Full disclosure: Benjamin Shearn is a former contributor to The Playlist, so yes, this exclusive trailer belongs to someone who used to write for us. That being said, it seems we' re lucky enough to have some great talent pass through our doors (see Christopher Bell's trailer for "The Winds That Scatter"), and "Silk" is certainly something that grabbed our attention.

Full disclosure: Benjamin Shearn is a former contributor to The Playlist, so yes, this exclusive trailer belongs to someone who used to write for us. That being said, it seems we' re lucky enough to have some great talent pass through our doors (see Christopher Bell's trailer for "The Winds That Scatter"), and "Silk" is certainly something that grabbed our attention.

Shaern's film centers on 100% Silk, the an independent electronic dance music label, and chronicles the June 2012 that saw four core acts from the shingle—LA Vampires, Ital, Magic Touch, and Maria Minerva – head out on tour together through the U.K., Europe, and beyond. Capturing the performances, cultural environments and more, the documentary leans toward a more expressionistic portrait of the scene, with pacing and editing mirroring that of house albums that keep the clubs going all night long.

That is certainly evident in this nearly three-minute trailer, one that moves with considered, pulsing energy with a distinct visual eye, creating a pretty powerful sync between sound and image. Additionally containing seven staged dance sequences conceived, choreographed, and performed by Mecca Vazie Andrews, along with a cameo by Zola Jesus, this should be one dance music fans should track down.

"Silk" will make its World Premiere at CPH:DOX in the Sound & Vision Category in November. Be sure to hit the official website for more details. Watch the trailer and check out the poster below.
