Bio

The Sunshine Coast might be home to the Big Pineapple, but the latest noise looking to make a mark on the map is much louder than a giant bright yellow and green piece of fruit. A heady brew of production smarts and live energy, THE MANK’s five piece crew is creating a flavour that is a soul soaked mixed bag of big beats from the vinyl jungle and real song-craft… a soulful mix of electronica, hip hop, funk, reggae and down-beat. Though trying to genre define THE MANK is like trying to tell the difference between fructose and glucose (either way it’s all damn good). Mellow as a beer before noon, and bold as sunglasses at night, THE MANK are pushing it to the edge. THE MANK, a lazy life of sunny Sundays without the guilt…it makes you feel so good!

I was sold when you guys dropped Mr Bossman and this is a worthy follow-up. The red-eyed soul vibe is nice but it's the almost dubstep production that really kills.

Mr Boinkin Mankin out another deep textured beat. Nice work Mesta on the 9-5 lyrics.
