Silly Syl Radio



future ~ timeless ~ electronic ~ r&b ~ hip-hopI'm Silly Syl. I'm a Boston-bred, Oakland-based DJ. I've had a voracious appetite for music of many genres since I was just a lil tyke. I learned how to DJ during my senior year of college in 2013. Spinning at fraternity parties was fun, but after graduation, I decided it was time to move up to the big leagues and join a professional DJing company in Boston. As I continued to grow professionally and creatively, I sought an environment where I could really express myself through music. The Bay Area was calling my name, so I packed up and started fresh in a new scene at the end of 2015.Now you'll typically find me spinning at queer events like Vice Tuesdays at QBar or hip-hop nights at Slate in SF. I've even DJed weddings and day-parties at local breweries. So far I've DJed in Boston, Worcester, San Francisco, Oakland, LA, Oregon, and Hawaii.I have a real knack for spinning Top 40 and Hip-Hop in a refreshing format at these events. But my Soundcloud page showcases the indie hip-hop and underground electronic music that I thrive on. Listen to my radio show every Tuesday at 6pm PT on (LIVE Channel) to get a feel for my personality and my new favorite tracks of the week.Contact me at DJSillySyl @ gmail. com if you'd like to book me for an event. Bay Area-based but will travel!

    This past weekend I performed a virtual set for @goodsociety's festival, Binary Skies. It was such an honor to perform along the likes of Deffie, Roto, MadBliss, Sofasound, Stripess, and so many other talented artists. All proceeds to this festival are going to the NAACP and Color of Change. I hope you enjoy my hip-hop and electronic based set, recorded on a patio in San Francisco's iconic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

    Oh what a time it was when we could roll up to The End Up for a sweet sweet day-party with friends amidst the brisk San Francisco air. My friends @gcodepresents invited me to spin their event DAYCODE and they graciously recorded my live performance. You all know by now how I traverse a multitude of genres in my sets. And true to form, this mix includes g-house, disco house, future bass, electronic, and baile funk. Plus I even hop on the mic mid-set to sing a cover. Hope you enjoy the tunes and that it takes you back to brighter days.

    03/08/2018 Duration: 02h13min

    Welcome to the third installment of the HeartBrokeBeatz series. This mix is painfully honest. It was difficult to create. Although the story may involve a boy, it’s not about him really. It’s about my experience of falling for a fantasy, through my eyes...and my voice, along with @cardlinaudio, voicing the male counterpart. I can’t thank him enough for helping me bring my creative vision to life with his resonant and emotional vocals. If you’re ready to hear my truth, open your heart and press play. tracklist: 1.

    Skin To Skin: A Guided Session by DJ Silly Syl

    21/11/2016 Duration: 01h57min

    Welcome to Skin to Skin. Thanks for tuning in. This 2-hour mix is your soundtrack to an intimate journey. Think of the start of the mix as flirtatious foreplay. Marc. E Bassy's got his hotel room all ready for you and then @iamblackbear lets you know it's bout that time you slide thru. The mood shifts pretty quickly from flirtation to seduction as the darker electronic tracks set in. There's a touch of heartbreak as @worshipuk sings on repeat, "You're always in my heart, no matter where you are" and @active-child croons, "hold me close, never let go." @bbjuelz serves as the preamble to the peak of energy with his remix of Travis Scott's "Whole Lotta Lovin." Get ready to be slammed with some heavy-hitting bass and dubstep moving forward. Your head will be spinning electro circles, before we begin our descent into trap and hip-hop. @obeson slows it down with "Hazy", featuring vocalist @abbipress. It's the kind of song you let wash over you as endorphins pump throughout your body, eventually coming back down

    I recently discovered DJ/producer Kasia from her remix of Travis Scott's "Antidote." Since I had really been digging her style and she gave me a follow-back on Soundcloud, I figured I'd reach out to see if she'd be down to do a guest mix for my show. She threw down a filthy set and inspired me to pull out some more hip-hop and trap bangers. Rage face to the first 30 mins and then come down with the second half of the show.
