Golan Zocher – Alive ft. Ojeni [Clubsonica Records]

10 min read

The latest release from Clubsonica Records finds Golan Zocher returning to the label for a new single. Born in Colombia but now calling Israel home, Golan Zocher has firmly etched his place in progressive house lore. Following a 2016 debut, the Tel Aviv resident quickly found his place amongst the genre's elite, earning play and support from Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Guy J and Guy Mantzur. Releases via Mango Alley, Or Two Strangers, Plattenbank and Proton highlight what has been an eight-year creative swell for this elusive talent. Clubsonica has also been a regular landing spot for Golan, with three originals and two remixes recorded since making his label debut in 2017. Now, following a contribution to the label's Sampler, Vol.3 earlier this year, Golan returns to the Clubsonica with 'Alive', alongside remixes from Will DeKeizer and Dabeat.

Diversifying his portfolio further, 'Alive' finds Golan collaborating with vocalist Ojeni. Together the duo craft an emotive slice of progressive house that arrives in good time for the impending summer season. Golan's warm key changing grooves, timeless tonal themes and lively percussive arrangements set the perfect foundation for Ojeni's memorable hooks to work their magic. She injects the piece with authentic soul and emotion, as Golan's warm grooves and subtle musicality provide the perfect dance floor vehicle to deliver the tracks transcendent message.

Making his label debut with the first interpretation of 'Alive' is Will DeKeizer. Hailing from the USA, Will DeKeizer first emerged in 2021 with the success of 'Karma'. Released via onedotsixtwo and played by Nick Warren, it set the course for what has been a remarkable two-year stretch. Armed with a sound that incorporates dark, hypnotic and melodic elements, Will would go on to showcase his music via Deepwibe Underground, Plattenbank and Sudbeat, while earning the support of genre tastemakers Guy J, Guy Mantzur and Hernan Cattaneo. Now, on the strength of a three-track showcase for Suza records, Will makes his Clubsonica debut with a cosmic take on 'Alive'. Dark rebounding rhythms and warm key changing basslines set the course for snatches of fluttery effects and bright percussive clusters. A gorgeous contrast from the American artist and one which is explored further across an astral break. A haze of trailing effects dominates the cavernous interlude, building tension with each successive pass, before Will's progressive attitude reveals itself during a commanding drop and groove-centric finale.

The release concludes with Dabeat returning to the label with the second and final interpretation of 'Alive'. Sitting as one of Colombia's premiere progressive house talents, David Barragan aka Dabeat has enjoyed a steady rise since first emerging in 2008 with a release courtesy of Beatfreak Recordings. The next decade saw David perfect his craft with a sound that many describe as groovy, dynamic and emotional. Now laying claim to an impressive discography, the Santiago de Cali resident has showcased his music via Anjunadeep, Mango Alley, Plattenbank, Proton, Replug and Sudbeat, while continuing to receive play and support from the genre's premiere tastemakers. As a regular contributor to Clubsonica, David has delivered five remixes across the last five years, which now lead him back to the label with an emotive take on 'Alive'. Smooth and rhythmic throughout, Dabeat aims squarely at a main room dancefloor here. Deconstructed vocals and wavy arps unite atop trance inducing rhythms and full rolling grooves. Phasing motifs and precise percussion add tension leading into the main break, perfectly setting up the full vocal reveal. Ojeni's soulful phrases emerge for moments of harmonic bliss, married beautifully against a backdrop of flickering arps, before getting washed away in a finale that is equal parts energetic and emotive. A gorgeous interpretation from Dabeat which rounds out an excellent single and label return for Golan Zocher.
