S!LK debuts on Piston with his three tracker Argo’s Lullaby. Italian born but raised in USA and South America S!LK has carved out a name for himself among his peers with superb releases across many labels. When DJing he likes to keep things interesting while mixing up genres and keeping the floor pumping. In producing he adds atmospherics in unlikely places with top results and it is this type of workmanship that gains lots of respect.
First up we have the deep Argo’s Lullaby with its smooth intro boasting a low end kick and layered percussions building effortlessly. Nice and tight arrangements which give off a rhythmic vibe as cool FX add textures in the background. A subtle intensity builds in the sound as we head to the break where wonderfully layered sounds create a stunning atmosphere with a groovy edge. Great stuff that will do well in those deeper loosened up sets.
Mutafuka Say is up next and gets right into the groove as chunky kicks are contrasted with crispy hats and tight drum patterns. Deep chords provide a solid groove and sit perfectly in the sound. Vocal samples add a very cool dynamic and come to the fore on the break with great effect. After the break we settle into a relentless hypnotic groove for the duration. Top notch stuff and not to be missed.
Red Pill intros with a cool percussion arrangement before punchy kicks take over with a smooth vocal sample in the background. Deep house synths take us up to a super groovy bassline that gives the track a dancey vibe. Expertly crafted drum patterns keep the rhythms flowing as those synths dominate the track. Superb cut from S!LK that will no doubt turn a few heads.
