Craig Williams & Pantheon
No Neon builds on a fantastic first EP with a fine follow up from Craig Williams & Pantheon. Williams is a long time underground talent who has released on Snatch!, Get Physical and Club Sweat and worked with Green Velvet on his album, while Australian producer and DJ Pantheon is head tastemaker of Unknown Records who counts iconic artists Paul Oakenfold, Jamie Jones, Steve Lawler and Riva Starr as fans.
Says Williams, "When Joseph Pantheon and I got into the studio we sat down, had a look at all the equipment, and chose a few key machines to work with and let them dictate the record. The obvious one you hear running through the track with the arpeggio line is the Arp 2600 clone. Once we started jamming the Arp with a couple of the drum machines the sketch came together really quickly.”
As such, Division is a lush house track with progressive melodies that take you ever higher. It's got supple drums that get you in a trance and plenty of astral mods that really make a mark.
