Keanu Silva (DE)

Starting out as a DJ in local clubs, Keanu Silva (Julien) was Germany's best-kept secret until his first release ‘Pump Up The Jam’ put him straight into the limelight. Coming down from the high of his well-received debut (reaching well over 1M Spotify plays and as much as 680K Soundcloud plays), the follow-up; ‘Children’, also made a huge impact. Inspired by the original of Robert Miles, the track boosted an imposingly deep and full sound making it reach over 1.2M combined Spotify and Soundcloud plays. With both tracks on the radar by colleagues like; Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Rehab, Lucas & Steve and many others, ‘Pump Up The Jam’ and ‘Children’ were soon played live to tens of thousands festival goers on Parookaville, Tomorrowland (Belgium & Brasil), EDC and Sensation. A prelude to the bright future that lay ahead for Keanu Silva. After perfecting his signature sound, Silva returned to the musical playground early 2017 by signing exclusively at Mixmash Records and busting out the summer infused Mark Villa collab; ‘Lot’s To Say’. Having an impeccable feel and musical vision on how to take a track to the next level he created a future house VIP mix from the original that received massive support by Laidback Luke, Tiësto, Hardwell, Don Diablo, Lucas & Steve, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and much more. While the VIP Mix popped up in all major podcasts and live sets alike, the talented producer started a new solo project; ‘Close To You’ (released on Mixmash Records). But the producing machine keeps up the pace, 'Loud & Clear' together with Gil Sanders was released in August and new solo's, remixes and collabs are on the way! With an authentic future house meets progressive sound, Silva is aiming to contend at the highest level in the dance industry. Receiving huge support from influential colleagues, dropping slick productions after another with a mellifluous signature sound, Keanu Silva is rising from the masses like a lightning bolt!
