If you were wondering where dubstep was going next, look no further than Taiki and NUlight. The duo recently signed to Benga Beats, Sin City Recordings, Subway Recordings, and Biscuit Factory Records, and consists of Erka Kurosaki (Taiki) and Rowan Harrington (NUlight). They really have a knack for the dark and moody, spine-tingling sound a lot of old school fans of the genre miss. If you havenâ€™t heard their tunes yet, brace yourself.
Taiki and NUlight released their free EP in November and itâ€™s definitely something youâ€™ll wanna take a listen to. All four tracks are absolute bangers but my personal favorite is ‘Dot and Dash’. Download the zipped EP straight from them here.
The duo have been getting a lot of attention in the dubstep scene. Skream and Benga dropped Taiki and NUlightâ€™s ‘Dirty Habbit’ during the September In New DJs We Trust show, and during their Hard Haunted Mansion set in October. It is suchhhhh a tune. Itâ€™s getting released on Benga Beats in the coming future and Iâ€™ve been itching for it since I first heard it.

More after the jump!
Here is their remix of Ms. Dynamiteâ€™s ‘What You Talkin About’. This tune will make your stomach lurch.

Today, their dubplate ‘Grotesque’ was released as part of a free EP by Biscuit Factory Recordings. The title really does do it justice.
