Dusky's 17 Steps opens 2015 by welcoming its first signed artist to the label in the much-admired London producer Christian Piers.
One half of Laszlo Dancehall with Leon Vynehall, Christian Piers' 'Beat Wiser EP' follows his recent single on Curle Recordings which has been supported by the likes of DVS1, Âme, Axel Bowman and Jonas Kopp.
A mainstay in Dusky's sets in recent months, the lead track 'Offf' is a monstrous techno drum track rewired with Roland Alpha Juno esque hoovers and sinister atmosphere, 'Offf' has proved a reliable dancefloor detonator on both big festival stages and intimate basements in recent months.
A refreshing and dark take on classic acid, the EPs title track 'Beat Wiser' balances sharp, surging machine funk 303s with a tribal and organic percussion approach for a unique club tool.
Closing the diverse EP, 'Onn' again draws on a tribal groove, this time set against looping, hypnotic techno soundscapes.
