Check out this new track here and see why we’re so excited to be along for the ride as Duskus reveals new music and tours the west coast this December. We spoke to Duskus about his newest single, his journey as an artist, and his upcoming tour. Check it out below!
“Longtime” is an amazing track that really shows your poise and precision of production, what’s the story or inspiration behind it?
This is the sort of bridge between my previous music and what is about to come after. As you can hear this is my second more “housey” song.
Rumor has it that we can expect a lot of new material in the next few months. Can you give us an idea of what listeners should expect?
The music following this single is something I have never been so excited about before. I’m finally pinpointing the sound I have fantasized about in my head. It’s still Duskus, but it’s new Duskus, It’s futuristic, but also raw. It’s something that I have not heard and reflects my UK inspirations within the US sound.
We know you’re set to go out west on tour this fall. What are you most excited to see, do or experience while on tour?
I’m most excited purely to just hang out with my fellow creators. Finding new inspirations and seeing what random fun this trip will hold. This will be my second time to the US also, but this time I’m much older, so it will be interesting to see what vibes I get there.
Can you tell us more about your relationship with bitbird and how it has influenced you as an artist?
Bitbird has massively influenced Duskus. My sound has definitely attached itsself to bitbird along with my other inspirations. Bitbird has been my family since the beginning and will be forever.
What would you say has been the most defining moment of your career so far?
I think there have been a few defining moments recently. Being able to release my first EP on bitbird was really special to me. Releasing something I was really happy with on a label that suited me perfectly was amazing. Secondly, releasing “forever free” with San. This was one of my favourite tracks I have ever worked on regardless of the release. It feels great to have something you love being shared with the world also. Thirdly, being able to go on tour with San. Nothing I can say about that, it’s just gonna be great.
How would you describe your sound to someone who hasn’t heard you before?
Sad, melodic, sexy, vocal chops.
If you could say anything to your fans out there right now, what would it be?
be cute xo
