You’d be forgiven for thinking KRANKk is from the UK. Their blend of Grimey basslines, Burial-inspired atmospherics, and future garage beats sound like they’ve been brewed up in a London lock-off. Really, though, they’re from Antwerp – and they’ve added a mad twist in that they play their two-step rhythms with live instrumentation. Live it’s a cannonball on speed, it is infectiously exciting, danceable and super virtuoso. Don’t sleep on this.
