Dusky – Love Taking Over (Original Mix) [Preview]
Just moments away from a whirlwind global tour of extended four-hour sets, you don’t need the itinerary of their The Next Step tour to realize that Dusky remains one of the most persistent forces in British house music on the beat right now. Having straddled the boundaries between house and techno with outright diligence towards dance floors across the globe to date, the namesake offering of the first instalment of their newly formed 17 Steps imprint puts Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman right on course for another summer of domination.
Already delivered as a ‘Special Delivery’ by Annie Mac on BBC Radio One, “Love Taking Over” embodies that exact musical scent that has made the duo’s studio maneuvers both on record and behind the decks so interesting. Chugging away with the bravado of weathered European techno whilst building on subtle melodic elements and heavy-footed low-end moments, the track proves that the less is more approach can still deliver an unforgettable moment in underground house conduct. Dusky is one of the most highly evolved acts to grip the genres heartstrings right now, and in 2014, the Love Taking Over EP might just be that next essential romancing short player from the duo.
