Jaenga x Conrank Release New Single ‘Tell Man What’ Feat. Yizzy
Bass artist Jaenga had a clear philosophy from day one, music should not be limited by industry standards or genre boundaries. Erupting onto the scene in 2015, Jaenga distinguished himself in the festival circuit early, with his signature purple school bus and electrifying bass sounds. Jaenga and the “renegade bus” are renowned for hosting some of the biggest names in the electronic scene, attracting top talent such as Griz, Space Jesus, Eprom, Slushii, and Buku with its collaborative environment and creative energy. Joining the lineup of festivals such as ElectricForest, and Camp Bisco, he has defined his live shows by immersing audiences in the world of Jaenga. A bass purist with retro sensibilities, Jaenga integrates live guitar, drums, or even just a pair of CDJs into his experiential performances. His musical output includes three EPs which feature fan favorites like “Gravity,” “Feel So Good,” and most recently, “Wildfire.”
London-based beat-boxer-turned-DJ/producer Conrank has deservedly established himself as one of bass music’s most innovative voices. Spending years as a globe-trotting musician residing in Shanghai, LA and Europe, Conrank has earned the reputation of tearing up any stage or club he visits with his uncompromising brand of dubstep, grime and drum n’ bass. With remixes for The Prodigy, G Jones and Zeds Dead as well as original track collaborations with Bassnectar, Space Jesus, Bleep Bloop, Yheti and DJ Shadow, Conrank’s sound has evolved and incorporated a varied range of styles along the way. His landmark EP ‘Distorted Method’, Conrank has built a fearsome reputation for delivering relentless bass line bangers. With “Drum in Time,” his collaboration with Dirt Monkey “Level 8” and “Tonk Sound,” each new release showcases his distinctive and ever-developing sound.
Today, September 10th Jaenga and Conrank release their high-octane cross-genre collaboration with popular London-based Grime artist Yizzy who is well known as one of the most exciting up and coming grime artists in London. Starting in 2018 he was spotlighted in one to watch features by The Fader, Clash & Complex, as well as Sian Anderson’s ‘Alternative List’ for 1Xtra. His debut EP This Is Life and previous releases “Do You Wanna” and “Steppin” have received wide critical acclaim from the likes of Mass Appeal, The Guardian, Dummy, and many more. Most recently, his unreleased song “Only One” was placed in EA Sports’ UFC 4 video game. Their collaboration, “Tell Man What,” serves as Jaenga’s WAKAAN debut and a WAKAAN follow up for Conrank and incorporates elements of dubstep, trap, and grime as Yizzy’s upbeat, signature vocal delivery resides on a futuristic and dynamic soundbed provided by Jaenga and Conrank.
