Started in Year
Foreign Heights – a multicultural “supergroup” from 2006 – 2008, including Trey, Maya Jupiter and Dj Nick Toth. Their debut album featured Tanzanian-Australian MC and producer Mr.
Zux as well as a number of female MCs.
The relationship between Maya and Trey is a strong one, stretching back to the late 90’s – they’ve run music workshops together in Sydney for young women, guested regularly in each other’s live performances and even toured internationally together. It was a forgone conclusion they would eventually start writing music together, and the next step was getting Nick Toth onboard to help out with production and musical ideas. The trio started talking about it as early as 2003, but with their respective busy schedules it was always going to be a mammoth task getting them all together in the same room. In fact, Trey claims it took a good couple of years to get the debut album in the can.
“It wasn’t easy, I tell you,” says Trey. “When I’m doing my solo stuff it takes around a year, but if you’re working with three different schedules it takes a lot longer. And then of course you’ve got the guests and other producers on the album, trying to get things done when you’re on the other side of the world. But eventually it came through.” –
