Our friends down under have done it again. Our friend Boyd Barnes, who is a member of Unknown Associates out of Sydney/Wollongong, continues to keep me in the know about amazing House music coming out of his collective. Having met Boyd a couple years ago on Holy Ship, I’m proud to say I’ve posted a few of his collective’s tracks over the years, but that’s just a taste of how much awesomeness they’ve released altogether (listen HERE and HERE). Last week Unknown member Pantheon dropped his Lock It Down EP and upon hearing it my body immediately started to move.
The two-song EP by Pantheon is a complete House banger. If you know the way to my heart you know it’s with a fat bass line and four-on-the-floor beats. That’s exactly what Lock It Down delivers. If you still use the word G-House to describe music then you’ll probably use that to describe both “Lock It Down” and “This is Something”. Personally speaking, “This is Something” takes the cake for me with such a fun melodic sound mixed with vocals and that fat bass line – it’s a sure-shot party starter. “Lock It Down” has some nice chopped and screwed vocal hooks and overall the EP is a gem.
