At New York City’s Marquee Club last Friday night, Markus Schulz picked up the 2018 award for America’s Best DJ. Having hit the #1 spot in DJ Times magazine’s annual reader’s poll back in 2012, Markus repeated the feat just two years later. Having seen off competition from a host of fellow US DJ glitterati, Markus – famed for his open-till-close sets and energetic performances – brought home the title for a record-breaking third time.

Ahead of his set at Marquee, Schulz was presented with the #1 position prize – the much-coveted golden Pioneer DJ mixer. Following the theft of his previously awarded mixers during Hurricane Irma looting back in Sept, 2017, the moment proved especially sweet for the Miami-based DJ. The award also caps off an extraordinary year for the DJ/producer – one that’s seen the release his first ‘In Bloom’ and ‘Afterdark’ EPs, and – in the form of ‘We Are The Light’ – his seventh artist album. Congratulation Markus Schulz, you deserved it!
