With his debut single “9 PM (Till I Come)” released under the project name ATB, André Tanneberger
made the big leap forward to become one of the top acts in the international Dance scene.
The parents of André Tanneberger, who was born in 1973 in the then GDR town of Freiberg
(Thuringia), left the old East Germany in 1984 to try their luck in the West. On his weekends at the end
of the Eighties André often went to the Tarm Center in Bochum, where he is the resident DJ today, to
listen to DJ sets from Thomas Kukula. In 1992 he decided to make music himself. Equipped with an
Amiga computer and a small synthesizer his first compositions were produced in his bedroom.
Through a friend he finally met Thomas Kukula a.k.a. General Base, who was clearly impressed by
André’s first experiments and offered him the use of his studio to put the finishing touches to the songs
he had prepared. In the studio, next to a lot of other equipment, André spotted a synthesizer called
Sequential Pro One, which gave him the idea for the name of his first project Sequential One.
“Dance”, André Tanneberger’s first single as Sequential One, was finally released in February 1993
and this was followed by other, Techno-oriented releases. André was slowly setting up his own little
studio. André, however, did not make his real breakthrough until “9 PM (Till I Come)”, which was
released under the name ATB on Kontor Records. This explosive mix of lively dance beats and the
unique, characteristic ATB guitar became a massive hit throughout the world. André also entered all
important international charts with his follow-up singles “Don’t Stop” and “Killer”, a cover of the
Adamski classic, and the success of the three hits inspired him to record his first album “Movin’
Melodies”. André, however, has had a great deal of success not only as a producer but also as a
remixer, making tracks by artists such as Moby, William Orbit and A-HA fit for the dance floor.
For his second studio album “Two Worlds” ATB had a very special idea. He wanted to produce both a
Dance and a Chill-out album. So, what could be more obvious than a double album! CD1 is a
digression into the Dance world while CD 2 contains unusual, relaxing sounds à la “Café Del Mar”. For
“Two Worlds” André was assisted by the crème de la crème of pop music. Heather Nova added to two
ATB songs with her unmistakable voice and ATB’s great influence Michael Cretu a.k.a. Enigma also
contributed his production skills (“Enigmatic Encounters”). The second single release “The Fields Of
Love”, a co-operation with York, is a magnificent combination of the different musical influences of
ATB’s new single “Let U Go” is sung by the female lead vocalist of the “Wild Strawberries”, a
Canadian rock band. It is fascinating how the different musical genres go together so perfectly. “I’m a
lateral thinker. I also like trying out weird things, I try to mix different styles,” explains André.
