IAMYANK Live Band (HU)
Iamyank is a multi-instrumentalist producer / songwriter who keeps building up memorable scenes around the audience with futuristic synths, spacey guitar and dirty drums on the edge of instrumental and electronic music. In 2011, after 10 years of being a drummer in different bands he wanted to extend the usual methods of songwriting and soundscapes to catch specific moods more precisely. After finishing imPro Budapest School of Music Technology, he has met the main characters of the Budapest underground music scene and started to make DJ sets while figuring out what sounds, genres, styles fit better to his own musical vision. After playing at all the main local clubs and at the biggest Hungarian festivals (Sziget, Volt, Balaton Sound), making remixes for well known Hungarian bands he started working on his first release. The first EP, titled ‘Cold Summer’, was released in 2013 and it got positive reviews from both the audience and critics in Hungary. His fan base started to grow anticipating following releases, so he spent more time on writing songs and released 2 more EP-s in 2014 titled ‘City of Nobody’ and ‘Last Song’. All of them got featured on the biggest Hungarian music sites and got positive feedback as well. At this point, he has already started building up his live performance show which later gave him the chance to share stage with his biggest inspirations, such as: Mount Kimbie, Caribou, Nosaj Thing, Om Unit, Synkro, Shigeto etc. In the middle of the year 2014, he started a collaboration with POSSIBLE GAMES and together they worked on an adventure game for his next release. In 2016 May 4th, iamyank’s 11 track concept LP ‘Hiraeth’ was released by Selected Sounds Label with full support of local press. After the succesful launchparty iamyank Live Band started to touring with the new set.
