Fresh off the back of their new album ‘Outer,’ Dusky are set to play an intimate live show in Nottingham this weekend, following their steady rise in popularity over the past year. The new album has been a long time coming, with the duo having only released short EP’s since their debut ‘Stick By This’ in 2011. Deep and dark techno beats compliment a range of lighter house melodies and even include vocals from the likes of Wiley and Gary Numan cleverly mixed in. Hits such as ‘Ingrid is a Hybrid’ have been a summer festival favourite this year, being featured on Annie Mac’s new collection ‘Annie Mac Presents,’ adding to the sudden upsurge in admiration for Dusky. With a tour on the way at the beginning of the New Year, the future is looking bright for Alfie-Granger Howell and Nick Harriman who are now the proud owners of their own record label ’17 Steps’ after previously being signed to ‘Anjunadeep’ run by the renowned electronic act ‘Above & Beyond.’
While not part of their new tour ‘Dusky: Live,’ the one-off show on Saturday will take place at The Brickworks, a small warehouse space in Hockley away from the busy crowds of a Saturday night in Market Square. Only opening a couple of times a month, The Brickworks has been home to many other small-scale underground acts with a unique sound such as Ame, Joy Orbison and TEED this Autumn. It will be the perfect venue for Dusky fans to experience their amazing production and lighting combined with the ethereal beats of their set that create a euphoric atmosphere amongst the crowd. The tickets were quick to sell out and with even the depths of Buy/Sell not been able to produce the goods, many have been left disappointed. If this was you, make sure to put tickets for their tour onto your Christmas list for this year, if things keep going the way they’re going for the boys, it will be a sell-out too.
