- Reflectors by Nickolas Mohanna
I've reviewed a couple of discs by this guy before. Namely 'Optics' on Slow Flo and also 'Transmission Hue' on Low Point, both of which I really got quite into. This new offering is equally as submersive in many ways with its wonderful guitar and synthesizer sounds which shimmer and hover, occupying a total blissed and very lovely world. The final disc in Preservation's ongoing "Circa" series, it's a fine way to conclude this mind melting collection of releases. I cannot even remember where this series began, they're all just brain melting. A testament to the potency and cerebral power of the releases involved I would say. Nickolas's offerings to the cause here are equal part techno sine wave mutations and something more personal which is difficult to articulate. The sounds fizz, bleep, mutate and evolve in all sorts of unexpected ways where old synthesizer techniques cross paths with more advanced modes. Essentially electronic music with a trained eye looking to the past but also one looking straight ahead into an unknown future. By the time I reached 'Glows Lush In The Night' I was on the very edge of nodding off to sleep but a few sounds reeled me back to consciousness. 'Particles' ends the trip with some fantastic rhythmic electronics which peak into synth bliss outs and such like. A real head scorcher if you let it in. Stop reading and just listen as this will do the job perfectly. Class action.
