Style:

Best known for: 
“ATB concerts.”
Tune of the year:

From: 
"I’m a producer and DJ. Do you think I’m the right person to ask this question?”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
C’mon... just because some dance tracks are successful it doesn’t mean that dance is pop now. Is it that bad when a lot of people like electronic music?”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
"I would love to be an eagle as it must be wonderful to spread your wings and fly! This was the reason why I did my flying license in the past.”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“To be honest, I never did it! I think that’s the answer!”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
"I think everybody's got the duty to speak [out] about drugs, doesn’t matter if it’s a DJ or a guest who’s doing a regular office job during the week.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“Haägen Dazs ice cream. But I'm always on a diet!”

For the first time this year, enduring Top 100 fave ATB is to take his awesome concert tour outside of Europe. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City will all play host to the show that has taken much of the year to prepare.

“I’ve been touring in the US for 15 years now and now is the time to give them the full ATB package,” enthuses the veteran. “These shows will be much more complex than the shows I did before because it’s electronic music played with 100% live musicians. That is so important for me. I searched a long time for the right musicians and the right team.”

Stating that the visual aspect so dominant at many EDM shows is not his priority — rather the shows will be all about showcasing electronic music’s range of emotions — André Tanneberger has also just released his latest album, 'Contact'.

“It has a lot of interesting collaborations but not just big name collaborations. Instead I love to present fresh people who really deserve to get presented because their voices are fantastic.”
