MC Trey Feat. The 26th Letter & Jae Tee “Light”

Published on Feb 25, 2013

On Friday 8 March, 2013 MC Trey launched ‘Light’ feat. 26th Letter and Jae Tee, at Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE), 8 Victoria Road, Parramatta where she is an ICE Hubster (artist in Residence). March 8 – International Women’s Day and an opportunity for all to celebrate and reflect on issues that affect women. She hopes that this song will instigate conversations and positive actions in regards to Domestic Violence and relationships.

“Late last year, I received news about the death of a young woman, stabbed to death by her husband as her child lay close by. This tragedy played on my mind. I thought of all the countless acts of Domestic Violence, which go on behind closed doors. People rarely speak, I wanted to speak. I contacted two younger rappers whom I work with, Jae Tee (Isikeli Tavola) and The 26th Letter (Zehrish Naera) about producing a track. We met up and discussed the direction of the track. We decided on three perspectives, the abusers, the female victims and the children,” said MC Trey.

The song was recorded at ICE’s Switch Recording Studios and the video clip created by Tania Safi (Ouff Films). The creative process of planning, writing, recording and filming took four weeks to complete. The final product is ‘Light’

‘ A beautifully melodic, yet haunting Hip Hop dose of reality’
