Among the primary innovators within the ambient/trip-hop motion, Tranquility Bass’ Mike Kandel submerged for some from the ’90s before finally issuing his debut record in 1997. Kandel was raised in Chicago but transferred to LA in the first ’90s; motivated by his hometown’s acid-house ideals, he produced the Exist Dance label in 1991 with Tom Chasteen and started producing traditional ambient-house singles like “They Emerged in Tranquility” (on Mo’Wax’s primary Headz compilation) and “Cantamilla” (in the influential first level of the Excursions in Atmosphere series). After Chasteen still left Exist Dance in 1993, Kandel released a label compilation called Transmitting from Heaven but disappeared to some remote island from the United kingdom Columbian coast to begin with focus on his debut record. Two years afterwards, after trip-hop’s impact had spread all over, he surfaced from seclusion with Allow Freak Flag Take a flight, an record that reconciled his digital fantasies with components of psychedelia, funk and blues. A little too trippy because of its very own good, nevertheless, the record wasn’t received in addition to Kandel’s previously recordings.
