Rediscover the Transcendental Experience, a Singaporean trance trio from the mid-1990s — listen

Unbeknownst to many of our younger readers, Singapore once had a pretty awesome trance act called the Transcendental Experience back in the mid-90s'.

Most notably, they released a fairly well-known EP on famed English label React in 1996 (yes, 21 years ago).

Made up of Shawn Chin, DJ Cher and Jason Tan (still active as a member of Syndicate and Octover), the trio of producers quietly emerged in Europe with the backing of legendary local nightclub Zouk.

Titled Zouk Presents: Transcendental Experience, their debut offering in the UK and Ireland contained four propulsive tracks - namely 'Levitation', 'Vertigo', 'Vicious' and 'Alien Objects'.

An uplifting combination of progressive trance and Goa trance, one could imagine that these songs would have been crowd-pleasers at several energetic all-night raves back in the day.

Alas, most of us here at Bandwagon were much too young back then, so we'll settle for rediscovering Transcendental Experience on Spotify.

A couple of their tracks have been uploaded onto YouTube for posterity as well.
