London-centric beat-makers Finn Casey and Thomas L are the faces behind the new Silk 86 project that is responsible for tracks such as "Buying Time" and "Could This Be", which were featured on its last EP giveaway, "On The House Vol.1." Having cut its teeth over the last decade DJing and promoting in the underground scene of East London, Silk 86 resolved to disregard genre stereotyping in favor of incorporating its eclectic musical background as its calling card. A cultured upbringing drenched in hip-hop has brought together a unified ethic to the sound, with a penchant for smooth basslines, hypnotic synths, and crisp percussive cuts that highlight a production prestige and confidence that outweighs its years. Picking up where it left off, On The House Vol. 2 features seven new tracks from the duo available for download right now. On The House Vol. 2 kicks off with 'Dem Curves,' which premiered on Radio One via George Fitzgerald's residency show. The full package features a host of original works that you can grab by heading over to their website.
Silk 86 will also continue its residency at XOYO over the year, with the next date falling on October 3rd with Carl Craig & Busy P.
