to the United States in the 80s. Markus’ freshman production release followed in 1994 with the 6-track-strong ‘Plastik Trax EP Vol 1′.
Throughout the mid to late Nineties he followed up with a range of releases on numerous US luminary labels. He recorded ‘You Won’t See Me Cry’ for Plastik Records in 1998 (his first label), a release which was picked up by Eve Records for the UK. This became Markus’ first international sound-out.
Schulz’s DJ career has run parallel to that of his productions. In the early Nighties, having focused on the hinterland between trance & progressive, he began to reach audiences further and further afield. Then in 2004 he was signed to the David Lewis Productions agency. Now he is a regular fixture at the world’s biggest clubs, arenas and festivals, he lays down his unique trance-progressive hybrid weekly.
After several significant showings in the Top 100 DJs chart, he now ranks as one of the top 10 DJs in the world and in 2008 was voted Best American DJ at the International Dance Music Awards. Schulz’s sound was heard by continental European DJs. Following the formation of the Armada group in 2005, Armin van Buuren sought Markus out and asked him to start compiling tracks for a new vinyl series. The Coldharbour Sessions EPs launched in 2004.
They began to make notable impacts on dancefloors and within 12 months Coldharbour Recordings the label was born. Markus Schulz makes only rare use of pseudonyms through his career reportedly seeing them as being only valuable if they represent an outlet for something other than his ‘regular’ output.
He released 3 tracks “Swirl”, “Frozen” and “Lost in Brixton” under the moniker Dakota. Over time these became focal points for newer fans. Schulz resurrected the guise in 2009 and updated its sound and directed his attentions on a whole album of new Dakota material. ‘Thoughts Become Things’ was the end product and with it came a route diversion that went into a new valley-deep sound.
