Musical career

André Tanneberger started his music career at the dance music group Sequential One. He was the brain of the group from 1993 to 2002. In 1998, Tanneberger also started a solo project named ATB. His first track under this name was "9pm (Till I Come)", included in the Movin' Melodies album, which topped the United Kingdom music charts in 1999 and is widely regarded as the UK's first trance number one.[2] The track features a guitar riff that became hugely popular. This guitar sound, which he accidentally found while experimenting with a new producing deck[citation needed], became the trademark of his early hits. ATB continues to evolve and change with every album. His current style involves more vocals and varied sounds, with frequent pianos.

Despite only releasing a few more singles in the UK, namely "Don't Stop!" (No.3, 300,000 copies sold[citation needed]) and "Killer" (No.4, 200,000 copies sold[citation needed]), he still regularly releases music in his native Germany and in other parts of Europe, where he has scored big hits such as "I Don't Wanna Stop" and his cover of Olive's 1996 hit "You're Not Alone".

Two Worlds (released in 2000) was his second studio album. It is a two-disc album based upon the concept of different types of music for different moods. The titles of the two CDs are: "The World of Movement" and "The Relaxing World". This album includes two songs featuring Heather Nova: "Love Will Find You" and "Feel You Like a River." Also the song "Let U Go" features on the "The World of Movement" disc featuring the vocals of Roberta Carter Harrison from the Canadian pop band Wild Strawberries.

His third album, Dedicated, was released in 2002. It includes two top hits: "Hold You" and "You're Not Alone". The title refers to the September 11 attacks. In 2003, ATB released Addicted To Music, which included hits such as "I Don't Wanna Stop" and "Long Way Home". The same year, ATB's first DVD was released, Addicted To Music DVD. It featured all his videos, a tour documentary and photographs.

ATB's hits "Ecstasy" and "Marrakech" came from the album No Silence (2004). "Marrakech" was also included on the soundtrack for the film, Mindhunters.

In 2005, ATB released Seven Years, a compilation album of 20 songs, including all his singles. Additionally, Seven Years includes six new tracks, including the single "Humanity" and the 2005 rework of "Let U Go". Many of ATB's recent albums have featured vocals from Roberta Carter Harrison, singer for the Canadian band Wild Strawberries.

His next album, Trilogy, was released on 4 May 2007. The single "Justify" was released from The DJ 4 in the Mix compilation. The single "Renegade" was released on 12 April 2007, and features Heather Nova. The third single was "Feel Alive", released in July the same year.

In a Trance.nu interview on 11 May 2007, ATB considered "Don't Stop!" to be his worst production to date, and he no longer stands by it, due to it being similar to his first hit, "9pm (Till I Come)".[3]

He is married to Anna Tanneberger, and dedicated the song "A Dream About You", off the album Trilogy to her.

His latest album, Future Memories, was released on 5 May 2009. The single, "What About Us", was already promoted and released. He performed in Austin, Texas at the Travis County Expo Center, as a part of Massive Intent's Future Fest.
