© artist's ownWe all know Markus Schulz, the new face of the progressive scene but what is it like to be married to him and What challenges does that present. Read on to find out!

Markus Schulz has come from virtual no mans land to popular dj in a few short years. His Global DJ Broadcast is one of the biggest US radio shows and he is certainly getting bigger but what does his wife think about him?, what opportunities has it opened for her? and What does the future hold for her?

So I Married A DJ - Part 2 - Heather Schulz

i:Vibes: Were you exposed to music growing up?

A: My parents always listened to music. Especially music from the big band era. Mitch Miller, The Dorseys,


i:Vibes: What did you listen to do growing up in terms of music? Do you think it had any barring on what you are doing today?

A: When I was 12 I really started listening to the radio. I was entertained not only by the music itself but also by the radio personalities hosting the various shows. I think that had a real effect on me.


i:Vibes: Did you have any indication that you would get into the music business? When did you decide this is what I want to do?

A: I really didn't have any intention of going into music, I was going to college to study politics. Then I met Markus and got involved and nterested in what he was doing and as our relationship grew, my involvement in helping him grew.


i:Vibes: You ran a label, do you still run it?

A: Right now our label, Plastik Records, is on hold. Markus is moving in a new direction and we're deciding if it is time to start completely fresh or to try to re-invent the label. There are other projects we're getting involved
in so Plastik's future is on hold for potentially another label


i:Vibes: How have your opportunities changed since meeting Markus?

A: My world is completely different from what I had planned. I had gone to University with the intention of studying politics and going into foreign policy.

But at this point, I've met so many amazing people and gone to wonderful places. I'm doing something I love. Working on the radio show, helping Markus with his mix cd and releases, not to mention being Alexander's mother. It is a very exciting time in our lives and we are very grateful. When I first got involved in the music with Markus there really were not a lot of women actively involved in it. Now, everyone is a "team" with their
spouse.


i:Vibes: Do you find that the public has perceptions of a deejay’s wife? Do you feel this is good or bad?

A: I think the public doesn't expect the deejay to be married. They all expect him to have a girlfriend if any attachment at all. Then there is the "groupie" issues. They are always going to be around. For some deejays it may be an issue, luckily it isn't for us. but to get back to your question, I think the public finds married deejays a bit of a novelty. It is new. They are still getting used to the fact their musical heroes have deep, long-lasting connections. But they should be glad. This same deep connection helps them to make the music they do, to be where they are supposed to be. Someone is there helping them and making sure they are all
good.


i:Vibes: What the hardest part about being married to a dj?

A: I really can't think of a hard part. Since I don't know how it is being married to anyone else I have no basis for comparison. I guess if I had to pick something difficult it would be the traveling. I miss him when he is away, but he calls a lot and people email me when they see him perform someplace and tell me what they thought of him.


i:Vibes: What the best part about being married to a dj?

A: You know, the best part is being in the middle of the dance floor when he plays a track he has made and everyone around me just goes off. And he looks at me and I see how happy he is. That is the best part, seeing him so
happy with his life.


i:Vibes: Are you comfortable with your husband’s new found fame worldwide? What has it changed?

A: Nothing really has changed for me. He is still Markus and I'm still Heather and at the end of the day we are still the Schulz family. We have the same house, drive the same car, do the same things. I'm still washing the laundry and he is still in his studio making music. We like it this way. Fame changes people, I certainly hope that doesn't happen to us in any way


i:Vibes: If you could change anything about Markus’s schedule, dj dates or anything, What would you change?

A: More dj gigs!!!! He loves to dj and I know he loves going out to play for new people. That is what I'd like to see, more dj gigs.


i:Vibes: Do you DJ? Who is better Markus or You?

A: Markus is a dj. I, given enough time, can mix records together, but I've only been at it for a short time. He is definitely better. I could never
hope to achieve his level of skill.


i:Vibes: Do you give Markus pointers on anything?

A: Nope, nothing


i:Vibes: Most people see you as the press for Global DJ Broadcast, did you do it because you wanted to or for other reasons? What does the job entail?

A: I do it because Markus needs me to do it. We do everything as a team so when Global DJ Broadcast started it was never a question of me being involved or not, I just was. As far as what I do for the show...I do the promotion, I get the guest sets from the djs.


i:Vibes: If you go with Markus to a gig, Where are you most likely to be? 1.The DJ Booth 2.The VIP room 3.The dance floor? Or a few of the three?

A: Either the dj booth or the dance floor.


i:Vibes: Do you find that people recognize you more often now that Markus has gone big time?

A: Not really, people were always nice to me and I try to show the same respect. There are just more people now.


i:Vibes: In the future, what would you like to do music wise?

A: We've got so many opportunities right now it is hard to think about anything else. I guess I just want to see Markus continue on the path he is on, making great music and playing for as many people as possible.


i:Vibes: What does the future hold for you?

A: Hopefully a new car!


We would like to thank Heather for her time for this interview and we wish her and Markus all the best in the future.
