about

Silk Digital is proud to present "Move On," the second single from the forthcoming "Sapporo" album by Shingo Nakamura. The young Japanese sensation has quickly become one of the most revered producers in progressive house, thanks to timeless classics like "Sapporo" and "I'm With You." His latest effort is a collaboration with Kazusa, another great Japanese talent, who, like Shingo, is blessed with a gift for floating rhythms and uplifting melodies.

The Original Mix represents everything that we've come to love from Shingo: emotional piano lines and dancing synth chords, soaring above a chilled prog house rhythm. Yet, the tone of the melodies in this one are slightly melancholic, as if to imply that the collaborators have literally 'moved on" from a great loss -- a former relationship or perhaps the tragic events of this past year in their native land. The main break highlights the incisive lead melody, as Shingo's piano once again strikes a deep chord in our hearts.

In addition to the Original Mix, we have three lovely remixes, all of which were selected as the winning entries in our recent "Move On" remix contest (the prizes of which included free gear from Sonalksis and Soundcloud). The first is by Russian newcomer Matao, who recently turned heads with his standout remix of Louder Dale's "Halo" on our own Arrival Recordings. Matao brings a more aggressive energy to his interpretation, with PROFF-inspired percussion and gorgeous synth "swells" throughout the tune.

Fellow Russian Aleksey Yakovlev offers a an equally dreamy and melodic interpretation. The rhythmic is slightly more in the "classic" progressive house vein; yet, the energy in this one slowly builds as the lead synth crescendoes in the first half of the tune. In the break, main riff from the original is left to stand on its own, with some interesting filtering and tremolo work added for a unique effect.

Finally, Silk veterans Soarsweep present the stripped-down 'intelligent' rendering, a visionary take which could fairly be described as a rework. This remix features a variety of outer-worldly samples, a hypnotic bass swell, and a delicate lead arpeggio, which combine to create a stunning atmosphere. In the break, a light, tribal beat gently supports the gorgeous main theme, which soothingly (and welcomingly) appears in an otherwise melodically distinct track.
