ConRank has taken his musical influences from the past years and created his own take on the emerging genre that is drumstep . 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, recently being awarded “Best international DJ 2010″ by the people of Taiwan.
