Review: This duo have been generating heat with everyone from Pete Tong to bass DJs - but is the hype justified? At the outset, the title track seems non-descript, with a typical if somewhat inoffensive shuffling funky/bass groove. But then an over the top filter and a wild, acidic bassline kick in as moody vocals lurk in the background. It sounds like a halfway house between Rinse FM and Larry Heard, unlike anything else that's out there. That said, "What I Do" will probably get as much attention, thanks to its stepping rhythm, moody bassline and gloriously soulful, Burial-esque vocal that lingers seductively in the ether.

Review: Earlier this year, Dusky duo Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman popped up on Will Saul's Simple Records, delivering dizzying blends of deep house and garage. Here they re-release "Flo Jam", the lead cut from their recent EP of the same name on Dogmatik. It's a delicious track, all told, sitting somewhere between the crystal clear melodies of Futureboogie Recordings (think Eats Everything, Christophe or Crackazat rather than Julio Bashmore), German deep house and classic Chicagoan acid. There's enough old skool swing to make it interesting, but plenty of contemporary style to impress the hipsters.

Review: Dusky have come far in quite a short space with their modern house music interpretations and make quite a decisive move with a high profile transfer from Simple Records to Aus Music. This is still prime, slickly executed house music but with a healthy amount of bass woven into the mix, not least on the fearsome "Alone". A meaty sub line pulses out under the crisp 4/4 while interludes of found-sound percussion come darting in amongst snippets of vocal for a surefire banger. "Dummy" likewise flexes its brawn with pride, from the snappy beat to the punchy bassline, even as the synth elements are intent on sending the track into more spaced-out places.

Review: London based duo Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman present their stunning new project Dusky. Previously going under the name of Solarity with a more progressive house, sound their latest incarnation is a finer detailed musical showcase. Combining beautiful orchestral elements with captivating vocals, creating a unique collection of tracks with depth and originality. 'Lost In You' & 'It's Not Enough' (both featuring Janai), and 'Need You Back' really stand out and will no doubt get further remix treatment from the Anjuna usual suspects.

Review: After conquering the scene with releases for Will Saul's reinvigorated Simple and Dogmatik, Dusky return to their spiritual home of Anjunadeep with the first in a series of remix EPs. First up, Jozif Voxatron transforms "It's Not Enough" with his own brand of Baltic swing, while Andre Crom transforms the high-octane "Lost In You" into something with a little more swagger, and Thomas Langner changes the laid back "Falling" into a groovesome roller. By far our pick however is Tevo Howard's Chicago house revision of "Lost Highway", stripping everything back to its bare rhythmic components, firming them up, and rebuilding the whole thing with a ton more soul.
