Had this on a couple of times at the weekend and really enjoyed it. The flow from start to finish is really well done with no big hitters just beautiful melodic goodness all the way through.

RA: Do you play guitar on your tracks?

Not really yet. I remember trying about a year ago. I hooked up my guitar and was playing over some tunes but it just didn’t suit the tracks. But I’ve been working on some new tracks where I’m hooking up the pitch of the synth to a knob on a MIDI controller and I’m playing live solos. It’s the same way as playing a guitar solo, just that I’m changing the pitch of the note. Modulating it, etc. A lot of the new stuff that I’m working on is me trying to work in a more spontaneous live musicality to it.

Lank – Bounce Back / March 2014

Great set by Lank focusing on the moodier side of progressive house music.

Can you give us some background on yourself, such as where you currently reside and how you got into electronic dance music?

I was around 13-14 when i first showed interest in electronic music. I had an older friend in the athletics team and he gave me a few tapes and the Fasttracker music maker sofware. That’s when i started to dj and write my own little tracks. I collected vinyls which i played in school discos, and dj competitions. I became more and more serious about music and felt that i have to carry on this way. I took my best homemade tracks and moved to Budapest when i was 18. That’s where the gate of possibilities opened for me. In the next 6-7 years i had the chance to play in most clubs in Hungary, many times with famous international artists. Meanwhile more of my tracks were released thanks to some international labels. I finaly got invited abroad. I played more times in Russia, Greece, Germany and the USA. At the moment i live in Budapest with my girlfriend and i spend all my time on music.
