SILKIE (Deep Medi/Anti Social) at Stealth for Basslaced (08/07/11)

SILKIE (Deep Medi/Anti Social)

Silkie’s rise to prominence has been documented by several high profile achievements, including the acclaimed release of his 2010 City Limits Vol.1 album on Deep Medi and being personally chosen by Mala to feature on Mary Anne Hobbs’ legendary Generation Bass show.

On this year’s follow-up, City Limits Vol.2, the dubstep template is still intact, but things are more nimble than ever before, with slickly swung drums and nods to vintage rave and hardcore thrown in for good measure. Check out the mix he did last month for our good friends FACT Magazine, showcasing all the tracks on City Limits Vol.2 right here.

Proving to be the most popular track on the record so far, in regards to people buying it, is 'Untitled' which is a collaboration with dubstep behemoth Skream.

A member also of West London’s Anti-Social Entertainment collective, staying close to the genre’s half-step traditions but elevating them with golden synth and brass melodies. Check out a snippet of a show Silkie hosted back in Christmas of 2009 on Rinse FM.

So get down to Stealth tonight for what is set to be one to be remembered and not to be missed.
