“Drawing from his everyday experiences in Shanghai, Conrank’s release is a sonic standoff between the East and West, with citations of Chinese culture juxtaposed with the emerging producer’s penchant for forward-facing trap and dubstep.”
“Brainwork’ is a collaboration with Australian-based Zeke Beats and it hits in all the right places. 
“A perfect example of this maniacal producer’s East-meets-West style, ‘Gradient’ is jam-packed with unique sound design and bold composition.”
Currently in the midst of an extensive U.S. tour with a recent stop at SXSW, Conrank is set to release his most comprehensive work to date. The UK born, Shanghai based Conrank is a producer/DJ specializing in experimental/futuristic beats infused with traditional aspects of trap/dubstep music. His forthcoming Hemispheres EP is out now on DJ Shadow’s Liquid Amber imprint.

“Hemispheres represents my unique experience as a touring artist, traveling the world and experiencing various cultures and traditional music and as an expat living in China. While the common theme throughout the EP might be heavy 808’s, I urge listeners to ignore genre classifications and delve into the tunes with an open mind.”


Liquid Amber has been on fire in 2016 with dynamic releases from artists like Dj Pound and Noer the Boy but the imminent Conrank EP is something entirely unique on its own. The enigmatic producer’s sound is one-of-a-kind, his style is near impossible to emulate, and the Hemispheres EP is a very strong indicator of who Conrank is as a producer. From the clashing of swords in “Yi By Yi” to the Malaysian percussion in “Gradient,” the energetic funky flow in “Hood Shake,” to legendary Blak Twang’s vocal work in “Lace The Jewels,” Hemispheres showcases the latest Liquid Amber signee’s diverse cultural influences and upbringing throughout the course of his life. All the tracks somehow mesh together to create a formidable selection of tunes from a man who genuinely seeks to provide his fans with an enjoyable, energetic musical experience. From London to Shanghai, Conrank is on a mission to spread his music worldwide and the intergalactic producer is proving once again that he’s truly pushing the boundaries of modernized electronic dance music.
