#BicyclesChangeLives: Qhubeka 947 Cycle Challenge 2016

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”…

Peace, love, respect, light!

“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:
http://genius.com/Thinxx-excuse-me-lyrics

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!

2015: The Show of my Lifetime + Some News for Ya!

Peace People.

Hope you’re all doing well… Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the lack of updates; especially since this has turned out to be one of the most important years of my life as a musician and it’s you guys that have pushed me to this point, so, Thank you!
2015-07-26 10.06.26-2If you didn’t hear about it; last month, on the 6th of August I had the honour of opening for one of my greatest mentors in music: the one and only Sage Francis. I’m completely humbled by the whole experience and getting to meet the man himself! What an amazing artist and all round human being!
2015-08-06 16.13.20Thanks Uncle Sage. Getting to see you live has breathed new life into my art and I really learned so much from what you did on that stage; simply incredible! So, again; I apologize for not actually announcing this performance: I just had a really busy few weeks leading up to the event. Hopefully some of you did make it out on the night and got to see the show.
2015-08-06 21.44.55-2On the night itself; I got to break away from the norm by doing the whole DJ thing (something I’ve been doing quite a bit of recently) and then for the 30 minutes prior to the acts I dropped cuts alongside the homie Immaculate Mentality killing the live drumming on Maschine. This was too much fun and I really feel we did it some justice.
11821918_1027919690560373_214412977_n(1)The show was hosted by Safari of The Articulate Artists and he did an amazing job with the announcements and interacting with the crowd. Big ups! Really dope to see him up on that stage again and more so getting to see him on a new track. The local line-up consisted of some serious talent from the JHB indie scene and I must say it’s a huge privilege to be able to get up there and bear my soul alongside them all. To S!CK, Soothsayers, Slege Lee, Power of Thought, Yugen Blakrok , Tha Cutt, Exerpt and of course Sage, and then to the organisers dohiphop.com, Beneath the Surface, Lalelani Studios, Caps and Cans and TheFilmGuys; thank you for making this a reality! Never did I ever think this would happen or even be possible but it did and we made it so. Mad Respect all round!
11893952_1613028888969965_1776061747183282137_oAlso, to Iron Tusk; dope sound, venue, service… Really looking forward to more shows in the future.
2015-07-28 17.52.37Thank you soo much to all of you who checked out my performance; You guys totally outdid yourselves. I mean, to look up and see so many of you staring back at me… well, I have no words.
You really make this all worth while ♥
2015-07-27 15.55.21Anyways… I won’t try include my whole life in a single update and rather save some things for future posts but I will tell you that I do have a lot of very exciting things happening at the moment and I can’t wait for them to be done so I can tell you all about them.
10366203_10154207434017222_7369790720198786114_nSomething that is done though; is my brand new and first ever Instrumental album dropping 15 September 2015 on Arcadiac Records! With that said, however; I’ll save it for the official announcement =)

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
