The English duo put out a Facebook status hinting at a debut tour.
It’s turned into a sort of a trend now. As hard as promoters try to keep their groundbreaking artist announcements a secret, news almost always leaks before they intend on revealing it. Sometimes, it’s the artists themselves who push out more than just hints.
This time, it’s London based musicians Dusky. They updated their status (directed at the Indian audience) asking fans what they think is the best city to play at, in India. Previously existing as progressive / melodic house entity Solarity, Dusky consists of Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman.
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.
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.
As Dusky, they enjoyed their best moment in their musical career in the most of October last year as their track ‘Careless’ topped the Deep House & the overall Beatport charts – and stayed there for quite some time.
Dusky have quickly marked themselves out as producers with a uniquely broad appeal. As dance legend Pete Tong bigs them up on BBC Radio 1 and DJs like T. Williams and DMZ’s Loefah hammer their tracks on urban phenomenon Rinse FM, the future is looking bright for Dusky.
Also, with the enormous growth in the Indian Deep/Tech scene – they couldn’t have timed their tour at a better time. The Sherp is excited for this.
Stay tuned to The Sherp, he will keep you up to speed on this, as always.
