Markus Schulz is, arguably, the hardest working man in trance. A staple of the DJ Mag Top 100 for over a decade, Schulz still plays over 150 shows a year, a number that would make even the most hardened tour DJ wince. 2014 saw Schulz host his first-ever Ibiza residency at Amnesia, an achievement of which he is deservedly proud.
