Silky has been well known on the international music circuit for over 10 years, whilst making a solid name for his skilled and technical music productions behind the scene for some time.
Originally mentored by the ‘Godfather of House’ Frankie Knuckles, Silky is a vinyl-lover at heart and his old-school mixing techniques and exclusive cutting edge track selections only serve to amplify his roots in early electronica, house and techno. However, what is the sound of Silky? It can only be described as innovative and captivating deep underground music, dark and emotive yet driving and uplifting.
His career has seen him work regularly alongside some of the biggest talents in the industry, as well as headlining events globally. 2012 has been a particularly strong year with a number of releases/remixes and attention from Magazines such as DJ Mag amongst other online publications.
His latest single, a collaboration with Canada's My Favorite Robot (Crosstown Rebels, Visionquest), a dark, acid-tinged cover of the Tears for Fears classic SHOUT entered straight into the Beatport Indie Dance & Nu Disco chart at No. 25 in December and is still currently climbing. With heavy support throughout the summer from the likes of Seth Troxler, Noir, Clive Henry, Andrew Grant, Droog and many more.
Kicking off the New Year by playing the opening of BPM Festival in Mexico, 2013 will see Silky launch his new record label ‘Faceless Music’ alongside good friends Climbers and Barber, and will see him release a number of very exciting solo singles and collaborations with some of the industry’s most revered artists.
One thing’s for certain, 2013 is set to be Silky’s biggest year to date.
