I must admit, classic Flux Pavilion tends to be more my style than recent Flux Pavilion. But the Circus Records co-owner is an integral part of the scene regardless and I would be amiss to completely disregard his newest release. The Freeway EP might not be his finest work to date, but that doesn’t mean it steers completely clear of any impressive moments. “Gold Love” and, more importantly, “Mountains and Molehills” still carry that classic Flux Pavilion sound that delivers a seriously impressive wall of bass smashing into your eardrums. Of course, for the more open-minded bass head, this EP might still do the trick. Collaborations with Steve Aoki and Dillon Francis show off a side of Flux that demonstrates an interest in electro and moombahton accordingly. Overall, the EP shows some desire for expansion into new fields, yet an ability and willingness to still produce what his original fans have come to love him for.
