Henry Ascroft (a.k.a. The Blank) ï¿½ producer, photographer and auditory portrait creator. Heï¿½s 17 years old and his story has just begun. When you listen to his beats youï¿½ll instantly notice the trackï¿½s signature fuzzy, gritty synths. You might think, 'You know, this sounds like Mount Kimbie meets James Blake meets Burial meets some fuzzy hip-hop joint', and youï¿½d be pretty on point. Though, thereï¿½s something more intimate, immediate, about Ashcroftï¿½s production. Itï¿½s unkempt. Itï¿½s unwrapping at the seams. The bass hits and unravels like itï¿½s a baseball thatï¿½s been smacked unconscious out of the stadium. Itï¿½s no surprise the young producer grew up listening to early house records and UK garage tracks, because his music seems like itï¿½s grown from the same mold.
