We go backstage with Markus Schulz and we talk about his beginnings in music, his connection to Romania and how to pull a successful open-close set.
It was a pleasure to have Markus as my first international guest. He was really supportive considering that this was actually the first episode of the podcast recorded ever.
It took me some while to publish it, because it was recorded in november 2018, but the subjects are evergreen and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the talk.
If you’re interested in just a particular subject, I put the timecodes down below. Enjoy!
