Foreign Heights

"We’re going to say what we feel and we want you to listen. We’re going to be up in your face. We’re going to speak our mind and we’ll have 10 friends behind us backing us up about it."

Foreign Heights is made up of three major figures in Australian hip hop, MCs Trey and Maya Jupiter and DJ Nick Toth. Between them, these three artists have performed with, inspired, collaborated with, or promoted countless aspiring hip hop artists. Fijian Australian MC Trey recorded her first tape in 1996 with DJ Bonez and went on to release the full length albums ‘Daily Affirmations’ and ‘Tapastry Toons’. Of Turkish and Mexican background, Maya Jupiter began MC-ing in high school and released her first tracks in 2000. She went on to release the LP ‘Today’ in 2004 and is currently the producer and co-host of JJJ’s Hip Hop Show. DJ Nick Toth hails from Austria where he first began DJ-ing but relocated to Sydney where he became the DJ for seminal Australian hip hop crew Metabass’N’Breath.

Words from the City filmed extensively with MC Trey throughout two courses of her 'Island Beatz' workshop, and with Maya Jupiter and Nick Toth as Foreign Heights prepared for the release of their debut album together.
