Decorated by their multi-genre discography and a commendable collective musical know-how, it’s no wonder Dark Sky find themselves with the success they enjoy at present. Seven years on from their inception, a constant rota of innovative releases and DJ/live touring has seen them climb from their humble beginnings to heights that well and truly surpass the, ahem, dark sky above them. With an ability to tug on your heartstrings on one release, obliterate all feelings of warmth with pure ruggedness on the next, and then piece the two contrasting emotions expertly back together with another release, a wide base of support from across the globe would be the least you’d expect to see for the London-based duo. Their debut album Imagin on Monkeytown Records in 2014 is emblematic of their remarkable versatility, and their ability to step outside of a club-focused workspace to create standalone pieces of art only heightens their eminence in the electronic sphere.
As we wait patiently for the imminent second album on Monkeytown, we are very pleased to present Dark Sky as today’s Tracks of the Day selectors. Inside are four records that have been recent additions to their record bag — so be sure to look out for them on their bi-weekly show on NTS Radio. Alternatively, if you can’t wait until then, be sure to get yourself down to Moth Club in Hackney tomorrow evening to catch the pair for a steal at £6.
