Futra presents Dark Sky

  • Futra presents.... DARK SKY (50 Weapons, Black Acre) UK Tom, Matt and Carlo together make up the London based production and DJ unit Dark Sky. Having met at music college, Dark Sky formed in 2008 out of a mutual love for the ever evolving London electronic music scene, a love that the trio have always reflected through not only their DJ sets but also their productions, drawing influences from original UK garage through to house, via drum & bass and hip hop. It wasn’t long before their forward thinking outlook on production and DJing got noticed and their debut 12″ was picked up by the Bristol imprint Black Acre. The release was met by rave reviews and since then further releases have been signed with consistent success to Pictures Music, Ninja Tune, Blunted Robots and Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons imprint. “Dark Sky are winning fans by daring to be experimental, diverse and multi-textured but also noisily and thrillingly addictive” Resident Advisor “All things considered, the trajectory of London production trio Dark Sky is a little extraordinary. While most producers exercising within the soupy realm of dubstep, garage, funky and grime have fell victim to swells of hype and criticism as various buzz words and sonic trends zoom in and out of bass music fashion, these guys have stuck to a formula that benefits each song as a whole piece of music, as opposed to just focusing on staple elements reflective of the zeitgeist.” -Fact Magazine To sample the breadth of their tastes, tune into their bi-weekly radio show on NTS RADIO EEZIR (Futra) LA Aaron Shinn (Futra, Music For Nightclubs) LA EshOne (Elk Beats, Dataset) SD Visual Experience + Eyeonasphere: Michael Allen Dance Performance: A.D.E. & Choreography: Monilade
