Bio

The alias of electronic musician and producer Jock Nowell-Usticke. The recent engineering-graduate is fresh from playing his first ever live show at Laneway Festival, showcasing his new breed of tropically soaked, downbeat electronica to critical acclaim. New Zealand bred, Nowell-Usticke stumbled across the production software Ableton during university in 2014 when he was forced to mix music for his university band on his computer when studio time became too expensive. BAYNK released his first laid-back, beachy, original track “Sundae” in 2015 & then lost his laptop along with the rest of his music. He found some months later that the track had found it’s way to prominence through the blogosphere and landed him a spot at Laneway Fest. He has since been busy directing music videos for his latest singles whilst building up his discography

one more cocktail delivered to my recliner sun lounge and this would ramp right up, but i like the restraint. it's a 3pm, not a 7pm poolside number.
