T.Williams astounds with 'Sodality Vol. 2"

“A step further into making house music with zero boundaries” is how London artist T.Williams describes the second installment of his Sodality series, Sodality Vol. 2. The four track EP provides a snapshot of his current taste in music and is overflowing with a myriad of different influences on his style, past and present.

The EP opens with “The Hive,” one of two tracks on the release co-produced with James Jacob. What would be normally considered conflicting percussive beats and falling synths are expertly weaved together providing a nice introduction to the release. “Mississauga” opens with a seemingly live percussion beat not heard in popular music for decades that is quickly juxtaposed with synthetic synths and a normal “normalized” house beat. The two sides find a comfortable equilibrium, leaving the listener enthralled. “Lacuna Pursuit,” the second track co-produced with James Jacob, sets its tone with an infectious jazz influenced percussion and bass that’s immediately underscored by a driving beat and an ever-expanding synth, providing direction not normally seen within house music. In the closing track “Depths,” T.Williams truly does take one deeper, one bar at a time. The bass takes on a complete fullness only momentarily losing its inviting softness throughout the track.

The laying required to make such a complex yet coherent EP is worthy of note—the melding of such seemingly conflicting influences in every track is remarkable. This is definitely one EP you should not miss. Pick up a copy on iTunes today.
