Ben Pearce‘s ‘Ascension EP’ is a four-track house gem that takes the listener on a journey, starting with blissed-out opener, ‘Intro’ and building in momentum throughout. Proceeding track ‘Transit’ introduces choppy high-hats and introspective synths, followed by mega-banger ‘The Middle’, all arpeggiated basslines and delay-affected chords. EP-closer ‘Crescent’ takes the forward-thrust of ‘The Middle’ and brings it up a notch with uplifting, melodic high notes underpinned by a swell of warm bass. Nice one.
“Ascension is the first EP out of a 4-part concept series that will allude to Ben’s own life, career and experiences in the music industry. Each EP will tie together yet have its own meaning, with conceptual visuals dropping throughout the year to accompany the musical journey.” – Broadway World
