Duskus has remained an important artist behind the bitbird label ever since its inception. Never one to let his sound grow stale, the London-based producer has played an important role in bringing the label to the forefront of innovation, with countless releases under his belt, both individual and with fellow label-mates, that have continuously pushed the boundaries of easy-listening electronic music. Coming off a collaboration with Taska Black, Duskus now returns to the esteemed imprint to deliver the first single from his upcoming EP, ‘Rising.’
The lighthearted signature combining house with future bass that Duskus has mastered over the years is still very present throughout ‘Rising,’ but there is an innate sense of evolution and growth in his sound that shines even brighter. “The inspiration behind this single for me was to try and create something unique, but still listenable. Something that people can enjoy and understand even though it’s something new. When working on this EP, a lot of my focus was more into sound design which is something new to me. I realized that the sound of something can actually evoke emotion, and I wanted to focus as much attention on this as I could,” Duskus shares about his new direction. ‘Rising’ is the perfect pairing of angelic, catchy vocals and fresh future bounce, aptly suited for the coming summer.
