Every year, DJ Times magazine and Pioneer DJ team up to find ‘America’s Best DJ’. Since it’s inception in 2006, the poll offers a list of 100 nominees and voters get to choose who they think is the best DJ in the USA. Having won the title already back in 2012, Marcus Schultz comes through to take it home once more.
This year, we see a pretty diverse group of DJ’s in the top 10. With Mad Decent’s Diplo as the runner up followed by A-Trak repping Fools Gold, the list goes on to make way for long time favorites such as Bassnectar, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, and Dillon Francis. The awards ceremony will take place at Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas on October 12.
“Receiving this news is such an incredible honor,” says Schulz, “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.
“I’d like to thank everyone at DJ Times and Pioneer DJ for their continued support, all of the promoters who facilitate my passion in the clubs and festivals throughout North America, those who sacrifice in helping me achieve my dreams, and most of all, the fans, because without you, none of this is possible. Forever grateful for your love and support, and I look forward on our continued journey into the future.”
