He reached number one in the UK with ‘Touch Me’ back in 2001, but Rui Da Silva is back with brand new track, ‘New Lover’, that doesn’t aim for such heights. With the passion for what he does not seeming to have decreased in the slightest, and his experience being matched by very few others in the business, we caught up with the DJ, producer and label boss to find out what his upcoming album has in store holds and whether he’s got over his fear of sitting still…

Introduction
Producer, DJ, record label boss, musical innovator.

Rui Da Silva is an electronic music producer. He runs Kismet Records, his own, successful, independent music label. He DJ’s all over the world.

Rui has been involved in music since he was a kid and in the music business since he set up the Kaos Records label in Portugal in the early 90s with the label he kick started the dance scene in Portugal 

In 1993 Rui creates the legendary Underground Sound of Lisbon the most influential electronic dance band out of Portugal till this day. The Seminal "So get Up" originally released under his label Kaos Records went on to be licensed to Tribal Records in the US, the international release of So Get Up came packaged with mixes from Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia. This record became a classic in the Sound Factory in New York.

In 1999 he moved away from his label Kaos Records and relocated to London in a search for new challenges. He set up Kismet Records.

In 2001 his music leapt from club to radio when his song Touch Me became an international number one single. 

Today he continues to produce club tracks, commercial tracks and experimental electronic music, as he puts it, “trying to change the sound and evolve as staying still gets me bored”.

Rui’s formative years, growing up in Portugal, were spent listening to music and one-deck DJing at parties “There was no DJ mixers in those days”. Early influences included Tones On Tail, Talking Heads, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. 

Then, the revelatory experience, he started listening to early house from the US and the UK. “I decided to buy a Roland 909 (drum machine) and start creating music. I liked the way it was all about the music.” 

From there it was only a small step to becoming a producer, party animal, and label boss. Rui Da Silva, at once professor and student, mentor and pupil, learning, evolving, drawing on his experience while surfing the edge of new sounds.
