Etienne aka ATN is like his model David Mancuso, a “digger” with a different musical approach to other current DJ’s. Respect for the integrity and completeness of the tracks he carefully choses is crucial to him. Since he made his debut 6 years ago, ATN has displayed tatsteful Soul Food, Disco Funk Dishes, Jazz and Latin Flavors with Electric Grooves and Unexpected Covers in several fancy restaurants and trendy bars in Paris (CANTINE DU FAUBOURG, TANJIA, ALCAZAR, BUS PALLADIUM, DEPUR KLAY, ROTONDE, …). He promptly got into the DJOON Family, one of the best underground club in Paris, as an early and suportful member of ANIMAL HOUSE and MOTOWN PARTY crew, alongside founders DJ REVERENDP and talented multi instrumentist musician ALEX FINKIN (HAIR, ROSEAUX, ALOE BLACC). ATN carried on with his own before party called EAT SOUL DRINK VIBES at DJOON’s restaurant and also teamed up with famous parisian DJ DAVID STEPANOFF for DANCEMANIA, still at DJOON. In the meantime, ATN managed to lead a residency named TIMESTRECTH at bar LES DISQUAIRES, inviting great funk live acts before his dj set.
In 2012, he produced “THE SWEED’N’JAZZY SESSIONS”, the first swedish jazz funk festival in Paris, featuring the best musicians of NILS LANDGREN’s FUNK UNIT such as bassist MAGNUM COLTRANE PRICE, drummer IKIZ and saxophonist MAGNUS LINDGREN. More recently, ATN has become a resident DJ at NEW MORNING, one the most worldwildly acclaimed soul funk and jazz place in Paris, opening and closing for legendary live artists such as LEON WARE, FRED WESLEY or NILS LANGREN and present-day hottest singers like CHINA MOSES, DWELE or AMP FIDDLER. It was a revelation for him since he received the recognition of his peers as well as his idols.
In 2013, ATN is reaching a new step, launching with 2 associates a new party concept named “KIND OF NEW” at NEW MORNING jazz club. Success is immediate thanks to the involvment of artits like LES NUBIANS, CHRIS DAVE, SETENTA and OMAR.
Stay tuned with ATN’s very next projects : new residencies in Paris, more live acts to promote and exciting first collaborations in music production (reworks and remixes) with ALEX FINKIN and YOUNG PULSE.
