Time Out Dubai has a DJ Markus Schulz interview ahead of his show at Zero Gravity in Dubai on May 13
Markus Schulz, known to his fans as the unicorn slayer (that's a story for another day), will be headlining at the grand opening of Zero Gravity's brand-new beach house on Friday May 13.
Ahead of what quite probably will be another sell-out gig in Dubai, the German-American Dance DJ talks about his first album Watch the World, gives us tips on how to beat jet lag and explains how he gets round doing laundry while on tour.
He’s a big fan of Dubai and the heat
I love it! Everything is nice and clean and it’s a fantastic city to visit. I’m flying in a couple of days early this time to explore a little more than on previous visits.
Being a Miami native, I’m naturally attracted to warm weather, so the climate in the city will definitely be most welcome after a lot of cold days and nights in Europe and the US.
The passion for dance music in Dubai is on the up and I'm really looking forward to coming back and playing at Zero Gravity.
For those of you who come along to the launch of Zero Gravity’s brand-new beach house May 13, expect plenty of melodies, lots of great moments and hopefully a night you will appreciate and remember for some time to come.
Any jet lag tips?
It's usually about finding the closest Starbucks after landing for me (laughs)!
If you're lucky enough to be able to sleep on flights do so. For my job the key to surviving is keeping yourself healthy mentally and physically because the travel involved can be absolutely brutal at times.
But I can't use that as an excuse. Fans are working hard in their own jobs and when they pay to see me with their hard-earned money, they have the right to see me perform at my best.
