The story of DJ and producer Robin Schulz reads like a “one in a million story”. Born in Osnabrück (Germany), he now travels around the world to make his followers happy with his music. He is the epitome of the word "pop phenomenon": It has been a good four years since Robin Schulz's celebrated remix of "Waves (feat. Mr. Probz)" and the global hit "Prayer In C (feat. LillyWood & The Prick) ”for the first time mixed up the tops of the worldwide single charts - half an eternity in the fast-moving dance music cosmos of the 30-year-old artist! With his unique mix of house, electro and pop, the Osnabrück DJ and producer has blossomed into the most successful German music export of the last two decades, who hits the nerve of the times with his celebrated mega hits again and again and brings the audience around the planet to absolute frenzy. After countless top 1 placements in over 20 countries, more than 250 gold and platinum awards as well as billions of streams of his songs and videos, the four-time ECHO award winner is now completely “Uncovered” on his third studio album!  

Robin Schulz "Uncovered": Inspired by the months of filming of his documentary "Robin Schulz - The Movie" published in early 2017, the Lower Saxony hit maker is now opening another chapter in his groundbreaking work. "I'm not really known for giving a lot of interviews," said Robin about the title of his third long player. “For the first time, when I was working on the film, I really spoke intensively about my life and my career. It was during this time that the idea arose to name the current album 'Uncovered'. ”Schulz worked on the tracks for almost 13 months in order to present himself even more multifaceted and stylistically wider on“ Uncovered ”! After the three pre-singles like the platinum-winning David Guetta / Cheat Codes collaboration “Shed A Light”,
