Vintage & Morelli - Daydream (Incl. Shingo Nakamura Remix)
Release : 16/02/01
Label: Silk Music

1 Vintage & Morelli - Daydream (Original Mix)
2 Vintage & Morelli - Daydream (Shingo Nakamura Remix)

Release Info:
With Vintage & Morelli's debut artist album just around the corner, it's our great privilege to present the standout first single, "Daydream". Premiered recently on Above & Beyond's "Group Therapy" radio show, this breathtaking track not only best represents the Serbian talent's dynamic and versatile sound, but also is truly one of his finest compositions to date.

A patient, heavily filtered groove and piano-based lead set a deep and mysterious tone in the early going. The sensual soundscape is enhanced by haunting vocal accents, as well as resonant bass layers (an artist signature). As the opening build begins to wind back down, gorgeous piano lines begin to emerge, setting the stage for an awe-inspiring breakdown. Specifically, in the break, the emotive piano theme is joined by a plaintive "Who are you" vocal refrain. Energetic, trance-influenced synths follow, creating an aura of almost overwhelming suspense. Finally, the deep rhythm drops back into the mix, which crescendoes to absolutely glorious effect.

The incomparable Shingo Nakamura begins his eighth year as a contributor to our imprint with the one and only remix of "Daydream". Fans of the Japanese virtuoso are already well aware that he is capable of writing superlative music in a wide variety of genres; given the deeper vibes in the original mix, he has chosen to inject a shot of adrenaline into his interpretation. Side-chained pads and electrifying chords establish the peak-hour sound early. In the breakdown, the gorgeous piano motif from the original mix is solo'd and then later joined, once again, by layered, goosebumps-inducing pads and chords. The drop to follow is absolutely thrilling -- easily one of the most emotive, intelligent, and anthemic arrangements of Shingo's storied career.

Stendahl & Shingo Nakamura - Tribute, Сhapter II (incl. Terry Da Libra, Blugazer remixes) [Silk Music]

Listen or Download:

Stendahl & Shingo Nakamura - Tribute, Сhapter II (incl. Terry Da Libra, Blugazer remixes)
Release : 15/12/14
Label: Silk Music

1 Stendahl & Shingo Nakamura - Tribute, Сhapter II (Original Mix)
2 Stendahl & Shingo Nakamura - Tribute, Сhapter II (Terry Da Libra Remix)
3 Stendahl & Shingo Nakamura - Tribute, Сhapter II (Blugazer Remix)

Release Info:
Every year on his "Only Silk" compilation, Shingo Nakamura contributes at least one original progressive track, which inevitably proves to be one of the release highlights. In 2015, it took the form of "Tribute, Chapter II", a follow-up collaboration with the exceedingly gifted Russian musician Stendahl. The Original Mix features a mellifluous soundscape, including a lush chord progression, gorgeous string effects, and, later, a timeless piano score. Our favorite moment is the breakdown, where the two artistic styles unite; specifically, Shingo's piano is joined by Stendahl's innovative and chilled breaks.

Terry Da Libra, who Shingo Nakamura himself recently described as one of his favorite musicians, graces us with the first of two inspired remixes. Global DJs and fans alike have marveled at Terry's marked growth in 2015, with hits like "Onirikon" helping to define his breakthrough year. His take once again showcases numerous midrange layers, soaring above a buoyant, flawlessly mixed rhythm section. Ethereal pads, subtle vocal effects, and an exhilarating new lead chord progression highlight Terry's exceptional interpretation.

Blugazer, an accomplished veteran who also experienced a watershed year, closes out the release with an uptempo, trance-influenced rendering. An awe-inspiring soundscape, featuring myriad melodic and atmospheric textures, is joined by a stormy bassline in the early going. Echoes of the song's original themes can be heard in the breathtaking breakdown, while more subtle, yet undeniably gorgeous melodic variations are contributed by the NYC-based phenom.

LOOPer feat. Andy Wooding - All We Are (Shingo Nakamura Remix) [Silk Music]


LOOPer feat. Andy Wooding - All We Are (The Remixes)
Release : 15/11/16
Label: Silk Music

1 LOOPer feat. Andy Wooding - All We Are (Shingo Nakamura Remix)
2 LOOPer feat. Andy Wooding - All We Are (Sure-I-Can Remix)

Release Info:
London-based musicians LOOPer teamed up with vocalist Andy Wooding on last year's "All We Are" release. We're excited to revive this romantic, "vintage" progressive house cut in the form of two brand new remixes by veteran leader Shingo Nakamura and rising talent Sure-I-Can.

Shingo Nakamura's take captures the whimsical, sun-kissed spirit of the original, thanks to a lush chord sequence and an uplifting groove. The lyrical motif, "we're all living together", continues to shine as the song's central hook, yet Shingo has enhanced its beauty with ethereal pads and, of course, signature piano themes. Sure-I-Can offers a stripped down interpretation, replete with jazzy hooks and delicate side melodies. His chilled and impressionistic remix is the perfect soundtrack to an autumn drive.
