New Tracks of the Month
ifted with the ability to cross genres and provide listeners with his own signature sound, Franz Zimmer a.k.a. Alle Farben has continued his meteoric rise as both a DJ and producer over recent years. In 2012, he achieved a national breakthrough playing for 35,000 people at Berlin’s former Tempelhof Airport, marking a stand out point in his career as an artist. With multiple award nominations under his belt, including Newcomer to Star in 2015 at the Newcomer Contest Bayern as well as the Dance National Award for Echo, Alle’s unique talents have now been widely recognized by the dance music community. In early 2014, Alle released his first studio album Synesthesia, which generated a tremendous response and achieved huge success in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. However, the success of his album did not diminish his passion for festivals and live performances. He kept touring in 2015 to provide music lovers with memorable nights and spectacular sunrises. Whether it’s New York City, Bangkok, Paris, Zurich, Beirut or Kuala Lumpur – Alle Farben is welcomed planet-wide. His phenomenal success has been partly due to his ability to experiment in the studio. Alle rejects the rigid boundaries of music genres by fusing all kinds of elements including live musicians with a hint of classical or swing while lingering between Techno, Minimal and House. With shows at top tier locations such as Lollapalooza in Chicago, Frequency Festival in Austria, SonneMondSterne and Theaterfabrik, Alle’s demand behind the decks continues to rise. Alle’s ability and flair in the studio has resulted in a string of massive releases. His 2014 debut single She Moves achieved platinum status with 17 million views on YouTube and almost 2 million on Soundcloud, as well as receiving support from highly respected artists including Moguai, Roger Shah and more. 2015 saw Alle release the hot summer track Supergirl with YOUNOTTHIS and Anna Naklab. Supergirl achieved Platinum status in Germany and Poland, as well as Gold status in Spain, Austria and Switzerland. In 2016, Alle released the highly anticipated offering Please Tell Rosie, the first single from his second album Music Is My Best Friend on ULTRA music. Please Tell Rosie achieved 14 million views on YouTube and catapulted Alle toward mega star status.
