The latest release of London producer Silverlining has arrived by way of his own Silverlining Dubs imprint. Simulacra, as its titled, comprises eight singles and marks the producer’s first-ever double LP. It released in digital and vinyl formats on February 15th.
Tracks like “▙ ■ Contracultura” and “▛ □ Observa” exhibit distinct electro influence, whereas “▚ ■ Aura” (which premiered via Trommel) and “▛ ■ Schema” fit noise elements and infectious synths into the four-on-the-floor formula. After “▞ ■ Tundra” pairs soulful vocals with subtle acids and retro synths, the effort closes out with the chilled-out breakbeat sound of “▞ □ Recognitia.”
Silverlining (real name Asad Rizvi) began disc jockeying in 1993 and released his debut record, the Pearl Divers EP, in 1996. 25 years later, he is approaching the 200 release mark with some of his records fetching as much as £75 on Discogs. In addition to his own imprint, his music has found a home on such labels as Wiggle, Reverberations and Ing Recordings.
Simulacra is available for purchase in digital and vinyl format via Silverlining Dubs Bandcamp.
