Let's be honest, EDM has been invaded by barely legal Tumblr addicts in the past couple years making it hella hard to stand out amongst the crowd. Krunk! is one of the dudes who has managed to ride the tip of the wave, commanding the ears and eyes of DJs across the planet. Between mixing and touring the Wild Nights and Clubbers Guide to 2015, the Adelaide native has been raising hands and heartbeats across Australia's biggest night spots, headlining shows at Billboards, HQ Complex, Club Liv, Gilligans, and Wah Wah Lounge as well as holding down support sets at Future Music Festival and Stereosonic.
Krunk! has done a stellar job at developing his now trademark musical style; a combination of melodic breakdowns and pace maker shattering drops, forming something post-Melbourne and festival ready for big rooms with big appetites. He's also been handpicked to bring the ruckus to remixes for the likes of Uberjakd, Bombs Away, The Twins, Sean Finn, Mr Wilson, Rave Radio, Havana Brown and DJ's From Mars. The results are clear across the ARIA & Beatport Top 40 charts and especially in DJ City’s Chuckie remix comp which saw Krunk! take out the international honours with his take on Chuckie’s Makin' Papers record. There's no wonder Krunk! has quickly earned a rep as the secret weapon in every remix pack!
With a to-be-revealed collaboration with Uberjak'd signed to...well...we can't say just yet, but you definitely know 'em, plus a starting place in Australia's foremost EDM Talent Agency, Krunk! is ready to conquer the known world in 2015, just like his much-famed Macedonian forefathers.
We spoke to Krunk! before he headed on the Clubbers Guide to 2015 tour with Glover and he gifted us with a post midnight mix to get the crowd vibing.
