Paul Walter – No Boundaries EP [Malonian]
The German label Malonian presents it’s eight pressing in the form of “No Boundaries EP” signed by Austrian artist Paul Walter. The 12” features four fresh tracks designed with experimental rhythms and textures that are ready to blow your mind. Based in Hanover, the imprint previously released amazing music from artists like Sedee, Fusal, Msdeep, Cally, Fabe, Andrei Ciubuc & Frost.
Paul Walter was introduced to the world of electronic music at the age of 15 when he started to attend Flex’s “Crazy” event series in Vienna. A couple of years later he started to throw his own parties, gaining experience and slowly making waves in the local scene. In 2011 he caught the attention of Do Easy Records founder and was promptly welcomed into the family. After years of practising and understanding rhythm and sound, he started his own imprint Meduka Records, which serves as a publisher for his own productions as well as for his good friend Felix Rupprecht. He also collaborated with Mode Of Expression, Harlo, Neostrictly, Patch Series and Catren.
The producer’s liking for oddball sounds reflects very well on this EP, which brings forward a peculiar take on modern electronica. The title track “No Boundaries” is pretty self-expressive and opens the wax with a blend of acid, electro and minimal percussion, while you can also hear Stephen Hawking talking about cosmology in the background. The second cut titled “Unter” is very hard to link to a specific genre. The rhythmic pulsations and synth notes create a harmonic resonance without necessarily aiming for a push, being designed more like an unconventional tool.
On the B-Side we first find “Planet Ilum”, a wacky take built with swirling effects and heavy modulations. The drumming here sticks to a very minimalistic pattern which undergoes several variations and filters. Closing the wax there’s “Planet Earth”, a deep and introspective composition focused on long bright pads and eerie voices. The abstract yet forward-thinking EP already enjoys early support from the likes of a:rpia:r, Sonja Moonear, Barac, Fabe and Sedee, so make sure this ends up in your collection.
