Max Flyant

My name is Maxim Flyantikov aka "Max Flyant". I have been involved in music since the very early ages. I started my research of electronic melodies, synths & beats from rather hard styles: goa trance, psychedelic techno, drum'n'bass, jungle and even hardcore. Such music has opened for 13-year me absolutely new, unbeleivable world.
Although, the real love to electronic music appeared in 2001, when I met Alexey Golovanov better known today as "Mango". Those were the times when Alex had an access to all the latest stuff in trance, house and techno genres, that had been launched in the greatest compilations "Kontor - Top of the clubs", "Dreamdance", "Technodrom". These new genres changed all of my previous views on electronic music in general. That's were my & Mango's paths connected in one.
Since 2003 Mango has started to write music in different styles & genres, gradually gaining experience and his own unique style. I was his first and biggest fan from that time.
In 2007 I made a complex marketing research of record-business in the world and decided to promote Mango in a professional way. I sent best works of him to all leading labels around the globe. And the result came quickly: tracks gained great feedback and support from Stefan Anion. On the other side Retroid - a young, but already well-known producer, owner of label "Morphosis records", signed Mango's tracks and involved him in remixing. From now on the success was only in Alex's hands and he didn't miss his chance.
The same year I got in touch with another young musician & dj from Perm-city - Arthur Abidzhba aka "Arthur Deep" and also started promoting his works. Together with Mango I worked a lot to discover more about other labels, in order to make a wish come true - to open our own digital label. The day of birth was 17 July 2007: when a name "Silk Digital records" has been finally chosen from a big variety of others. Soon I have involved my close friend and a talented designer - Michael Alexeev and IT-engineer & financial manager - Anthon Vorobiev. Together we have developed label fast, by launching the official website, gaining some serious contracts with strong distributors, gathering together many young and perspective artists from different countries. The first release came out in January 2008, and it had positive feedback from the greatest djs and musicians around the globe.
Up to date, excluding the main "Silk Digital records" label, guys opened two subdivisions - "Silk Sofa music" & "Silk Royal records". Two newer subdivisions are coming in 2010: "Silk Textures" and "Arrival recordings".
Today I control all of the main deals of our labels, manage Silk Digital records & Silk Textures, host Silk's 2-hour exclusive monthly radioshow "Only silk" on Frisky radio and, not without Mango's support, gain invaluable experience in writing my own music. I see the future in bright colors as long as my best friends surround me, I work with beloved music and receive the great feedback from it.
