Pathway - Eric Maltz (Flower Unit)

Title: Pathway
Artist: Eric Maltz
Label: Flower Myth
Cat Number: FM001
Genre: Techno

A1: Pathway
A2: Ah-Shu-De-Ou
B1: Line Through

This is Eric Maltz’s first release since he became the only artist besides Levon Vincent to record on Novel Sound, and from this it’s easy to see why. ‘Pathway’ sounds like Vincent in his pomp, a driving bass, offset by rigorous, clapping percussive and off-key synth notes backed by cosmic swirls. The other two tracks are more subtle: ‘Ah-Shu-De-Ou’ plays with vocal tones pushed through a mixer which harmonise and polyphonically align, becoming the beat. ‘Line Through’ is the releases mellow moment, fluffy and diaphanous. Some nice tones in there, and a contrast to what went before.
