In support of their sophomore album Outer (released on October 14th via Astralwerks/17 Steps), Dusky have announced a 15-date North American DJ tour.
Dusky’s forthcoming album, Outer, represents the latest step in a journey that has seen the London duo appeal to electronic music fans of many ages and tribes. Favorites of Radio 1’s dance music curators Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard, Duskyremain regulars on both Resident Advisor DJ polls and Rinse FM tracklists alike. As DJs, they have played everywhere from Berlin’s Panorama Bar and Ibiza’s DC10 to the biggest dance festival stages in the U.S.
In Outer, Dusky have sought to distil the immediacy of their many dancefloor passions whilst “drawing on our wider influences and exploring sounds beyond our DJ sets.” Removed of restrictions, the album’s first single “Ingrid Is A Hybrid” provided a window into these new experiments, but also sounded instantly Dusky. It was soon followed by the innovative grime and techno fusion “Sort It Out Sharon” featuring Godfather of grime Wiley. With further collaborations with synth icon Gary Numan, Maribou State affiliate Pedestrian and Decca’s Solomon Grey, Dusky’s Outer is the duo’s most expansive work to date.
