Jamie Jones and Lee Foss have started a new record label called Emerald City

This will be the third label from the house pair, following Hot Creations and its Hot Trax offshoot. The imprint will focus more on crossover, vocal-led releases, starting with a two-track outing from New York’s Serge Devant & Damiano featuring singer Camille Safiya. In addition to the title track, “Fearing Love,” the EP features a typically low-slung, club-ready remix from Jones and Foss. The release comes complete with artwork from Peter Nudo. Fearing Love will hit the shelves on April 6th.

Dusky Presents Hits South Beach for Miami Music Week (03/25)


The UK house/techno titans Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell, known to the world as Dusky, return to Miami Music Week with a stunning line-up for their second US Dusky Presents experience – which will constitute their one and only set at WMC. 

Previously taking on legendary UK venues such as London’s Fabric and Manchester’s Warehouse Project, the Dusky Presents parties serve as the perfect peek into the musical minds of one of dance music’s most respected acts. 

Joining Dusky for their Miami special will be an all-star cast of AgoriaDanny DazeJackmasterKink (live)Murk, and Skream, all playing across two rooms at Treehouse – an intimate location that is perfect for the no-frills, early 90s reminiscent UK clubbing atmosphere Dusky emanates. Shying away from the velvet ropes and bottle service programs that litter Miami, Dusky Presents serves as the premiere underground escape for Miami Music Week attendees looking for a low key dance floor to enjoy proper house and techno on.

Dusky arrives in Miami hot on the heels of their second Beatport #1 overall hit, ‘Yoohoo’, released on the pair’s club focused label, 17 Steps. ‘Yoohoo’ follows the duo’s debut release on the label, Love Taking Over EP, and their previous Beatport chart topper ‘Careless’.<

Coinciding with the Miami announcement, Dusky has uploaded a 6 hour-long mix from their last London party at Studio Spaces. Whether or not you will be attending Dusky Presents during MMW, this mix will serve as the perfect channel to the world of Dusky.

The party begins at 10pm on Wednesday March 25, and will go into the early morning hours, concluding at 5am. Tickets can be purchased here
