Since 2017, the Kiwi producer and songwriter BAYNK has had an incredible few years, with his catalogue sitting at over 100M+ streams, including his most notable hit 'What You Need feat. Nika' and more recently his collaboration with UK vocalist Sinead Harnett on 'Settle'. More impressively BAYNK has been headlining shows across USA, and playing major festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza.
BAYNK has just released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, 'Someone's EP II', following his acclaimed 2017 debut. The seven-track EP showcases his pristine electronic and innovative sounds featuring international talents including Sinéad Harnett, Glades, Martin Luke Brown and Hablot Brown. Alongside the previously released singles 'Water', 'Off Limits' and 'Settle', there are four brand new cuts to enjoy.

"Surefire Banger" - Noisey “electronic adrenaline rush” - HillyDilly “eternal summer vibes” - C-Heads Magazine "a minimal mood board for true romance" - Highsnobiety “a divine mixture of light and shade, the rough with the smooth” - CLASH "shows off the simple 'less-is-more' songwriting...a staple of his output" - Complex
After his amazing performance at Coachella, BAYNK will be embarking on a headline tour throughout five countries from July 4th, playing to crowds across the US, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Towards the end of his run of dates he will be performing at Lollapalooza in Chicago, HARD in Southern California, and the prestigious Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas where he joins Billie Eilish, Zedd and RÜFÜS DU SOL on the line-up.
Born Jock Nowell-Usticke, BAYNK has seen a meteoric rise from sheer obscurity to the brink of breakout in just 2 years, with releases amassing 110MM+ collective plays. His releases are supported by beautiful visuals with collaborator/co-director Spencer Graves (Kendrick Lamar, Lauv), and his immaculate creative vision doesn't end there; Jock is responsible for all art direction and artwork design (which he had shot by Korean photographer LINNNN), art directing his photo shoots (with photographer Eric Kelly), co-directing his live visuals (also with Spencer Graves and Tess Bjiere) and programming all his own lights for his impressive live show.
