German-based producer / DJ Robin Schulz is making noise thanks to a collection of viral tracks that have seen some international success. He's becoming a household name in multiple countries and is spreading fast everywhere else, so we thought it was overdue to do a Robin Schulz catchup post to bring readers up to speed through some of his best remixes and originals, including his new music video and the announcement of his first US tour ever.
First we are starting with the release that kicked things off, his remix of "Waves" originally by Dutch soul singer Mr. Probz released late last year. The song hit #1 in too many countries to name and has seen well over 100+ million plays online collectively. He highlights the smooth vocals and guitar line perfectly arranging things while speeding things up leaving us with quite a hit. Watch the music video below.
His next unstoppable hit takes on French indie band Lilly Wood & The Prick and their single "Prayer In C" which was originally from 2010, but turned into an international hit once Robin remixed it this year. He highlights the vocals and guitar strumming leaving us with one of his best tracks to date. This one also has international success and has racked up over 70+ million plays online collectively. Watch the music video below.
On top of these remixes he has managed to find time to release his debut album Prayer which features some of his best remixes over the past year on top of some originals. The lead original single from the album is "Sun Goes Down" which features UK singer Jasmine Thompson and is quite the slice of deep house perfection featuring one of the best uses of a saxophone in house music I have heard. The song has been brought to life as Robin's latest official music video helping enjoy the perfect blend of organic and electronic elements. Listen and watch below. You can pick up this single apart of Robin Schulz's debut album Prayer. Enjoy!

San Francisco producer trio The M Machine expand from their previous electro-house styling they are known for that's been recently displayed on the original creation “Superflat” along with a world class remix of Matt Zo’s “Lucid Dream”. Their brand new single “Just Like” is driven mainly by a rugged bassline that’s subject to dashes of tech-house aesthetics and tribal house beats. The sexually charged vocals laced on top compliment the track perfectly and will have you grooving from start to finish. Can we expect this as a permanent change for The M Machine's future? Stream below until we find out about a release. Enjoy
