Who is ATB?
As both songwriter and producer, Andre Tanneberger has been living in two worlds for quite some time. One is the world of electronic music, where he has created extraordinary, melodious club tracks and played countless DJ sets all over the globe. Worldwide fame came courtesy of numerous top ten hits such as “9 PM (Till I Come)”, “Don’t Stop”, “Killer”, “Let U Go” and “Ecstasy”. The other world is an atmospheric domain – smoother songs to lose yourself in, where you can begin to dream.
On this, his seventh album ATB has succeeded in combining the two worlds, without intermingling them unnecessarily. “Trilogy” provides the electronic and melodious ATB sound blended with a unique rock and pop crossover flavour on the first CD. The second CD, on the other hand, offers the listener 14 super smooth tracks. “Every album should have its own soul and a golden thread leading through all the songs. However, you only really feel the soul if you listen to all the songs together. If you mix up the faster and slower songs, that isn’t going to work,” explains Andre.
The title of the new album shows that ATB has not broken completely with past conventions, but still has an eye on his past. Two songs on earlier albums were named “Trilogy”. The third version on the current album is not only the eponymous song, but also the concluding link of the chain. There is also a welcome return for a world famous international artist with whom Andre has collaborated in days gone by – the new song with Heather Nova turned out so well, that it has been chosen as the first single of the new album.
ATB also worked with Jennifer Karr, Jan Loechel, Jeppe Riddervold and Karen Ires on new album tracks. You can sense the creativity that has emerged from a concentrated phase in the studio. The many nights he spent with his team and best friend “Rhudee”, designated co-producer, proved truly inspiring. Andre points out: “We had so many songs left that we could have filled another album as well.” Having patently enjoyed his time in the studio, Andre is similarly looking forward to presenting the result to his fans. An eight gig Germany tour will be followed by shows in America, Asia, across Europe and Australia.

Who are Second Sun?
First, Second Sun conquered the trance world with their hit collaboration with Paul Van Dyk, “CRUSH”. Three singles on his label Vandit (“Empire”, “The Spell” and “Playground”) helped solidify their rep, with spins from the worlds top DJs and spots on countless compilations.
Then, they hit the house scene in a major way with one the biggest tracks of Miami’s WMC 2006: their remix of Queen’s “Another one Bites the Dust” (Positiva/EMI Records). Then, Antoine was asked to sing on Sharam’s “PARTY ALL THE TIME”, which became the biggest dance hit of the year. They also did a remix of the track, which was played on Pete Tong’s “Essential Selection” Radio 1 show only 24 hours after its completion. Then, the remix requests came pouring in. Their remixes for Sander Kleinenberg’s “This is not Miami”, the Shapeshifters’ “Sensitivity” and Seamus Haji’s “Last night a DJ saved my life” also ended up in the crates of the world’s leading house DJs. These releases helped audiences worldwide realize how versatile these Miami-based boys really are. No wonder URB magazine has dubbed the duo “clubland’s newest superstars”.
Now, they have affected the dance scene in a new way: with their mind-blowing live show! Unprecedented stage presence, live keyboards an especially Antoine’s live vocals have made Second Sun America’s hottest live dance act, bringing an almost rock-show-like feel to packed clubs and festivals.
In 2009, three giant Second Sun singles were released on Ultra Records: “Golden”, “Fire and Water” and “We own the night”. In 2010, their debut album “The Lost Weekend” will be released and the boys will keep pushing the boundaries of dance music with their acclaimed live show.
