Silkie's latest double vinyl album 'Fractal's' on long-time friend and collaborator Distal's newly minted Science Fiction imprint 'Anarchostar' might just be his most forward thinking work to date. Silkie has put together a psychedelically sexy and temperamental record that toys with new ideas, archetypes and bpm's but still grounds itself in what makes dance music and his music so palpable... repetition.
"The third longplayer from Silkie is as hyperreal and tehnicolur in its gangsta boogie characteristics as ever. Boy, this guy can really play! If ever there was an antidote to the montone and bleak qualities of dubstep and associated genres, this tapestry of melody, pitch and tone is it, essentially a riot of creativity. Too many great tracks to mention, but check the euphoric ‘Limits’, the on trend and suitably named ‘Entrapment’, the minor qualities of ‘Majik’ and the cheeky “Love Affair”."
Mark Gurney, Dj Mag
"Tweeted my love for the closer 'Upstate' Matt Oliver ?@BrimUpNorth 'Upstate' from @silkierose's forthcoming 'Fractals' album - jungle fantasy/ roughneck lushness that'll stroke your hair then cold clock you"

"Ooooooohhh GOSH. So Sick. Super excioted about this. Arcada is amazing. BIG UP!!"
T Williams, PMR Records
"Really like this. It's like a weird mixture of cosmic funk and library music mixed with glitchy modern production. A lot going on and much to digest. Standouts for me are Arcada and Moda."
Bill Brewster, Dj History
"Holy wow, best album I've heard all year, hands down. Hard to pin the best track but I'm going with Swank right now. Cosmic Space Porno funk right there."
Michael Earley, UP FM New Zealand
