The bleak and rainy streets of North Manchester influence a chilling monologue style performance from Digging for Kanky. The droning bell sound throughout, actually achieved with a single piano note, combined with the rolling bass line and sampled Manchester rain follows suit with the environment in which it was born.

Digging for Kanky commented
: “We’re looking forward to getting this out there for people to see and hear. We feel it’s the perfect way for people to preview our forthcoming EP ‘Body Bags’. It’s dark as ever and we love it. The rain is real Manchester rain and the words are real Manchester life.
Sometimes the best stuff comes out when we just speak without thinking and that’s pretty much what this is. Still here, Still Digging”.

Artist Bio

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.

Ben and Smithy are a duo, combining haunting melodic vocals with hard hitting rap influences and rumbling trip hop style production to create an ominously dark tone.

Being born and growing up in North Manchester, the gritty influence of the northern estates has been the linchpin of the 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.
