DESCRIPTION
 

17 Steps is the new record label from UK act Dusky, aka Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell.  The debut 'Love Taking Over EP' leads with a unique title track that represents Dusky's hybrid approach to production perfectly. Drawing on dark, hypnotic melodies that reference classic jungle vibes, soulful vocal samples, and tough, intricate grooves, 'Love Taking Over' also hits with a gritty percussive edge; making for a fresh and distinctly Dusky production.

Second track 'Inta' connects even more directly with Dusky's formative jungle and rave influences growing up in London - taking its title and key sample from the classic 'Inta' by Grooverider's Inta Warriors alias. Archetypal of Dusky's genre-merging approach, 'Inta' blends sub heavy bass pulses with dark synths and vintage rave motifs to form an unflinching and heavy dancefloor sound.

Completing the EP in style, 'Expectations' is a track that has been on heavy rotation in Dusky's DJ sets over the year. A tough, no nonsense, floor burning house jam, "Expectations" instantly strikes a groove with its simple bass line and quirky jazz-inspired lead. Again summoning dark, D&B-inspired bass on its cavernous breakdown, "Expectations" is loaded with the texture and detail that Dusky are renowned.
