SOULARFLAIR - DARK MATTER
 
"Dark Matter" is a top notch accomplishment. Electronica this compelling is rare - and please take the full force of that word to heart. Soularflair manages to blend the energy of driven, dance-oriented dance music, the aura of space music, the psychedelic power of goa and some of industrial's edge to hold the listener in absolute thrall. "Dark Matter" is an ideal name for this CD, though by dark one shouldn't assume ominous or forboding. It is what it is. This ventures into the deepest recesses of both the soul and the uncharted regions of the universe, manifesting its relationship to the glories of space music. It catches us with the irresistible hooks of good dance music and industrial, driving us happily into the journey. It sinks into our mind and buries us in our own brain with hints of goa's psyche power. By drawing from all of these various influences Soularflair's Adam Mannering has succeeded in a marvelous balancing act, ably mixing all the elements together just so to bring about the conjuring of "cerebral electronica," as he most rightly calls it. Here your body and brain find a point of convergence. Turn it up, turn the lights down and send a dance floor across other dimensions. Or, chew some special fungus (or not, with this you don't need it) and ooze into your chair as ruthless introspection takes over. A CD such as this causes one to begin to dribble at the mouth for such effusiveness results one cannot stop babbling about how good it is and one's mouth must continue manufacturing saliva to keep the raving going. Brilliant. (Note: The album was released in 2004 but I just discovered it and I feel it deserves your immediate attention, O readers of reviews and listeners to music.)-- review by Kristofer Upjohn
