Cera Alba's journey into electronic music first began back in 1992. Even at such a young age his affiliation with the classic house sound was obvious, especially in the cassettes he asked his parents to buy him, looking at early electronic groups like Inner City, K.W.S and The Shamen. Although it was his father who exposed him to a world of alternative music including classical, jazz and rock. It was this exposure at a young age, which helped define his passion and shape the music he writes today.
2004 was a definitive year as it was the start of his career as a producer and an artist. He moved to Leeds to study at university, it was the exposure to this music-enveloped city that drove this determination to become a musician. After becoming a regular at underground house nights such as Back To Basics, Dirty Disco, mono_cult and Louche he soon fell in love with underground electronic music and the part the DJ played. The summer of 2007 saw him travel to work on the Balearic island of Ibiza. It turned out to be an experience that changed this life. Half way through the season he returned to Leeds to sell his car and buy his first pair of 1210's. This was the turning point and after 6 months of hard work spent in his bedroom, he eventually started to play out some small parties around the city.
It was while he was at university that he started taking his first into writing music. He painstakingly taught himself music theory and started to develop his own production techniques. This then became his calling and he still strives to push and develop his sound to the highest possible standard. He is a dedicated fan of the pioneers and his productions tend to deliver tight shuffling percussion, groove driven bass lines, alluring vocal cuts and harmonic melodies. Never one to be stereotyped in one genre, he often pulls on a wide range of influences when creating his music.
The future is looking bright for this fledgling producer and is already a well-established DJ in the UK and Europe. Over the past few years he has played at some of the best clubs and venues in the world including Space Ibiza, Watergate, ADE, Hideout Festival, Sankeys Ibiza & many more.
