German superstar ATB’s marriage to wife Laura this summer, who he honeymooned with in Greece, marked yet another chapter in his ongoing success. Almost twenty years since his global smash ‘9PM (Till I Come)’ (insert joke about wedding night here), it’s Laura who he credits with helping him avoid the industry pitfalls that have claimed so many now-forgotten names who rose up alongside him during trance’s heyday.
Andre Tanneberger, to use his given name, is still a globe-trotting headliner, touring the world from America to Eastern Europe and headlining huge events such as S2S in Manchester and numerous Awake events across his home country. These days it’s balanced with his private life. There have been weekends off to savour in South Germany and Italy, the sign of a man who knows that his reputation was assured long ago. Following up 2017’s ‘neXt’, fans will also be ecstatic to know that for the rest of the year he’ll be working on a new album. Expect this in the early part of 2019.
