There are very few with the musical sphere that have managed to maintain the energy and drive behind their creativity for twenty odd years. Ideas begin to flicker and fade whilst inspiration can wander with time. However, Eric maltz is a producer whom seems to be entering a new chapter of his career some twenty years since he first began producing.
A trained pianist with a penchant for house and techno he found himself releasing on Levon Vincent's Novel Sound record label last year, no small feat to say the least. Since then he has continued to hone and perfect his craft and he has recently returned with a new EP for Flower Myth, a blend of well crafted techno somewhat melodically inspired yet still dark and driven.
We invited him to take us through eight tracks which he does in a splendid fashion. See below:
"There was so much incredible music happening in NYC in the 90’s. Electronic, Hip Hop, Rock n Roll, is was all there. It’s impossible to include all the great and important songs being made at the time in only 8 tracks. Rather than play historian, I decided to make a list of what I was actually listening to at the time, revisiting the music that made me who I am today."

Abducted (T Power Mix) - Dj Soulslinger
I first heard this on This Is Jungle Sky Vol. 1 when I was 14 or 15 in a friends car on the way to summer school. I still remember this dreamlike impression it made on me, the wash of percussion sent my imagination to this purple sunset-like ocean. I went to the Liquid Sky shop pretty regularly after that, to buy their records and clothes, and would get super starstruck whenever I saw Dj Souslinger there. I’ve listened to this entire compilation, and the volumes that followed, countless times. This music has left a deep impression on me.
