Only on the scene for a little over a year now, London duo Dusky brings us their Nobody Else EP, a 4-track on Aus records, home to releases by George FitzGerald and Bicep. Their EP, only a month old, features the track "Nobody Else", currently holding the #5 spot on Beatport.com. A more melodic sounding deep house, "Nobody Else" incorporates a 90's garage feel with the claps and female vocals, but slows it down for a really clean sound. "What I Never Knew", the second song on the EP gets a little deeper, keeping the swing, but bringing a powerful bassline to keep the groove going under the warped vocals. The third track speeds things up a little, with some erratic percussion, definitely more a tech vibe here. "Atone" shows you two things; Dusky sure know how to keep the vocals coming strong, and never underestimate the power of a cowbell. The fourth and final song, "Dummy" brings it back to a deeper house sound; a fat, distorted bassline, and echo-y vocals. Definitely going to nod your head to this one.
With their tracks being played on BBC Radio One and Rinse FM by DJs like MJ Cole and Laurent Garnier, I definitely see more Dusky releases for us in the near future.
