After having shared his "Trails" single last month, Connect label co-founder Rioux returns to XLR8R with a fresh freebie, the aptly titled "Maze1." The DJ/producer's new production drives in a multitude of directions, heading through sentimental vocals, sleek synth arrangements, and soft woodwind constructions. It's a simultaneously pensive and spirited production, as the forlorn tone of the fragmented voices juxtapose with an array of bright, lustrous keys. For those interested in experiencing Rioux's heartfelt arrangements live, information for his upcoming show at Brooklyn's Glasslands Gallery on February 27 can be found here.
