Juan Sapia – Holy Grail | Space Turtle [Clubsonica Records]

10 min read

Clubsonica Records opens the fall season by welcoming Juan Sapia back to the label for a new EP. Hailing from the progressive house hotbed of Argentina, Juan Sapia has enjoyed a steady rise since first emerging in 2017. As a favourite of progressive music tastemakers Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren, the Buenos Aires resident has compiled an impressive resume, landing releases on top tier imprints such as Mango Alley, Or Two Strangers, Sudbeat Music, and The Soundgarden. Also calling Clubsonica home, Juan made his label debut in June of last year with 'Masana | Embrace', a well-received joint project with Sri Lankan artist Hasith. Now, returning to the label in solo capacity, Juan unveils his second Clubsonica project 'Holy Grail | Space Turtle', alongside remixes from Greg Ochman and Ethereal Mist.

Getting the release underway and sitting as one of Juan's biggest productions to date is 'Holy Grail'. Warm beats and a full, rolling groove set the foundation for a narrative of colourful arps, cosmic effects and heartfelt harmonics. Pushing a trance-inspired mood into the break; Juan marries emotive chord changes with symphonic synth swagger across the mood lifting interlude, building emotion with each successive pass as melodies open up, before eventually giving way to a thumping drop and key changing finale. The companion piece 'Space Turtle' continues the trance-inspired lean of the release and lands with an equally impressive display of craftsmanship. Smooth and uplifting throughout, it's a collage of warm pulsating beats, retro-arps and balmy pads which captivate leading into the break. Charming synth phrases and delicate arps further the story as the centrepiece unfolds, bringing with them hopeful moods and transcendent vibes, before a tasteful drop puts your senses on high for a groovy conclusion.

Returning to the label with the lone interpretation of 'Holy Grail' is Greg Ochman. Hailing from Poland, Greg first emerged in 2021 with a release via Sebastian Leger's Lost Miracle. Comprised of three tracks, this organic offering would lead to future releases for Kiksuya Records, Pattenbank, Radiant and Warung Recordings. Clubsonica was also one of Greg's first landing spots, with April of 2021 marking his label debut with the thematic sounds of 'Mistlove'. Continuing to ride this wave of success, Greg makes a welcome return to the label with a playful take on 'Holy Grail'. Smooth and groovy across the first movement, Greg continues his stylized ways with youthful vocal elements, sleek percussive arrangements and whimsical melodies creating a colourful path into the main break. Sitting comfortably in an emotive yet thought provoking space, joyous melodies and percussive flurries rise out of calming atmospheres as the interlude evolves, eventually breaking off into a heartwarming drop and charming finale.

The release concludes with Ethereal Mist returning to the label with the lone interpretation of 'Space Turtle'. Hailing from Colombia and perhaps best known for his Parallel Universe alias alongside Mauro Pierotti, Ethereal Mist has been a fixture of his country's electronic music scene for the better part of a decade. Clubsonica has been a familiar landing spot for his progressive minded productions, with a 2016 debut setting the course for three additional projects across the next two calendar years. Although putting a primary focus into his Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren supported Parallel Universe project in recent years, Ethereal Mist now returns to Clubsonica in solo capacity for a rousing rendition of 'Space Turtle'. From warm, rhythmic beginnings comes redolent themes and heartfelt sonics. Gentle flutters build and balmy atmospheres emerge, perfectly setting the stage for shimmering melodies and clattering percussion to forge a path into the break. Carrying the trance-inspired mood of the original, the Colombian creates moments of hope and elation as the centrepiece evolves, before smoothly segueing into a thumping finale which is sure to send people home with a smile. A stunning remix from Ethereal Mist, which rounds out a welcome return to Clubsonica for Juan Sapia, an artist who continues to impress and rise in the world of progressive house.
