about

T-Bass UK originally came into being in 1993 as Kinetic Engineering and was originally intended to be a front for the musical ambitions of writer and journalist David J. Hughes. A cover name was used mainly because another David Hughes was slowly building a big audience in the UK, albeit on the folk scene, and also because Hughes wanted to keep his journalist career seperate from any musical activities.

Armed with a DAT full of ideas, David sent off a couple of demo tapes to, amongst others, Les May of the now-defunct Midas Records. Les was convinced that here was another rising star and passed the demo tapes on to Ashley Franklin whose Soundscapes programme on BBC Radio Derby had established itself as a major showcase for UK Synthesiser talent. The provisional title of David's debut album was Tranquility Bass, a play on the name of the area of the moon where the first lunar landings took place.

Ashley liked what he heard and decided to air a couple of tracks on his programme. Sadly, fate had other ideas and the DAT and its track card became seperated. Consequently, all Ashley had to go on was the name of the album which Ashley unfortunately assumed was the name of the band. Listener response was excellent and consequently, the name stuck! This was unfortunate because there was already a band of that name in the US. Oh dear.

Encouraged, Hughes went ahead with the release of the debut album The Infection of Time in October 1995. This album was a tremendous success, gaining considerable critical acclaim and the album continues to enjoy airplay around the world to this day.
