German house music producer Robin Schulz became an overnight sensation when he scored an international smash hit with his very first commercial release, a lush remix of "Waves" by Dutch rapper Mr. Probz. It hit number one in six European countries and number three in six more, and his follow-up, a club-ready remix of French indie pop duo Lilly Wood & the Prick's "Prayer in C," was even more successful, going to number one in ten European countries. It wasn't as though Schulz hadn't paid his dues, however. Born on April 28, 1987, in Osnabrück, he began DJing at the tender age of 17, influenced by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Armand Van Helden, and Tiësto. By 20, he had his own club night, which he ran for two years before the yen to make his own music led him into production. Schulz experimented for several years before uploading his tracks to YouTube, where his melodic, bouncy pop-house sound earned him millions of views. After the success of his first two singles, his third, "Willst Du" (Do You Want To), a remix of a satirical track by German rapper Alligatoah, was released in September 2014, and his debut album, Prayer, followed later that month. Having made his name with remixes, Schulz was not about to mess with the formula, and the album consisted almost entirely of his remixes of other artists' songs, with only a few original productions. Later that year, his remix of "Waves" by Mr. Probz became a massive dancefloor hit, followed by the even greater success of his remix of Lilly Wood & the Prick's "Prayer in C." Schulz released the single "Headlights" in 2015, along with the sophomore album Sugar. The "Shed a Light" single -- a collaboration with David Guetta and Cheat Codes -- was issued in 2016. The song spawned a pair of remix EPs and nearly 200 million streams. The track also appeared the following year on Schulz's full-length Uncovered, which also included the single "OK" featuring James Blunt. A second single, "Oh Child" with Piso 21, arrived in 2018. He scored another hit that year with "Speechless" featuring Erika Sirola before returning with the 2019 single "All This Love," which featured Harlœ. More non-album singles followed, including 2019's "Rather Be Alone" with Nick Martin and Sam Martin, 2020's "In Your Eyes" featuring Alida, and 2020's "Alane" with Wes.

Dance - Released September 19, 2014 | Tonspiel
Heavy on his remixes for other artists, Prayer is the first album from producer Robin Schulz, whose approach to house music here offers an airier and and more sensitive alternative to the dominant sound of harder-hitting EDM. This features his remixes of Mr. Probz's "Waves" and Lilly Wood & the Prick's "Prayer in C," two tracks that went to number one in Schulz's native Germany and either topped or nearly topped charts elsewhere. © Andy Kellman /TiVo
Dance - Released September 25, 2015 | Tonspiel
Unlike his previous album Prayer, Robin Schulz's sophomore effort Sugar isn't so heavy on the remixes for other artists, since all the productions originate from the EDM DJ himself. Singles "Sugar," "Headlights," and "Yellow" are the easy pick highlights, but the tropical-flavored "Heatwave" with Akon is also up there, along with the violin-spinning "Pride." Listen for special guest Moby on the big and beautiful closer "Moonlit Sky." © David Jeffries /TiVo
