Dusky is an electronic music duo from London consisting of Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman.

Formed in 2011, they have released on labels such Anjunadeep, Simple Records, Dogmatik Records, Aus Music and Naked Naked, before setting up their own label 17 Steps in July 2014 with the release of the Love Taking Over EP.

Recognised for their high quality house and techno sound, Dusky’s music is influenced by everything from jazz to classical and to avant-garde electronica.

Their focus on musical depth as opposed to genre restrictions and categorisation has seen their music played by DJs as diverse as Pete Tong, Maya Jane Coles, Boddika, Mark Knight and Laurent Garnier.

Dusky’s diverse compositions are brought together by the duo’s mantra; to create music with soul, depth and originality.

The duo were voted as DJ Mag Best British Producers in 2013.

Their debut album ‘Stick By This’ was named by Pete Tong as ‘one of the albums of the year’ in 2011 and picked up BBC Radio 1 play from Rob Da Bank, Toddla T, Zane Lowe and Pete Tong himself.

Dusky’s track ‘Careless’ reached No.1 on the Beatport Top 100 [] Chart, remaining at top spot for over 3 weeks.

It also reached No.1 in the Beatport Top 100 Chart.

The track was part of the four track ‘Careless EP’, which was released on Will Saul’s taste-making Aus label and followed their previous Beatport top 10 success ‘Nobody Else’ on the label.

In 2014, Dusky released their ‘Love Taking Over EP’, the first on their 17 Steps label.

The track was debuted by a Special Delivery on Annie Mac‘s BBC Radio 1 show and picked up further support across the station from Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Mistajam, B. Traits and Rob Da Bank among others.

Standout live sets include performances at UK clubs XOYO and Fabric, hosting a Dusky Presents at Fabriclive in March 2014, as well as their residency at Ibiza’s We Love…Sundays at Space.

They have also played festival sets across the globe including Glastonbury Festival in the UK, Belgium’s Pukkelpop, Serbia’s Exit Festival and Germany’s Melt!, …
