Markus Schulz

'Don’t just do what everyone else is doing, do it your own way. That was probably one of the most important things when I was coming up...' - Markus Shulz imparts the wisdom in one of our featured posts this week.

  1. Wow, I thought Dance For Decks would have been a non-profit organization that gave resources to the homeless that they needed rather than teaching them how to be a DJ. Doesn’t that seem a little upside-down to you? I question the motivation and the result of this effort as it seems this is a token effort, rather than any real attempt at doing some good.

  2. Big fan of Mr. Schulz, much respect for resident DJ’s, seems like a humble guy as well.

  3. Markus is an absolute legend. I loved the article; thanks for posting it!
