After having the adorable voice of Janl (Lunik, Delerium, Mich Gerber) singing on her last years smash hit ââ84 Always on my mindâ, Tatana choose to collaborate for her new single âAll that I feelâ with another star of the Swiss music scene. Pee from the band Dada ante Portas! The single is taken from Tatanaâs forthcoming 8th mix-album âPeace & Loveâ (Sirup/TBA), follow up to her number 1 album âNeonlightsâ (2004). The cd includes numerous new tracks by Tatana. Therefore she cooperated again with Swiss producers Franky Fonell/Chris Reece. The leading Swiss DJane presents with âPeace & Loveâ a typical DJ Tatana trance mix. The listener can dive into full, beautiful electronic harmonies and is sent to the seventh heaven of trance. Ever since Tatana Sterba mixed the “Live At Street Parade” CD in 1998 she has been the icon of Switzerlandâs Trance scene. Whenever this 27-year-old DJane from Zurich is behind the turntable at raves such as “Energy” or in clubs like OXA in Zurich and MAD in Lausanne, she gets a grip on her audience like none other. Her true fans can always be found on the front row, with their homemade Tatana banners. As female producer of hits such as âDream Offâ, âEnd Of Timeâ (with DJ Energy) and âWordsâ, sheâs a member of Switzerlandâs Premier trance league. English magazine âM8â enthusiastically wrote: âThe way she builds up her sets is wonderful, to see Tatana mixing is the dream of every music knowerâ. The self-made woman was born on 7th August 1976 in former Czechoslovakia. Whilst at school she played various different instruments and was already developing a sensitive feel for music. She also attended dancing schools for ballet and jazz. At the beginning of the Swiss techno and house movement, Tatana was dancing the night away at parties and so came into contact with many influential people in the industry. In May 1994, at the tender age of seventeen, she first had the opportunity to impress everyone with her talent during a party at Groodonia in Ra’fcmlang. Some small gigs in and around Zurich followed, and in the same year she had the opportunity to prove herself at bigger events such s Futurescope, Evolution, Magic Kingdom and Metropolis. In 1997 Tatana produced her own first record, released on Liquid Records, in Frankfurtâs Polaris-Studio, along with the German star producer Torsten Stenzel (Taucher, DJ Sakin & Friends). On 8th August 1998, she did a set for the Street Parade and at Energy â98, the biggest event of its kind in Switzerland. Her second production, âTatana – The second Chapter E.P.â followed at the end of August 1998 on Liquid Records. In November 1998, Tatanaâs first own Mix-CD, âTatana The Mix Vol. 1â, was released. In 1999 she produced the single âEnd of Timeâ along with DJ Energy. In April she mixed the âGoliathâ CD. In the summer, she was offered the chance to produce the official CD for Street Parade in Zurich, along with its anthem, âMore Than Wordsâ. In 2000 she released her Mix-CD â24 Karatâ, which reached ninth place in the official Swiss charts. Together with the band M.O.P.E she developed a live act totally new to the trance scene. With this she was able to inspire the crowds at âHeitere Open Airâ in Zofingen and the Energy 00 in the Hallenstadion. In November, she managed to conquer the Swiss market straightaway with her next Mix-CD, âPure Elementsâ. The follow-up Mix-Album, âPink Punkâ (released May 2001) made number five in the album charts and paved the way for the decisive success of âSuperpopâ. Beside that, she walked off with a platinum award for the âEnergy 2001â Compilation and gold for âEnergy 2002â. âWildlifeâ (2003) which featured the single “Moments” rocketed to the number one spot of the Swiss Album Charts. Not less successful were DJ Tatanaâs mixes for the âEnergy – the annualâ compilation (01, 02 and 04), the platinum selling âEnergy 03â double-cd (together with DJ Energy) and the âStreet Parade 04â compilation (platinum award for over 50,000 units sold). For the Swiss trance princess and Switzerlandâs most successful DJ ever, 2005 will be without a doubt another phenomenal year full of success.
