Music is a powerful inducer of nostalgia. A song, a melody, a rhythm can take us back to moments both familiar to our memories and to our own inner thoughts. On Reflections Ital Santos takes us through some of his most melodic and beautiful productions to narrate a mostly wordless mental journey that illustrate his own reflections on life and the world. On tracks like “4 Moms” and “Piano II”, he takes the listener into vulnerable tones but still addictive tunes. His thick-bassed drums and funk-sample drenched works have always shown us someone who desires to harness the emotional power of contemporary music for the benefit of the people and on Reflections, Ital delivers one of his most successful, consistent and profound projects yet. Like Gil Scott-Heron’s 1981 album of the same name, the album borrows and samples and covers from great tunes of the last 50 years while also delivering the soulful perspective who lives within the music. Some of the beats within are from previous Santos projects but in different forms, decontextualized and recontextualized to reveal a new side and story. There is so often a sense of world weariness- Ital has always empathized with the working class struggle of his community- and his thoughtful productions assure anyone in the audience that someone else indeed knows that feel of walking through a broken city, feeling broken and wondering if there’s even art to set or derive from it. On Supremo, Ital’s previous life died. On Leifs, Santos was reborn. On Decem, he shared his journey. On Reflections, a more matured soul shares with us the blues, the funk, and the soul that he has learned that cannot be put into letters and sentences.
