Dusky Relive Their Favorite Wigged Out, Rave-Ready Music Vids

From The Prodigy to Daft Punk, plus a detour to Duskytown.
November 26, 2014, 7:00pm

UK duo Dusky know a thing or two about how to throw a party. They've spent the latter part of this year cavorting around the UK and US on their Next Step tour and will kick off 2015 by playing with Disclosure and Claude VonStroke before hitting BPM and the Bugged Out! Weekender in January.

The house and/or garage team didn't just one day become world-beating partystarters by coincidence, no, they studied those who came before them. Now, in their own words, you can check out their top 5 wigged out, rave-inspired music videos, and then have a peep at their own contribution to all the madness.


Daft Punk - Revolution 909

"This video somehow combines the meditative state-inducing act of watching an industrial production line on TV and a cool NYC squat party that you wish you could have been at. Plus it teaches you how to make tomato sauce for your pasta. Genius."

Aphex Twin - Window Licker

"Directed by Chis Cunningham, this surreal and twisted music video begins in the form of a parody of a rap video from the 90's but then morphs into a dance scene from Michael Jackson's nightmares. Also genius."

The Prodigy - One Love

"Psychedelic tribal animations of dancing men and clip art eagles floating above an Inca city that evoke memories of sitting on the floor of chill out rooms in raves and tripping your nut off. What more could you want from a music video?"

Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar

"Such a simple idea executed in a very tasteful and artistic way. The scenery has been digitally adjusted to work in time with elements of the song, matching the rhythm and pace. It's now impossible to sit on the train and look out of the window without thinking about this video."

The Prodigy - Smack My Bitch Up

"Booze, drugs, sexual deviancy, and banging music. All the elements needed for an amazing music video. But then, oh my god, it's actually a woman! Who would have guessed that? She acts like such a lout in the video we thought it had to be a man! Great twist."

And then….rave student becomes club master, as evidenced by Dusky's brand new vid for "Yoohoo."
