Tony Gerber I have many of Craig's albums over the years. In fact, I released several on my Space for Music label a few years back, but this is an inspired combination and the mix of Marvin's liquid guitar goes perfect juxtaposed to Padilla's classic synth sounds. Super cool and glad to have this one at hand on my iphone to listen in the car... :)

Berkdrums ‘A match made in heaven’... I would say. Immediately after the first chords and synth-waves it’s obvious to me: this is going to be great! Maybe I’m the only one here but I hear so many influences, from Alan Parsons (halfway during ‘Toward The Horizon’), to Pink Floyd, and Erik Wøllo (Marvin Allen uses sounds, vibes and soloparts in the same feel/flow, although he definitely has his own, somewhat more heavy sound..), and Craig of course is totally himself, and that’s a good thing, because the combination of who they are as musicians works so well... And man, as I am not really a fan of the Berlin-schoolsound, I really love the way it’s used on this album!! You can really hear and feel the freshness of their collaboration, the challenges within the music they create. For me the flowing, beatless, dreamy synthparts with guitar-effect-sounds, (Marvin creates amazing stories on his guitar during those parts..) couldn’t be long enough.., just love it.. Congrats gentlemen on this amazing match and superb album! More of this to come I hope...

Pulsing with life and vibrant energy, TOWARD THE HORIZON is a striking collaboration that combines electronic music veteran Craig Padilla’s analog and digital synth mastery with the electric guitar wizardry of Marvin Allen. Working together for the first time, these two skilled musicians have crafted a masterful free-flowing dreamscape that moves through a myriad of moods, revealing the many colors of an ever-changing sonic skyline. Melodic and rhythmic, surreal and drifting, the resulting music is a timeless adventure through illuminating guitar tonalities and majestic synthesizer vistas.

TOWARD THE HORIZON is spacemusic in every sense. Hypnotic, captivating, dreamy, and vivid, the music drifts from electronic soundscapes to atmospheric textures, at times swirling and spinning through dazzling sequences and epic soaring refrains. Craig Padilla’s unmistakable deep-space synthworlds blend effortlessly with Marvin Allen’s textural electric guitar, blurring the line between the sound sources to create the quiet moments that make up the album’s ambient foundation. During the more intense moments, Allen’s powerful guitar phrases are a major force, punctuating Padilla’s refined and structured sequences that ricochet through the album’s sonic stratosphere.
