Dusky on the "Past, Present, and Future" of Electronic Dance Music

Being the electronic music geeks that we are here at Crossfade, we've been following the "post-dubstep" confluence of house and bass music in the UK with major interest for some time now. Influences from jungle, drum 'n' bass, UK garage, and other styles are seeping into house's four-on-the-floor mold, injecting new life into a genre that was growing tiredly derivative.

Ben UFO, George FitzGerald, Skream and T. Williams are just a few of the trend's exponents that we've spoken to in the past. And another exemplary act making big waves across the Atlantic right now is DJ-production duo Dusky, dubbed "the toast of the UK underground" by Resident Advisor at the height of their meteoric rise last year.
