FACT mix 423: Dusky

This week’s FACT mix comes from Dusky, one of the UK’s most in-demand house acts.

Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman have only been releasing as Dusky since 2011 (prior to that, they recorded as Solarity) but they’ve already built up quite a catalogue with the name. Originally releasing through trance behemoth Above & Beyond’s label Anjunadeep, after the duo’s debut album Stick By This they started to branch out. Dusky have always been open about their debt to UK garage, as well as the “darker, dirtier” side of drum’n’bass, and on their post-Stick By This releases, housed on labels like School, Simple and Aus, they’ve explored a heavier, more swung sound that nods to acts like Bump & Flex without losing the ear for a simple hook that got Dusky attention in the first place.

It’s testament to Dusky’s growing reputation that London’s Fabric have handed the keys to the entire club over to them on March 14, with Loefah, Grant Nelson (as Nice N Ripe), Artwork (as Grain), Joey Beltram and more performing across all three rooms. The countdown starts today with Dusky’s FACT mix – Midland, Paleman, Snow Ghosts, Armando and more feature.

As well as Fabric, Londoners will be able to catch Dusky at Field Day Festival in June, and the duo will also be heading to Southport next month for the Bugged Out Weekender.
