Often we hear EDM DJs like Steve Aoki, David Guetta, Alesso, Calvin Harris, Zedd and Avicii who are pretty much present in the public eye with their music. But then comes Robin Schulz popping out of nowhere dropping hits like “Prayer In C” and a remix of “Waves” with the company of Lilly Wood & Mr. Probz, respectively.
But who exactly is Robin Schulz, the man behind all these tracks?
Hailing from a continent where EDM, techno, and all that bass-bumping sounds are no stranger, Robin Schulz is a German native who has been mixing for almost a decade.
Highly influenced by local and international DJs like Richie Hawtin, Booka Shade, Lexy & Paul, Robin incorporated their tracks in the early stages of his mixing career.

But it wasn’t until 2009 when he began to make a name for himself and produce his own music. According to Resident Advisor’s mini-bio on Robin, “Over the years, his sound changed into direction of tech house and deep house, [in] what can be heard in his current tracks.”
(And FYI, for those of you who don’t know what deep house is, it’s basically house music influenced by soul and jazz-funk. These tracks are usually seven to ten minutes long, but for Robin Schulz – and for radio play’s sake – they’re cut down to four to five minutes.)
As “Prayer In C” and his remix of Mr. Probz’s “Waves” continue to receive airplay on 92.3 AMP in NYC, both songs are respectively taking spots on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay and Hot Dance/Electronic Song charts. Both songs, however, have placed #1 in Austria, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and of course, Germany.
And just like other DJs, Robin remixes some popular songs by adding a little flair of his own. On his Soundcloud and his new album “Prayer,” Robin remixes David Guetta’s “Dangerous,” Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be,” and Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars.”
