Robin Schulz (born 28 April 1987)[2][3] is a German DJ and producer. Most of his songs make use of electric guitar riffs. On 4 February, 2014, he released the first single from his debut album, 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.[4] 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. His references in electronic music are Todd Terry, Armand Van Helden, Roger Sanchez, Tiësto and the Epic Sax Guy.

Career

Robin Schulz began DJ'ing at the age of 17. He got his inspiration from Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Armand van Helden and Tiësto. By the age of 20 he owned a night club, which he ran for two years before he decided to start producing his own music. Schulz experimented for several years before beginning to upload his tracks to YouTube, where his melodic, bouncy pop-house sound earned him millions of views. [citation needed]
