OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Planky is a music producer and DJ, hailing from Hampshire in the South of England, whose musical roots stem from the UK garage scene back in 2002. He was originally part of a crew called The Looney Toon Kru (L.T.K), who played shows across Southern England, supporting major acts like The Dreem Teem, Pied Piper & The Masters Of Ceremony and DJ Luck & Mc Neat. But while he explored and experimented within various genres, it was hip hop that transformed into his true passion. Having been influenced by legendary artists such as The Wu-Tang Clan, Jurassic 5, J-Dilla, Jazzy Jeff and DJ Premier, Planky began producing with an open mind in terms of inspiration from other genres - something that has been a staple part of hip hop since its inception. He would draw on the sounds of blues, soul and Motown, which he heard growing up as a child, as well as bands like Rage Against The Machine, Limp Bizkit and Metallica for some of his more heavier creations.
In around 2008 Planky joined forces with DnB producer, Zen, and the pair began collaborating on new tracks. The first-Your Shout - was released in June 2009 on Grid Recordings and was part of Zen's Land Of The Giants EP. Next came, Show Me The Love, which was released on Zen's label, Flip Audio, in October the following year. After that Planky began concentrating on getting his studio off the ground, as well as building up his knowledge of new software, advancing his scratching skills, playing the guitar and returning to his drum kit after a 10-year hiatus.
That return to the drums led to plenty of new career opportunities, as Planky upped the levels of his production with a number of collaborations alongside some legends within the UK and beyond. The most notable of those included his 2020 boom bap single, Today's Life, which featured Chester P, Micall Parknsun and Carasel, as well the more recent Soul Plane, which saw him take his production into new territory, with the assistance of Harry Shotta, PAV4N and Dynamite MC. The magic they found together on Soul Plane is soon to be rediscovered on Adrenaline Rider, while Planky, Shotta and Dynamite have also been working on a number of other tracks together, which are set for an early 2022 release.
There will also be collaborations from further afield, as Planky sets his sights on the next generation of Wu Tang MCs. Tracks with iNTELL and Pxwer, the sons of U-God and Method Man respectively, are already in the stash, and there is also another stateside partnership with Akil the MC of Jurassic 5 fame.
