Above & Beyond just released their new single, “500” ahead of their upcoming Tranquility Base Vol. 1 EP, set to drop May 25th on Anjunabeats. Written especially for its debut at the sold-out Group Therapy 500 celebrations at Banc of California Stadium last October, “500” was also played at Above & Beyond’s sold-out Printworks London takeover in April, as part of the iconic venue’s closing season.

“500” is the second single off the forthcoming EP, following April’s “Angry JP8.” Tranquility Base Vol. 1 is a collection of five heavy-hitting club records, going back to the trio’s instrumental roots. Drawing inspiration from all areas of contemporary electronic music, the EP’s five tracks were all debuted in front of 25,000 fans in Los Angeles last October, ranging from the rolling grooves of “Spin Off,” to the darker atmospheric techno of “VLEKNO.”
The name of the EP series references A&B’s beloved Tranquility Base alias, which was revered for its contribution to the trance genre, including iconic records such as “Surrender,” “Oceanic,” and “Razorfish.” The Tranquility Base EP series will showcase the current instrumental records firmly lodged in Jono, Paavo, and Tony’s record boxes. The full five-track Tranquility Base Vol. 1 EP arrives May 25th, and is available for pre-order here.
Above & Beyond is about to kick off the Wave by Release pool series on May 27th at Talking Stick Resort. Grab your tickets here!
