Biography


German DJ Thomas Kukula founded General Base around 1990. After several years of Dj'ing in Germany he decided to not only play music, but also to make and produce it. General Base released the single Apache and Poison in 1993.
1993 was also the year for the release of his first album, First.

He managed to get disco diva Claudja Barry to do the vocals on Poison, and the result turned out to be a smash hit dance single all over Europe and even parts of the United States. Later on he released the singles Back Again and In Trance that very especially popular in the United Kingdom, but didnt quite become as popular as Poison.

In 1994 he teamed up with rapper Michael Kassner and several female singers and produced yet another smash hit, this time mostly played in Germany, Base of Love, and this track was later remixed by both Damage Control and Sequential One.

Then came I See You in 1995 and the more upbeat 'underground' rave/hardtrance track Rhythm & Drums in 1996.
A great track that is featured on many compilations worldwide.

Now that the sound of General Base seemed to go in one direction, the harder and more underground style, Thomas Kukula decided to found yet another group where he could produce the more mainstream dance music while General Base took care of the 'harder stuff'. Thats when he started the project Red 5 who has rapidly gained even more success than General Base and the tracks "Da Beat Goes..." , "I Love You... Stop!" and "Lift me Up" are frequently and rapidly played in clubs all over Europe.

Later in 1996 they released a song called "Thank U {For Your Love}" and in 1997 they released a song called "On & On".

The single "Base of Love Rebased" was released on April 13, 2004.

Thomas Kukula also makes music under Candy Beat, T.H.K. and some other projects.
