Bio: Robin Schulz is a German musician, DJ and record producer. Most of his songs make use of manual guitar riffs. He released the first single from his debut album, February 4th 2014, a remix of “Waves” by Dutch hip hop artist Mr Probz. This remix later received a nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. His follow-up single, released 6 June 2014, was a remix of the Lilly Wood and the Prick track “Prayer in C” from their 2010 album Invincible Friends. Both remixes have charted in many European countries and the United States, leading to international recognition for Schulz. He co-founded Lausbuben Records with Daniel Bruns and Christopher Noble.
Top of The Charts
2014 marked the start of a fairytale summer that knew just one name: Robin Schulz! His internationally gold- and platinum-certified follow-up single “Prayer In C (feat. Lilly Wood & The Prick)” went straight to #1 on iTunes in 40 countries, and topped the national singles charts in 17 countries. In total, the megahit conquered the iTunes charts in 92 countries and went top 25 in 68 countries. And that was just the beginning, as Schulz was the first-ever German artist to reach #1 of the global Shazam charts. Subsequently “Prayer In C” was officially named the “Summer Hit of 2014”. By now, “Prayer In C” is the most successful international hit of all times by any German artist.
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. Robin claims:
Experiencing all of this with interesting people and good friends is what I cherishes most. The whole team has become somewhat of a family to me, and the shows have all been one of a kind.
Despite his success, the fame and countless air miles, Robin stands firmly with both his feet safely on the ground. When he is asked what he’s most proud of, Robin Schulz responds:
“I’m proud that I still have the same friends and that I’m able to show that with music, everything is possible. There’s so much to accomplish still. So many exciting paths to walk and goals to reach. As long as you work hard and make sure not to lose the fun along the way, I’m quite confident there’s going to be some more success ahead.”
Known by The Whole World
Schulz’s 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 through times. In only the beginning of his thirties, the producer and DJ has already established himself as the most successful German artist of the past two decades. Though he started out 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, well you name it. And what’s even more impressive, the entire world knows him!
