Alan Cerra – Ascension / Lacuna / Isle Of Man [Higher States]

5 min read

Presenting their first release of 2022, Roger Martinez's Higher States welcomes Alan Cerra to the label for his debut EP. Based in Argentina, Alan first emerged in 2019 with a contribution to 3rd Avenue's popular 'We Are The Future' series. His progressive sound quickly found footing with world class DJs such as Cid Inc, Eelke Kleijn, Hernan Cattaneo, Miss Monique and more. Further successes came across the next two years, with the Río Gallegos resident finding a home on Beatfreak, Hoomidaas, Mango Alley and Siona Records. Continuing on an upwards trajectory as 2022 takes shape, Alan now adds Higher States to his resume with a three-track showcase entitled 'Ascension'.

Getting the release underway and sitting as one of Alan's most infectious productions to date is 'Ascension'. Renowned for his ability to bring life to any dance floor, Alan layers strong chord stabs and a forest of manicured percussion over driving beats and a rolling groove. Epic and exhilarating in equal measure, the first act eventually melts down as ghostly overlays and blustery effects provide a smooth transition into the break. Pushing a poignant narrative, cascading melodies and warm textural drifts marry beautifully across the interlude, building emotion with each successive pass before eventually giving way to a thumping drop and charged finale.

The second selection 'Lacuna' follows suit and lands with equal vigor. Alan's smooth groove and hip swinging hooks power the framework, while whimsical arps and buzzing effects add depth and colour across the first movement. Placid overlays illuminate a tastefully euphoric break, setting in a motion a rise of drums and modulation onwards to a buoyant finale.

Putting a stamp on this excellent collection are the wavy grooves and psychedelic design of 'Isle Of Man'. Bright and uplifting throughout, it's a collage of lively percussion, striking stabs and spastic effects which captivate leading into the break. Wistful themes further the story as the centrepiece unfolds, bringing with them hopeful moods and transcendent vibes, before clustered sonics put your senses on alert for a thunderous drop and high-octane finale. It rounds out three excellent productions from Alan Cerra, a fast-rising talent who continues to grow into his place as a future progressive music star.
