Chris Forward joined forces with his production partner Mace V for their new track, called Next Day,featuring the vocals of Eva Kade. The original is held in their typical progressive but driving sound while Michael Retouch is pitching up the tempo in his remix, providing a nice uplifting alternative.
Ninth studio album of ATB has been released on Kontor Records label, titled Contact.
“Contact is a musical collection of my experiences and travels from roughly the last three years, since my last album Distant Earth.” ATB explains. “Ive covered a lot of miles again in this phase, sought out contact with fantastic, inspiring people, which made the choice of album title almost inevitable. It’s the contact, the interaction with the fans which makes my music what it is, especially when it comes to performing. It doesn’t matter whether I’m playing a club gig or a festival, it is really important for me to get close to my crowd and engage with the audience directly. It’s an exchange of emotions and energy, they feel what I feel, I feel what they feel. They are an integral element in what I do and what I have now created in album form.”
26 brand new tracks, presented on 3 CDs has been graced with an impressive array of vocalists, some familiar from earlier ATB releases, others are new recruits such as: Stanfour, Sean Ryan, Boss and Swan, Jan Löchel, Taylr, Vanessa and JES.
