The global smash that brought Ace of base to the world. All That She Wants was their second single The song was produced by Denniz Pop. In early 1993, the song reached the top of the charts in many countries, including Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia. The single was certified platinum in the United States, where it peaked at number two. While their predecessor single, “Wheel of Fortune”, was a modest success, “All That She Wants,” led Ace of Base to take off internationally. After hearing Swedish top 20 hit “Another Mother” by Kayo, the band decided that was exactly the sound they wanted to create. They contacted the song’s producer Denniz PoP and sent him a demo of a song called “Mr Ace”. The tape got stuck in the cassette tape player in his car, so he listened to it over and over again, which helped him decide to produce the track.

The song became “All That She Wants”, a dark fusion of dub-reggae with pop which became the band’s trademark sound. On release in October 1992, it quickly climbed to number one on the Danish chart while the previous single was still sitting at number two. Keen to rush out an album for the Christmas market, Mega Records pressed the band for an album and it was hastily recorded, mixed, and released within a few weeks.
Swedish TV’s programme Hitlåten’s Historia (Hit Song’s History), have just finished making a documentary about this song. Once it is broadcast we will be sharing it here…

The Golden Ratio

The Golden Ratio is Ace of Base’s fifth album. It was recorded in late 2009 through to mid-2010. It is the first album to feature two new vocalists: Clara Hagman and Julia Williamson. The Golden Ratio marks the band’s first album of completely new material since 2002. The band said of the album, “The Golden Ratio” is the end result of three years of work in the studio for Ulf and Jonas. Their main challenge was to find what the Ace of Base sound would be in the second decade of the twenty-first century. After a year of experimenting, they realized they wanted to embrace and preserve the original Ace of Base sound but to make it contemporary at the same time.
