‘The Dark’ is an infectious house tune, which incorporates the duo’s signature sampling. Bklava’s vocals layer over the melody to bring the tune together in order to create what Obskür dub their “favourite production we’ve ever worked on”.

“We’d always noticed Bklava through playlists and listening to BBC R1 and thought her vocals would suit one of our tracks,” they add. “We found out that she was game for the project, and after a bit of re-writing, we fired the lyrics over to her.

“It was the easiest collaboration we’ve ever done. The vocals we got back were phenomenal, you honestly can’t fault her work she is just so sick. It’s been a year in the making, and to say we’re excited would be a massive understatement!”

Obskür have been honing their sound over recent years, by combining hard 909s with hip-hop samples and raw elements, too. They’ve performed these sounds out at parties such as Tokyo World, Detonate and The Warehouse Project.

‘The Dark’ follows on from their EP ‘Pure Evil’, released on Shall Not Fade. You can buy or stream the tune now - check it out here.
