For The Nursery's 20th release - an anniversary in itself - the Argentinian music machine Vladw makes his second appearance on Dynamic Reflection's sub label. And quite an appearance it is. Even after putting out an insane amount of music since 2013, a stagnation in his productions is still nowhere to be found. Exactly one year after his first contribution to the label, his 'Lucid Minds EP' hits the surface, and to say that it does its name justice would be an understatement. It floats from the acidic influences found in 'Here, nobody surrenders' and 'The history will absolve me', to the straight forward vibe on the second track, and the beautiful soundscape on the third. Even with this seemingly huge variety in styles, all of them are executed with equally high skill and ear for detail. This compelling composition of four very divergent tracks underlines Vladw's talent and creativity, and to choose one favourite from it would be near impossible.
