Biography

Tranquility Base was started as a side project to enable Above & Beyond to release a remix which was rejected. They’d tried to make a certain record sound a little cooler than it did, and thought they’d succeeded. Unfortunately, the A&R man (who shall remain clueless) disagreed, describing their mix as ‘not too bad’. Secretly they were delighted, as a rejected remix is a free track for them, so they changed the riff and put it out under a pseudonym. It remains their favourite production - somehow they made a perfect sounding record - and with the magic words ‘progressive mix’ on the sleeve Razorfish started picking up plays from virtually every major DJ, including Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Dave Pearce, and even Sasha.

Incidentally, as if to prove the idiocy of the A&R man in question, when Above & Beyond sent him the finished version he rang back straight away, screaming ‘I love this new track you’ve done - don’t sign it to anyone until you talk to me!’

They did neither.

Above & Beyond presents Tranquility Base “Surrender” has been firmly blowing the roof off the clubs around the world this summer whilst being road-tested by Above & Beyond. More recently, Armin, PvD and other top jocks have been hammering this gem making it a firm favourite of clubbers around the globe already.

    Tranquility Base is much better than Above & Beyond, specially when you compare A&B's recent pop stuff.

    I hope a whole TB-album will be a fact!

    And there's rumours that they're working on whole TB-album.

    They actually are working on a new TB-track.

    Is it odd that I prefer Tranquility Base tracks to the A&B tracks? It seems they're releasing their really quality, classic trance tunes on the Tranquility Base name.

    Leama & Moor's remix of Getting Away really takes me away. Also like Buzz & Above & Beyond's Progressive mix of Razorfish very very much! All the other tracks are good but not so.
