America’s Best DJ returns winning title to Markus Schulz in this year’s voting
Kaskade, America’s favorite DJ of 2013, will be handing off the title to this year’s champion, Markus Schulz. Though a German native, Schulz is now based out of Miami, Florida. The trance legend splits his time between constant touring in support of his most recent Scream 2 and balancing his role as one half of New World Punx alongside Ferry Corsten. Schulz’s win comes as no surprise as voters of the Best DJ Award have previously favored him in the past; the two DJs have handed the winning title of ‘America’s Best DJ’ back and forth since 2011 when Kaskade first took the crown home, making this Schulz’s second win in three years.
In response to his 2014 win, Schulz stated, “I have never been in this industry for the sole purpose of winning awards, and my biggest accomplishment in life is having the ability to connect and entertain those who believe in me and what I do on a daily basis.” As per tradition, the Scream 2 producer will be honored in Las Vegas’ Marquee Nightclub for an award presentation and closing party, scheduled for October 12th.
As for the rest of the runner ups, DJ Times and Pioneer have unveiled the Top 10 results as follows:
1. Markus Schulz
6. Steve Aoki
7. Dillon Francis
8. Claude VonStroke
9. DJ Dan
