EnTrance – Captiviating World Beat Music

Conrad Praetzel - En Trance

EnTrance (1995, 45 min)
Conrad Praetzel

EnTrance means “to fill with rapturous delight” – which the recording definitely does. From the first cut, “Waking the Shadows” to “Petra”, and on to “Stone Soup”, the production is absolutely mesmerizing — it’s like a grand tour of some foreign outlying land.

“Billed as Ambient World Beat, EnTrance is such a delightful melding of both that it may have created a new musical category…each track has something fresh going for it.”  
…..– Steve Ryals/Planet Earth Music

Conrad Praetzel is a California-based electronic keyboardist, percussionist, and multi-instrumentalist.
