Silk is thrilled to present "Rewoven 01" the first in a new compilation series, in which an accomplished label artist is given the task of "weaving" together various, previously-released label tracks, as well as adding a few originals to the mix. For the first installment, Silk tapped Italian-born (and now USA-based) artist Stefan Anion, who is already well-known in underground progressive house, breaks, and even ambient circles for his innovative, ground-breaking compositions. Given his reputation, it should not have surprised us that Stefan took the concept of "Rewoven" a step further than we originally imagined: he not only has mixed various Silk cuts together, but he has also dissected, rearranged, and reworked each one of them (including the addition of numerous original elements), with the end result of truly conceiving a brand new version of each track within the mix. In this sense, then, it would not be an unfair comparison to liken Stefan's "Rewoven 01" to Jooris Voorn's legendary "Balance 014," another prominent example of a truly "compositional" artist mix.
