Daily 2% - Chilled and Ready to Serve [ATB]

This is your Daily 2% – Chilled and Ready to Serve. We will try to bring you one "chill" track every day. This is for when you get home and you are trying to unwind. You reach for that glass of wine or that unlit Black & Mild or maybe you reach for something more herbal. This track is for those times. We are just your milkmen and I'm here to make a delivery. Chill...

Today's delivery is brought to you by ATB. It's surprising that, so far, we haven't featured this German-born pioneer of electronic music on our Daily 2% feature. He can easily be mentioned as one of the first major electronica artists that a lot of us listened to when we started listening to the genre. His arrangement of Trance music is almost always something that you have to listen to and can be somewhat hard to describe just because of all the emotions involved. Most of his tracks contain just the right amount of buildup followed with perfect timing for the "payoff" and the formula may seem simplistic but his sound isn't easily reproduced. You can usually tell when you are listening to an ATB track even if you hadn't heard it before. The track I'm bringing to you today is called "Listen to Me" which came out on his 2009 double album entitled Future Memories. This pick has a soft trance sound  all bundled up in an ambient package which, overall, contains the right mixture of ethereal background noise and faster paced foreground drum patterns to keep things interesting. It almost sounds like the audible equivalent of a prolonged postponement of an orgasm, for the ultimate payoff , that never really comes yet the experience was it's own payoff. Check out the track and chill....

These two songs are really beautiful.
You neither should miss ATB's Dooley's world, it's absolutely chilled and reminds you of lying on the beach and feeling the gentle waves lapping around your feet.
