Lil Silva - 'The Distance'

Album Info

  • Release Date: August 5, 2013
  • Label: Good Years
7 / 10 Lil Silva’s second EP comes two years after his first, 2011’s ‘The Patience’. Prolific he ain’t, but if it’s perfectly structured, effortlessly energetic dance music you’re after, this collection of big, pulsating basslines and bright, soulful house rhythms is an essential summer soundtrack. Silva makes his vocal debut alongside Rosie Lowe on ‘No Doubt’, showing off a strong voice to accompany his production talents, while ‘Mask’ is a return to his aggressive grime roots. ‘Salient Sarah’, a collaboration with SBTRKT vocalist Sampha, is a high point in this richly textured and impressive effort.
