ATB’s Greatest Hits, At Least According to Me

Other than BT, ATB is one of my all time favorite artists and DJs. Last month he released a new album and I found myself going back through his discog listening to songs I haven’t heard in ages. Since 1999 he’s introduced countless people (including me) to trance and house, creating several classics along the way.

I thought it would be fun to share what I feel to be some of his best work (one song from each album), starting from the top and working our way back in time.

Face To Face (feat. Stanfour)

Contact (2014). Digging that guitar!

Move On (feat. JanSoon)

Distant Earth (2011). Good buildup to 1:04.

Behind (pres. Flanders)

Future Memories (2009). The raspy vocals from Flanders make this.

Feel Alive

Trilogy (2007). One of those boisterous songs. More guitar too!

Marrakech

No Silence (2004).  Good song to listen to while driving fast down a dirt road in the middle of nowhere.

I Don’t Wanna Stop

Addicted to Music (2003). Classic ATB sound and drums.

You’re Not Alone

Dedicated (2002). More classic ATB melodies.

Let You Go

Two Worlds (2000). Besides 9PM, this is a signature track.

9PM (Till I Come)

Movin’ Melodies (1999). Old school but timeless!

Songs of the Moment – Week of Oct. 2

It’s fall now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stop listening to summer music. Specifically summer clubby music. I realized today that a good percentage of my favourite songs are by Armada Records. I’m not advertising for them or anything – they just have consistently good music in my opinion. Less of that poppy stuff that the Ministry of Sound pushes for sure.

1. Cruising (Steve Murano club mix) – D&K

2. Morgan Page, Sultan + Ned Shepard, and BT – In the Air

3. Dash Berlin & Cerf/Mitiska/Jaren – Man On The Run

4. W&W – Three O’Clock (Marcus Maison & Will Dragen remix)
