Part of the Deep South takeover
Dark Sky are a duo that is synonymous with the UK’s underground scene. Having met at Secondary school, Matt Benyayer and Tom Edwards formed Dark Sky in 2009 out of a mutual love for the ever evolving London electronic music scene.
Fast forward nearly a decade and their contribution to this scene is impressive to say the least. Their music has found its way on esteemed labels such as Mister Saturday Night, 50WEAPONS, Tectonic and MonkeyTown records. MonkeyTown records has become a home for their longer releases. In 2014 their debut album Imagin was put out on the imprint. This year they returned their sophomore LP Othona, which was recently remixed by Roman Flugel, Zenker Brothers and Danny Daze.
Their numerous studio productions have inspired the duo to recreate the magic through a finely-tuned live set. Already performing this at Glastonbury, Percolate, as well throughout Europe, they’re bringing it to Deep South. Last year we featured them in Tracks Of The Day, where they picked out recent additions to their record bag. The selection was a testament to their insane curation during DJ sets, and intricate electronic music knowledge. We’re very happy to have them return to the series a year later as part of the Deep South takeover. This time their focusing their attention on their favourite live acts at them moment.
“We’re excited to head to Deep South festival this year to check out the wicked lineup, and also to perform live on the Saturday night. Our live show is something we’ve been developing a lot over the years and it currently features an all hardware setup with two drum machines, a host of synths, guitar pedals and an analog mixer. The setlist is always evolving but we’ll be dissecting new tracks alongside old ones for good measure!”
