Its batter up for number 40 on Silk Digital as they unleash another new progressive blend of beats this time from David Akermanis who swings in with a double EP...

There is one progressive label that has been worthy of all the praise that gets sent its way of late and that is Silk Royal Records. The Silk Digital label is just about to tick over to its 40th release and they have a real treat in store to celebrate the landmark with a new production from David Akamanis. Music is something he has been heavily involved with since he was just 15 and his progressive style fits in perfectly with the musical philosophy of Silk. David himself is based in Toronto and is a relatively new name on the progressive scene. He is best known for his ever popular radio show ‘Progressive Aggressive’ and has recently become co-host of one of Toronto’s best known ‘Vital Radio’ along with DJ Endgame. This is not his first release on Silk but I may well suggest this is his best so far and a promising sign of a bright future to come. Triple the pleasure here with Aura being remixed by G-Tek and a ‘B’ side ‘Spark’ bundled in just for fun.

There is something very inviting about the music which comes from Silk of late and here is another example. David Akermanis has two tracks on offer here, the first of which goes by the name of ‘Aura’ and is one of the finest pieces of progressive music I’ve heard for a while. The main thrust of the record comes in the form of a throbbing low end bass pattern and crisp scruffy percussion that give this progressive gem a touch of vibrant bright energy about it. The bright key drops that create a deep atmosphere are highlighted even more by a sweetly driven leading melody layer over the top. It’s the perfectly time chord changes in that melody and bass line which create the appeal on this one with the breaks filtered down into a gorgeous breakdown laced with a classic piano key. It’s on the breakdown that you can really appreciate the melody, the kind of soft delicate touch that adds an element of class to this outstanding track.

While I don’t think you will play anything else than the original you might have a look at G-Teck’s remix which drops a slightly more bouncy progressive tone on proceedings and a female vocal touch. He adds a little bit more warmth into the mix and leads with the main beat rather than the original’s addictive bass line. Think of this mix as a long bath to the refreshing burst of the original’s shower with its vocal tones and warm sounds. I don’t remember any vocal in the original but it’s a nice touch in here and adds to the atmosphere. Spark is an interesting little addition here. Maybe not as strong as Aura but you can’t really compare it as it’s a completed different vibe to it. The kind of progressive stop start kind of track with a very bright and energetic main melody riff that’s prominent throughout the track. While it didn’t really grab me between the legs the subtle drops of piano kept the interest but never really felt like it was going anywhere. Not to take anything away from the production, as it’s very well laid out.

What an excellent way to celebrate Silk Digital's 40th release with a quite stunning progressive masterpiece in Aura that should relax and engross even the most restless of minds. David Akamanis hits the sweet spot on Silk yet again, we love it.
