Roger Martinez – Hope / Gateway [Higher States]

5 min read

The latest release from Higher States finds label boss Roger Martinez back in the spotlight with a new EP. Having the launched the label in March with his well received 'Dreamtime' EP, the Dutch artist has quickly built the label into a sought after landing spot for progressive music's top artists. While also calling Lost & Found, Replug and Sudbeat home, Roger now returns to Higher States for his much anticipated 'Hope/Gateway' double a-side release.

Never one to be prolific, Roger has always been an artist that chooses his spots wisely. With the March release of his aforementioned 'Dreamtime' EP, the Amsterdam resident then remixed Michael A for the newly formed Serendeep imprint in April. Now with ADE just a week away Roger presents his third project of the year beginning with 'Hope'. Carefully sitting in the creative space between house and techno this has many of Roger's most beloved production hallmarks. From it's perfectly sculpted beats to meticulously manicured percussion and a carefully interwoven pixie-like narrative, it's a journey to lose yourself in. Musically transcendent, it radiates warmth and will no doubt create a bevy of soulful moments both on the dance floor and during home listening sessions.

The companion piece 'Gateway' comes in decidedly deeper and moodier. Unique and groovy, it showcases an esoteric side of Roger’s repertoire. The rhythmic affinity it commends cannot be overstated,as layers of percussion, pensive arps and acidic stabs unite in a hip swinging dance floor jaunt. A colourful break heightens emotion before melting down to a haze of astral sonics, as the groove drops for a funky final act. It rounds out what is an astute EP from Roger, making for another memorable addition to Higher States' growing discography.
