Hailing from Canberra, Australia but no stranger to American hip hop circles (see his video “She” with Masta Ace) Nix recently released a visual for his track “Beauty In The Breakdown”. “Nix’s style can be described as sincere and heartfelt, with a boom-bap twist.” And on this track Nix goes “in” with heavy self-reflection and (dope) thought provoking lyricism. Enjoy!
“Nix is an emcee of Chinese-Indonesian heritage who is currently based in Canberra. Nix’s style can be described as sincere and heartfelt, with a boom-bap twist. His music is a reflection of his everyday life. From the tough decisions we have to make in life to the emotions that come with heartbreak, Nix explores topics that almost anyone can relate to, no matter where they are from.
Born in Broken Hill and raised in the suburbs of North-West Sydney, Nix developed his love for hip-hop in high school and began to dabble in the art of rhyme not long after. Following high school he relocated to Canberra for university studies. It was not until completing his studies and commencing full-time work that he decided to focus on making music a priority.
In 2012, Nix released his debut mixtape ‘The Nixtape’. Nix has featured on tracks with artists such as Masta Ace, Percee P, Oddisee and Illmaculate. He has also performed numerous live shows and supported artists such as Swollen Members, the Pharcyde, Guilty Simpson & Katalyst, Blu & DJ House Shoes, Rahzel & DJ JS-1, High Focus Records, Briggs & Hau, Spit Syndicate and more.”
