Two years post the launch of their groundbreaking album “Dark,” where they redefined the UK Garage genre, Antwerp’s sensation KRANKk is back with a captivating new single, ‘Into My Home’. This track, set to be released under the esteemed electronic label cloudshaper, boasts the vocal talents of the renowned Yann Gaudeuille.
KRANKk, consisting of the talented trio – Aram Abgaryan on the keys, Thomas Geysen behind the drums, and Willem Heylen showcasing his prowess on the guitar and electronics – is known for their innovative takes on classic genres. This time, they’re delving deep into the world of drum and bass. Drawing inspiration from the genre’s core – rapid breakbeats, intense bass rhythms, formidable reese’s, and harmonious melodies – they craft it into their signature style.
Their chart-topping singles “Crazy” (2019), “Don’t Forget” (2020), and “Aftermath” (2021) secured spots in the acclaimed Flemish Ultratop charts. Their revolutionary audio performance, featured at Pukkelpop in 2022 and 2023, transformed The Booth stage into an all-encompassing 360° audiovisual experience, immersing attendees in a sonic landscape.
As autumn 2023 approaches, KRANKk is gearing up for the launch of their sophomore album ‘Late Nights In Antwerp’. This album promises collaborations with iconic artists like Selah Sue, Yann Gaudeuille, A-F-R-O, Splurgeboys, Logan_olm, Ragga Twins, and more.

Dive into ‘Into My Home’, a rhythmic drum and bass masterpiece co-created by KRANKk and Yann Gaudeuille, who has previously collaborated with Belgian luminaries Coely and Dvtch Norris. This track seamlessly fuses soul-stirring vocals with pulsating rhythms, offering listeners an unforgettable sonic voyage.
KRANKk describes “‘Into My Home’ as a narrative of discovering solace amidst life’s tumultuous waves. It stands as a testament to the unifying power of music.
The production of KRANKk and Yann Gaudeuille is nothing short of exhilarating. It’s a harmonious blend of energetic drum and bass with poignant vocals. While KRANKk’s music feels avant-garde, it reverberates with echoes of legendary acts like Burial or Kode9 + the spaceape.
Lovers of Chase & Status, Andy C, Shy FX, and Skeptical are in for a treat.
Anticipate the album’s grand release in spring 2024.”
