DJ to Watch: Conrank

What’s a FKNG Conrank, you ask? It’s something we can’t explain with words as well as we can explain with an album. UK-born and bred DJ and producer, Conrank, has quickly established himself as one of bass music’s most innovative voices and his latest collection of work entitled What’s a FKNG Conrank, tells you everything you need to know about him and his reason for being today’s DJ To Watch.

To know Conrank is to know his past. Many a DJs who we proclaim that you should “watch” usually don’t have the resume that Conrank flexes. He got into the scene initially as a beat-boxer in London during the creative peak of the UK grime & hip-hop scene. After touring Europe with neighborhood friend and fellow beat-boxer Killa Kela, Conrank switched gears to track production towards the end of the decade; finding his feet as an artist and writing music for commercial campaigns (Levi’s, etc). After spending years as a bedroom laptop producer he finally emerged as a full-fledged DJ in 2010 with his first live performance, wowing a crowd of thousands at London’s infamous ‘Secret Garden Party’. Following successes include partnering with bass god, Bassnectar, is highly regarded in China a “one of the best”, and has recieevd steady track support by renowned DJs like A-Trak, Gaslamp Killer, DJ Craze, Buku, and more.
