Dusky are an electronic music duo from London consisting of Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman. Formed in 2011, they have released on labels such Anjunadeep, Simple Records, Dogmatik Records, Aus Music and Naked Naked, before setting up their own label 17 Steps in July 2014 with the release of the Love Taking Over EP.
Dusky's house and techno sound is influenced by jazz, classical, and avant-garde electronica. Their music has been played by DJs such as Pete Tong, Maya Jane Coles, Boddika, Mark Knight, and Laurent Garnier.
Before the formation of Dusky, the duo made music under the name of Solarity.
Dusky’s track "Careless" reached No.1 on the Beatport Top 100 [clarification needed] Chart, remaining at the top spot for over 3 weeks. The track was part of the four track Careless EP, which was released on Will Saul's Aus Music label and followed their previous Beatport top 10 success "Nobody Else" on the label.
