Being such an in-demand host for events throughout the country, Fraksha is considered one of the top grime/dubstep emcees in Australia. With a critically acclaimed self titled debut album with Nine High (released July 2009) under his belt, collaborations with many of Australia’s notable artists, as well as contributing one of the highlight tracks to M-Phazes Aria winning ‘Good Gracious’ album AND performing on the subsequent national tour, it’s fair to say Fraksha is a widely respected artist in the Australian music scene. The success of his first solo mixtape, ‘It’s Just Bars’, (the first official grime release to come out of Australia), received rave reviews through the country, winning mixtape of the year in the 2010 annual ozhiphop.com awards. Following the mixtape’s success came, ‘The Sunday Roast’, a radio show broadcasted on Kiss FM in Melbourne – Australia’s purely grime show! 2010 also saw the formulation of Australia’s first grime crew, Smashbrothers, consisting of Fraksha, Mc Diem, Scotty Hinds and Murky Depths. Since dropping the first in a series of global grime mixes presented by grimeforum, Smashbrothers were personally asked to record an official Australian vocal of grime anthem, ‘Pull Up Dat 2011′, by legendary grime producer Dexplicit. With such success and plenty more to come, including a tour of New Zealand with hip-hop legends Dizzee and Dead Prez.
