In 2013, the sky has been the limit for glistening pop-house producer DJ Antoine. No, really — it’s been all about releasing and touring his seventh studio album, ‘Sky Is the Limit’, which kept him plenty busy in the first half of the year.

A season of summer festival-hopping was no less demanding, taking in Donauinselfest in Vienna, We Love Asia in Kuala Lumpur and Spirit of London in São Paulo, amongst others. 
“I really enjoyed performing that much at big festivals.

I just love to be with my fans and really appreciate their great support,” says Antoine. “It has been an awesome year so far. I was able to travel a lot around the world, got to know other cultures closer and met a lot of interesting people.”
