FACT mix 255: Silkie

“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.”
