Meet Jock Nowell-Usticke, the Kiwi chemical engineering graduate turned HypeMachine-charting producer, festival performer, and MATOMA opener who rode the bedroom producer wave to success in a matter of two years. Jock’s career under the BAYNK moniker shows the infinite possibilities for DJs in the digital age, enjoying a steady incline since his first-ever release, “Sundae,” ended up on HillyDilly and caught the attention of St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival promoter Mark Kneebone. After Kneebone booked BAYNK’s first-ever live show at the hometown New Zealand festival, he’s continued performing live across North America and New Zealand ever since. His soundscape surfs between future bass and tropical house, bringing the beaches of New Zealand directly to your speakers with live instrumentation atop catchy summery synths.
