Markus Schulz Voted America’s Best DJ for 2012

While I'm not the biggest fan of DJ Times' contest, America’s Best DJ, I must top my hat at Markus Schulz for nabbing the honors this year. The Miami-based DJ beat out a big list of notable DJs and will be celebrating the honor on October 7 in Las Vegas for the ABDJ closing party where he'll take to the decks along with special guest A-Trak over Columbus Day weekend. If you have plans on being in Vegas that weekend… the party is free. Woot woot.

"I've just found out the amazing news that I've been voted America’s Best DJ—it’s a huge honor and I want to thank everyone for their support,” said Markus Schulz from the road, as he continued his tour in support of “Scream,” his latest artist album on Armada Music. “It is has been an extraordinary time for dance music in the United States over the last couple of years. I'd also like to thank the promoters and all the industry people that have worked so hard throughout the years to help DJ culture come of age. Our scene has been built from a foundation of respect and admiration for the music. When I’m on stage doing what I love every week, winning awards is the last thing on my mind. So to win this really means an incredible amount to me, and I am humbled by everyone out there who believes in what I do. I'd like to thank DJ Times, its readership and my hugely loyal fans for their incredible degree of support in this. I'm very proud to represent the booming scene in the US.”
