Every once in a while, something comes around that proves that the future of dance music is in good hands. Perth-based newcomer Silva is doing just that. His latest track “Unforgotten” perfectly toes the line between thoughtful IDM and a straight-up banger.
The track begins with an expertly crafted intro that draws listeners in with an attention grabbing synth line before building to a drop characterized by crunchy bass waves and head-bobbing beats that don’t try to rush things or do to much. In fact, this track purposefully doesn’t do any more than it needs to; the beauty is in the details with Silva’s meticulous and skillful production.
2018 was a big year for Silva, seeing him garner support from the likes of Ekali, Quix, Stooki Sound, and Badrapper. If that wasn’t enough for ya, 2019 is set to be an even bigger adventure for the 22 year-old. He’s got upcoming collabs with such heavy-hitters as Hex Cougar, graves, Slumberjack, and UZ.
