Carlos Zentella, better known as Lank, has been a driving force in the breaks and bass music scenes across the Southwest corner of the US for close to two decades. This San Diego native came on the scene in 1997 with a blistering attack of electro breaks, drum & bass, house and eventually dubstep. Landing in New Mexico in 2001, he among others, has become the driving force behind broken beat music in the area, bringing national and international breaks and dubstep headliners to the hungry denizens of the desert Southwest.
Lank has built a reputable following in the southwest of America with unparalleled dance floor control, impeccable taste, and an ear for the underground, having shared the stage with such notable artists as Bad Company, Noisia, Dieselboy, Excision, 12th Planet, and Emalkay, among a slew of others.
In 2010, Lank along with Sluggo, started the digital imprint Ultragore Recordings. Working to bring the heaviest dubstep artists out there to the international stage, the label released tunes from a slew of underground artists as well as some of the biggest names in dubstep including Borgore, Bare, Liquid Stranger, Sluggo, and MC Messinian. Fans across the US and worldwide snatched up each release and the label tore up the charts, garnering the Best Dubstep Label award from Symphonic Distribution in 2010.
In 2013 Lank started his own digital imprint Multikill Recordings, with over 100 releases under its belt by 2018 including multiple number one’s and top tens on Beatport. In 2014 Multikill Recordings won Symphonic Distribution’s coveted Label of the Year Award.
In 2018 Lank and Tankman licensed their track “The Fek” to Rainbow Studios for the video game ATV vs MX ALL OUT on PS4 and Xbox. In early 2019 Lank and Hollow Graphik did a Breaks remix of Ritual Of Ether’s Hip Hop track “Left For Dead”. There was also a Dubstep remix by Code: Pandorum all released on Lank’s imprint Multikill Recordings and all three hit #1 in their respective genres on Beatport. Be on the lookout for more releases from Lank and Multikill Recordings as this bass junkie continues to drop bombs in 2019 and beyond.
