It’s not every day the laid-back fishing town of Jupiter, Florida produces a world class dance music act. Henry Fong, known for his energetic, eclectic, and island influenced sound, went from college student to world touring DJ in a few years. While attending the University of Central Florida, he found his niche promoting some of the college’s first EDM events and DJing weekly club nights. After learning the in’s and out’s of the music industry at the core level as a nightlife promoter, he moved to LA to take his music further.
Henry has since built up an impressive resume of club bangers and remixes that have been supported by the electronic A-list. Official remixes for Calvin Harris, Rihanna, Zedd, Skrillex, DJ Snake and core singles like ‘Drop it Down Low’, ‘Badam’, ‘Stand Up’, ‘Encore’, ‘Wine Dem’, ‘Young Hearts’ have also consistently kept his tunes in the ears of every festival goer.
“So many different talented people came together on one track, we wanted to make something that was multicultural that anyone anywhere could enjoy.” – Henry Fong
Montreal production duo Banx & Ranx are going global. They’re already in-demand as producers, songwriters and remixers. As well as recently linking up with Ella Eyre and Yxng Bane on their hit single Answerphone, they’ve also collaborated with the likes of Charli XCX, French Montana, Afrojack, Gorillaz and contributed production to the Sean Paul x David Guetta x Becky G smash ‘Mad Love’.
“We met Henry at our studio in Montreal last year and connected right away with our compatible personalities and mutual love for Caribbean and electronic music. We played a few demos, jammed a few ideas and we all agreed that ‘Hold Me Down’ was the song we needed to develop. After finishing the production together, we called up Richie Loop and Sophia Ayana to complete the piece and ended up with a perfect match.” – Banx & Ranx.
