Liverpool born James Silk, is the newest addition to the Artefact records artist roster. Relatively new producer on the House scene, James is far from inexperienced when it comes to music. Already released tracks for Open Bar Music, She/It Records, Cimelde Records and few other labels, debuts on Artefact with the three tracker called Lost Circus EP that is set straight for to the dance floor. Starting with Friend Of Mine where James's clever usage of the vocal snippet from Incognito's Still Friend of Mine softly filtering thru the break down, and the mix with a deep bass line and modern tech sounds, shows his ability to connect the old with the modern in a great balance. Hazy Dayz carries a lighter bounce with the funky influenced bass line, along with a creamy funky soulful vocal riding on a chunky rolling grooves, and a sweet disco riff filtering thru the grooves, a minimalistic approach with a great vibe. Rounding off this flawless package, James takes us on a Trail To Buda, with the deep and crisp bass line and old school male vocal sublimed with an old school melody and an eastern male vocal that gives the atmospheric feel to the whole groove and right in the middle a rolling piano takes the whole track to a different level, whilst the vibe stays intact and delivers a joyfully emotional ride. Fusing old school sounds with current dancefloor sensibilities James Silk is a new name that we are proud to have onboard at Artefact Records and a name that we are sure you will be hearing a lot more in the near future.
Early support by Hermanez, Al Bradley, DJ Nutritious, Bogdan Taran, Colin Sales, Lee Jarvies, Alfred Azzetto, Hector Moralez, James Harrigan, Nachtvogels.....

Nikola Jovicevic aka Freaky Funk is an essential part of Montenegro electronic scene, with his name attached to almost every big event in country. His talent and love for music helped make him a proud member of two very important clubbing organizations in region: AfterBeach Parties Montenegro and RetroActive DJ team with his friend DJ Proximus.
Freaky Funk is known for DJ'ing quality tech- and funky house all over the Montenegro seaside, as well as winning the Exit Festival DJ Competition which granted him a spot on the Exit Dance Arena Stage, playing one of the biggest festivals in Europe alongside some of its biggest DJs.
His first EP for Macedonia's Artefact label was the Just Visiting EP which was well received in international house music circles. Now Freaky Funk follows that release with a new collection of tracks within the No One EP. These four original tracks showcase Freak Funk's trademark of deep, funky sounds alongside bouncy basslines and superbly blended vocal bits.
High production skills and a strong musical flare are on evidence here, offering top cuts aimed directly for the dancefloor but still suitable for casual, home listening. Touches of disco and classic underground flavors seal the deal, making for an EP that should fit like a glove in most house music DJ's playlists.

With the support of great number of djs and producers around the globe, this ep is set to be Freaky Funk's the most successful release to date.
