“The Dark” is an infectious house track, which incorporates the duo’s signature sampling. Bklava’s voice layers over the melody to bring the melody together to create what Obskür dubs their “favorite production we’ve ever worked on”.

“We had always noticed Bklava through playlists and listening to BBC R1 and thought his voice would suit one of our tracks,” they add. “We found out she was up for the project, and after a bit of rewriting, we sent her the lyrics.

“It was the easiest collaboration we’ve ever done. The voices we got back were phenomenal, you honestly can’t fault her work, she’s so sick. It’s been a year of preparation, and to say that we are delighted would be a huge understatement! »
