Dusky have tapped into something, a universal – an essence that excites DJs and clubbers across the dance divide. Lee Foss included their track ‘Tyto Alba’ on his recent RA podcast; Jamie Jones dropped it at DC10 closing in Ibiza; Paul Woolford and Sasha are rinsing their tracks; bass bods T.Williams, Loefah and Boddika are pushing ‘em; and let’s not forget plays from the Radio 1 bigwigs, like Pete Tong, Toddla T, Rob Da Bank, hell, even Zane Lowe.” DJ MagazineLondon based producers Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman make house music that’s inseparable from the genre’s tradition but comes with both a widescreen ambition and a distinctly UK underground edge.Timeless, fresh, both classic and contemporary and unmistakably theirs, Dusky’s sound is influenced by everything from deep Detroit techno and bumping UK garage to classical and avant-garde electronica.
In a short time, the London based duo have rapidly marked themselves out as producers with a uniquely broad appeal. Their diverse 2011 album ‘Stick By This’ was celebrated by Pete Tong as one of the album’s of the year, singles like ‘Tyto Alba’ and ‘Flo Jam’ on Dogmatik have blown up as house/garage straddling underground anthems, while Hot Chip wasted no time in commissioning them to transform their ‘Night & Day’ single into a modern garage bomb.
At the same time, darker excursions into warehouse techno like ‘Calling Me’ and ‘Muriel’ have been hammered by Paul Woolford, Maya Jane Coles and Loefah.
As comfortable writing elegant orchestral pieces or stirring piano motifs as they are jackin’ house and techno grooves, Dusky will continue to naturally shift into new soundworlds, always united by the duo’s singular aim; to compose electronic music with depth, soul and originality.
