Since it kicked back into life in impressive fashion back in 2009 with Jef K and Chris Carrier’s « Morning EP », Silver Network has been building a head of steam with releases such as the mighty « In My System » by The Gathering, « Every Night » by Valentin ft. The Movans and most recently the fantastic « We Are Time And Space » from Leeds outfit, Death On The Balcony.

Originally launched in 1999, Jef K’s Silver Network rapidly established itself as a bastion of all that was good and great in House music. From its inception until its brief hiatus in 2007, Silver Network brought us music from the likes of Iz & Diz, Pepe Bradock, Freaks, Dixon, Ciudad Feliz, Fred Everything, Mark Farina and DJ Rasoul. The quality of the music has never been a doubt, thanks to the a&r’ing of Jef.

Release number 032 sees our courageous Parisian welcome yet another of the current crop of UK rising stars, Subb-an, with a track that was first conceived during a night in the French capital. Having enjoyed a successful gig and afterparty together, Jef and Ash found themselves constantly repeating a phrase that was going to give birth to the title track, « Paris is back bébé. » Having returned home, Ash made a call to Jef requesting that he record the phrase for a new composition. « Paris Bébé » was born.

Harnessing the extreme funk of the Subb-an original and reworking their own take is Jef, alongside is regular partner in crime Gwen Maze and Antwerp’s DJ Pirrés. Having kicked off the production process whilst at this years Sonar festival, the trio have finally completed the finishing touches and added possibly the years finest intro.
