Moscow-based label Silk Music is gearing up to release the third edition of their Only Silk series, and here at LessThan3 we’re thrilled to present three exclusive tracks from the album. With a range of styles on offer, all three cuts should give you a distinctive taste of one of the most diverse and promising labels on the the scene.
Ranging from progressive trance, to deep house, and all the way down into chillout, Silk certainly has their bases covered. But rather than a mishmash of different genres all thrown together, there’s a commonality running through the label’s output–a smooth and lush sound that runs deep through their DNA, and it’s on full display here.
The compilation is split into two parts, with each half receiving a continuous mix. The first mix alone–presided over by label founder Max Flyant–ranges from the ethereal progressive trance of LTN and Kokai’s Just Believe–featuring stunning vocals from US singer Arielle Maren–to the deep house-tinged efforts of Manchester-based Universal Solution, and his groovy yet hypnotic track Pressure Point. Meanwhile, over on part two, progressive legend Shingo Nakamura offers up his debut mix for the label, culminating in a remix of his own classic Hakodate–a sublime chillout/breaks rework from Brighton producer Sinerider.
It’s tricky to sum up such a diverse offering in a single sentence, but put simply–if you want an epic and mind-altering journey through the best of progressive and deep trance, with a touch of house and the odd smattering of ambient, then get your hands on Only Silk 03, and we’ll catch you on the other side.
