One of Silk Digital's leading lights, Shingo Nakamura, is responsible for our latest offering, "There For Me," which was initially previewed on Shingo's own "Only Silk 01" compilation. Since the debut of this album in late 2012, Shingo has become a co-host of the Frisky radio show of the same name and has continued to garner radio support from the industry elite.
The Original Mix of "There For Me" transports the listener to Shingo's homeland of Japan, with sweeping chords and stunning cinematic instrumentation from start to finish. This is truly one of Shingo's most inspiring works to date, as it not only possesses a warm groove, but an intricate and richly melodic lead.
Longtime contributor Monojoke, who has been supported over the years by the likes of Above and Beyond, Solarstone, Matt Darey, and many more, offers an ornate rendering. The talented Polish veteran once again masterfully enhances the rhythm, with a variety of "indigenous" percussive elements. Meanwhile, in the background, we are treated to the distant echoes of the main chord progression, as well as provocative pads.
Finally, a breakthrough artist KIWAMU offers the first of two interpretations in the single; a fellow Japanese artist, KIWAMU has gained momentum this past year, with a variety of high-profile contributions to Otographic Music, the nation's leading progressive and trance imprint. His version is much more atmospheric and deep, but equally evocative. In the main break, the listener feels himself traveling across the fog-swept landscapes of the Land of the Rising Sun.
