Dusky Release new Critically Acclaimed album “Outer”
Celebrated as leaders of the house and techno world, Dusky have today dropped their highly anticipated and genre-blending artist album Outer including collaborations with the legendary Gary Numan and the godfather of grime Wiley. Outer is available for purchase HERE.
“‘Outer’ is something we’ve been working on for some time so to finally see it out there is a big moment for us. Massive thanks to all our musical collaborators on the project – Gary Numan, Wiley, Pedestrian, Solomon Grey and Andrew Wyatt. Enjoy.” Nick and Alfie (Dusky)
A journey through Dusky’s many influences and a genuinely expansive body of work, Outer absorbs everything from Belgian techno, UK hardcore and vintage progressive house to ambient, new beat and electronica – all reshaped into modern hybrids in the duo’s unique style. Leading into the album’s release, Billboard premiered track “Swansea” featuring the legendary Gary Numan yesterday, describing it as “goth-pop paradise.”
With the album representing a clear artistic progression for Dusky, past singles such as “Ingrid Is A Hybrid” (Annie Mac’s Hottest Record/Forza Horizon 3), warehouse techno curveball “Sort It Out Sharon” featuring godfather of grime Wiley and the atmospheric “Long Wait” with Solomon Grey were last week followed by the menacing club anthem “Songs Of Phase” – christened Essential New Tune by Pete Tong.
Elsewhere, the duo’s unique capacity for inventive sampling and cleverly reshaping their influences remains as dominant as it did on their breakthrough underground club singles. From the Orbital-referencing synth-and-strings crescendos of intro “All We Ever Needed” to the UK house meets hardcore-era Prodigy of “Runny Nose,” Outer is rooted in club culture and history.
