Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman, a production/DJ combo born in London, are known as Dusky. Dusky first gained popularity during the UK's house revival, but since then, they've developed a unique, varied sound that incorporates elements of ambient, progressive house, jazz, hardcore, Detroit techno and other more experimental genres.
The pair gained recognition for their sophisticated, club-ready hits after releasing their breakthrough single "Flo Jam." These tracks include their Beatport #1 "Careless," the darker "Love Taking Over," the piano house tribute "Yoohoo," and the multi-textured blissful "Skin Deep." With their massive 'Outer' LP, they solidified their status as a cult production force. Two of their tracks, 'Ingrid Is A Hybrid' (a sample-heavy electronica mutation) and 'Sort It Out Sharon' (a techno/grime fusion including Wiley cooperation), both set new standards in the genre.
Loved equally for their thoughtful, carefully curated DJ sets, the pair has toured widely since then, appearing on festival stages all over the world and at renowned locations including London's Fabric, Berlin's Panorama Bar and Ibiza's DC10.
As label proprietors, they have released progressive house and techno under their 17 Steps brand by artists like Christian Piers, Bwana, Velvit, Trevino, and Lo Shea. As the label grows, Dusky keeps up their multidisciplinary work while staying deeply anchored in the dance music scene that has influenced them since their early years of going out to clubs all over London as teenagers..

The final Dusky booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Dusky charge for an event. An example fee to book Dusky is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Dusky for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Dusky agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Dusky, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Dusky booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Dusky, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
