Tom Edwards, Matt Benyayer and Carlo Anderson together make up the London based production and DJ unit Dark Sky. Having met at music college, Dark Sky formed in 2009 out of a mutual love for the ever evolving London electronic music scene, a love that the trio have always reflected through not only their DJ sets but also their productions, drawing influence from everything from original UK garage through to house, via jungle and disco.
It wasn't long before their forward thinking outlook on production and DJing got noticed and their debut 12" was picked up by the Bristol imprint 'Black Acre.' The release was met by rave reviews which in turn led to remixes for The XX, Stateless, Delooze and more recently Kelis, Alpines and Ben Westbeech. A further EP was signed to the London based indie label 'Pictures Music,' which was heavily supported by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Modeselektor, Jamie of XX fame, Untold and many more. Not long after the legendary label 'Ninja Tune' released 'Leave,' (arguably Dark sky's most powerful tune to date) as part of the label's 20th anniversary celebrations.
Since then, things have gone from strength to strength. With a packed gigging schedule and further releases due on Ninja Tune, Blunted Robots, Black Acre and Strictly Rhythm, 2011 is set to be a very big year for Dark Sky.
