Stream: Hidden Resort – Pathways EP on Soundz

Pathway EPEarlier this year we caught up with HOBO to discuss the revival of his label Soundz. Around the time of the interview X Volume 1 was released featuring a variety of intriguing sounds and textures from various artists, and this past week Soundz has followed up with an EP release from Hidden Resort.

“Pathways has been a really integral part of my DJ sets for months now. It took a while to get the whole release together, and during the process it drew a couple signing offers from respected labels, so I’m very proud to be able to have it coming out on Soundz.” – Hidden Resort

Pathways is a five track EP with three originals from Hidden Resort and two remixes from HOBO and JPLS, respectively. Adhering to the vision of the label, each track stands alone as a fine piece of electronic material, but is still capable of doing serious work on the right dance floor. Hidden Resort didn’t crank out typical groovers for this release; quite the contrary actually. Precise sound design and emotive musical rhythms are the name of the game here, and are perfect for the dance floor and the living room alike.
