Animator is a New Zealand born rapper and beat maker based in Melbourne Australia. Known more so for his thought provoking lyrics as a rapper, Animators finesse as a spoken word poet has seen him compete and reach the finals in the Victorian Poetry Slam in 2009 & Poetry Idol in 2010.
Being one of the few eclectic producer/rappers emerging from the Melbourne scene, Animator has fused a spot as a unique individual. Sourcing most of his sounds from field recordings, this organic approach only compliments his abstract, sometimes ambient view on writing music.
With releases now available on UK breaks label Scarcity & Melbourne’s own Hopskotch Records, Animator plans to drop his next ep Where the Field Separates for free as a digital download on Bandcamp, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for this inspiring homegrown artist.
