Well, that’s how Smokefree Tangata Beats works this year. Go out there and practice, practice, practice….write, write, write. It will be worth it. It’s better to be prepared…you’ll have a heap more fun. Remember – if you don’t win it’s not the end of the world, some of the biggest names in New Zealand music haven’t won Smokefree Tangata Beats, but they have used it as a time and place to learn, develop, and refine their craft and skills.
