Miami-based house producer Eran Hersh connects with South Africa’s Kasango for their captivating collaboration “Ascension,” a sensational single catapulted by mystifying Afro house vibes, serving as the latest offering to rise from the Insomniac Records imprint.

With the power to lift spirits into another realm, “Ascension” is the melding of two authorities over the global house scene. Eran Hersh and Kasango have both been leaving their mark on the afro house movement and are now oscillating in perfect unison together with their new single. Propelled by soul-touching incantations, the tribal vocal chants help underpin the track’s brooding energy. Its arresting harmonies and moody hook articulate an air of enlightenment, while perfectly layered percussion accents the spaces between awe-inspiring pads, echoing vox, graceful piano chords, and swirling synth leads.

Kasango asserts that “Ascension” strikes an optimal balance between their signature styles. “This track is more than just a mix of our energies,” he says. “It symbolizes our individual journeys in the music industry and how we’ve evolved in our unique paths.”

The South African producer also doesn’t hold back his excitement over collaborating with his Miami-based counterpart for the first time. “I’ve long been a huge fan of Eran Hersh’s music. We finally got on a call, and then, over the following month—despite our hectic touring schedules —we figured out the perfect song to work on together. We made it happen with ‘Ascension.’”

The collaboration arrives at a time when both producers are reaching new heights for their respective careers; some would say they are charting their own ascension musically.

Steadily honing his craft in South Africa over the past decade, Welkom-born Kasango broke through to worldwide recognition in 2021 with the back-to-back success of his singles “Osama” and “Closer,” both of which were categorized as ‘Song of the Year’ by premiere outlets Mixmag and DJ Mag. With household names like Black Coffee, Miss Monique, Nora En Pure, Themba, and Eelke Kleijn championing his music, Kasango is looking to retain his explosive trajectory in 2024.

Originally hailing from Israel, Eran Hersh is a Miami transplant making waves in house music. The fast-rising producer returns to Insomniac Records after his internationally renowned debut last year, which saw him delivering a riveting rendition of Madonna’s dancefloor classic “Sorry” alongside BLOND:ISH and Darmon. The track has amassed more than 28 million streams to date, drawing support from Billboard, Beatportal,, as well as garnering radio plays from BBC Radio 1 (‘Saturday Dance Anthems’), Kiss FM, Diplo’s Revolution, KCRW, and many more.

“Ascension” is a breathtaking afro house single from two talents that continue to raise the bar for the global genre.

Eran Hersh and Kasango’s new single “Ascension” is available on all platforms via Insomniac Records.
