SiLVA – Follow Me | Break Time (Understated)

SiLVA-Follow-Me-Understated-Recordings

Our girl SiLVA just dropped her first EP out on Understated Recordings. This 2 track release features some deep dark house vibes entices the mind. With deep grooves and an enticing melody, she hits us hard with big kick with a funky bassline to get you moving. ‘Break Time’ is the heavier track of the two, ‘Follow Me’ being the deeper of the 2 tracks. SiLVA absolutely crushes it with this EP and we look forward to seeing what comes next for the host of Future Factory on Dash Radio’s Discover & also the host of Dim Mak’s Evolution Radio on IheartRadio.

[“A smooth and sexy bassline is always a nice groove to mix into. (For ‘Follow Me’), I wanted a sound that was sleek, with a bouncy swing”. –SiLVA.

“We’re proud to welcome dance music’s triple threat – producer, DJ and radio host (of Dim Mak Studios on iHeartRadio’s Evolution Radio and also Future Factory on Dash Radio) – SiLVA, to the Understated Recordings family this Friday. After getting to know her over the past couple months. it’s clear to us that she’s someone that’s done her time in the scene (and has a vast knowledge of it), but is also someone that’s open to fresh, new sounds and the notion of a constantly evolving electronic music culture – and those are exactly the types of artists we look for at Understated”. – Understated Recordings ]

Hayden James ‘Something About You’ (now signed to Virgin EMI from Future Classic)

HaydenJames_NickBowers_Shot1_300dpiCasino-style clubs and giant raves might seem the yardsticks de jour for electronic music artists in the US, but hearing your music on the radio while driving through America is a moment still enjoyed by a select few. It’s a club now joined by Australian artist Hayden James, though, when en route to Coachella his song ‘Something About You’ emerged from the car stereo.

Signed to Virgin EMI from Australia’s leading independent imprint, Future ClassicHayden James’ ‘Something About You’ has so far notched up over 10 million online streams (with support from leading YouTube channel, The Sound You Need), hit high rotation on specialist and commercial radio across Australia, and made the leap to daytime US radio. A highlight of both Coachella weekends, and one of the anthems for the forthcoming Ibiza season, expect this to be one of the tunes of summer 2015.

Tipped as one of the Southern Hemisphere’s hottest talents, Hayden James’ growing list of achievements is impressive: sold-out headline live shows in Australia, a 15 date headline North America tour (plus his Coachella debut), Hype Machine No.1s, and support slots with ODESZA. But, grand stats aside, its on record and live onstage where you’ll find the real magic in his (increasingly) French-touch inspired sound. 

Currently putting the finishing touches to his debut album, James is influenced by artists including Jamie xx, Caribou, Daft Punk, SBTRKT, James Blake, and Toro Y Moi. He grew up in Sydney and cut his teeth on the local club scene, where he quickly became known as one of the city’s rising stars.

The Balearic pop of his debut track, ‘Permission To Love’, helped him scale the busy heights of the booming Australian electronic scene and to the pinnacle of the Hype M chart. An EP and a slew of remixes (Dillon Francis, ODESZA, RÜFÜS) later, and James had further established himself as a mainstay on both the Australian and international touring circuits.
