Armada at Ibiza Mixed by Markus Schulz: #1 on iTunes
He promised to deliver his personal best Ibiza season in 2008, and now Markus Schulz has superseded that very same promise. Playing no less than twelve of the Armada Nights at Amnesia in La Isla Blanca this summer, Markus has received unanimous appraisal for his epic performances in the club this far, from fans, colleagues and peers alike.
To embark on Armada’s fourth year of residency on the island, he was asked to undertake one of two mix compilations to showcase the finest of Balearic sounds for this summer. However, the compilation would be tailored to encompass Markus’ vision of trance in Ibiza, where he was presented with the challenge of predicting the biggest movers and shakers on dancefloors for the foreseeable future.
The results have been nothing short of outstanding. Two days after being released on iTunes, the world’s biggest online music store, Armada at Ibiza Summer 2008 – Mixed by Markus Schulz ascended straight to the top of the charts, an incredible achievement.
Markus, currently in Ibiza following another successful residency night at Amnesia, was thrilled on receipt of the news. “I am absolutely delighted,” says Markus. “There is so much competition in the market these days with compilations being released by the world’s biggest DJs, and ultimately you are judged on how you envisage which tracks are going to have the biggest reaction with the fans and the clubbers.”
Markus continued by saying, “What makes this such a proud achievement for me is knowing that so many people out there are sharing my vision of trance music, and how it fits into this special island. Thank you for the support you have given the CD so far!”
This coming Friday, July 11th, Markus moves from one residency to another, as he opens a new chapter by beginning his tenure as resident DJ for The Gallery at the legendary Ministry of Sound in London. “The world tour across the summer is relentless, but when you have the opportunity to play at fantastic clubs like Amnesia and Ministry, and to earn the right to call yourself resident at both venues, I know I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else”.
On this week’s edition of the Global DJ Broadcast, Markus will present some of the brand new tracks which feature on the Armada at Ibiza compilation.
