“A Better Place” is the first-ever release of Nicol and wow… What an entrance! This is a gorgeous concoction between electronic and organic elements in a manner that’s reminiscent of Jesper Ryom.

It’s the florid sound design paired with the exquisite textures on here that initially grabbed my attention, particularly towards the second drop when the glittery arp and soothing pads seep into the mix. The drums have this raw quality to them too and this gives the track a lofi touch to it next to the array of glossy synth works.
