Transcenders is an American full service music production company established in 2002 by Brian Lapin, Terence Yoshiaki and Mike Fratantuno.


Starting in 1995, Fratantuno, Yoshiaki, and Lapin collaborated as founding members of the music group The Black Eyed Peas (BEP). The trio contributed to songwriting as well as touring, including the Grammy-winning "Let's Get It Started", the band's first single "Joints & Jam", "Request + Line", and the #1 hit "Where Is the Love?".

When BEP took a break from touring to record their third album, Elephunk, the three began collaborating on film and television scoring projects and song production for numerous projects.
