DUSKY

Yoohoo

Following their recent ‘Love Taking Over EP’, Dusky have announced the second release on their 17 Steps label. Dusky are London based production and DJ duo Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell. Responsible for scene smashes such as “Flo Jam,” “Nobody Else” and Beatport #1 “Careless,” the pair’s diverse appeal has left them riding at the vanguard of the UK’s house and techno renaissance, with an evolving sound that shows little sign of lingering in one place for too long. Built around a distinctive vocal sample, “Yoohoo” rattles out with tough, techy bass stabs but comes alive with its nostalgic, euphoria-loaded piano house melodies that recall Chicago classics from 88, Sasha at Shelley’s and Raindance at Jenkins Lane – as debuted as Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune last Friday. Evoking a halcyon era with class and without cliche, “Yoohoo” draws on the duo’s deep love of classic house, rave and techno, and reconstructs it for 2014 in their unique style.
