Dusky Remix Contest

Status: Winners announced!

With DJs as varied as Jamie Jones, Toddla T and Jody Wisternoff (Way Out West) currently supporting their tracks, Dusky are one of the most exciting new names in house and techno. Recently released on Anjunadeep, their debut artist album “Stick By This”  was described as “An intoxicating album, full of life and flashes of brilliance” by DJ Magazine.

Dusky are London based musicians Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman. As comfortable writing elegant orchestral pieces or stirring piano motifs as they are jackin’ house and epic techno grooves, Dusky’s diverse sounds are united by the duo’s singular aim – to compose electronic music with depth, soul and originality.

The lead single from “Stick By This”, Dusky feat. Janai “Lost In You” was one of the album’s many highlights. Supported by BBC Radio 1 and house godfather Tony Humphries, “Lost In You” blended bass-driven house grooves and beautiful pianos with Janai’s searching vocals. Now Dusky and Anjunadeep have teamed up with Findremix.com to offer you the chance to remix this modern classic.

Grab the stems below, get your creative juices flowing and send us your remix for a chance to secure a release on the acclaimed Anjunadeep, as well as prizes from Soundcloud, Propellerhead, Primeloops, Point Blank and more.
