The walls of Fur Nightclub expanded and contracted as ATB took the decks Saturday night. From the humid DC night to the ice-cold entrance, down to the hot, sultry dance floor, Fur was a climate-changing anomaly. The only thing that truly mattered, however, was that the 11th ranked DJ in the world was in DC, ready to bang out.

The crowd was chanting his name well over an hour before his scheduled 1am start time. And when he finally appeared over the decks, DC Clubbing erupted. There are many DJs who interact well with the crowd, but not many who match the crowd’s energy. From the moment he began, with soothing vocal trance right into his mega hit ‘Ecstacy,’ ATB was floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee. The booth felt like the squared circle, and ATB was The Greatest. With his hands cupped around his ears like Hulk Hogan, the German super DJ pulled every ounce of energy from the Club Glow crowd. There wasn’t much more they could give him. How anyone had a voice left afterwards is beyond us.

Fast, euphoric, slow, ambient and straight DIRTY!! It was truly amazing to witness ATB’s flurry of electronic dance music. His track selection was more expansive than any trance DJ Glow has seen this year. It included Simon Patterson – Miss You, Avicii – Bromance, ATB – 9PM (Til I Come), David Guetta – The World is Mine, ATB – Ecstacy, The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up, Dash Berlin w/ Cerf Mitiska & Jaren – Man on the Run, Kings of Leon – Use Somebody (ID Remix), and an epic close with ATB – What About Us. It was absolutely gorgeous.

As he left the ring booth; just having hopped on the ledge to sign autographs and talk to fans; looking as if a bucket of water had been poured on him; grinning ear to ear; it was clear that he really is a true champion of trance, dance music, edm and most importantly, the people. We cannot wait until ATB returns to Fur Nightclub.
