Biography

The Airbase story begins in 1994 when he got his hands on the software Scream Tracker pitched to him by a Finnish cousin. A few years later, Airbase switched to better software that came highly recommended from others called Fast Tracker. The following years were kept busy with hard work which rendered numerous tracks, but also a lot of knowledge and understanding in how to produce, arrange and write melodies. With the first full time employment pay check received in early 2000, the first piece of hardware was bought, the Yamaha CS2x Control Synthesizer. For almost 2 years, a large number of tracks were created using the CS2x tool. However, with building frustrations, Airbase felt he could no longer bring anything new to his productions using only this piece of hardware. In 2001, a friend showed him the new exciting Swedish software, Propellerheads Reason. Soon after, Airbase flew right into producing with Reason, ditching Cubase in only days, using the CS2x as a midi keyboard only.

In a short time with Reason, the track Airbase - Emotion had been created, which caught the attention of the German label Alphabet City. Airbase was offered his first record deal, and in early 2002, Emotion was released. During the wait for Emotion to get released, the track Genie was produced and was instantly chosen to be the follow up of Emotion. With support from the top jocks, requests for remixes and original records for other labels came pouring in. This has kept him constantly busy ever since.

    Tired of hearing people whingeing about Trouse and commercial EDM? Airbase, Scandinavia’s king of Trance, has the perfect antidote. ‘Modus Operandi’ released in May 2013 is his follow up to ‘Uppercut’ and like A.R.D.I and Dennis Pedersen’s smash ‘Forgotten‘, also released in May 2013, has a delicious piano melody breakdown. A rolling baseline, repeated simple synths and piano chords build the track up like a saucepan coming to the boil. The gentle piano breakdown simmers the expectation before the energetic climax bursts into life. One of the tracks we will still be talking about in the 2013 tune of the year debates and a possible future Trance classic. Trance is dead? Long live the king! 8.5/10 - More Reviews at www.trancefixxed.co.uk / @TranceFixxed (Twitter)

    Uppercut is boring as hell, Jezper is really talented but its such a shame he wastes it making generic crap music

    We Might Fall, as an album, has lasted for a year for me, and now there's Uppercut, which has pretty much rekindled my expectations for modern Trance. Odds are that I will have listened the track a hundred times before the end of the year. Fantastic build-up, fantastic structuring, superb sounds, absolutely massive. Getting released on a headline label like ASOT, too! Means we can expect MORE top-quality tracks and fast, right?

    I like the album quite a bit. His trance is breath of fresh air compared to some other recent albums of the genre.

    Well, I was in HMV the other day, and to my surprise, I saw an Airbase album. Congratulations, Jezper!

    to Phatency: Jezper released on mp3.com a sortkind of album which was called Initially. It contained singles like Magic Silence, T-pod, his remix of dj's scarab's The Answer, Injection and so on. Later he also released Collection, which was not released on a label. We Might Fall is actually the first full and signed album. It's released on Intuition recordings, the label from Menno de Jong.

    Is "We Might Fall" really his first full length album though? I remember this one independently released album back from 2000-2001 or so, which had the intro song "Limit" (which might be the name of the album?) and songs like "Mika J - Sar", "Dreamer" and "Sparrow". I didn't buy it back then but have some of the songs from his mp3.com days :P
