‘Morganics’ (Australia)

March 7th, 2012 | By

In 2012 Tiny Toones moved to its new, big Centre in Chba Ampov. Australian Morgan Lewis, aka ‘Morganics’ was to be the first lucky International visiting artist. He is an Australian hip hop artist, performer, director and community worker. Although our new dance floor was not finished and our music studio still just a bunch of guys, a little equipment and a whole lot of space … this didn’t stop Morganics from visiting every day he could and spending time between the DJ room, the music production room and the dance floor.

In 2010 AZI travelled from Philadelphia and spent some quality time with the guys in the music department at Tiny Toones. They rapped and freestyled with our guys, made two songs together and even a video clip. A song was written in collaboration between AZI, Tiny Toones and Klapyahandz and a video clip made together. The song was written about Cambodia and can be listened to and viewed here.
