The global dance music community could be defined by any number of different touchstones: the massive festivals, the regional scenes, the different DJs, and of course the the cultural landmarks. For the world of trance and the more European side of things, Ibiza is no doubt a hallmark. It seems anyone worth their salt in the trance, techno, and house worlds at one point or another goes to the White Isle and participates in the madness, with the select few getting to host their own dose of specialty. German-born, America-residing trance DJ Markus Schulz is joining those ranks this summer as he hosts his first residency ever.
Over eight dates (which kick off on July 6 and ends on September 7), Schulz is taking over Ibiza's famous Amnesia club and is sure to bring special guests like Paul Oakenfold, Cosmic Gate, Cedric Gervais, and even turn one night into a special New World Punx night alongside Ferry Corsten! You'll find him doing seven of those dates in the main room, and one on the terrace, and the August 3 date will be a special Markus Schulz open-to-close set. Now ahead of his residency, Schulz has given us 10 quintessential tracks for Ibiza in 2014 to get us all in the right state of mind. Check out his selection, and his words on each tune.
