London’s Silkie (real name Soloman Rose)—a paradigm of sharp, subtle and measured dupstep, of the kind that never gives up on bass elasticity or frightens us when it enters bordering territories (soft-jazz, polished funk, atmospheric, artcore, drum’n’bass) in search of new elements to enrich its formula—has announced a follow-up to his first album put out by Deep Medi Musik, the brilliant “City Limits Volume 1” (Deep Medi, 2009). There’s no definite date for the release of “ City Limits Volume 2”, although it’s said to be scheduled for early 2011. But before the album, Silkie will put out a series of four maxis each featuring two unreleased tracks, snapshots of the evolution of his sound, and of the different growth phases that have yielded the kind of maturity we’ll find on this second full-length album. Sticking to his liking for numbered series, the title of first 12” is “City Limits Volume 1.2”, to be released on 4th October. The rest of the series will be delivered on a monthly basis.
