    Final resolutions





    Here is extended radio version with lyrics:



    This debacle should be released via brand new label 'ATBeats' founded by Andre himself. That means ATB breaks out of dependence of Kontor Records after those years of their collective contract. ATB wanted to run his own label named 'Bloom Records' since 2010 but due to his workload it couldn't be possible to realize this idea.

    Oh God why ATB? Actually, this sounds like the "trance" I'd listen to on Monstercat. Sounds a bit generic.

    Sad to hear this. Really sad. If people who were my age when he released his earlier albums and thought they were cheesy or whatever i wonder what they think of this. I'm just asking myself sometimes if its just me getting old and dont "understand" the new sound or is music just getting dumber and dumber?

    Oh don't get Monstercat involved here. The label encompasses diverse group of genres and is home for many talented new artists.

    That being said, this single from ATB is far from what I have expected and I'll just skip it
    If you are free in your dreams, then why don't you go to places you always wanted to go?

    No, wait, don't get me wrong. I like Monstercat, my comment was because of how ATB sounds now, and there's some tracks in Monstercat in the Trance genre that remind me of this.
    I listen to Monstercat a lot and I think it's an amazing opportunity for new artists, I love almost all of their content, their trance part just isn't the strongest imo, and I did a bit of a "harsh" comparison.

    To my true ATB Family... This is very important to me. I write this comment because I read the comments on Flash-X and of course that can't be all just good. But I don't understand the critics that I'm doing EDM from now on. That's nonsense! I'm still into melodies, emotions and my own signature style when it comes to atb productions. That's the past and will ever be. Flash X is just another track I love and like to play in my DJ sets. I like the energy of the track. That doesn't mean that I'm not into my style anymore. You know that I always change my sounds and thanks God I'm not sounding like 1997 anymore, like some of you demand. And I want clarify one more thing: After 20 years I'm not doing the music to have more success and just my ego! I hate this "he is going commercial" discussion. What the hell is commercial?? I'm still doing the music from my heart and that's it! I love doing the ambient stuff as well and you'll see in future productions and on my next album and Btw you can hear it at my gigs. So please calm down and stop to label my music EDM! OK..in the end EDM means electronic dance music.. The bad thing about it is, that it's just labeled these days to hard soulless hands up trash a lot of people like! But this is just my opinion to clarify that! That's my statement after a really hard beginning of 2015 for me healtwise and I'm so glad to be able to be on the road again and I hope to see you soon at one of my next gigs. I'm sure the real ATB family is always open for a new ATB Sound and some experiments... Andre
    At least, I am happy to hear/read that Andre doesn't go off his downtempo productions
    which are the only stuff from him what I am truly looking forward to right now

    To complete this thread I forgot to post this little studio 'making of' video:

    Weird. Not sure why he had to write that. Why does he care? Its a mystery to me also how pld prodcuers cant hear how shitty, generic and formulaic this style is.

    To the true ATB... This is also very important to me. I write this comment because i read your comments on Flash-X about our comments. My issues is not that you're producing "EDM". It's that it is utterly shite EDM. Some EDM, or whatever you prefer to call it, can be enjoyable. This is just plain weak. But i understand ones desire to stay relevant... Nangle

    I mean ATBs dance productions have always been a bit on the commercial and cheesy side, but he still had a pretty unique sound, this just doesn't sound unique, it sounds like most other stuff. Ofcourse he has to do what he wants, but seriously, I think this isn't the right thing.. But hey, he's atleast continuing his chillout and ambient stuff.

    I mean a simple rule to happy life is 'do what you want and what makes you happy', so hey - I'm happy for Andre that he likes what he is doing. I don't like this track at all, but nobody is shoving it down my throat so as I mentioned before, I will simply skip it.

    However fans can be nagging a**holes sometimes. If they could they would lock their favorite producer in the studio and wouldn't let him/her out until they come out with the 'good old sound'.
    If you are free in your dreams, then why don't you go to places you always wanted to go?

    Sounds very commercial and generic, I use to like him up to 2003 but since then his productions have gone downhill and hasn't been the same since. Though however, I respect his choice if he wants to change his style.

    Like all artists, they either die off and become irrelevant or they move onto a style completely abandoning their roots or they basically sellout and pretend or deny that they haven't.
