Inside My Holy Senses
“My Holy Senses”, the newest – and for the first time double – vinyl will be released on Silence Music right after Easter. The mini album is a collaboration between the versatile member of our family Few Nolder and Vygintas Kisevičius, the producer of a Lithuanian indie electronica project called Kurak and a renowned multi-instrumentalist and composer. Markas Palubenka, an award-winning singer and songwriter, is also featured in the album. The outcome is a short modern day love story about acoustics giving an adoring kiss to electronica in a dim light of a nightclub.
Few Nolder has already remixed Markas Palubenka’s track “Kill me”. The result was the opener of last year’s “Silence Please!” compilation that was released by Get Physical [available here]. This time the producer worked on two of Kurak’s original tracks, “My Senses“ and “Houly Pouly”. His interpretations are included in the mini album together with the original versions and two DJ-friendly edits coined by Silence’s father Vidis and Dave DK, a talented German DJ and producer whose music can be found on labels like Pampa or Kompakt.
“My Holy Senses” will be premiered in two special Silence Nights. The first one, truly holy, will coincide with Easter Sunday, and will take place in our second home, Opium Club in Vilnius, Lithuania. The following Friday Few Nolder, Markas Palubenka, Vidis and Dave DK will all show up in Salon zur Wilden Renate in Berlin.

We’re Turning Five
This might be a brand new webpage but we’re actually a bit older. The SILENCE brand was established in March 2009 and since its first day has been dedicated to recording, releasing and promoting electronic music and managing events.
SILENCE is the only Lithuanian label that is distributing its releases all over the world, both digital and physical formats, the latter consisting of CDs and vinyl. We also have a sublabel called BEST KEPT SECRET that’s oriented to dancefloors from Vilnius to Tokyo. Yep, our records are accepted best in Germany, United Kingdom, Lithuania and Japan.
SILENCE is the playground of Mario & Vidis, the most successful Lithuanian electronic music export. The company has also contributed to the success and popularity of Mario Basanov, Few Nolder, Downtown Party Network, Darius Vaikas, Leon Somov & Jazzu.
The musical side of SILENCE is usually backed with equally strong visuals. The most successful Lithuanian music videos are the ones created for SILENCE releases. These are I’ll Be Gone (more than 2 000 000 views on YouTube), Changed, Who’s Shot The Silence?!, In My System, Free and Space Me Out (created with the help of Kickstarter backers).
SILENCE has also been taking care of spreading its music as far as possible. A weekly radio show SILENCE RADIO was the first Lithuanian radio show nominated for Best International Show in the International Radio Fesgival in Zurich Switzerland. As of Spring 2014 SILENCE RADIO has moved online to become longer, deeper and more flamboyant.
SILENCE is also well known as an event and party promotion brand. We’re responsible for clubnights called SILENCE NIGHT and a live event series SILENCE LIVE that has brought Caribou, Junior Boys and Architecture in Helsinki to Vilnius. More recently we‘ve worked as communication and marketing partners for the live show of Bonobo in Vilnius. Since October 2012 SILENCE have been promoting and marketing events in OPIUM nightclub also located in Vilnius.
