Bio

Sinks is a young Melbourne based emcee and producer whose passion for crafting music is constrained only by his never-ending energy. Unapologetically blending boom bap production with the odd classic dub to form a sound not often heard in the local scene, Sinks’ work as a beat maker combined with his energetic and thought provoking rhymes ensures he is an artist that both new and old heads can respect and enjoy. From rapid double times to a slower drawl Sinks has drawn attention from some of the bigger names in the Hip Hop scene who have name checked him as the next emcee to watch.

“An upcoming rapper to look out for” - DJ Sheriff Rosco
“A beast on the mic” - Fatty Phew

The 2013 release of solo EP “Prolifix” to immediate critical acclaim was quickly followed by the highly anticipated debut LP “Backlash”. Both records were warmly received by Hip Hop heads and the broader musical community alike, receiving regular national airplay across community and independent radio stations such as Triple J, PBS and RRR.

“The touch of dub and a spot-on delivery makes this a standout. 4 stars” - Richard Kingsmill, Triple J

“Love the dub flavour of this. Really tight flow too. Nice work. 3 stars” - Dom Allessio, Triple J

On the stage Sinks has been hand picked to support some of the most respected names in international and Australian Hip Hop with highlights such as Action Bronson (USA), Coolio (USA) Taskforce (UK), Dialectrix (NSW), and Trem. The Sinks live show is ever expanding with the recent addition of a live drummer and feature hypes and rhymes from label associate Mol One. 2014 sees Sinks working on his sophomore LP and taking the live show to audiences across Australia.
