Keanu Silva's Exclusive Mix
 
Celebrating this week’s release of “On My Way,” Keanu Silva joined us to deliver his Exclusive Mix. Keanu has been enjoying a breakthrough year since signing exclusively to Mixmash Records, highlighted by his original “Close 2 You,” VIP Remix of Mark Villa collab “Lots To Say,” and more recently his Gil Sanders collab “Loud & Clear.” As he hits his production stride, we took a closer look at his music and exciting future!
 
 
 
How did you approach your Exclusive Mix and how would your track selection compare to a club show?
I think it's close to a club set, but as each crowd has a special taste and each party its own vibe, I decide my track selection individually during each gig. This mix describes a bandwidth of styles that I really enjoy privately and play in my sets.

Can you highlight three tracks included and why they stand out to you?
EDX – “We Can't Give Up.” As always EDX delivers stand out quality and feeling, I always love the tracks. Full support!

CID – “Creepin’.” Great drop, great new Hexagon release. Nice idea to cover the TLC classic!

Andy Bianchini – “One.” Very interesting new Mixmash release! I really like it when artists choose to experiment with new sounds and atmospheres!

Can you take us through the production process of “On My Way,” going from the initial inspiration to final production?
It's a track that was in the pipeline for a release a little longer than normal, but I think that now is the right time to put it out. The track aptly describes best that I am “on my way.” It’s a bit more specific and smooth in style, but still has enough of this energy that I felt during the production process. This track comes a bit more out of the “deeper” category – I can’t really explain “how” because it just feels right.
 

Absolutely loving the club mix of “Loud & Clear”! Can you talk about how that track came together?
The production was based on the more commercial original layout, but then I had the idea to turn the drop around really heavy into that arp-flying-wobbling-synth-explosion. I honestly didn't expect so much awesome feedback. I just do what feels right on each production and in each moment, but I do think melodic elements will always win.

As you alluded to, the support on “Loud & Clear” was outstanding! What do you think made that track so accessible to other DJs?
I think it's the more melodic, but still powerful drop. I was a bit surprised how well it works live. That face though is really motivating and makes me want to push even harder in the studio!
 

During ADE, you'll take the stage as part of the Mixmash Label Night. What has you excited about that event?
Bringing all of the artists from the label together is truly a great way to get to know each other. It’s a welcome change in what has become an era of getting connected online and through “e-meetings”! I’m excited for all of the great opportunities for future collaborations and new possibilities that come from meeting and bonding with my fellow Mixmash artists.

Who is another Mixmash artist who you are particularly excited to see play?
Personally I am very excited to see Laidback Luke play. It's always very motivating and fun to see him do his magic on stage.

Any other plans for ADE and the fall you can share with us?
Eating a good croquette and not being too nervous is plan A! Plan B is just to enjoy each moment sharing good vibes with the people who support me and my productions. Some new singles are already waiting for a release and I have some huge collabs coming up together with the Mixmash family. More information about those projects will soon be revealed and 1001 is known for always being one of the first to know haha :)
 
 
You can catch Keanu Silva as part of the Mixmash Records ADE Label Night next Wednesday, October 18th at the Bar Broker alongside a star studded line-up including Laidback Luke, Inpetto, Cesqeaux, Dirtcaps,Tommie Sunshine & more!
