Having taken a little break from our mix series over the festive season we're back up and running. What a way to start the new year. London new boys Dark Sky bring us this colourful selection of tunes oozing talent from themselves whilst also keeping the other tracks intertwined to a high level. Their style fuses garage with the deeper side of Dubstep leaving us with tight beats and warm subby bass.
However, I shouldn't say they're new because that wouldn't be true. 2009 was an exciting year for two of the three. You may be familiar with The Boogaloo Crew already. This is their side project. They've dragged in another producer and things are kicking off. Another example of people seeing where the sound is heading and taking full advantage. While on the subject of Boogaloo - we'd like to congratulate them on their forthcoming release on Trouble & Bass. 'Days Go By' and 'Calling All Dancers' (which are in a couple of our mixes if you haven't heard them) will feature on 'Heavy Bass Champions of the World: Vol 2'. Big!
