The Lank consisting of Geswint and Flethcer Jack met way back in the 9th Grade when they were placed in the same computer classroom. Instead of mastering excel and getting A’s, they found themselves spending the hour period downloading one track per lesson. “15 years ago it took at least one hour to download a 15MB song, so we made sure it was an absolute bomb, and that’s when we realised that we shared the same passion for this electronic sounds they called house music, right then and there we decided to form a duo called The Lank, it suited us back then, because we were both very Lanky, skinny boys.” A decade later The Lank are finally making moves in the industry. “It was all about timing, in life, everything happens at the right time, we both took our time to find what we truly love, if we started djing in clubs at 16 I doubt we’d be here right now.” Geswint brings the grey, Fletcher Jack adds the colour and when they combine, you find yourself on an unforgettable musical journey.
