Anjelique and the Sweet City Band have released their second single of 2020. The two-time Tejano Music Awards winners are following the success of the hit song “Fastidiada” with the release of “En Trance” this week.
“En Trance” was composed and produced by Isak A, son of Anjelique, and a member of the band since the age of 14. This is the second collaboration for the duo after the song “Groove.” Anjelique wrote the latest single that showcases a sound from the pair’s respective styles and offers a window into their creativity.
The upbeat pace of “En Trance” combines both melodic and hypnotical vocals along with a deeper electronic vibe with the addition of saxophone that brings a cheerful entrancing sound.
The lyrics and title are a reference to the feelings of attractive and charming dance moves and the song entices the listener to construct whatever dance, flow, or moves they feel. Part of the joy comes from a significant switch up to their recording process.
“We started this song in San Antonio at Slackmonster Studios with Sevy Contreras, pre-COVID19,” said Anjelique. “We were not quite sure what to do with the song because it wasn’t finished but we weren’t able to get back to San Antonio, so we tried something different. We took advantage of the upgrades of technology and finished the song with Isak A and Jimmy Garcia, then sent it to Eddie Perez to mix it up and master the song you hear now.”
“Thinking outside of the box, we took a gamble with this song to provide a young, hip, electronic flavor inspired by Isak A along with some Tejano saxophone that music lovers of all ages would enjoy,” she added.
“En Trance” will be available at all digital music platforms and the group’s official website, www.anjeliquemusic.com.
