Due out through Wakaan on April 26th is ‘End Trance,’ a brand new EP by high-powered duo Zebbler Encanti Experience. The act is comprised of visual designer Peter ‘Zebbler’ Berdovsky and audio wizard Ben ‘Encanti’ Cantil, which first emerged in the late 00’s through steady touring with Shpongle and EOTO.
Following past material like 2015’s ‘Inner G’ and 2018’s ‘Id.Entity,’ ‘End Trance’ is a striking evolution of concept and sound. With three original tracks alongside a collaboration with Mr. Bill, this collection is ear candy for the audiophile.
The opening gambit happens to be the title track: a steady, expansive beat that allows space for its fresh hybrid of bass thuds and whirs to develop properly. Its sequel, ‘Trance End’ is equally matched in tempo – throwing in some pacier builds to contrast that low, growling bassline.
‘Outside The Box’ is literal with its design. Moving freely between warped melodies and explosive rumbles, the explorative energy is unbridled. Finally, acclaimed producer and artist Mr. Bill joins forces for ‘Inside The Box,’ which evokes old school trance vibes alongside that futuristic, neuro-tinged bass.
Encanti reflects on this project, saying: “Aside from being our debut EP for Wakaan, it charts new stylistic territories… this release revisits many classic dubstep womps, but also borrows from the fresher neurostep sound, all mixed up. Conceptually, the idea behind End Trance is to break the trance—snapping you violently back to reality. This is very ZEE. In our sonic realm of psychedelic music where artists want to put you in a trance, ZEE is here to wake you from the trance.”

'End Trance' is available everywhere via WAKAAN Friday April 26.
One of the few albums that every track makes my hair stand on edge. Constant arousal of drums and heavy bass lines, while keeping a melodic atmosphere, puts this out there amongst the best bass albums to exist. Consummately written. Perfect. NarBonezz
