MP3: Silex - "High Life"


MP3: Silex - "High Life"

Courtesy Melanie J. Cornish.

High Life, the second single from Rotterdam MC, Silex, is a testament to the struggles he has endured up to this point in his career. Like any other artist, sacrifices have to be made at times, but at what cost? Silex addresses the daily struggles he has faced in his personal life as he sought the ‘high life’.

“Music provides me with a natural high and having been living the ‘high life’ for so long, I felt my grasp on reality falter for a split second,” Silex explains. “I had to tighten the reigns a bit and when I heard the sample in the track, I had to address a situation which was a major turning point for me. Folks say that out of something bad comes something good and in this instance the good is my second official single, so it can’t all be bad.”

High Life was produced by BeatBustaEnt and mixed and mastered by German studio whiz Peer Hahnefeld at http://www.online-mixing.de/ .
