Dubstep dandy and local bounder, High Rankin is one of the scenes more eccentric artists. His music brims with character and personality that engulfs the listener as well as causing the obvious dance floor riot! He has an excellent moustache and will fight anyone who disagrees.

Biography

High Rankin signed to Underdogs Management in July 2008 and since then has released his lauded EP’s on Herve’s Cheap Thrills label, as well as featuring tracks on Jay Cunning’s new Sub Slayers label. Added to this he achieved a development publishing deal with Bucks and his live performances have become highly in demand across the UK, Europe and Russia. Ever the avid remixer, his remixes for Kevin Rudolf, Missy Eliot, B Real (Cypress Hill), Skunk Anansie, Adam Freeland and Amon Tobin have garnered further acclaim. Additionally, he has achieved regular play listing and guest appearances on Radio 1 and Kiss FM for his own work and recent releases. 2010 sees him return to his true passion – releasing his increasingly diverse music the way he wants. Suicide Dub is his own unique and revolutionary label launching in May 2010.

The next step in the High Rankin story takes the form of this EP entitled: ‘Occupation: Pimp and Gambler’[…]Nothing quite gets as brash as this. Strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride.”
TRASH MENAGERIE

Occupation Pimp And Gambler slots neatly into the 'slo-mo hip hop sample intro drops into crashing bass and breaks' school of dubstep (see also Caspa, Rusko etc) that will have the crowd begging for the rewind. PICADILLY RECORDS

Great EP and I love 'The Tale Of Clarence Baskerville'... I have it in this week's show.

High Rankin really doesn’t need much in the way of introduction. If you’re familiar with his previous work you’ll feel right at home.
CHEMICAL JUMP

This guy’s making some really crazy dubstep, four beat stuff with a really unique twist. He’s out there on his own. HERVE

Super! I'm a big fan of this sound, loving it! Thanks. ZDAR (CASSIUS)

ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! High Rankin hits us with a big cinematic intro thats set to send floors into frenzy once dropping into a low bassline Armageddon. Skream, Benga, & Rusko have all been dropping this and watching clubs explode. ESSENTIAL! TRACKITDOWN.NET

…As you would expect its pure un-adulterated dubstep with a smattering of leftfield humour sneaking into the mix to good effect. WE ARE BLAH BLAH BLAH

High Rankin has been making awesome music lately. His track Sitting in the wet has been one of my absolute favourites in the last couple of months […] it's been on repeat ever since I saw it online. MOOREYA
