Multi-Platinum duo Banx & Ranx have released their new single “Balenciaga” via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, and Polydor France.

Co-produced by Banx & Ranx and Canadian-Dominican producer Real Mind, the dancehall and reggaeton song notes a return to what Banx & Ranx’s signature ECM (Electronic Caribbean Music) sound is rooted in.

Featuring vocals from artistes Konshens and Demarco, “Balenciaga” is slated to be the next anthem.

“Over the years we’ve experimented with many genres, but we’ve always loved playing with the balance of underground club, pop and Caribbean sounds. With ‘Balenciaga’, we’re getting back to that,” say Banx & Ranx.

On teaming up with Konshens and Demarco, Banx & Ranx share that the collaboration came together organically.

“Demarco loved what we did with Sean Paul on his new album, so he reached out about collaborating with us. He loved the beats we sent over and suggested we get Konshens on the track, and, of course, we were down to bring his talent in on the song as well!”

Since signing with Universal Music Canada earlier this year, Banx & Ranx have consistently dropped new music, including three consecutive Top 10 hit singles (“CTRL + ALT + DEL” and “Headphones” with Rêve and “Flowers Need Rain” with Preston Pablo).

They have also collaborated with Cirque de Soleil as musical directors of their show MŪV, and have run dozens of songwriting camps - producing, writing and collaborating with artistes from around the world.

The multi-platinum producers have infused their signature ECM sound into several notable releases this year including Shenseea’s album Alpha, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae Chart, Sean Paul’s album Scorcha which landed him his 10th Billboard-charting album, and a string of hit singles with the breakout Canadian artistes signed to Banx & Ranx’s Montréal-based label 31 East.

Their Platinum Certified single “CTRL + ALT + DEL” with dance-pop artist Rêve became the #1 most-added song at Canadian radio, reached #8 on the Canadian Top 40 radio chart and has accumulated over 52 million streams to date.

Banx & Ranx continued to dominate the airwaves with their follow-up banger, Gold Certified single “Headphones” featuring Rêve, which landed the artistes two of Canada’s most sought-after radio accolades: the iHeartRadio Future Star and the Rogers One to Watch.

The song reached #9 on the Top 40 chart and saw the artistes being crowned YouTube Trending Artist on the Rise. It has also accumulated over 13 million streams.

Their third radio single, “Flowers Need Rain” with singer-songwriter Preston Pablo, has also been certified Platinum, hit #1 on the Canada Discovery Shazam charts, was the #1 most added song on Canadian radio, hit #5 on the Top 40 Canadian radio chart, landed the titles of Stingray’s Trending Track and Rogers One To Watch, and has racked up 26 million streams to date.
