'Trouble & Bass' w/ Silkie+Elijah
Silkie runs that corner of dubstep painted “purple,” the subgenre in which (almost) over-the-top synth lines mimic and (almost) overwhelm the bassline. His 2009 classic “Purple Love” (as well as his City Limits collections in their entireties) have proved that he’s copped some lessons in vitality and immediacy from rave and hardcore. With partner-in-sound Skilliam, grime chronicler Elijah spins for RinseFM and runs Butterz, the label releasing Silkie and Swindle’s new single, “Unlimited.” With residents AC Slater, B. Rich, Star Eyes, the Captain, and Baauer.
