Since bursting onto the scene back in 2013 via an EP on Ellen Allien’s BPitch Control imprint, Silvie Loto has developed into an internationally renowned techno artist who has played to dancefloors on every continent you could think of.
The Italian artist has since put her music out on a number of other greats labels, including Rhythm Cult, Cosmic Society, and most recently, Nervous Records.
Silvie joins us for our latest edition of Five Tracks, where she lists her favourite tracks to play in her sets, and turn to for studio inspiration. Picks come from names like Mr. G, Ron Trent, and Andre Galluzi, get the full list below.
Mr G. – A Lost Dub (Lwrmx)
Label: Phoenix G
What can I say, I think I’m Mr G.’s number one fan. I’m inspired by every track that he releases. I love when a track is mostly a groovy loop with only a few changes, but it never makes you stop moving. There is everything I love in here, simplicity, class, and groove.
Floyd Lavine – My African Acid
Label: Beating Heart
I’ve played this track so much over the last few years. I love when a track mixes different styles together. It can be risky sometimes, but on this one the mix between congas and acid is just perfect.
Ron Trent – Kids at Play
Label: Electric Blue
When I’m either making music or playing in-front of a dancefloor my wish is always to see people smiling and having a good time. This track is the perfect example of how I imagine the perfect vibe on a dancefloor. The groove is light, happy, sexy, and perfect for every moment. One of my favourite tracks ever and one that always get me in the perfect mood.
Guido Schneider & Andre Galluzi – Albertino
Classic tracks from the ‘90s and early ‘00s are never missed in my sets, and of course as inspiration in the studio. This track is central to one the best memories I have from the first years I started playing. When I play it nowadays it always surprises me to see that despite the sound being really different today (and not that empty and minimal in terms of elements), this tracks still works as well as it did 10 years ago.
Blak Bet Niks – One Day At A Time (Stone’s Big 10 Radio Mix)
Label: Champion Records
I love closing tracks of the set. Sometimes it’s the most fun moment. This track is one of my favourite ‘closing tracks’ in my collection. I don’t think there’s much to say, it’s all a vibe.
