About this item
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 now well underway and Maltz returns with another fresh look from his delectable audio wardrobe.
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 4x4 throb. A synth solo hides deep under the layers as Maltz adventures into the dark chasms of thought gaps. Proving himself to be quite the unique and individual producer is our Eric, with little regard to whatever Fact and RA might be buzzing off this month, he's quietly developing his own infectious sound.
