SJ Silk & Fuss
Born and raised in Alkmaar, Sem and Damon started to experiment with DJ equipment and developed their interest in music at age eleven. After discovering the extensive range of music the world had to offer, the duo found their passion within the House genre. In 2019, the duo decided to take Silk & Fuss to the next level and fully commit to their DJ careers. As a result, they managed to be one of the youngest acts to perform at the famous United Ants and get their first foreign gig in Germany. After releasing their track “Funky Freddy” on Solid Grooves in 2021, the boys secured their first Beatport No.1 track. Their passion for radio led to the launch of their monthly podcast, Silk & Fuss’ Finest. What started as a radio show to entertain their audience with their own music quickly evolved into a show with big guest DJs such as Cab Drivers, Jovonn, Politics of Dancing, and many more. The podcast was broadcasted on six different radio stations with over 5.000 listeners every month. Silk & Fuss had their tracks supported by the likes of Archie Hamilton, Paco Osuna, Pawsa, Michael Bibi, Riva Starr, Pete Tong, Cassius, Roger Sanchez, Stacey Pullen, Joris Voorn, Anotr, and many more acclaimed artists.
