Review by admireArt
3 stars "Soniq Variants", 2011, is Alpha Wave Movement's aka Gregory T. Kyryluk way of approaching the " World Music" genre, meaning that in it you will find more than a lot of that style's more influential artists manners in the form of influences.

To name Deep Forest or Enigma will be more than enough for those aquainted with that world of music, although this sole genre ranges from Lee "Scratch" Perry to Loreena McKennitt to Manu Chao to Mano Negra to even the highly famous and still could not care less about fame Enya, to Peter Gabriel's immense label catalogue and all that falls in between.

To pin it down, this release holds dearly its primitive roots yet as a visitor in a strange land, AWM never stops translating these influences into his own native language and this turns out to be the real deal in this album.

What to expect? Its compositions are kept under a minimal use of instrumentation relying more on linear melodic lines created by isolated synth sequences and flows, very much in tune with Berlin School's canons yet deprived of its possible complexity in favour of attractive simplicity and its percussions go through the same filters, wisely.

AWM's musical language and charismatic hooks are never lost in these sonic variants yet its direct influences never stop being a brighter light somehow overshadowing AWM's own highlights, of course if you already have heard these outside of prog influences.

***3.5 PA stars.
