Robin Schulz (born 28 April 1987)[3] is a German record producer, musician and DJ. Most of his songs make use of electric guitar riffs. On 4 February, 2014, he released the first single from his debut album, a remix of "Waves" by Dutch hip hop artist Mr Probz. This remix later received a nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.[4] His follow-up single, released 6 June, 2014, was a remix of the Lilly Wood and the Prick track "Prayer in C" from their 2010 album Invincible Friends. Both remixes have charted in many European countries and the United States, leading to international recognition for Schulz. He co-founded Lausbuben Records with Daniel Bruns and Christopher Noble.

Robin Schulz remixed the song "Waves" by Mr Probz in a more up-tempo fashion, with the remix being released as a single on 4 February 2014 in North America and 7 February 2014 in Europe. The song became a worldwide hit, topping the charts in Austria, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, and peaking within the top five of the charts in Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Ireland and Italy. An alternate version of the Schulz remix was released on 11 November 2014, featuring additional vocals from American rapper T.I. and American singer Chris Brown. Schulz released a remix of the song "Prayer in C" by Lilly Wood and the Prick on 6 June 2014. The remix topped the charts in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. This track also reached the top 10 in Australia and New Zealand and charted in Canada and United States. He released "Willst Du" as the third single from the album on 22 August 2014. The song has charted in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. On 24 October 2014, "Sun Goes Down" was released as the fourth single from the album, featuring vocals from British singer Jasmine Thompson. The song has peaked to number 2 in Germany and number 3 in Austria, Poland[5] and Switzerland. The song has also charted in Finland, France and Sweden.

2015: Sugar[edit]

After the success of "Prayer in C" and "Waves", Schulz released the lead single from his second studio album titled "Headlights" featuring vocals from American singer and songwriter Ilsey. The song was a mild success in Europe. Schulz later released "Sugar" featuring vocals from Canadian singer Francesco Yates. The song was a success in Europe as well, with moderate success in the US and Canada. Schulz released his second album of the same name on September 25, 2015.
