DESCRIPTION
 

Dusky are London based production and DJ duo Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell. Responsible for scene smashes such as ‘Nobody Else’, Beatport #1 ‘Careless’ and this year's ‘Love Taking Over’ on their own 17 Steps label, the pair's diverse appeal has left them riding at the vanguard of the UK's house and techno renaissance, with an evolving sound that shows little sign of lingering in one place for too long.

The second release on their rising 17 Steps label, the classy and unique rave rush of 'Yoohoo' again takes their sound into new territory. Built around a distinctive vocal sample (lifted from d&b outfit Kosheen's ‘Catch’), 'Yoohoo' rattles out with tough, techy bass stabs but comes alive with its nostalgic, euphoria-loaded piano house melodies that recall Chicago classics from 88, Sasha at Shelley's and Raindance at Jenkins Lane. Evoking a halcyon era with class and without cliche, 'Yoohoo' draws on the duo's deep love of classic house, rave and techno, and reconstructs it for 2014 in their unique style.

Showcasing the darker, deeper side of Dusky, the b-side 'Akebono' is a twisted, heads-down blend of house, techno and garage influences - all assembled into another inimitably Dusky production. Shot with sinister soul, dark synths and rattling bass, 'Akebono' captures a distinctly UK and distinctly Dusky sound.
