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 "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 & Kikis, as well as Shingo Nakamura's visionary take on Orion & J.Shore's "The Night After".

Four of the album tracks are previously unreleased. Specifically, Brazilian talent Matheus Teston (a.k.a. DAVAAR), 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 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.

With his debut artist album officially arriving to stores in a fortnight, American sensation Dan Sieg (of Dan & Sam) has undoubtedly emerged as one of the leaders of Silk Royal. A thrilling series of releases by Dan in the proceeding months begins with "No Way Back Up", the first single from his forthcoming "A Sense Of Wonder" artist album. Dan has never shied away from writing emotive vocal anthems; his past Dan & Sam hit "Walls", featuring Maxx Hennard, proved to be one of the most supported singles in the history of our imprint. It is our great joy to present a new collaboration between Dan and Silk veteran duo Illuminor, who not only have been producing trance & progressive hits of their own of late, but who also are capable of writing and performing breathtaking vocals.

In "No Way Back Up", a gentle breakbeat slowly picks up steam, while a variety of bell-tinged hooks and other supporting melodies contribute a lush soundscape. The patient crescendo ultimately culminates into a stunning chorus by Michael Ware of Illuminor, who sings of the tragic dissolution of a relationship. Michael profoundly delivers the metaphor of a fall too painful and far, from which to recover.

Blugazer's "Ethereal Concepts," one of our favorites from this year's "Silk Royal Showcase 04" compilation, finally receives a full single release on our parent label, including powerfully emotive interpretations by Shingo Nakamura and Piramex. Based in NYC, Blugazer has generated strong buzz in the international trance & progressive community over the last few years, on account of his intricate, visionary productions. His original version is centered on a gentle groove, while a variety of relaxing and lush melodies are equally entrancing. The instrumental themes are quite memorable, yet the most breathtaking effects are provided by an unnamed female vocalist, whose ethereal voice offers a deep catharsis to the listener.

Veteran star Shingo Nakamura, fresh off a wonderful collaboration with Jody Wisternoff and James Grant on the recent "Anjunadeep 06" release, offers a deliciously deep take in the spirit of the original version. Soothing pads and a buoyant rhythm provide the listener with a floating-on-air sensation, while Shingo's signature chords offer uplifting melodic vibes. In the main break, Shingo's gorgeous piano lines, which beautifully coalesce with the vocal stabs, are a welcome addition to the soundscape.

Rising Russian talent Piramex, who recently won our "Both" remix contest, provides a peak-hour rendering, fueled by a ferocious bassline. As the song crescendoes toward the climax, vocal effects and pad layers are added, creating an aura of suspense. In the main break, a reworked vocal sequence soars above an anthemic bassline progression, while a variety of side melodies fill out the soundscape. The thunderous drop to follow is awe-inspiring.

Silk Royal celebrates the work of one of our most accomplished and well-known talents with "Johan Vilborg 01", a collection of standout tracks by the Swedish sensation. In just a few years, Johan has become a household name amongst trance and progressive fans, thanks to a distinctively emotive and uplifting production style. For example, his anthemic remix of Dinka's "Lotus" proved to be a fan favorite, as well as "Record of the Week" on Above and Beyond's "Trance Around The World" radio show (now "Group Therapy"). Johan continues to write inspiring, top-charting tracks, which receive support by the industry elite on a consistent basis. The standout cuts featured in this compilation include the aforementioned "Lotus" remix, as well as his own original hits, such as "Altara" and "Warmer Days". Fans who are unfamiliar with Johan's full oeuvre will be pleasantly surprised to discover deeper shades of progressive represented, as well as two downtempo cuts.

eleven.five's artistic journey reaches a new plateau with "Explanation", a visionary collaboration with new label recruit Meyce. A celestially inspired introduction features an extraordinarily beautiful lead theme. A gentle groove follows, and the lead chords begin to slowly crescendo soon thereafter. As the build approaches the main break, these chords reach a swirling, powerful climax. Just at the moment that the track feels like it will completely erupt, the groove is pulled back, allowing for the re-emergence of the poignant and hopeful lead theme, now backed by a gorgeous flute motif. The drop to follow allows the listener to finally achieve catharsis, as the chords and groove explode with energy and unbridled emotion.

Schodt has been one of the leading musicians on Silk since the label's inception, so we were especially thrilled to present his debut artist album ("Darkness | Light") on Silk Royal last year. One of our favorite tracks on the release was "The Difference In You", which we presented as a bonus track on the iTunes edition. Two internationally acclaimed veterans in our niche, Robert Nickson (a.k.a. RNX) and Blugazer, now offer their visionary interpretations.

A true legend in our industry, thanks to many classic works over the past decade prominently featured on "A State of Trance", Robert Nickson is a proud addition to the roster of our parent label. His remix jets out of the gate with a hypnotic arpeggio, adrenalin-fueled rhythm section, and stormy bassline. Of course, soon to follow is the exhilarating vocal stab sequence from the original mix, as well as a euphoric chord progression. In the main break, Robert adds a few brilliant touches: celestial pads and a heavenly new lead.

Blugazer, another tremendous talent who has dazzled trance & progressive audiences for a few years now, offers an inspiring rework of the original, replete with numerous melodic and vocal variations. A chunky groove and a few gorgeous vocal stabs punctuate the introduction, with the memorable main themes not far behind. Yet, the main break is undoubtedly the highlight of this one, as a gentle breakbeat lays the foundation for a breathtaking emotional climax. The combination of the new piano lead and vocal elements is deeply moving and truly unforgettable.

The mid-summer month of August is often reserved for scenic drives and revitalizing trips to the beach. We're thrilled to present "Summer Selections 01", featuring two cuts that perfectly complement these quintessential summer travel experiences. Both tracks on this EP offer warm, euphoric melodies and exhilarating grooves.

American talent Chomi (a.k.a. Alex Chomik) makes a tremendous debut on our imprint with "She Is", featuring the stunning vocals of Elly. The track centers on a jubilant lead theme and an infectious vocal stab sequence. Elly's vocal first takes hold of the listener at the quarter turn; yet, her lyrics really shine in the main break, where her mellifluous voice and poignant lyrics are supported by a delicate, yet beautiful piano motif. Chomi's layered chords contribute to a thunderous and ecstatic drop.

Swedish label veteran Johan Vilborg offers "Second Wind", one of the standout tracks on "Silk Royal Showcase 04", which arrived earlier this year. Now considered a global star of melodic progressive trance, Johan has consistently written peak-hour cuts that center on inspiring and unforgettable themes. His latest offering features a truly rapturous lead motif, which captures the radiant energy of summer, as well as Johan's own joy, having recently graduated from a prestigious audio engineering academy in his native Sweden.

Dezza, one of the most talented and prolific artists on our imprint, presents a wonderful new two-track EP on our parent label. With numerous contributions to Silk Digital and Silk Royal since 2009, the Canadian producer-DJ continues to write inspiring, club-oriented compositions. Not surprisingly, he has received radio support from the industry elite for the better part of a decade.

The lead track on the EP, "Meekix", begins with an ethereal pad and several delicate melodies. At the quarter turn, we are met by a powerful and uplifting main theme, followed by a driving bassline. In the main break, the numerous melodic layers coalesce, and the subsequent drop is a thrilling climax.

The B-side cut, "Derry", also introduces a memorable lead motif in the early going: an ominous, yet exhilarating theme that crescendoes throughout the first half of the track. In the main break, the theme fully roars, with various layers reinforcing its intensity and emotional resonance.

Silk Textures is thrilled to present "Silk Textures 02", 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 "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 18 deep, groovy, and lush cuts: from Eelke Kleijn's classic remix of Bodytemp's "Kalm" to LTN's soulful rendering of Lian July feat. Eli's "Surrender".  Three of the album tracks are previously unreleased. Specifically, Canadian veteran Simon Sheppard offers "No Looking Back", centering on an infectious vocal riff and vintage deep house bassline. First-time Ukrainian contributor Ivan Vega provides a smooth and evocative gem with "My Own Space". Russian duo Ri9or and Dennis Grek's haunting vocal anthem "You Say" is one of the standout tracks on the release.

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.

One of the most exciting moments for a label is the synergy created by the pairing of veteran musical talents. We are thrilled to present a two-track EP by Norwegian virtuoso Espen and Irish sensation Shane Robinson, both of whom have contributed mightily to Silk in recent years. The release kicks off with "In Motion", which centers on a cavernous groove and a variety of atmospheric pads. At the quarter turn, a recurring melodic motif enters the soundscape, which transports the listener into a deep reverie. The lush pad layers in the break only enhance the mood. The subsequent cut, "In Time", is also a moody, late-night affair, with a richly evocative soundscape. Hypnotic pads float above a subterranean groove, punctuated by nature-inspired samples; the result is a healthy dose of aural therapy.

Blood Groove & Kikis' "Wonderland" artist album proved to be one of Silk's proudest releases to date. The Latvian duo demonstrated why they are being hailed as one of the leading acts in progressive at the moment, with stunning compositions that range from pensive and chilled to uplifting and euphoric. Our imprint is thrilled to present two brand new remixes by AWD and Gregory Esayan of "Afloat", one of our favorite cuts from the album. This particular track features the effortlessly lush vocals of Richard J Aarden.

Rising British talent AWD has experienced a breakthrough year, with radio support from the likes of Chicane and BT. For his second contribution to our imprint, he offers an adrenalin-fueled interpretation. The track jumps out of the gate with a layered bassline, soaring chord progression, and poignant piano arpeggio. Meanwhile, Richard J Aarden's sensitive and soothing voice echoes above. The vocalist is offered a full solo in the main break, where the heartfelt lyrics are especially moving. The drop to follow is flat-out explosive.

Russian veteran Gregory Esayan, a sensational progressive artist who has contributed to various Silk divisions in recent years, offers a more chilled mix. Acoustic guitar and percussion, coupled with Richard's wonderful vocal, are featured in the introduction of the song. At the quarter turn, a more up-tempo groove emerges, as well as a variety of ethereal vocal stabs. The main break is breathtaking, as Richard's titular vocal hook, "Keep it afloat", soars above a sun-soaked soundscape.

Silk Digital's latest offering looks back upon the extraordinary work of Shingo Nakamura, the internationally acclaimed Japanese producer and DJ. Undoubtedly a leading talent on our imprint for many years now, Shingo has contributed several artist albums and countless singles to Silk in the last seven years, many of which remain fan favorites from our back catalogue. His deep and exceedingly melodic brand of progressive house never fails to evoke a wide range of emotions in the listener, running the gamut from the melancholic tones of his classic remix of Soundprank's "Burner" to the pure euphoria of his most famous work, "Sapporo".

The standout cuts featured in this compilation include early works like "Alice In Wonderland" and "I'm With You", as well as the more recent, Above & Beyond-supported "Words Unspoken." These works also showcase Shingo's most notable signature: poignant, classical piano themes, which endure well beyond repeated listens. We're tremendously proud to have worked with Shingo for so many years now. We share our enthusiasm for his music with our beloved fans through "Shingo Nakamura 01".

eleven.five, the veteran American talent, continues to write inspiring and cinematic music, from deep house to trance. His latest single, "The Beginning", was recently featured on Silk Royal Showcase 04 and proved to be one of Tom Fall's favorites on his mix.

The track begins with a euphoric and equally hypnotic arpeggio line, soon followed by a suspenseful piano theme. At the quarter turn, a roaring, multi-layered bass line emerges, which contributes a tremendously powerful low-end force. In the breakdown, the piano and string themes are offered the full spotlight, while the poignant lead arps creep back into the mix. The climactic drop to follow offers a knockout blow.

We're delighted to present a new EP by Sound Quelle on our parent label, the second to arrive on Silk Music this year by the phenomenally talented Russian veteran. An artist who is capable of writing textured and emotive music in numerous sub genres of electronic, Sound Quelle has chosen progressive as his medium of artistic expression this time around.

Already supported on Above & Beyond's "Group Therapy" radio show, "Piece of Cake" jets out of the gate with a stormy groove and an ominous soundscape. Specifically, a haunting vocal sample soars above a beautiful piano motif. In the second half of the track, a roaring drop gives the track a ferocious, club-oriented rhythm. The next track, "Dusk", is also an up-tempo affair, featuring an uplifting chord progression and vocal stab sequence. A memorable lead theme in the main break is processed with an innovative delay effect, and the inspired drop to follow is also suitable for the dancefloor. Rounding out the EP, "Marmalade" is a much deeper cut, centering on a funky bassline. A signature theme of the track is a pitched-down vocal sample, which gently punctuates the summer-flavored groove.

Blood Groove & Kikis are in the midst of an unforgettable year. Their spring 2014 debut album, "Wonderland", is one of our proudest releases to date, and their exceptional work has now been embraced by fans of melodic dance music around the globe, as well as by a litany of acclaimed international DJ's.

The first single on our imprint to follow our recent Silk Royal Showcase 04 compilation release is "Falling" by Blood Groove & Kikis. A euphoric, repeating "teaser" chord crescendoes in the first quarter of the track, leading into the main break, where the listener is finally treated to the full sequence. In addition, ethereal vocal stabs spice up the melodic and sensual flavor of the track. The drop to follow, featuring the rapturous lead synth layers and vocal effects, soaring above a summer-flavored groove, is truly breathtaking.

LTN, an artist who has also gained universal acclaim for his prolific discography in recent years, offers a deeper, yet equally radiant interpretation. Centering on the stunning melodic motifs of the original, LTN's take offers a deep groove from the very beginning, as the synth lines slowly filter into the mix. In the main break and subsequent drop, the melodic themes are almost overwhelmingly lush and beautiful.

Responsible for numerous progressive contributions on our Silk Textures division, Canadian artist Biologik is not a newcomer to the Silk label family. On Silk Sofa, we are proud to present his brand new artist album, "Dreamcatcher", which is a collection of 12 downtempo and experimental tracks.

The album opener, "Winter", kicks off with a haunting, deep atmosphere, consisting of strong percussion elements and intermittent vocal stems. Later, an intriguing synth line brightens up the soundscape. "Velvet" starts out with smooth pad layers, and a combination of captivating melody lines and complex percussion structures brilliantly carries the song to its conclusion. In "Sublimate" we witness well-structured percussion lines, subtle arpeggio melodies, and light string layers in the background. A unique combination of prominent bassline notes and intriguing percussion elements is introduced in "Stars", which also includes a vast array of perfectly harmonized melodic elements. The fifth song is the just recently released "Rainfall", which includes a stunning combination of hard-hitting beat elements and lush, light melody layers. "Hibiscus" is another example of Biologik's great talent for crafting poignant atmospheres, this time with the addition of a notable bassline rhythm. A quite hypnotizing grooves established in "Free Your Heart"; the prominent hihats and underlying floating melodies unite remarkably well. "Feedback Loop" includes mesmerizing pad lines in the background, while a number of well-structured percussion elements provide an unmistakably memorable rhythm. In "Eclipse" we witness a haunting vocal stem, as well as a vast array of tranquil background melodies and subtle sound effects. A captivating soundscape is introduced in "Dreamless Sleep", beautifully accompanied by numerous refreshing percussion stems. "Building Snowmen" consists of a sweeping bassline synth, subtle piano melodies, a lush groove, as well as a truly captivating arpeggio theme line. The final track, "Breaking Mirrors", perfectly represents the album as a whole: intriguing melodies, well-structured and inspiring percussion lines, and hypnotic sound effects, all of which unite in a truly captivating context.

Barzek & Jethimself, hailing from Australia and the USA, present a glorious two-track EP to our parent label. Part of a new generation of melodic progressive house artists, this exciting new duo has a special talent for melodic, soulful, and often romantic compositions.

The lead track on the EP is "Everest", which, all puns aside, is a rewarding journey through a beautiful progressive landscape. In addition to the euphoric lead chords, a string arrangement in the breakdown transports the listener to the spiritual oasis of the Himalayas. This cut is paired with "Genesis", which was already previewed on our recent Silk Royal Showcase 04 release. Evocative instrumentation, with a clear Asiatic influence, highlights this emotionally nourishing gem.

Silk Royal is thrilled to present Silk Remixed 04, the fourth installment of the annual series, featuring various veteran talents and rising stars in progressive. Kicking off the compilation is Nigel Good's jubilant remix of "Sumr" by Dezza & Shoreliners. Fresh off his debut artist album, which reached #1 overall on Beatport, Nigel treats us to a sparkling, complextro-influenced progressive gem, rife with feel-good vibes. Vintage & Morelli, one of the standout artists from Silk's Arrival division, offers a fresh, peak-hour take on "Night Time" by Sound Quelle. A bouncy house rhythm sits below a stormy and evocative lead, punctuated by a haunting vocal sample. The main break is a goosebumps-inducing aural experience, as the vocal motif and piano poignantly coalesce. Aeron Aether's "Synthanelia" still finds a home in our radio and live sets; Jayeson Andel, a breakthrough artist on our imprint, offers a full-on trance stormer with his new rendering, which has received early radio support from Arty. The memorable string themes of the original soar above an adrenalin-fueled, stadium-rocking groove. French talent Matt Fax, another leader of Arrival, offers a new interpretation of one of Silk Royal's early releases, Pconvolve's "Cosmology". As the title implies, celestially-inspired synths transport the listener to the far reaches of the galaxy; a progressive breaks interlude and explosive drop in the latter half of the track are true release highlights. David Broaders closes out the first half of the release with an awe-inspiring interpretation of "Starman" by Gregory Esayan. A thunderous groove resolves into a beautiful piano and string-themed breakdown; these poignant melodies are some of the most enduring from the compilation this year.

New label recruit Illuminor, a rising duo from Australia, add a bit more punch to eleven.five's classic "Pinnacle". A highly innovative groove, as well as new variations on the main piano motif from the original, stand out in this fantastic new version. Trusty label veteran Sundriver offers a driving take on Denis Laurent feat. Kaisa Martina's "All I Need". A vintage lead chord progression, with numerous euphoric synth layers and arpeggios, paves the way for Kaisa's romantic vocal in the breakdown. British sensation Ben Coda, who has contributed in the past to the Silk Remixed series, returns with a peak-hour rendering of Zack Roth's beloved "Tekkadon". A clubby groove crescendoes into the breakdown, where the newly added, trance-influenced lead shines, alongside the memorable original theme. Russian duo Soarsweep, fresh off an EP on parent label Silk Digital, offers another visionary remix; this time, they have accentuated the emotive themes of "Both", originally a collaboration between Blood Groove & Kikis and LTN. Closing out the EP, Harold-Alexis, one of the stars of our chillout division (Silk Sofa), offers a drum & bass rework of Seagrave's "Storm". With bleeding-edge sound design throughout, this emotive track will be appreciated by fans in search of visionary, outside-of-the-box EDM.

One of our favorites from 2013's "Arrival 01: Destination United Kingdom" release was "Sighted", by Polish phenom Kobana. Supported on Above & Beyond's "Group Therapy", it quickly became one of the most identifiable tracks from the compilation. We're thrilled to present two brand new remixes of Kobana's techno-influenced progressive gem by fellow veteran sensations G-Tek and MoodFreak.

Hailing from Panama, G-Tek is one of the original contributors to Silk Digital; it has been our great privilege to witness the range and evolution of his work over the last six years. He has chosen to give "Sighted" a deep, funky, and provocative vibe. A slowed-down, summer-flavored groove centers on the resonant bassline from the original version; meanwhile, a variety of erotic vocal stabs and delicate pads add melodic sustenance.

MoodFreak's take is a deep-progressive affair from the very start. A few familiar motifs from the original, in addition to a plethora of new side melodies and background effects, create an ominous aura. The energy continues to crescendo, suggesting that the suspect has been "sighted" and is now on the loose. The listener is rewarded by the evocative, often cinematic layers in MoodFreak's rendering.

Silk Music is thrilled to present Silk Royal Showcase 04, the fourth installment of the annual series, once again mixed by Jacob Henry and Tom Fall. The compilation is inspired by our weekly radio show of the same name, which is co-hosted by Jacob and Tom, as well as veteran label talents Ad Brown and Zack Roth. Reaching international listeners on Proton Radio, Digitally Imported, Pure.FM, Tenzi.FM, Dance Paradise, and other radio platforms, Silk Royal Showcase is quickly approaching its 250th episode (www.silkroyalshowcase.com) and now often ranks amongst the Top 100 Podcasts in the world on iTunes. Carefully selected to represent the sound of Silk Royal Showcase radio, the songs included in the compilation range from the more pensive and melancholic shades of progressive to the more club-oriented, peak-hour material we tend to play at the end of our radio show mixes and live sets. Many of the artists are seasoned veterans of the SRS compilation series; there are also numerous first-time contributors to this year's compilation, many of whom have asserted themselves as leading talents in trance & progressive in just the past year. Silk Royal is truly privileged to receive radio support from the industry elite, including: Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Myon & Shane 54, BT, Chicane, Kyau & Albert, Super8 & Tab, Max Graham, Solarstone, Boom Jinx, Jaytech, and Ruben de Ronde. We look forward to releasing intelligent and emotional dancefloor-oriented music for years to come.

Veteran Russian duo Soarsweep returns to Silk Digital with a lustrous 2-track progressive EP. Never failing to weave patient grooves and intricate melodies through their compositions, Soarsweep does not disappoint with their latest contribution to our parent label, which kicks off with the intriguing "Mirror Ethnicity". An evocative soundscape transports the listener into a subterranean sonic wonderland, backed by sensual pads and the distant echoes of a variety of outer-worldly samples. The subsequent cut, "End Of Silence", is an elaborately melodic and romantic affair, centering on a bell-tinged lead synth and various other delicate and exceedingly emotive motifs.
