Biography

Manchester- based producer Duskus is one of the UK’s brightest rising stars. After being gifted a guitar at age eight, music quickly became Duskus’ greatest passion. Evolving from music lessons, to playing bands and covering some of his favorite artists on acoustic guitar, it wasn’t until his final year of school that electronic music landed on his radar. He was drawn to the world of electronic production due to the possibilities it presented. After making a few beats in FL Studio Duskus was born. The project embodies his wide-spanning influences to create music that is deeply emotional and melodic while still driving and danceable. The rare style allows Duskus to move listeners emotionally and on the dance floor, often within the same song. Fusing his UK roots with American electronic influences has made Duskus a global sensation.

Duskus broke onto the scene in 2015 with his debut single “The First Route”which was bitbird’s first release ever. That same year he launched his own label imprint Kaleido with Subtact. The label has since released three compilations and collaborated with DJ Mag for a live show. The two artists will be rebranding and relaunching the platform with a refined focus in the near future. 2018 saw Duskus ascend to new heights with his cute EP raking in nearly 6 million streams and landing a feature in Spotify’s Viral 50 USA chart. The project also included his first collaboration with San Holo (“Take Me Home”), which paved the way for “forever free,” their follow-up which has garnered 4.5 million streams on Spotify alone. Closing out the stellar year came “Where To Go,” Duskus’ biggest solo release to date. In addition to accumulating over 3 million streams, the work showcased Duskus’ evolution into a house-influenced sound. For the past six months Duskus has been working on his upcoming EP In Retrospect, which is due out later this year on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective.

Duskus has performed at a number venues across the United States, United Kingdom and the Netherlands, including: Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Buku Festival, SW4, Melkweg, Exchange LA, and Bassmnt. He also opened for San Holo on his album1 tour in the US. His music has been supported by some of the industry’s most well-respected artists such as llenium, Tiesto, Kaskade, Don Diablo, What So Not and many more.
