Hugh Winterflood, aka SkankMC, grew up and lives in Alice Springs, a place that often makes the news for the wrong reasons. It’s a complicated and confronting town, but bordered by the majestic MacDonnell Ranges and with the ancient ghost gum-lined dry Todd River snaking through its centre, it’s also devastatingly beautiful.
To the rest of the country Alice Springs is ‘the Alice’, but you’d never hear a local call it that. Hugh is determined for people to hear his music. He wants to represent the Northern Territory by giving its youth a loud and proud voice on the national stage; a voice that cuts through the negativity on the news with real insight and understanding.
Waging war with the tyrannies of distance, Hugh is going to keep making a go of it in Alice. He knows how crucial it is to keep the NT Hip Hop scene alive and inspire and help younger kids. Check out the new visuals for the track Alice Kings.
