The four artists who compromise Esoteric Creations still have a ways to go, particularly in the area of production, but they're clearly onto something. "To Love" matches a soulful & wispy female vocal with a laidback rapper. It's a combo that generates an infectious groove, but it's undermined by a sound mix that allows the music to overwhelm the vocals. That's a consistent issue on the group's other tracks, as well. "Gold" has reflective, sometimes melancholy melodies amid a nice swirl of synthesizers, percussion effects and a speedy male rap flow, while "Flow" rides a slinky, sonically seductive water metaphor, but the mixes on both songs again are not all they need to be. Keep working, folks.
