CFCF is the moniker of Mike Silver, an indie electronic producer from Montreal, Canada, who established himself as an inventive remixer before making his commercial production debut in 2008. A self-taught musician, Silver's style has evolved and matured throughout the years, ranging from his earliest hip-hop production experiments to chiptunes, progressing to the Balearic disco of debut full-length ‘Continent’ (2009) and ambient/new age explorations like 2015's ‘The Colours of Life’.
Throughout much of his work during the 2010s, Silver has exhibited a sincere appreciation for "uncool" genres such as soft rock and smooth jazz. He is also co-credited with developing the concept of "night bus," an Internet-spawned movement that encompasses feelings rather than specific genres of music.´
CFCF was nominated for Best Remixed Recording at the 2015 Grammy Awards, for his remix of Max Richter's "Berlin by Overnight." His subsequent work has explored his formative influences, with 2019's ‘Liquid Colours’ re-creating the commercial side of atmospheric drum'n'bass and 2021's ‘Memoryland’ evoking several styles of electronica and alternative rock.
He is part of the delegation of Québec artists that #MUTEKES13 presents as part of the celebrations of the 25th Anniversary of the Treaty of Cooperation between Catalonia and Québec.
