New York - International DJ and electronic producer Markus Schulz sat down and chatted with Digital Journal prior to his set at "Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro" on September 1.
"I am happy to be in New York at Electric Zoo," he said, about performing at the Riverside stage at the electronic music festival in Randall's Island Park. "The weather is amazing."

On the impact of technology in electronic music, Schulz said, "I didn't think that technology would make it this easy and accessible to make tracks. It's crazy. Before, you would have to save up and spend $100,000 to go in the studio to make an album. Nowadays, you just need to find a plug, and plug in your laptop, and you need enough time to crank it out. It's amazing."
Schulz continued, "Through that, technology has made a lot of changes in the sounds as well. A lot of creative artists and people that would normally never be able to have an outlet for their creativity are now able to because of technology being as advanced as it is today."
On his daily use of technology, Schulz said, "I am plugged in all the time. I'm never unplugged. Even when I am on an airplane I have my headphones on and I'm working. It's crazy. When I have a melody in my head, sometimes, I would wake up in the middle of the night, and I would open up my laptop and I would start plugging the notes in and what I'm hearing in my head."
Schulz praised his fans for being "amazing," especially the trance fans. "I've been doing this for a while, but the trance fans are the most loyal and most passionate fans," he admitted.
Schulz complimented his musical muse Adina Butar. "Adina is rocking it right now. She is actually back in Miami. She has been directing music videos, and now she is directing for some other artists as well."

His plans for the future include a new Dakota album in November, and next summer, he will release a vocal trance album, which he revealed will include collaborations with such songstresses as Emma Hewitt and Adina Butar.
Schulz defined success as being able to connect with his fans.
