While most follow the leader, Melbourne MC Saki has deliberately ventured off on his own forging himself as a creative voice and irrefutable talent. Laced with a calm demeanour, Saki oozes truth and boasts a mindful and vulnerable approach to song writing.
Born of Polynesian/Australian descent, Saki Dj’d since 1999 with the aspirations to become a producer. Looking to fine tune his studio skills he attended SAE Music College and received a Diploma in Music Industry. Initially production was Saki’s main focus, but this was quickly overtaken by his urge to write. Three years later Saki has joined forces with Melbourne producers Pato and more recently with new accomplice and fellow beatmaker Arkiv.
Armed with DJ and live drummer, Saki’s true abilities excel with an infectious stage presence proving that his work does not end in the studio. With a mix of reggae infused hip hop and even rock it is clear that he is a unique fixture in Melbourne’s heavily populated hip hop landscape. As one of Triple J’s Unearthed, Saki has managed to make regular features on Triple J’s Hip Hop Show, solidly standing within the underground realm of local hip hop. All braggadocio and hip-hop swagger aside, Saki emerges heart out and eyes wide with his debut EP The Silent Son set for release in November 2011 (iTunes Only).
