ThiNXx is an independent hip hop artist from Johannesburg, South Africa and has been actively involved in various genres of music since around 1997 including punk bands, instrumental hiphop groups and even as a house DJ under the alias “Fly,” attaining various residencies across Johannesburg before leaving for the U.K. in 2004 where he played at various bars and clubs. He returned South Africa in May 2006 with a resolve to enter the world of hip hop music. He has since released numerous projects, mixtapes and singles working alongside artists from around the world including Phil G the Knowbody(US), Waatu Music(CAN), Shep on Bass(of Wrists, UK), Mainvein(JHB) Immaculate Mentality(JHB)and Allison Truj(US). He has also performed at various local shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town including Splash Jam, Babylon, Wordplay, The Indie Hip-hop Expo as well as a few others sharing stages with the likes of Sage Francis, Hymphatic Thabs, Yugen Blakrok, Ewok, Fifi the Rai Blaster, Power of Thought & Slege Lee to name a few. In 2013 ThiNXx was featured on various projects and compilations including “Moving with the Tymez” (March) a compilation of different sounds and styles from hiphop artists all over the world put together by Issuez7(UK); “Issuez7 & Waatu are Agent Provocateur”, (June) alongside Passive65ive(UK), Hobs Sputnik(US),Tank Wonderful(US), Duke01 and scratches by DJ Man-One(UK) and also in “Patient Zero” (June) an international collaboration group between Canadian producer Waatu Music and UK Bassist Shep on Bass where he drops the lyrics on their debut single “Ballpoint Magician” from the “Scarecrow Tactics” EP which also features the likes of Turtle Handz (US), Tusken Coalition (UK) & Dyzlexic (AUS). He then also featured on another compilation by Issuez7 called “The Microphone Monologuez” alongside artists like Billy Woods, Atari Blitzkrieg, C Rayz Walz, Tame One, Masai Bey and many more. The track featured is a remix for his track “Doesn’t Matter, Huh??” put together by Patient Zero. In October 2013, ThiNXx joined Arcadiac Records, a Michigan based collaborative alongside Eager Maniacs, Fast Tactics (FASTAX), Gerko, Onboard Balloon, Petty Tyrants, The Sisu Kid & Walking With Balance to re-release his 2012 project “Sentiments to Cinders” with an all new cover and lyrics to suite. In November 2013, ThiNXx was also chosen as a finalist in the Strange Famous Records, No Bird Sing – “Don’t Think” remix contest up against various producers from all over the planet. In 2014 ThiNXx released his debut album, a self-produced, multi-themed offering of tracks crossed with instrumentals titled “All By Myself”; this would also be his first official release on Arcadiac Records! He then also featured on the UsNatives instrumental compilation “Oddiology” alongside various producers from all over the world with his track “Sunny Day Turns Night”. On 31 October 2014, ThiNXx released a limited edition cassette tape version of his “All by Myself” album via I had An Accident Records and it was now officially available in various countries around the globe including US, France and Japan. In August 2015, ThiNXx performed alongside Sage Francis at Iron Tusk(JHB) as the part of the South African leg of his “Going Through Hell 2015” world tour. He was also the opening DJ for this event. In September 2015, ThiNXx released his debut instrumental album called "Speechless", again on Arcadiac Records. This album was purposely bland and reflective to try relay his sentiments toward the modern world as he saw it and how it made him feel, with particular focus on the human race and how people acted toward each other. During the same month he released a demo track called “Excuse Me” aimed directly at the S.A president and corruption that he felt running rife through the very core of the South African government. ThiNXx also runs an NGO website called “ do hiphop.com”, trying to bring indie hip hop artists and general awareness to people across the globe, is an artist concerned with hip-hop and world activism, and is a firm believer that music and artists can change the world. He is currently working on a number of projects and collaborations due to release in the not-too-distant future. ThiNXx is available for interviews and guest appearances upon request and his website https://thinxx.org/ is regularly updated for those looking for more information.

This year I will be riding the 947 Cycle Challenge for this great cause! Help me raise some funds and change some lives for the better by making a donation today… Here are the full project details and how you can help:Screenshot 2016-08-22 13.52.49
Donate via GivenGain

Help me raise funds toward mobilising people with bicycles can change lives through creating access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.

“Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to carry on”, “to progress”, “to move forward”. Qhubeka believes that mobilising people with bicycles can change lives through creating access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka believes that #BicyclesChangeLives too. Qhubeka isn’t an afterthought, it is the reason we clip in and ride, the incentive to go out and train, and our motivation to win race”…
