Lucas Zárate – Esporas [Secret Feelings]

6 min read

Following on from the label's inaugural release, JFR's Secret Feelings welcomes Lucas Zárate to the label for his debut EP. Hailing from Argentina, Lucas Zárate first emerged in 2022 with releases via Balkan Connection South America, Bekool Records, Droid9 South America and RYNTH. Immediately recognized for his organic and progressive sounds, the Tucumán resident would quickly earn the support of Gorje Hewek, Modd, Nick Warren and many more. 2023 has proved to be a breakout year for Lucas, building on the success of his early releases, the fast rising phenom has added trendsetting organic imprints Melody of the Soul, Peace Symphonies and RADI MIRA I LUBVI to his resume, while remaining a beloved DJ as part of his country's burgeoning nightlife. Now, continuing on an upwards trajectory, Lucas makes his debut on Secret Feelings with 'Esporas'.

The title selection sets the tone for the release and sits as one of Lucas' most distinctive tracks to date. Drifting further away from traditional organic templates, Lucas crafts a storyboard of robust rhythms, gated vocals and carnivalesque lead themes, where interwoven hooks work in a clever co-ax of sound, and an effects-laden break ties it all together for a powerful finale. Selection two 'Silk Serenade' continues the funkier lean of the EP, with well-carved, low slung basslines setting the foundation for a lively lead to percolate as percussion pushes momentum in the main break. Ghostly vocals add depth, space and perhaps most importantly a unique emotional response, perfectly setting the course for energetic final movement.

The EP's halfway point is marked by 'Leviatan', a track where phasing atmospherics and melancholic overlays create a canopy for looping percussive arrangements and arcane motifs to unite, in what is strong rhythmic drive. The main break lands appropriately and stays brief, simply building tension though modulation for what is an enthralling finale. The release concludes with 'Impetu' which offers a deeper more thought-provoking narrative, complete with a playful lead and free-form jazz-like sensibility. The main break proves to be the standout here with a captivating sequence gradually opening up into a drum flurried finale that should fair well with the more adventurous selectors out there. A fitting end to a sprawling collection of music from Lucas Zárate, an artist who not only makes an excellent Secret Feelings debut, but continues to impress and rise in the world of organic house. Highly recommended.
