It began as a chord-less trio in darkest Wales comprising of sax, double bass and drums, then guitar and piano appeared. Jazz styles disappeared and heavy jams with collective improvising took its place. The piano morphed into different synthesisers and tape loops and the double bass cracked open to reveal its electric counter part. Standard chord progression melted away to reveal the dark minimalist progressive rock band that is Duski.
‘A refreshing taste of ambient, grooved out jazz…REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT’
– Bobby Colcombe, Freshonthenet.
‘Progressive Jazz at its best’
‘Duski’s set shows originality, quality and productive collaboration’
– Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal.
Duski are pushing forward off the back of their magnificent second album Make A Wish last year. They melt jazz tones into dark minimalist prog rock, creating soundscapes worthy of a David Lynch film. It’s no surprise, then, that Twin Peaks is a big influence on the group, along with Miles Davis and David Bowie, and they’re sure to transport us to magical, mysterious worlds.
Support comes from astounding instrumental guitarist Toby Hay who released Duski’s first album through his own Cambrian Records.
