DUSKY

Dusky are London based musicians Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman. As comfortable writing elegant orchestral pieces or stirring piano motifs as they are jackin’ house and epic techno grooves, Dusky’s diverse sounds are united by the duo’s singular aim – to compose electronic music with depth, soul and originality.Influenced by everything from classical and jazz to avant-garde electronica, the duo’s emphasis on musical depth rather than genre restrictions has seen their compositions played by DJs as diverse as Pete Tong, Vincenzo, Zane Lowe, MJ Cole, Dubfire, Sasha and Laurent Garnier. Also existing as progressive/melodic house entity Solarity, they conceived their Dusky moniker as an outlet for their more organic, wide-ranging sounds – a deeply musical expansion of their nocturnal inspirations.

Always intelligent, effortlessly intricate and often emotive, Dusky’s sound glides across genres easily. With their debut single ‘Lost In You’ offering a soul-drenched summer house anthem, the duo’s debut album ‘Stick By This’ was described as “an intoxicating album full of flashes of brilliance and innovation” by DJMag. With the album touching on ambient, dub, electronica and their organic take on house and techno, Dusky have quickly marked themselves out as producers with a uniquely broad appeal.dusky-live
