We have been privileged to work with Russian phenom PROFF for nearly a decade now; in that span, he has contributed some of our most beloved trance, breaks, progressive & deep house cuts, from his label debut "Starstruck" to a recent remix of The Midnight hit "Days Of Thunder."
PROFF's latest masterpiece, "Innervate," which was originally previewed on last year's "Silk Music Showcase 06," finds the legendary artist at the apogee of his career. Both the musicality and technical quality of his work are at peak form, and thus, "Innervate" proves to be a veritable showcase of PROFF's many talents. Specifically, the song kicks off with an especially dynamic and exhilarating bassline groove, one that proves strong enough to carry the arrangement through the entire first half (i.e., buildup) of the song. As the song approaches the main breakdown, a thrilling vocal hook is introduced, followed by a gorgeous array of melodic layers, from anthemic strings and gorgeous synth lines to, ultimately, a rapturous lead chord progression. The electrifying drop induces a sort of melodic euphoria in the listener.
I’ve been following Gregory’s work for some time and the new album is just a pure melancholic pleasure. One of the best Silk Music acts for sure. If you’re a seeker of emotive clever dance music get this one! Love. Cherubian
