It’s Been 23 Years, but ATB’s 9pm (Till I Come) Finally Gets a Remake

A modern reimagining of ATB’s platinum-selling 1998 classic 9pm (Till I Come), Your Love (9pm) is the first-ever official remake with the Trance producer’s involvement.

ATB

Working together in the studio in Germany, ATB and Topic combined both of their music styles flawlessly to create the track, along with A7S, who finalized the lyrics via video call. “Over the past 20 years I’ve received so many requests for collaborations, remakes and cover versions of my song ‘9pm (Till I Come)’ but I passed on them all because I was never really satisfied with the sound of the approach nor the final,” explains ATB. “Then I listened to Topic’s “Breaking Me” together with Rudi (management) and we immediately had the feeling that these two sound worlds could fuse together perfectly.” 

ATB & Topic’s version flaunts A7S’ soaring vocals and a powerful, full-bodied bass line with the iconic hook and sun-kissed Trance energy that made the original special to listeners worldwide. “9pm (Till I Come) is an absolute dance classic that I’ve known and loved since I was little,” says Topic. “It is, therefore, a great honor to be the first to reissue this number together with ATB. The typical ATB guitar riff paired with my “melancholic dance music” sound and the unmistakable voice of A7S results in perfect symbiosis!”

Your Love (9pm) follows on from what has been a career-defining year for Topic & A7S. 2020 saw the duo enlist Grammy-nominated US rapper, Lil Baby, for previous single, Why Do You Lie To Me. The melancholic track racked up 30 million Spotify streams and garnered strong UK radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, and Kiss FM.

To add to Topic & A7S’ momentous success, their viral phenomenon Breaking Me surpassed a billion global streams and received multi-platinum certifications worldwide. ATB’s big breakthrough moment, 9pm (Till I Come), propelled the German DJ and producer to the top of the UK singles chart back in 1998, becoming the first trance song to reach #1 in the UK. Not stopping there, ATB’s debut single also peaked in several Top 10 charts around the globe, including the US Billboard Charts, and opened the door for dance music on mainstream radio.

A7S

His creative spirit continued to flourish with an impressive string of hits like Don’t Stop, Ecstasy, Let U Go, What About Us, Move On and When It Ends It Starts Again. Together with 10 studio albums, Gold and Platinum certifications in numerous territories have underlined the German’s status, as did his continuous presence in the prestigious DJ Mag ‘Top 100’ poll for almost two decades. 

A stunning rework of a legendary 90’s dance track, Your Love (9pm) boasts ATB’s timeless hook and Topic’s effortless production style, along with A7S’ vocal performance, whilst paying homage to the classic dance hits of yesteryear.
