'Hive' represents the first official release for Mayten following self-released singles '828' and 'Detours' in addition to 2016's Notation LP. The record has a bit of an uptempo nature to it due to its quickly moving percussive flciks that contrast its soothing chord structures flawlessly. Swirling back melodies rain down from above as Mayten layers a series of different synth rhythms and pad structures over one another, careful never to let the production become too cluttered. All of this falls graciously on one of the easiest going atmosphere's we've heard yet while remaining a viable a dance floor option at all hours of the evening.
