PAN deliver a quite wonderful album in Lifted, a rather special collaborative project initiated by Andrew Field-Pickering of Future Times. Working with Matthew Papich, aka Co LA, the man known as Max D called on some highly talented friends to contribute to this debut Lifted album with Jeremy Hyman, Motion Graphix, Gigi Masin, Dawit Eklund and Jordan GCZ all featuring. Unlike much of their personal outputs, Lifted only use house and techno as a tool on which to base their diverse and abstract range of sounds, a primary base or starting point if you will. Tracks like "Intoo", "Bell Slide" and "Mint" are loosely held together by a pulse which resembles a beat, while much of the rest of the LP is coated in a deeply rich and deeply melodic air, verging onto almost jazzy territories in parts. It's certainly an interesting new project and a perfect addition to the PAN dynasty.
