After months of voting and debate over the biggest movers and shakers in the world of dance music in 2008, the announcement of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs is imminent.

This coming Wednesday, the countdown will take place at the world famous Ministry of Sound nightclub in London, featuring a star-studded entourage of DJs, including Markus Schulz.

Markus, who holds a bi-monthly residency at the venue with The Gallery, is delighted to be part of the lineup.

“It’s a really great honor by DJ Mag to be asked to perform on the night”, says Markus. “I guess it shows that there are many fans around the world who have enjoyed what I have done and the music I have played throughout the year. I am so grateful for all the support they constantly give me.”

Markus is also very pleased the awards ceremony is taking place at Ministry of Sound. “It is like a new home to me now. I think I will look back on 2008 and some of my fondest memories will be from that club. Everything about it – the soundsystem and the clubbers that go there, make it a really special place to play.”

Featuring alongside Markus on the night will be DJs such as Kyau & Albert, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Laurent Garnier and of course the DJ Mag Number 1 DJ for 2008. Entry to the event costs a bargain £5 at the door on the night.

“This night is only possible because of the fans and the people who vote,” adds Markus. “I hope that in some way I can say thanks to them on the night by playing a memorable set.”
