Amintiri viitoare, începând cu 1 mai

DJ-ul meu preferat, ATB, va lansa foarte curând noul său album, intitulat Future Memories. La fel ca şi precedentul, Trilogy, acest material va fi prezentat pe 2 cd-uri, dintre care al doilea va fi ambiental. Am ascultat preview-ul, pe care îl puteţi găsi mai jos, şi pot spune că sună tare bine, ATB desenând aceleaşi peisaje sonice fascinante ca întotdeauna. A apărut şi un prim clip, al piesei What About Us
Mai multe lucruri despre albumul Future Memories aflăm de pe site-ul oficial:

"Hence “Future Memories“ features four tracks which clock in at over 165 beats per minute.  Anyone who thinks this signals a departure into hardcore or techno by ATB would be mistaken. In spite of their high speed, these songs still have that essential ATB soul. Meanwhile, “Future Memories“ also serves up a number of ATB tracks as the fans know and love them – indeed the sound which has won ATB so many loyal fans over the years. The tracks registering over 165 bpm are there to get people to think more deeply about the album, as André explains “controversy makes it more interesting, it gets listeners to engage with the album more intensely“. He’s certainly achieved that with flying colours, judging by the heated debate in forums in advance of the release already.

“Future Memories“ contains 26 tracks on two CDs. One with driving, melodic club music, the other in a more ambient style. “On my other albums I used the 2nd CD to show my fans another side of ATB. Same again with “Future Memories“. I love ambient music, love listening to it and producing songs in the genre, I find it enjoyable and relaxing. Most of these songs were created at home in a more intimate environment“ ATB points out.

It goes without saying that André has collaborated with other artists for the new album. This has been one of his trademarks over the past decade. This time, there are songs with Roberta Carter Harrison, Haley and Josh Gallahan, no strangers to connoisseurs of earlier ATB records. Betsy Larkin and Aruna are two brand new guests on the album. Fans of ATB’s instrumental tracks will also find plenty to keep them happy.
