Washington DC nightclubs, bars and lounges are a playground for recording artists, politicians, students, athletes, tourists and more. Overshadowed by destinations like NY, LA and Miami, it’s easy to see how DC nightlife has flown under the radar. However, many of the world’s biggest names party in and return to The District.

We’ve popped bottles with Drake, done shots with FC Barcelona, had David Guetta name Glow the best party in the world, gotten ‘Lost’ with Miles and Frank Lapidus, done happy hour with Donald Rumsfeld, the list goes on. With the third largest college population in the nation, the DC crowd knows how to get down.

Last year, his ‘ATB The DJ 5′ included a rewired version of his famous track. The accompanying tour took him to clubs all over the world.

Just another regular year in the life of ATB

 

Bio

ATB (born André Tanneberger on February 26, 1973 in Freiberg, Saxony, Germany) is a German DJ, musician, and producer of electronic dance music. According to the official world DJ rankings governed by DJ Magazine, ATB is currently ranked #25, and on the The DJ List he is ranked #4.

Musical career

Andre Tannenberger started his music career at the dance music group Sequential One. He was the brain of the group from 1993 to 2002. In 1998, Andre also started a solo project named ATB. His first track under this name was “9pm (Till I Come)”, included in the Movin’ Melodies album, which topped the United Kingdom music charts in 1999 and is widely regarded as the UK’s first trance number one. The track features a guitar riff which became hugely popular. This guitar sound, which he accidentally found while experimenting with a new producing deck, became the trademark of his early hits. ATB continues to evolve and change with every album. His current style involves more vocals and varied sounds, with frequent pianos.

Despite only releasing a few more singles in the UK, namely “Don’t Stop!” (No.3, 300,000 copies sold) and “Killer” (No.4, 200,000 copies sold), he still regularly releases music in his native Germany and in other parts of Europe, where he has scored big hits such as “I Don’t Wanna Stop” and his cover of Olive’s 1996 hit “You’re Not Alone”.

Two Worlds (released in 2000) was his second studio album. It is a two-disc album based upon the concept of different types of music for different moods. The titles of the two CDs are: “The World of Movement” and “The Relaxing World”. This album includes two songs featuring Heather Nova: “Love Will Find You” and “Feel You Like a River.” Also the song “Let U Go” features on the “The World of Movement” disc featuring the vocals of Roberta Carter Harrison from the Canadian pop band Wild Strawberries.

His third album, Dedicated, was released in 2002. It includes two top hits: “Hold You” and “You’re Not Alone”. The title refers to the 9/11 events, so the album is dedicated to that tragedy. In 2003 ATB released Addicted To Music, which included hits such as “I Don’t Wanna Stop” and “Long Way Home”. The same year, ATB’s first DVD was released, Addicted To Music DVD. It features all his videos, a tour documentary, photos and many more.

ATB’s latest hits include uplifting “Ecstasy” and chilling “Marrakech”, both from the album No Silence (released in 2004) and also released as singles. “Marrakech” was also included on the soundtrack for the movie Mindhunters.

In 2005, ATB released Seven Years, a compilation of 20 songs, including all his singles. Additionally, Seven Years includes six new tracks, including the single “Humanity” and the 2005 rework of “Let U Go”. Many of ATB’s recent albums have featured vocals from Roberta Carter Harrison, singer for the Canadian band Wild Strawberries.

His latest album, Trilogy, was released on May 4, 2007. The single “Justify” was released from The DJ 4 in the Mix compilation. The single “Renegade” was released on April 12, and features Heather Nova. The third single was “Feel Alive”, released in July the same year.

In a Trance.nu interview on May 11, 2007. ATB considered Don’t Stop! to be his worst production to date, and he no longer stands by it anymore, due to it having to be similar to his first hit, 9pm (Till I Come).

André is married to Anna Tanneberger, and dedicated the song “A Dream About You”, off the album Trilogy to her.

Privately, ATB is known to be very good friends with trance producer Sash! and prefers listening to chill out trance rather than upbeat and vocal trance. Dontstop.co.uk, 2008, http://www.dontstop.co.uk/vThree/didyouknow.php He is also known to be a close friend of Michael Cretu – a mastermind of the Enigma musical project.
