LA producer BINKS aligns with frequent collaborator and fellow freeform bass sensation GNOSIS on a transcendental journey of sound. The two producers chart a course to physical and mental health through the tones of the underground on their new TRANSCENDENCE EP, out May 7 on SKRONG, imprint of Atlanta trap legend MAYHEM. TRANSCENDENCE was born from a place of transformation for BINKS, in looking his demons in the eye and leveraging them to vault himself to a place of clarity, success, and sobriety. The resulting five-track project, while instrumental in nature, speaks volumes. Each track crafts a unique environment, represented by otherworldly pyramid architecture in their striking cover artwork, ultimately coming together to reach collective consciousness - transcendence.

Out the gates first booming with low end bravado is the slithering "Astral Projection." The artful use of negative space along with curious and meandering glitches sets the tone for the project's journey-like nature. "Symbiot," drawing inspiration from its biological overtones, drips and drops like chemicals into the bloodstream, harkening back to Binks' struggle with addiction and its monumental impact on his work and sound. Ominous and jarring, "Calcination" creeps up your spine next like the overture to a horror film, careening around perilous sonic corners and bracing for impact. The project's title track features a tried and true trap beat sure to get necks nodding, with layered organic samples and an overall icy tone. "Defcon" concludes the journey, rattling with metallic swagger and a sense of urgency for what's to come.

"'Transcendence' embodies the depth of limitless potential that lies within the human consciousness. Go beyond psychological constructs & rise above to your true potential."

"'Transcendence' is an alchemy of vibrations & intention. This project is a fusion of organic & synthetic soundscapes, dancing in tension and release, bringing order to chaos. It is the process of an old paradigm of bass music transcending into the new."
