Biography

Language: English

For the past 12 years Dj Silkie has been working the tables and perfecting his art. Getting his start in a basement in Detroit’s Southwest side, he began working with all types of music but found a new soul in house music.

He moved to NYC for about 9 months and was booked at Webster Hall. Once back home in Detroit, he started spinning on the Downtown Detroit club circuit. From Bleu to Envy to Time Square Detroit, he was trying to make a name for himself. He won amateur contests at ‘Have A Nice Day Cafe’ and at the Necto and opened for Bad Boy Bill. His next big break came when he headlined the New Years Eve ‘06 Celebration at the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago. And recently started spinning at the White Star for Progressive Productions.

He held a residency at The Temple in downtown Detroit for a year and now has joined forces with Imperial Entertainment to bring Latin Evolution to Detroit. Holding Premium Lounge at capacity, Imperial Entertainment has fused Latin rhythm and Electronic soul. Recently, Silkie has been spotted at The White Star Nightclub, Alvin’s and Club Sin.

Silkie has a love for music that is undying and is always trying to find new ways to make the music his own. Going against the grain and not conforming to what everyone else is doing is what makes this DJ so special.
