Steadily advancing through the smog and politics of the Chicago music scene, Collin Burdick and Bennett Kohler have worked tirelessly to assert themselves as a legitimate presence and a force to be reckoned with. Whether they are performing at their resident DJ spots at popular Windy City events like Porn & Chicken and The Trap House or hitting the road, Kyral x Banko have stirred up a buzz that is too loud to be overlooked.
Graduates of the University of Illinois with degrees in chemistry and advertising respectably, the two have since garnered support from a number of reputable blogs such as EDM Network, Run The Trap, Fist In The Air, Trap and Bass, Trap Sounds, Nest HQ, Trap Style, Billboard, Your EDM and more, propelling the KxB brand nationwide. Their diverse and hybrid sound fuses their background in hip-hop with genres of future and past and stretches across the spectrum of electronic music. Live rap vocals and a barrage of original bass-heavy music fuel the unrivaled energy of their live performance.
After releasing their debut EP entitled ‘Proper’ via EDM Network in April, they now are representing Quality Goods Records with their most recent release and have an EP planned for release in early 2017. Their music has been recognized by some of the most notable names in the industry like NGHTMRE, HeroBust, Mayhem & Antiserum, Aryay and UZ, who exposed their track 8-Bit to a worldwide audience on BBC Radio1 with Annie Mac. Kyral x Banko continue to add to their repertoire of performances which includes Summer Camp Music Festival and North Coast Music Festival, as well as sharing the stage with artists such as Flux Pavilion, RL Grime, Lana Del Rey UZ, Carnage, Brillz, Figure, Cookie Monsta, Break Science, Branchez, Styles & Complete, Getter, Datsik, LOUDPVCK, Vic Mensa, Bro Safari and many more.
