Lil Silva’s Mabel EP is out now04/08/2014
Lil Silva, real name TJ Carter, has always been inventive and evolving as a DJ and producer. Now, still only 24 years old, he’s stepped up as songwriter and vocalist with the ‘Mabel’ EP featuring 2 tracks with BANKS. The EP, recorded and finished between studios at his home in Bedford, London and Los Angeles, highlights this exciting, ongoing transformation. His voice is warm and rich on a bruised slow jam duet about seeing a woman with the wrong man (‘Right For You ft. BANKS’) and in the strong stick-in-your-brain-for-months melody of ‘Don’t You Love ft BANKS’. Video for title track ‘Mabel’ above..
