Yesterday Markus Schulz posted a special message about his 11 hour open to close set experience at the Guvernment in Toronto on his website. I posted it in full below and I highly suggest that you read it as it is a special tribute to one of his favourite clubs that has supported his career throughout the years:
"Hello friends,Checking in with you following a ridiculously hectic summer with a couple of treats, in an effort to say thank you.Throughout my career, I am privileged to have had the opportunity to build my legacy at some of the world’s greatest and iconic clubs – venues held in the highest esteem and provide crucial building blocks towards the scene we love.And one of those clubs lies in the Canadian city of Toronto; quite simply, The Guvernment.As my name began to spread beyond the years of local residencies in Phoenix and Miami, Toronto was among the first cities worldwide to embrace me and what I represented. Through the early Armada nights, they made me feel like one of their own – something that continued through their magical Labour of Love events. Alongside the main Guvernment room, the amazing Koolhaus next door played home to some of the most important nights in my DJ life.When doors opened for me to be able to perform in the domain I love the most – the open to close solo sets – I wanted them to take place in the venues which would do them justice – and The Guvernment fit the bill. And when they finally happened, they exceeded the expectations of all of us.Sadly, earlier this summer, it was announced that The Guvernment complex would close its doors for good this coming January, and a cherished piece of clubbing land would cease. Fortunately, I was given the chance to pay tribute to the people of Toronto, and The Guvernment itself, with one final solo set, and going for the duration record.So as a thank you to the people of Toronto, and also to everyone worldwide for your support throughout another year, this is a small way of giving back and saying thanks.I present you the entire set recorded from The Guvernment, and on top of that, I’m also giving away my much requested Dakota track Doors Open – all 22 minutes of it. Hope that you guys will enjoy the treats, and that you will share and embrace the love and gratitude for The Guvernment nightclub, the promoters, staff and DJs who graced the decks, and the people of Toronto who made it special.With love,Markus"
