Reflections of the Sun

by Mirage



Since making their debut as Plastic Fantastic in 2014, John Clements and Erik Wulff-Eng have delivered some of the most inspired Balearic grooves and sun-kissed soundscapes of recent times. They’re at it again on their last must-check EP, Reflections on the Sun, which sees them pitch up on NuNorthern Soul under a lesser-known alias, Mirage.

The Oslo-based pair boasts a seemingly innate ability to create spellbinding, sunset-ready soundscapes and warm, rush-inducing club cuts. Both of these strands come together on a two-track missive that tends towards the epic, immersive and grandiose.

Opener “Reflections of the Sun” is nothing short of stunning. We like to think of it as a 13-minute voyage of discovery that subtly shifts focus on route to an uplifting, life-affirming conclusion. Initially ambient, dreamy and becalmed thanks to drifting chords and eyes-closed guitar solos, the track brilliantly gathers pace via chiming, cyclical lead lines, thrusting beats and a trance-style arpeggio bassline that recalls some of the greatest “Scandolearic” moments to come out of Norway’s capital city. When the groove fades to reveal a poignant, piano-laden conclusion, we guarantee you’ll be sweaty, breathless and full to the brim with joy.

The EP’s other track, “Endless Ocean” is a slowly building masterpiece. After a hushed, atmospheric opening, the track bubbles away on waves of hazy bongo beats, lapping water sounds and seductive chords before rushing skywards in a kaleidoscopic swirl of trance-style synthesizer lead lines, echoing electronics and picturesque piano motifs.
