Friday Flashback: ATB – Movin’ Melodies

| October 15th, 2010 | No Comments »

He’s been a dance music icon since his first album “Movin’ Melodies” hit in 1999.  Even if you’re laughing at this post now, in the trendy year of 2010, I guarantee that when you hear the 10 iconic notes of the melody in 9PM (Till I Come) [lol - you just counted on your fingers!] you know who the producer is. We’re talking, of course, about the legendary ATB.

“Dance”, André Tanneberger’s first single as Sequential One, was finally released in February 1993 and this was followed by other, Techno-oriented releases. André was slowly setting up his own little studio.

André, however, did not make his real breakthrough until “9 PM (Till I Come)”, which was released under the name ATB on Kontor Records. This explosive mix of lively dance beats and the unique, characteristic ATB guitar became a massive hit throughout the world. André also entered all important international charts with his follow-up singles “Don’t Stop” and “Killer”, a cover of the Adamski classic, and the success of the three hits inspired him to record his first album “Movin’ Melodies”. André, however, has had a great deal of success not only as a producer but also as a remixer, making tracks by artists such as Moby, William Orbit and A-HA fit for the dance floor..

Here are a few of my favourite ATB tracks from the past 10 years.
