Conspicuously, flashy and stylishly dressed, driven up in a limousine, making his appearance up on the huge stage, performing in front of 10'000 screaming people, which start to bluster from the first beats. A two hour power concert, hugs, pictures and popping champagne corks, blinded by the camera flash lights, interviews and afterwards straight to the next gig by private Jet, that is how you can describe DJ Antoine and his life. A dream, which came true.
With the biggest European hit of the year 2011 „Welcome To St. Tropez“, and the unbelievable over 1'000'000 times sold and Impala awarded hit single „Ma Chérie“ DJ Antoine launched himself to an international level. On top he reached in October 2013 the sensational entry in the famous DJ Mag DJ Top 100 at #68! This Top 100 is known as the most important DJ ranking list worldwide.
The beginning of DJ Antoine’s career is due to the establishment of the club “House Café” in Basel in 1995. Within a short period of time, his funky sets and his trademark “dress to impress” made him a cult figure within the Basel society and later on also in the Swiss House scene. In 1998 he produced his first album “DJ Antoine – The Pumpin House Mix”. The big breakthrough in Switzerland happened one year later, the “Houseworks 1” – Compilation was the first gold rewarded album of DJ Antoine. This success was followed by further compilations, albums and Gold-Awards. The single “This Time” (2007) was his first international breakthrough and established DJ Antoine throughout the world.
Also the last bestseller album “Welcome To DJ Antoine” enthused and increased the fans and industry within Europe. The album release tour provided the clubs all around Europe with huge queues.
The results of DJ Antoine’s tireless motivation are: over 50 CD releases, more than 3 million records sold. He received 39 Gold-Awards, 2 Triple Gold-Awards, 7 Platinum-Awards, 4 Double Platinum-Awards, 2 Triple and 1 Quadruple-Platinum-Awards! For the third time in a row Antoine won the Swiss Music Award for “Best Album Dance National”. Highlight of his career so far are the two nominations for the Echo in 2012 and 2013, one of the most important music awards in Europe, in the category “Best Artist Dance”.
