Morgan Lewis, known as Morganics, is a Sydney based Hip Hop performer.
Morganics works around Australia on community educational hip-hop projects such as 1999s Desert Rap with Brothablack and Monkey Mark from South West Syndicate, organised with Tony Collins from Triple J. ABC TV made a documentary on Desert Rap. Another hip-hop program Morganics participated in was in Wilcania in 2002 where he recorded a group of local boys called The Wilcannia Mob. The resulting track, "Down The River" got high rotation on Triple J and won a Deadly award. The song was included on a cd of young Aboriginal Hip Hop artists recorded at workshops around Australia called All You Mob, which New York Times named in their top ten alternative albums of the year. He conducts these workshop as he feels it is important to give young people direct access to Australian hip hop.
Morganics has released three solo albums (one of which contained second disc which was a followup to All You Mob) and worked with Miles Merrill on another. He has performed a live set for Triple J. He performs theatre shows such as Crouching Bboy Hidden Dreadlocks.
