Blossoming melodic house producer Jerro has cultivated the attention of fans and industry professionals alike with each subsequent release in his catalogue. Notable releases from this year include his Anjunadeep debut with ‘Tunnel Vision’ and collaborative single ‘Holywell’ with OCULA on This Never Happened. As he continues to define his place in the electronic music realm, Jerro returns to the release radar with an immaculate five-track offering, ‘Closer’ on Lane 8’s imprint This Never Happened.
Ahead of the release, Jerro teased the ‘Closer’ EP with the mesmerizing lead single ‘Demons’. Featuring Montreal native Sophia Bel, this track effortlessly intertwines Sophia’s graceful vocals with a serene production from Jerro. Following ‘Tunnel Vision’, this is only the second offering from Jerro that features a vocalist, showcasing his increasing versatility in the studio. The EP seamlessly transitions into the second track ‘Mouie’ which capitalizes on Jerro’s melodic prowess with an enchanting sonic environment. The track swells with energy from start to finish with encompassing cinematic elements. The next track on the EP is the title track, ‘Closer’. Blending lines between house music subgenre lines, ‘Closer’ utilizes a subtle vocal overlay over a deeper progressive house melody. The final two tracks, ‘Ignis’ and ‘Sturdy’ provide a seemingly flawless combination of soothing yet hypnotic melodies. ‘Ignis’ lends an atmospheric soundscape while ‘Sturdy’ showcases an engaging progression. Each of the five tracks on the ‘Closer’ EP highlight Jerro’s intricate studio expertise while providing the listener with otherworldly delicate soundscapes.
“I can’t begin to express how excited I am to finally release my ‘Closer’ EP, I personally think it’s my best work to date and This Never Happened is the perfect label for it. The EP has a little something for everyone, ‘Ignis’ and ‘Demons’ are sure to be crowd-pleasers, ‘Mouie’ and ‘Closer’ are great listener tracks and ‘Sturdy’ is one for my dedicated fans. Hope you enjoy!” – Jerro
