Following a string of well-regarded EPs - mostly on Emotive - Silk 86 joins the growing Shall Not Fade family. The Other Side is a wholeheartedly positive and melodious affair, with all four cuts sounding like they could ignite any house-centric party if dropped at the right time. While the title track, a bouncy roller full of jammed-out electronic piano solos, lazy Rhodes chords and elastic synth bass, is undeniably ace, our pick is probably the low-slung, bass-heavy deep house/disco-house fusion of "Rhapsody" (though opener "The Shine", a breezy piano-heavy affair full of authentic disco percussion, is also fantastic). If that wasn't enough to set the pulse racing, Mall Grab's remix of "The Other Side" is a sweaty, bass-heavy, late night delight.
