In 2019, Travis Drews AKA Casual T dropped his celebrated Lovers? EP. The 7-track extended play was a milestone release that solidified his presence as a force in dance music. Since then, the Lovers? EP has ushered in over 100k+ cumulative streams on Spotify, earning Casual T a newfangled fan-base eager for more. Back at the apex of Texas dance music, Casual T unveils “Transcendence,” his first single since the EP.
A brainstorm of colorful electronic elements, brushed with synth-laden strokes, “Transcendence” arrives at the intersection of intimate pop and explosive EDM. A song about the fluid and ever-changing nature of life, “Transcendence” comes from a place of intellect and metaphysical manifestos. The song demands your attention with its crystal-clean mixing and mastering in addition to Casual T’s inventive soundscapes. He successfully layers digital elements that climax in an unforgettable, expensive-sounding crescendo. “Transcendence” stands out in the future bass genre as it emits a stormy attitude that strikes you in the square in the gut. A dazzling addition to his already-impressive catalog, “Transcendence” is worth the replay.
“Transcendence represents a bridge between the Lovers? Ep and the future of Casual T. I’m moving away from writing love songs and closer toward capturing the visceral, powerful emotions that make electronic music so exciting. Transcendence is about letting go of the toxic people and habits that stop you from being your best self. It is about growing greater than you had thought possible and coming into your own. It’s about transcending and becoming who you are meant to be” – Casual T
