TheFatRat is the EDM moniker of Göttingen, Germany's Christian Büttner, whose music ranges from euphoric progressive house to trap and melodic glitch-hop, with a heavy influence of video game music. He is enormously popular on YouTube, particularly with the gaming community, currently boasting one of the largest followings and most engaging fan-bases on the web for an artist in his genre.

TheFatRat’s forward-thinking approach to lift copyright restrictions on his music has led to him having been featured in 3 million videos - collectively accounting for over 3 billion unique views on the platform. Over the years he has become one of the most top-charting acts in dance music, having had multiple singles remain in the iTunes top50 for over 3 years straight. He has had his music synched-to-screen for popular video games like the top-grossing DOTA 2 and Rocket League and has planted himself as the go-to artist for ESports brands like ESL and Dreamhack.

That’s the fun part to do some longer songs, shorter songs, different structures, and some instrumentals. I’m sure that some of my fans will totally fall in love.
