London producer Lil Silva may be young, but he's already made a mark on the UK music scene. He's been championed by Marcus Nasty, his Night Skanker EP on Night Slugs added to the label's already impressive talent roster, and the guy just keeps pushing forward. His production combines a high-energy take on grime and UK funky with a knowledge of American house that results in some seriously potent tunes. Now, as Lil Silva gets ready to release a new EP, Patience, next month on the freshly minted Good Years label, he's stepped up and joined the ranks of the XLR8R podcast series. Strap in while Lil Silva blasts through a number of speaker-rattling selections, including several of his own remixes and unreleased productions, along with ear-pleasing tracks from fellow UK bass aficionados DVA, Redlight, MJ Cole, and more.
