Sinks is an mc from Melbourne. He has been rapidly rising through the ranks of the hip hop community, gaining widespread recognition for his craft. He was the 2017 recipient of the HILLTOP HOODS APRA initiative. Sinks Prefers to rhyme over sample based production, he cuts through sombre melodies with dystopian poetry detailing the confronting realities that often elude the attention of the populace. Heavily critical, often misanthropic, Sinks’ lyrical ability is unparalleled in an otherwise bland landscape of predictable banality. Sinks brings something raw to the table without sacrificing intellect or poetic license. Sinks has released several records, most recently his 2016 release 'Cold Fury' and 2017 release 'Buy Partisan'. Both records were received warmly 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. Since then he has gone on to release 'Common Ruin' in 2019 which was again critically acclaimed. In 2020 he is back with another sprawling lyrical expanse which doubles down in taking shots at the power structures with 'Terror Australis' an apocalyptic ensemble of meloncholic dystopian flows, wit and tongue in cheek humour. 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), Mobb Deep (USA) Souls Of Mischief (USA), Deltron 3030 (USA), Taskforce (UK), Dialectrix (NSW) and Trem.
