Markus Schulz Voted America's Best DJ; Award Ceremony & Closing Party At Marquee Nightclub On October 7

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Plexi PR) The votes have all been counted and it's official - DJ Times magazine and Pioneer DJ are proud to announce that Markus Schulz has been voted 'America's Best DJ' for 2012. The talented Miami-based DJ will be honored October 7 in Las Vegas for the ABDJ Closing Party, which will include a press reception, at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. After being presented with his trophy--a special Gold-Plated Pioneer mixer—Markus will take to the decks along with special guest A-Trak to cap the wildest Columbus Day Weekend Vegas has ever seen. Even better - the party is free!

"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."

While most of the votes were cast online at the America's Best DJ website, the America's Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ & DJ Times supported the contest by allowing fans to vote in-person at 20+ club and festival events.

"As always, Pioneer congratulates all the DJs nominated for America's Best DJ, and we would like to offer special congratulations to Markus Schulz, this year's winner," said David "Davey Dave" Arevalo, Sr. Manager - Marketing/Artist Relations for Pioneer Electronics (USA). "Markus has been a leading DJ/producer for two decades now and he's cultivated a loyal and lasting fanbase. By creating exciting music and maintaining one of the game's busiest touring schedules, which includes top festivals and club venues, he has helped spread DJ culture around the globe. For all of these accomplishments, he richly deserves this award."

"I'm very happy to see Markus win America's Best DJ," said Sol Shafer, Director of Special Operations & Music, TAO Group, which oversees Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub. "For almost the past decade, I have seen him make people smile and dance—and this is an achievement that is well deserved."
