“This FACT mix is a light-footed dubstep session from Silkie, one of the genre’s finest modern operators.
A member of West London’s Anti-Social Entertainment collective, Silkie’s debut album City Limits Vol. 1 remains one of dubstep’s best full-lengths, staying close to the genre’s half-step traditions but elevating them with golden synth and brass melodies. On this year’s follow-up, City Limits Vol. 2 (released on June 23), 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 into the mix. For those disenamored with the stodge and sludge that’s become more and more frequent in dubstep, Silkie’s your Nurofen.
Silkie’s FACT mix is entirely made up of his own material, and draws heavily from his new album. If you like what you hear, he’ll be playing back-to-back with Quest at the City Limits Vol. 2 launch party at South London’s Cable club on June 17. Support comes from Loefah & Boddika, Hatcha, Mumdance, V.I.V.E.K. and more.”
