Silk Music is thrilled to present Silk Royal Showcase 05, the fifth 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 Johan Vilborg, Jayeson Andel, Vintage & Morelli, & Terry Da Libra. Reaching international listeners on Proton Radio, Digitally Imported, Pure.FM, Tenzi.FM, Dance Paradise, and other radio platforms, Silk Royal Showcase recently reached its 300th episode ( and now often ranks amongst the Top 100 Music Podcasts in the USA 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 Music is truly privileged to receive radio support from the industry elite, including: Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, Myon & Shane 54, BT, Chicane, Kyau & Albert, Super8 & Tab, Max Graham, Solarstone, Boom Jinx, Jaytech, Ruben de Ronde, and Aruna. We look forward to releasing intelligent and emotional dancefloor-oriented music for years to come.

Derek Howell - One Way (Shingo Nakamura Remix) [Proton Music]



Derek Howell - One Way (Shingo Nakamura, Silinder Remixes)
Release : 15/08/04
Label: Proton Music

1 Derek Howell - One Way (Shingo Nakamura Remix)
2 Derek Howell - One Way (Silinder Remix)

Release Info:
Fresh from a quartet of remixes on Particles in Spring 2015, Derek Howell and his 2014 "Interstellar Homecoming" EP has been well represented through work from the likes of East Café and Michael A. Now receiving a receiving a well-deserved remix EP on Proton Music, Irish and Japanese legends provide reworks of rare quality.

Irish producer Gavin Mulhall has been making waves in the underground dance scene for over a decade through his Silinder production nom de plume. A rare combination of skill, craft and musical soothsaying has seen his work constantly at the vanguard of the modern scene. Heavily supported by James Zabiela in his early career, Silinder has gone on to see the DJ glitterati continually support productions. As such, Silinder can justifiably call Charlie May, Meat Katie and Hernan Cattaneo fans of his music with a runners-up spot on the Guy J "Azimuth" remix competition among his accolades.

Over a double century of credits have found themselves united with some of the finest modern labels since 2006's debut for Baroque as Stripped, Perspectives Digital and Sudbeat have all found a home for the Silinder sound. A quarter-century of those credits has featured on Proton Music including 2012's "Corrupt", 2013's "Solas" and 2014's "Basement" EPs nestling alongside remixes of Biologik, Lank and Oliver Lieb. Now returning with an elegantly crafted remix of Derek Howell, Silinder's rework takes "One Way" in a carefully constructed and intricately woven percussive path that teases in elements from Howell's original as they gradually evolve into fully-blown house infused triumph. Combined with vocal cuts from the original and Silinder's own production talent, the result is a summer delight.

Ibaraki born, Sapporo based producer and DJ, Shingo Nakamura, has been a major force in the Progressive House and Trance arenas since his first work for Silk Digital went on to see him become a constant and regular contributor to their catalogues, including 2011's full-length "Sapporo" album. Indeed, a recent rework of his 2009 hit "Alice in Wonderland" for Silk Digital has been a part of the 100th single celebration for the label and his unstinting work for the "Only Silk" compilation series saw a third instalment in Jun 2015. Also a regular on the Japanese, Otographic Music imprint, 2014's "Days" provided another album of unimpeachable quality as Silk Royal, Intricate and Anjunadeep have also all played host to Nakamura's talents in a career always on the rise.

A regular on both the Particles and Proton Music labels since 2009's remix of Mango for the latter, Shingo Nakamura has continued to evolve through his remixes including Andre Sobota and Kobana. Now returning to either label for the first time in two years, Nakamura's remix of "One Way" is an intricately sculpted work of shimmering beauty. Full of emotion, a warm, pulsating bass line provides the perfect anchor for a stream of original melodic elements to flow effortlessly across a platform of sultry house groove. Nakamura's background in classical piano rises to the fore in the breakdown before vocal cuts from Howell's original are used to stunning effect in the second half.

Two new remixes of Derek Howell from Silinder and Shingo Nakamura ensured the only way is up for Derek Howell and "One Way".

Shingo Nakamura - Alice In Wonderland (2015 Rework) [Silk Didigal]



Silk Digital Classics - Reworked Pt. II (100th Single Celebration)
Release : 15/06/30
Label: Silk Digital

1 Mango & Jozhy K feat. Angel - Will You Stay (Original Mix)
2 Shingo Nakamura - Alice In Wonderland (2015 Rework)
3 Kobana - Play (2015 Rework)
4 Monojoke - And Always Sunshine On Your Face (2015 Rework)

Release Info:
In January 2008, Silk Digital released its very first single, M.A.Z.7's "Summer Day", featuring a collaborative remix by label inspirations Mango and Arthur Deep. Nearly 8 years later, we're overjoyed to present the first of a two-part offering, in celebration of Silk Digital's 100th single release. To honor the occasion, we've invited several label veterans, with whom we have had the honor of working for the better part of a decade, to rework several of their classics.

Mango, the celebrated Russian musician who laid the groundwork for the definitive melodic progressive house sound of our imprint, contributes the unforgettable "Will You Stay", featuring Ukrainian duo Jozhy K and Angel. Technically not a rework, since the original version was never released, this inspiring cut nonetheless features Mango's signature sound: ethereal chords, soaring above a gentle progressive house groove. Meanwhile, Angel's plaintive vocal hooks strike a poignant chord in the listener, including the titular refrain, "Will you stay, beside me, in the darkness?"

Next up, the one and only Shingo Nakamura, fresh off his "Only Silk 03" compilation, offers a fresh take on his classic, "Alice In Wonderland"; the original version just happened to be his first ever contribution to Silk Music, back in May 2009. The 'Rework' begins with a peak-hour groove and a lush atmosphere; at the quarter turn, a layered bassline cuts through the mix with ferocious intensity; meanwhile, dancing piano lines herald the glorious main theme in the breakdown. The enormous drop, following the break, showcases Shingo's refined DJ sensibility.

Another legendary talent, Kobana, is also fresh off a release on our label collective: his deep take on Dan Sieg's "Gloom", featured recently on our Arrival division. The Polish veteran has played an integral part in defining the sound of Silk's "deeper" side over the years, and from that spirit, his modern 'Rework' of "Play" draws strong inspiration. In the early going, a chilled groove is punctuated by a variety of ominous jazzy effects, including subtle echoes of the original theme. The noir-influenced soundscape continues to crescendo toward the main break, where the incisive main piano theme is finally revealed.

Rounding out the release, another Polish talent, Monojoke, presents a fresh interpretation of his 2008 classic, "And Always Sunshine On Your Face". Having the distinction of being the first Silk artist to receive support on "Trance Around The World", Monojoke's consistent contributions to Silk over the years have included a variety of outside-the-box electronic masterpieces. His 'Rework', as to be expected, features an innovative groove, enhanced by numerous, outer-worldly atmospheric effects. As the track progresses, the bass gets chunkier, and the main theme takes on a cosmic flavor, offering the perfect soundtrack to a celestial voyage.
