Rising stars of the UK dance music scene, London duo Dusky bring their showcase to Glasgow in December for a full-on night taking in deep house, techno, and myriad hybrid sounds.
London based producers Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman make house music that’s inseparable from the genre’s tradition but comes with a widescreen ambition and a distinct UK underground edge. Both classic and contemporary, Dusky’s sound is influenced by everything from deep Detroit techno and bumping UK garage to classical and avant-garde electronica.
Their diverse 2011 album Stick By This was celebrated by Pete Tong as one of the albums of the year. 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 countless others.
Having recently launched their brand new label 17 Steps, Dusky now embark on The Next Step – a 30-date-plus tour across autumn and winter, compromised almost exclusively of extended 4-hour sets. With their own productions regularly championed by DJs such as Loefah, Boddika, Skream and Sasha, their exclusive 4-hour set at The Arches will no doubt include classic singles ‘Flo Jam,’ ‘Nobody Else’ and ‘Rise For Love,’ ‘Love Taking Over’ and their latest single, ‘Yoohoo.’
They will be joined by some top quality guests on the night – Dutch house and techno sensation and Voyage Direct founder Tom Trago, Funkinevil (aka Detroit’s Kyle Hall and London’s Funkineven), Leeds-based producer Youandewan and Berlin’s Palms Trax. This promises to be one of the nights of the year – take the Next Step with Dusky and friends at The Arches on Friday 5 December.
