Welcoming the fourth instalment of our new ‘Reflections Revisited’ single series, British production duo Dusky present an ethereal, piano-led rework of their 2013 release ‘Mr Man’, originally heard as the standout track on James Grant & Jody Wisternoff’s Anjunadeep 05. 

Asserting themselves as leaders of the UK underground, Dusky have amassed a variety of titles throughout their career, including global headliners, where they have graced the likes of Berlin’s Parorama Bar to London’s famous nightclub Fabric. Since their 2012 breakthrough track ‘Flo Jam’ which saw them signed to Dogmatik, the duo continued to push their sound forward, landing a string of releases on iconic labels such as Anjunadeep and Polydor. Their biggest track ‘Careless’ went down as a cult classic, cementing their place in the scene’s hall of fame. 

Within these formative years, Dusky built up a strong rapport within the Anjunadeep eco-system, releasing their debut album ‘Stick By This, plus a series of EPs and multiple features on Anjunadeep’s annual series, including their 2013 production ‘Mr Man’ on Anjunadeep 05. 

With over 3 million streams on the original, the classically trained duo delve into their more traditional roots, which we have seen glimpses of over the years in the form of stripped back renditions such as ‘Lost In You (Pianopella)’, to present a stunning, moving piano-led rework.

"We have fond memories of making the original version of Mr Man and playing it out in our DJ sets over the years. The track came about from an unlikely pairing between a deep house backing and a piano line inspired by Debussy’s Clair De Lune. 

We’ve been listening to a lot of ambient music recently, and writing a lot too, so with encouragement from the Reflections label team we decided to re-work Mr Man into something beatless. The piano riff came first in the original writing process, so we felt it made sense to take it and completely re-imagine a whole new piano-led piece of music around it."
