Eric Maltz had a busy 2018 with the release of the first two records on his label Flower Myth, the frenetic Pathway EP and the dub-techno informed Estuaries EP. The smashing vocal single Naked Broken followed on Possible Futures as well as a remix for Marlon Hoffstadt, a debut performance at Berlin’s Atonal Festival and to close the year, a live set at Tresor with close friend Levon Vincent whose Novel Sound label released Eric’s 2017 double EP NS-17.
2019 is gearing up to be just as busy and kicks off with “Dream Journal”, two long form cuts for deep dancefloors.
A side “Dream Journal” is one for the REM cycles. A development of Maltz’ signature psychedelic deep house sound, dub sound effects jump in and out of focus, swirling arpeggios pan across the stereo field and a playful piano solo take turns at the center of the stage as a deep bass line and funk-ready drum machine hold the fort.
On the flip, “Subliminal Virgo” is exactly that, hitting with a loose breakbeat and echoes of “Dream Journal” before settling into an unstoppably subby 4×4 throb. A synth solo hides deep under the layers as Maltz adventures into the dark chasms of thought gaps.
Out 22.02.19 on 12″ Vinyl.
