Red Dirt Beatz – Underground Hip Hop from the Heartlandz

It’s a one-off, seriously awesome fundraising party to support the recording/ release of these amazing young Indigenous artists from Alyawarr Country (Northeast of Alice Springs).

Join the Desert Pea Media crew as we raise funds to support an ongoing mentoring program facilitated by DPM, Monkey Marc and Barkly Regional Council – it’s all going down at 6pm @ ‘Watch This Space Gallery’ in Alice Springs, NT on 29th May 2015.

It’s music video screenings, live performances, licensed bar, merchandise and a photo exhibition…

LINEUP

THE DESERT SEVENZ
Winners of the 2014 National Indigenous Music Awards for ‘Community Music Clip of the Year’, the brothers from Ampilatwatja NT bring a unique brand of high energy Indigenous hip-hop. Having recently performed at the Wide Open Space Festival they are ready to ROLL.
See their music videos here

HILL BOYS/ E-TOWN BOYZ
From the remote communities of Epennara and Elliot NT, these crews have also evolved out of an ongoing media program through both Desert Pea Media, Barkly Shire Council and a mentoring program delivered by music producer and OG community artist Monkey Marc. These guys all perform together with the D7’s as a massive Alyawarr headliner 😉

Here’s a recent youth development program in Elliott with Monkey Marc.

SKANK & SHAKE
Centralian duo Skank & Shake have just unveiled their first single Road Trip (featuring Elsie Lange), ahead of their forthcoming debut joint studio full-length album, The Long Road Ahead. It provides the perfect introduction to the duo’s rap-dub-reggae-style fusion of sounds.
