Renegade Riddims: Tank Howls


Heavy-weight glamour queen, Tank Howls is exploding onto the scene with her love of Jungle and Drum & Bass. Being schooled in the depths of the dance floors of the late 90s Tank Howls brings you an elegant mix of old and new basslines!  Tank Howls works hard to take listeners on a journey through her selection of tunes, often using four decks to create a sound that incorporates a love of vocal tracks blended with jungle drums and rolling bass lines old and new.

Recently winning DJ competitions with Cre8 DnB, Goodentime festival and Truth Tribe and booked to play with Concrete Junglists in November, Tank Howls is proving her worth as an exciting and versatile Drum & Bass DJ. Hailing from the small – but supremely trendy – town of Frome, Somerset, Tank Howls has cut her teeth on the local scene fully supported by local venue 23 Bath Street.

Also a resident on Goat Shed Radio, Tank hosts a monthly show Music from the Mothership, a Drum & Bass and Jungle music show dedicated solely to showcasing female identifying artists. Here she showcases a wide spectrum of subgenres, with banging mini mixes, as well as chats and giggles, get ready for this to drop on DT the last Friday of the month, 28th October!

Get ready for an artillery bombardment of love, joy, and bangers!

We’re excited to bring you a taste of what Tank Howls can do behind the decks with an epic mix that features music from the likes of Saxxon, Particle, Anais, Bladerunner, Bish, Harriet Jaxxon, Chase & Status, GJ Gaw & Nozz, DJSS, Break, IVY and loads more!

Sum up this mix in 10 words…

A journey through DnB subgenres with a heavy vocal influence

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

‘Mron Bass’ as my husband made it

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

Passion for this music. This mix is the accumulation of months of work, I have blended all my favourite parts of mixes that I have been working over the last year.

Also a mix of subgenres and tracks that span from the 90’s to now.

What have you got coming up? 

In November I am going to play in Bournemouth with Siphon Events and in Cardiff with Concrete Junglists.

When was the last time you actually raved?

Boomtown! After spending many years working in the kids’ field, this year it was not there so I decided to go as a punter. It did not disappoint! My fingers are crossed for a gig there next year.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

I am so proud to be able to share this mix with you guys, I have been mixing for a very long time but it’s only in the last couple of years that I have been ready to put my music out there. Since I first heard Jungle and Drum & Bass at 14 at my first rave this music has become a part of the fabric of my life. It brings me joy and I hope you find that too. Also, the timing just feels right to be dropping this mix with DT as my monthly show Music from the Mothership starts on DT Radio at the end of this month!
