North Manchester Trip Hop duo, Digging for Kanky, proudly announce the forthcoming release of single ‘Body Bags‘ on the 24th of March 2023, with a Music Video following on the 31st.

Digging for Kanky is a duo from Manchester, United Kingdom, combining haunting melodic vocals with hard hitting rap influences and rumbling trip hop style production to create an ominously dark tone. The name ‘Digging for Kanky’ comes from an urban myth in North Manchester involving a local grave robber named ‘Old Kanky’ in the 1800’s.

Being born and growing up in North Manchester, the gritty influence of the northern estates has been the linchpin of their sound. Music has always been apart of life for both Ben and Smithy. With Ben building a career within the events industry and Smithy working daily on community music projects with the under privileged youth on the local estate, music has always been close to both.

After years of bedroom production, and dabbling in other bands and projects casually. 2019 saw the childhood friends connect again and Digging for Kanky was born.

The duo have been hard at work in the studio ever since, crafting a unique sound that has been receiving a lot of attention from tastemakers in the industry. With upcoming releases on SONO Music and a string of shows lined up for the summer, Digging for Kanky are looking to make their mark on the music world.

Digging for Kanky commented: “What can I say? We’re as dark as you get. Another tale from the crypt.”
