Dusky – 4T4 (Original Mix)
Anjunadeep’s compilation series has become the effective channel for showcasing the label’s acclaimed and carefully handpicked sound. Last year’s Anjunadeep 05 quickly rose to the #1 position on iTune’s US Dance charts, impressively harnessing both depth and breadth of quality deep house artists. Among the mix’s vast talent pool, the UK’s own Dusky emerged as one of the clear favorites of a class of stellar tunes with “Nobody Else” and “Mr. Man” as their compelling contributions.
Dusky returns to the series on the upcoming Anjunadeep 06, once again masterfully mixed by James Grant and Jody Wisternoff, offering the deep-rooted single “4T4.” As their first original piece since the three-song Love Taking Over EP, “4T4” continues to flaunt the duo’s melodic underground finesse through a rhythmic backbone of glitchy synth chords and heart-beating bassline. A combination of soft atmospheric chords and haunting vocals later suspends the piece’s midsection for a beautifully emotional interlude before uniting back with the shuffling beat. Dusky’s influence on today’s pure house and techno sounds are undeniable, and “4T4” along with their current flow of releases signals a promising stamina for maintaining the magic.
