Label boss Madloch returns to 3rd Avenue with a new single entitled ‘Flow State’. With the majority of the Belgian artist’s output being reserved for parent label Sound Avenue, it’s a rare occurrence for Madloch to land on it’s more progressive minded counterpart. May of 2019 did however yield the two track ‘Grindstone’ EP, which found the Belgian artist focusing on the groovier, more esoteric side of the genre. Now making an unexpected return Madloch presents a new single alongside remixes from Subandrio and Beije.

Although becoming increasingly more known for his deep, dubby productions; Madloch explores the tougher, peak time inspired side of his repertoire here. Pulsating and energetic, it’s a creation built around rhythmic drive and tension filled motifs. Piercing tones and percussive flurries steal the air as a warm, fluid groove undulates below. As the first act evolves a hook heavy acid line fades to prominence, before a wave of frayed percussion unleashes emotive chord changes and impassioned overlays. Brief but impactful, the main break pushes the sonic envelope with one final rush of noise to spark an exhilarating finale.

The first interpretation of ‘Flow State’ is provided by Subandrio who makes his label debut. As one of his country’s most highly regarded progressive music talents, the Sri Lankan artist has long been a favourite of genre tastemakers Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren. Releases on Cid Inc’s Replug Records, Beat Boutique, Balance Music and Sudbeat sit prominently in his discography, as he continues to sit amongst the movement’s elite. Now following a remix for Chris Cargo, the Colombo resident debuts on 3rd Avenue with a powerful rendition of ‘Flow State’. Always a creative remixer, Subandrio deconstructs the main elements into newfound themes for what sits as an ideal complement to the original. Atop a tough, full bodied groove comes rippling bass tones, clattering drums and buzzing synths. It’s a remarkable sonic marriage and one which makes for an energetic yet tense journey, feverously peaking as sizzling acid lines burn across the break, before an exhilarating final act puts a cap on this creative gem.

Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of ‘Flow State’ is Beije. The Canadian duo are no strangers to the Belgian imprint having delivered their ‘Novo’ EP in 2019, while a remix for Jeff Eveline’s ‘Crashes In Love’ landed in March of this year. Also finding a home on Manual Music, Sound Avenue and Where The Heart Is, Beije’s fresh take on melodic house has propelled them into one of the genre’s top up and coming acts. Now making a welcome return to 3rd Avenue, the Toronto residents deliver an impassioned take on ‘Flow State’. Glacial lines, ethereal vocal wails and soulful strums unite for a gorgeous blend of sound and colour. Spirited instrumentation gets teased across the break, adding a nostalgic flair before effortlessly shifting energy into a glowing finale. A gorgeous remix from Beije which caps off a welcome return to 3rd Avenue for label boss Madloch.
