"A duo from Mexico"

A duo from Mexico who go by the name Lights On Ceres shoot me into orbit with a spacey synthpop romancer named Moon Dance. We leave the constraints of earth’s gravity behind us we float languorously into the cosmos, illuminated in the soft glow of the disco funky electro aria, its chilled out blend of M83, Bag Raiders, and Digitalism a welcome escape from the banality of daily life. - I Heart Moosiq

"Lights On Ceres"

Woahhhh. I’m definitely enjoying the space vibes in this track, “Ceres” is a dwarf planet and that’s a space joke. Definitely a throwback to the Tron era (just wait till the second breakdown hits around 2 minutes in) and a time when weird 80s influenced music with groovy synths was a thing. I miss the 80s. Tron: Legacy was also better than most of you people thought it was. - Salacious Sound


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Our names are Alberto Espinosa and Pablo Zarate, we're musical duo from Mexico called Lights On Ceres, and we've been working on our project for about 5 years now. We've gone through different names, producers, labels, investors, and eventually decided to launch our project independently. 

A little backstory:

Alberto Espinosa was in a Mexican pop rock band called Nikki Clan from 2006 to 2010. He was the bass player and backup vocals of the group. They were a hit with their debut album which went gold. In 2011, Alberto started working with Pablo Zarate as a musical duo called Fenix. They pitched their project to Mexican labels in 2012 and 2013 but were upset that their sound didn't feel genuine by the restrictions in production freedom. Their friend Juan Mercado, joined their team to help them out and invested in their project's needs and started contacting producers. In 2014, they got a placement in the independent Mexican movie Casi 30 (currently streaming on Netflix). With that placement in line, they found a way to contact Gardner Cole (composer of Madonna's “Open Your Heart”, who also worked with artists ranging from Nile Rodgers to the Jackson's) and show him their music. He was really excited and they started working on their EP together from 2014 to 2015.
