Fresh Daily: Silek – “Free Riders (ft. Eno Logik & Karma22) (Italy)

Published On October 19, 2012 | By Greg | Fresh Daily: Video of the Day, Italy

Silek has been in the Italian hip hop scene since 1996 with his group Dozhens. Hailing from Padua (just outside of Venice), Silek and Dhozens released for albums between 1996 and 2006. They were one of the first groups to incorporate electronic sounds into their music and, later, a live band.

As a solo artist, Silek continues to push the boundaries – especially with electronic sounds. “Free Riders” sees Silek riding the beat of longtime producers and collaborators Eno Logik and Karma22. The song is an ode to people hustling day to day to stay alive and fed. Silek says, “This is for the Free Riders, ones who cannot find peace.”
