Baths "Maximalist"

If Toro Y Moi had the chops of Matmos and the beat savoir-faire of FlyLo, it might sound something like "Maximalist." Though he hails from the Valley, the LA-area solo producer known as Baths has a forthcoming full-length on Anticon, and the woozy Dilla-like beats and gauzy samples of this piece show that he certainly deserves our attention. Though it is tempting to place Baths within the same realm as glo-fi or chillwave or whatever funny name it has this week, there is certainly more funk and texture to "Maximalist" than the more hazy, sunny works of his peers.
