New Drumstep mix: Kongkast # 131 – feat. Conrank (Suicide Dub, Rankadank Records / UK)

Yes Yes! 恭喜發財!! KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!!! Happy New Year of the Rabbits!
Kongkretebass has been away from our HQ to take some well deserved break from it all in January, but we’re BACK! and we’re starting the year with a BANG!

This week on Kongkast, we’re bringing you one of the fast rising names in the drumstep world – Conrank (Suicide Dub, Rankadank Records / UK).

For those who are not familiar with the term “Drumstep”, it is basically half time Drum&Bass, with less drum hits, but usually at similar speed of a Durm&Bass Track.
But because it may have less drum hits, it’ gives the track more space, which can be similar to dubstep – hence: DrumStep.

Conrank hailed from London, currently residing in Shanghai, a dnb/drumstep producer with a fresh sound. With many years involvement in the music industry Conrank knows his onions; he was one of Europe’s top beat-boxers and had his own MTV show.

So far ConRank’s tracks have caught the ears of the likes of Nerm (BBC Radio 1) , Nike and Basher (Proximity Records) picking up various radio plays along the way.

For those who are in Hong Kong on Saturday, 12th February, you can catch Conrank presented by HEAVY Hong Kong @ Backstage Live! Supported by Kongkretebass’ DJ Wash. More information below>>

Hailing from London, currently residing in Shanghai, ConRank is a dnb/drumstep producer with a fresh sound. With many years involvement in the music industry Conrank knows his onions; he was one of Europe’s top beat-boxers and had his own MTV show. ConRank has taken his musical influences from the past years and created his own unique style and sound which more recently has been labelled Drumstep, but sits solidly in the genre of Drum and Bass. Live he pulls those influences into a mashup of Hip-Hop , DnB , Dubstep and Jungle – looped up with his own beats , basslines and tracks to create something energetic and eclectic – a show which is quickly gaining a reputation with clubbers across europe and asia alike.

Conrank recently rocked over 2000 people at UK festival “Secret Garden Party”. In the studio ConRank has released 2 singles and an E.P “State Of Play” on his own label Rankadank. With singles set to drop this year on High Rankin’s highly respected label “Suicide Dub” as well as new UK label “Me+1″ and several remixes on various labels, his productions are starting to make noise with DJs and clubbers alike.

Not content with producing and DJing, he’s also currently working with world no.1 beatboxer Killa Kela on the aptly named project “Kela & ConRank” . So far ConRank’s tracks have caught the ears of the likes of Nerm (BBC Radio 1) , Nike and Basher (Proximity Records) picking up various radio plays along the way. Conrank is coming, step to the drum.
