Dark Sky

The UK bass scene is a nebulous territory - yet Dark Sky are a trio that have consistently been releasing Earth tremors along our tiny island.

Whereas previously they've ticked various housey, melodic boxes, the south Londoners' recent Tectonic release sees the group grappling with hard-hitting percussion and devastating synth blows.

A pneumatic drill of a bassline is cut through by a relentless kick drum, tipping its hat to the sounds of the motor city. Respite comes briefly - and then we're plunged back into a murky onslaught of heads-down dynamics.

And you can catch Dark Sky playing live at Land of Kings this Sunday at Clash's bass-heavy party. For more information or tickets head over to
