British DJ duo, Dusky, recently released the single "YooHoo," off their latest EP Love Taking Over. Not long after, they debuted the greatest possible video for their 90's inspired song! Remember watching Vh1 as kids? Lines of static all over, color burning, isolated displaced footage, bizarre animation; one second a statue is holding up the earth and the next, the white and black keys of a piano are leading the way to a psychadelic simulated face surrounding a crystal pyramid. None of that made sense, right? That's what makes it all the more exciting!

When Hudson Mohawke and Lunice split up as their entity of TNGHT, many wondered why. Although it was a "mutual break up,” it seemed so radical at the time, being as they had just come off the release of an amazing EP and a huge co-sign from Kanye West.
