Silk's latest release is by the exceedingly talented Russian artist Sergey Tkachev, whose standout tracks on Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep (such as "Alien & Butterfly") have led to a quick ascent in the international progressive scene. His offering here, the ebullient "Mi Ta," was initially previewed on the Silk Royal Showcase 02 compilation and now features two brand new remixes by Alexey Sonar and axisOne.

Tkachev's Original Mix is a jubliant, peak-hour progressive house track, with an 80's influenced rhythm section and lead synth. More specifically, the track begins with just a basic kick-snare-hat pattern -- straight from an 80's American disco -- and the funky lead synth chord progression. The lead develops into a new, highly dynamic melody, and this main theme continues throughout the tune, as various layers are added. In the main break, the lead riff is solo'ed as the beats drop out, and strings enhance the euphoria of the soundscape.

Alexey Sonar, a widely popular Russian DJ and producer (who also just started his own label, "Intricate"), serves up the first of two brilliant interpretations. Sonar's take is a bit more subdued and deep, as the tune begins with a chunky rhythm section and a "dubby," repeating pad effect. A cavernous sub bass is next added, soon followed by light echoes of the original melody. Finally, in the main break, we are treated to the lead theme, which is especially exciting, since the first half of the tune only offers "teasers" of this triumphant theme.

Rising talent axisOne -- the first Silk artist hailing from China -- caps off the release with a massive rendering, a track that will find an audience amongst both house and trance fans. A huge kick and snare, as well as powerful, rolling bassline, establish an aggressive tone early. A lovely, layered apreggio is then introduced, as well as an even funkier take on the lead motif. A furious crescendo then follows, ultimately leading to a high-octave version of the lead theme in the main break. The drop that follows is truly thrilling and arguably the standout "moment" in the release.
