About the film

If you happened to go to Distortion’s final event, you might already be familiar with the artist collective 100% Silk, which of course had its own tent right where this year’s biggest street party took place. The ultra-hot, Los Angeles-based label creates a musical microcosm with references to the heyday of ghetto blasters, as they take to the turntables and mix underground house with noise in a delicious and danceable mix. The collective’s brand-new film “Silk”, which follows the four cool 100% Silk members, headed by L.A. Vampires (a.k.a. Amanda Brown) and Maria Minerva, as they pack the tour bus and embark on a kaleidoscopic tour through club life, the body and boundlessness – while the soundtrack like a telepathic radio captures their thoughts and shares them with us! Here, you can really talk about a “voice of God”, which describes the spiritual relationship between the artist and the audience, inside and out, and where club culture is a state of ecstasy, which is equal parts physical, mental, artistic and musical.
