“Excuse Me” – Brand New Music Video/Single – Out Now!!

Sup yawl..

ThiNXx + Breathtaking Beats = “Excuse Me”! #‎HarmonyOverHate‬
I hope you’s are doing well… I know it’s been a while since my last update and I apologise for that but my life has gotten a little crazy this year as it does… Had a lot of big plans that have had to be put on hold mainly due to doing damage to my voice at my last show and I’m still recovering from it. These things happen though and I refuse to let it hold me back…

So, without any further delay, I’m pleased to present my brand new “DiY” music video for the official version of “Excuse Me” with none other than Breathtaking Beats on the instrumental!! You may remember me dropping the demo version of this a while back but I really believe this takes it up a notch and I’m quite proud of both the track and the video. If you like it, please share it as far and wide as possible! I know it has a real message which needs to be heard by the masses and I hope you feel the same. Check it out here:

In case you’re curious, the story behind the track goes a little something like this:
“I finished writing this while travelling through the Karroo(WP) around 3 hours before the SA President finally addressed parliament and stated categorically that he would not “pay back the money”. I mean why would he; it’s only more money than most people see in their entire lives and it’s not like South Africans need housing or hospitals at all… right? Not to mention it’s only Tax money and he needed to upgrade his house, so why not? I hope you sensed my sarcasm there as well as the manner in which the president is always able to find the humour in everything he is supposed to care about. This is a protest song and I ask that you share it far and wide in the hope that citizens of South Africa do eventually get a say in their county and can proudly say that their taxes are funding more than just the prevalent corruption that runs rife through the veins of our political system. I know this is not a problem unique to SA but it is where I’m from and I feel it’s extremely important we can the message across, unite and conquer these horrifying evils that occur daily”.

I’ve also made the track available as a free download, right here so you can play it to and share it with as many people as you’d like:

The lyrics are also available here, for those who are interested in a little more insight into my thoughts:

Anyways, I hope you’s dig the track and can appreciate the message and effort thats gone into it. My only hope is that you pass it on and share it with all your people to help me get it across and break these borders that divide us down into little tiny pieces… Brothers, sisters, siblings… Go well, stay well. Peace be with you and all.

As always, thank you soo much for all of your support… it really means the world to me.

Peace, love, respect, light!

“Speechless” – Debut Instrumental Album – Out Now!

Peace people…

So the day has officially arrived!! I proudly present “Speechless”,  my brand new and very first instrumental album available in various formats now via Arcadiac Records (Limited Edition Compact Disc), my own website / Bandcamp (Very Limited Edition Customised Cassette)as well as I-Tunes (digital version) and every other digital outlet available; so, hopefully getting your hands on it will not be an issue. This is the custom cassette tape version via myself:

What..? Speechless you say..? But Why…?

Well… “Speechless” because the world shocks me into submission practically every single day without fail. The news horrifies, people disappoint, nature destroys and yet we’re still here. Every time one thinks humans should have learned from mistakes and surely things can start to get better the cycle continues and history repeats itself relentlessly… day after day, year after year. This project purposely has not a single word, cut or sample to try and relay the emotions that entrap my thoughts daily leaving only the basis of what I’m all about with nothing extra to add or opinion to offer to help lift the mood; because try as I may, I just don’t have the words.Speechless -PSD Filetape copy

It is a purposely bland album designed to intrigue introspect and allow for reflection on the planet as it stands at the moment. Everything is left to the imagination with some serious chillwave and ambient steez which could also be great for just chilling out and listening to some laid back tunes that don’t force themselves upon you but rather just enhance the mood of whatever you’re doing  at the time.

The simply stunning cover art put together by the one and only Jim Baum! I really don’t think it could be any better ♥ Plus he even went one step further and assembled some very limited CD’s for ya!
Grab a jewel case containing “Speechless” on compact disc along with custom artwork and stickers by the man himself!

if you prefer getting your music via I-tunes, this is the direct link:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/speechless/id1037747532

If you have any questions etc. or by some stroke of luck would like to review / feature or do a write-up about the album please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form below…

I really hope  you enjoy the tunes and can relate on some level.
Nothing but the best to you and yours.

Peace, love, respect, light!

New Live Setup – A Starting Point for ThiNXx to Come + #hardrockrising – Help Get Me to Spain!

Hey peeps…

Hope all is well your side… Just a little update.
I recently invested in a new live setup and am currently still in the process of working out how to link it all together and worink seamlessly bu I really think it’s the start of something great and I can’t wait to get back to the studio and figuring it all out…
This is what it looks like for now:
Trakor ThiNXx

As some of you know, I used to be really into the DJ’ing thing but as I got more into emcee’ing and production I lost touch with this element; so, being able to integrate it all is pretty much a dream come true for me. =)

I still need a few things in the future like, a mixer with a working X-fader and direct drive turntables but these will come in due time… I just need to be patient and keep saving all I can.

You can help support my endeavors by buying a CD, merch or a diigital album from my bandcamp page and hopefully I’ll get it all functioning a.s.a.p. https://thinxx.bandcamp.com/

Thanks again for all your support over the years… knowing you have my back keeps pushing me forward more than you’ll ever know. ♥

I’ve also entered in the Hardrock Rising competition; so, if you have a minute I’d apreciate you casting a vote my way… Just click on the link below and click “VOTE”; They might just send me to spain if one or two of you do: http://www.hardrockrising.com/#/4650?artist_id=232550&voting_token=05150bb5dfa43ffe962d2c76a10df9b4

2014 Final Update: Pronoia Mixtape 03 -> The Indie Hip-hop Expo 2014 -> Happy Holidays & Thank YOU!

Hey people…

It’s been an incredible year and if I’m honest, probably the best one so far, musically of course. I have learned a lot, got to meet new and genuinely amazing people, released an album, made a few music videos and even got quite involved in the art side with side and pushing the graff side a bit too. I just really enjoy the elements of hip-hop and try to be involved in as many as possible.
It’s also been pretty heart-breaking at times due to people being people and all that but what I’ve learned is that these things will happen and you can’t let them discourage you from getting what you need to do… done.

I have a lot planned for 2015 but my major goal is to continue to develop my production on Maschine and also do more shows… so, if you’re looking to book me; this would be a good time to do it… Otherwise come along and enjoy the show when we do it indie style.

Yesterday Pronoia released the latest in their series of seriously fresh South African Hip-hop mixtapes and I’m really honoured to be a part of it… so, if you haven’t already; get yourself a copy here:
Pronoia_mixtape03_Cover-copyhttp://www.pronoia.co.za/beats/pronoia-mixtape-03/

Speaking of shows… my next gig is on New Year’s Eve at The Indie Hip-hop Expo 2014 held at Club Zen 293 Fox Street, Arts on Main, Maboneng, Johannesburg and I will be performing alongside some of the best Indie Artists South Africa has to offer and I’m pretty excited about it! Dohiphop.com will also be there with Merch, cd’s, sticker’s etc. so go say hi. They will also have some of my stuff available for sale too and I’ll be around on the day too…
It’s R50 to get in and you get a free cd featuring a lot of the lineup!!!

This is the flyer; really hope to see some of you there!!!

I’d just like to give a huge shout out to Arcadiac Records and all my label-mates for their consistent support and pushing me to be better… Thank you guys; it really means the world to me and I appreciate you more than words can ever say! =)

Also to Justin and I had An Accident Records for the simply stunning and incredibly beautiful cassette tape version of “All by Myself”. It is mainly the reason the album was spotted and chosen for the La Soupe de Son, Top Albums for October 2014!! otherwise I don’t think it would have been seen. I have gained countless new listeners and peers though this release and I’m beyond grateful for the support you’ve given me. So, thank YOU!

To my people, my family, my friends… Thank you for believing in me, inspiring me, pushing me and molding me into the person I am today ♥ ; don’t know where I’d be without you!

Peace & love to my Parents, my bro and new sister in law… Phil G the Knowbody & The Philavibe Family, Ordeal, Peg leg, Waatu, Dozr & Crew, Bodi, Subtrix, Rude Max, Issuez7, Iapetus Records, Mainvein, Kamikaze Picnic, Anti-B, Pronoia, dohiphop, G & G; Truj, Jake, Musta Mind, Pavleisdead, K.O. Promotion & Management, The Meerkat Mob, The Community, The Indie Expo and YOU! Thanks for the backup, advice, beats, promotion, art, support, love and general good vibes. Every single one of you means the world to me…

This is me out for 2014… Have a safe festive season and nothing but the best for the new year! Here’s to stepping forward in 2015.

Peace, love, respect, light!
