Trance music consists of variety of synth sounds, electronica, danceable beats, subtle buildup, and breakdown with instrumentals and DJ skills.
To stand out in the scene what seem to be imitations of static and repetition, Andre Tanneberger, better known as ATB, knew what it took to dominate LA dance floors on Oct. 5 at the Hollywood Palladium, with his musical persona.
ATB is one of the most famous producers and musicians for electronic dance music (EDM), especially in the trance sector.
When performing live, ATB is in complete control of the audience taking them on a journey that passes through beautiful melodies, intense build-ups, and epic drops.
He took center stage and created an exceptional performance.
This was not ATB’s ordinary DJ set; it was an experience comprised of a band including a drummer, guitarist, bassist, and keyboarder.
ATB was joined with singers who were featured on his previous albums and shared his exclusive tracks from his forthcoming album Contact, out this December.
Artists who preformed included Ramona Nerra “Never give up,” Sean Ryan “All I Need is you,” Jon Lochel “What About Us” and “Move On.” Tiff Lacey performed “My Everything,” as well as special performances by JES and Stanfour.
He played his famous hits including: “9pm,” “Distant Earth,” “Ecstasy,” “Let U Go,” “I Don’t Wanna Stop,” and “Apollo Road.”
Cris Novoa, a longtime fan of ATB stated, “ The collection of artists that ATB collaborated with and playing his new tracks completely astonished me. The performance was amazing and brought so much euphoric.”
ATB guaranteed his live tour would be an exceptional show and unlike any other performance.
CSUSB student Nadia Kahil believed that this event was unique and extraordinary in contrast to any other event she has partaken in.
“The experience was amazing. Having a band with the DJ and performing the music live was inspiring. Knowing the music wasn’t pre-recorded made ATB standout amongst all other DJs I’ve seen. It made my night above and beyond what I expected,” said Oscar Laddaga.
ATB proved that his creativity does not stop in the DJ booth; he went in front of his audience and presented a guitar solo that was unexpected.
He kicked off his tour in San Francisco and is currently heading to the big cities of Chicago and New York, which is his last stop.
LA holds events for the biggest electronic music artists including Kaskade, Deadmau5, Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin and included ATB’s live concert, that took over LA’s EDM scene.
The Hollywood Palladium was the perfect venue located on Sunset Blvd. The venue gave the entire audience a great view of the musicians and of course ATB.
ATB has always been close to his fans and his live concert proves it.
The music was presented to the fans live directly with energy, passion, and bringing an amazing set.
His sets serve as a universal language for his audience around the world.
