Banx & Ranx
Banx & Ranx are an Electronic Caribbean Music Group and production team. The team was founded in 2014 by Soke (Producer / Artist & Dj ) and KNY Factory (Producer / Artist & DJ) in Montreal Canada. The idea was born with the strong desire to make a hybrid sound between Jamaican music, Pop music elements and Electronic Dance Music. Both founders share a love for the 3 distinct sounds but were never able to perfect the blend before working together. This was what formed Banx & Ranx.
BANX & RANX debuted last year with their track ‘Lit’ which prompted Noisey to state: “Banx & Ranx are one of the predominant and new acts bringing a shade of light to the city. Drake may have put Toronto on the world stage but KNY and Soke are also giving some weight to Montreal’s position as Canada’s other multi-cultural power.”
Their burgeoning reputation was soon extended when they were invited to remix two tracks from the current Gorillaz album ‘Humanz’: ‘Saturnz Barz’ and ‘Let Me Out’, which have since been streamed over 5 million times.
Banx & Ranx also recently remixed David Guetta’s Dirty Sexy Money track featuring Afrojack, Charli XCX and French Montana.
They have since released their latest single with Ella Eyre, featuring Yxng Bane, ‘Answerphone’; which has been tipped as a big record of the summer.
