Lil Silva returns with his second EP on LDN label Good Years (Banks, Utrecht, Jim-E Stack).
His first was in May 2011 'The Patience' EP, which featured 4 cuts of the seminal Lil Silva sound.
2013's 'The Distance' sees Silva features more cuts of his signature production work but has a couple of surprises in there.
On 'Salient Sarah', a vocal performance from vocal man of the moment Sampha.
Even more ear-poppingly, 'No Doubt' features vocals from Silva himself, on a duet with newcomer Rosie Lowe.
As unexpected as when Silva created his own sonic universe the first time round with tracks like 'Seasons'this warm futuristic soul song sounds like nothing else out there.
With song collaborations with Twigs and Jamie Woon scheduled to drop in 2013, as well his lovingly recieved 'Work' with Banks, the evolution of this UK iconoclast continues.
