In September last year, A-Trak came to Australia with the Parklife tour. While he was there he joined Heaps Decent in Wagga Wagga, NSW where they took him to Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre for a day of music making with the young artists inside the centre.

This track is what came out of it.

Heaps Decent

Apr 13 2010

Heaps Decent is a really cool project that was established in 2007 by Sydney DJs Nina Agzarian and Andrew Levins with American DJ/producer Diplo (Wesley Pentz). Heaps Decent is an initiative committed to finding and nurturing the creativity of underprivileged and Indigenous young people and emerging artists. By providing resources and opportunities, Heaps Decent supports the development of high quality Australian music with a unique identity.”

Here is a little mix that they did of snippets recorded at different Heaps Decent workshops in the last 3 years. To get your juices flowing, the first minute happens to be a new track that A-Trak produced that’s coming out next month.
