Black sunglasses, a baseball cap flipped backwards, and his amazingly strong sense for hits that generate 9-digit streams and move crowds across the globe is what distinguishes him as an extremely talented and one of the most successful German artists: Robin Schulz. The Lower Saxony native is actually more the reserved type, who would much rather stand behind his decks and let his music speak for itself. Robin Schulz: a picture-perfect career. Making his way from a local insider to the nation’s “next big thing” and eventually to an internationally acclaimed mega star. At only 30 years of age, the producer and DJ has already established himself as the most successful German artist of the past two decades.
Robin Schulz began playing smaller clubs as a DJ somewhere in rural Lower Saxony – his beloved home. Today, he knows the entire world: Las Vegas, New York, Tokyo. And what’s even more impressive, the entire world knows him. His 2014 breakthrough single, the multi-platinum certified Top 1 remix of “Waves (feat. Mr. Probz)”, was a first sign of the greater things that were to follow. Though not even Schulz himself could have predicted the incredible snowball effect of the events three years ago and the extent of his current success.
After performing at renowned events such as London’s iTunes Festival, the Belgian Tomorrowland, Mayday, Nature One Festival, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and the Ultra Festival in Japan as well as doing sold-out tours throughout Europe, the US, Asia, and Australia, the rather humble artist has already joined the ranks of the greats. It is no longer uncommon for Schulz to play in front of 100,000 euphoric party people. Wherever he mans the decks, he sends crowds into a temporary frenzy. Alongside his label buddy David Guetta he frequently moves the masses at Ibiza’s most famous clubs Ushuaia und Pacha to name only one of numerous examples.
