Silk Textures 03 | Compiled & Mixed by Da Funk
Release Number: SILKTXC03
Release Date: October 14, 2014
Silk Textures is thrilled to release its third album, "Silk Textures 03," mixed and compiled by Da Funk, the sensational Swiss producer and DJ. Da Funk not only has been an active musician for nearly two decades, but he is also the founder of the acclaimed Acryl Music label.
It is our great honor to announce that Da Funk is now the leading ambassador of our imprint, having recently embraced the role of the "Silk Textures" radio show host.
A long-standing show on Proton Radio, "Silk Textures" recently reached #1 on the San Francisco-based, underground dance music station.
Da Funk's continuous mix includes 17 deep, groovy, and lush cuts: from Luis Junior's classic, deep-diving remix of MUUI's "Confetti In Her Hair" to Pole Folders's evocative rendering of Mindaugas Jak's "Persona." Previous Silk fan favorites on the album include LTN's uplifting remix of "Falling" by Blood Groove and Kikis, as well as Shingo Nakamura's visionary take on Orion and J.Shore's "The Night After."
Four of the album tracks are previously unreleased. Specifically, Brazilian talent Matheus Teston (a.k.a. DAAVAR), a veteran of our Arrival division, offers "Changes," which centers on a smooth and sexy bassline, as well as a provocative vocal theme. First-time British contributor Yuri Shavel offers the more up-tempo "Mysterious Island," the highlight of which is a gorgeous vocal motif and piano-themed breakdown.
Russian artist Stereoteric, who previously appeared on Silk Sofa, offers the imaginative and truly outer-worldly "My Land." Meanwhile, fellow Russian talent Stendahl, who has contributed several standout cuts to parent label Silk Digital recently, serves up the deliciously deep and seductive "Europeland."
As an added bonus, the intro track on Da Funk's continuous mix by the man himself (Da Funk-Mad Satin) is taken from a forthcoming release on his own imprint, Acryl Music.
This compilation offers Da Funk's fans a glimpse of his acclaimed DJ style: fluid, compositional, and soothing, yet powerfully emotive.
Silk Music cordially invites you to kick back and relax to the sensual and soulful vibes of Da Funk, as well as numerous other core artists on Silk Textures.
