26-year old British producer Duskus is a DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist fast on-the-rise. He spent over a decade playing both piano and the guitar – first classical and later acoustic – after picking up his first at just seven years old; training that helped foster a life-long passion for music-making.

Heavily influenced by visual outdoor elements – “it could be just a view from a field or a photo of a plant I’ve seen on Instagram”, Duskus’ vision is grounded in the world around him; the here and now. His sound meshes together elements of classic 4×4 house, blood-and-thunder kicks and rich melodies. He credits electronic artists like Floating Points, Ross From Friends, Tom VR and Joy Orbison with playing into those ideas, but also looks further afield to folk and country music, too. “I listen to an artist called Arthur Russell religiously”, he says. “It’s nothing to do with electronic music, but it’s nice to listen to music outside of the lane I’m working in sometimes.”

His single “Let Go” landed him on the Spotify Viral 50 in The UK, Ireland, Australia & New Zealand and laid the foundation for latest EP, ‘Healers Vol.1’, – music inspired by his love for the outdoors that he hopes will “help take people away from their four walls” and into nature – Duskus feels on the cusp of something big. “It’s a concept that’s gonna take time to fully figure out”, he explains, “but I feel like it’ll be at the heart of the evolution of each EP, and how I connect those dots.”
