Life Signs Vol.1 – Dusky

First up, I can’t describe this new 3-track release by Dusky without loving on the name of the first track; Boris Borisson’s Trip To Morissons. I mean, what are they thinking? And why? I love it.

Anyway, to the music – it is another consistent (read, massive) release from the lads from London. It delivers just what you’d expect – some ethereal cords, some tasty nostalgic vocal samples, and some even more tasty breaks. Sharp.

A line paraphrased from the review on RA: Dusky deliver the “general feeling of roofs being raised”. And if you want to do just that, you’re in luck – join in for their 5th in a series of 8 hour sets at Mick’s Garage this Saturday. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

More Dusky loving by me here.

Dusky

So Dusky have announced they are coming back for the 5th instalment of their ‘Take a Trip‘ Series. What does this mean? It means another chance to go on an 8 hour journey through the day and night with these colossi of the house music scene. Not one to miss.

It also means I have the perfect excuse to post some bangers. This is one deep discography for a duo that have only been around since 2011. Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend listeners.

KiNK

Lucky reader, I have 3 of the highest quality house tracks going for you today – all courtesy of KiNK. Strahil Velchev is the face of the Bulgarian electronic music scene. In my mind he is almost uniquely talented in taking massive, experimental steps in his production and yet still making music that is super listenable. No, I want to go further than that – he makes unfamiliar music that reaches out and grabs you, lifts you onto its shoulders and takes you on a wild beautiful ride. That’s what I hear anyway – let me know what you think.

First up Pocket Piano.

And now Dusky’s remix of Perth, followed by a KiNK remix of Jimpster.
