Proff - Starstruck (Incl. Solarity Remix) [SILKRL005] OUT NOW!

Vladimir Ershov, a.k.a. PROFF, has witnessed an unforgettable year as both a producer and DJ, with a series of chart-topping hits on Anjunadeep, as well as a massive tour throughout his native Russian Federation (alongside labelmates Above and Beyond). The Original Mix of "Starstruck" conveys this excitement, firing out of the gate with a jubilant arpeggio. The breakdown is equally euphoric: newly added synth stabs "flash" in wide-stereo glory, as if imitating the unexpected onslaught of paparazzi. Fellow Silk (and Anjunadeep) artists Solarity provide the first of two remixes on the package. In vintage form, they have completely reinvented the central groove of the tune, underscored by a signature electro-prog bassline. Rising Japanese artist Shingo Nakamura (Silk Digital, Mango Alley, Proton Music, Morphosis) also continues to garner attention for his prolific output of high-quality productions. His interpretation is slightly more chilled, as he re-imagines the original as a piano-driven piece. For its fifth release, Silk Royal is thrilled to showcase the talents of three of the leading acts in melodic progressive.
