AIR Member Elefant Traks was started by by Kenny Sabir (Traksewt) in 1998. Their first official release was a compilation called Cursive Writing, back when a small group of friends used to sit up day and night burning CDs in their share-house bedrooms.
Eventually enlisted the help of Tim Levinson (Urthboy) and Richard Templenizza (Sulo) to run the administration arm of the label, they became founding members of the Australian hip hop group The Herd.
One of Australia's longest standing Independent Record Labels, Elefant Traks work with artists such as Hermitude, Horrorshow, Urthboy, L-FRESH The LION, Joelistics, The Tongue, Astronomy Class, One Day, Jane Tyrrell and many more.

Over the last 18 years, the label and their artists have shared in some incredible moments and triumphs, including ARIA nominations, AIR award wins, AMP award wins and a growing army of fans that they liked to call family.
In 2015, Hermitude’s 5th studio album Dark Night Sweet Light was released and landed at #1 on the ARIA and AIR Charts. The duo also signed a worldwide deal with Nettwerk Records, and toured the world extensively. A huge achievement for both the band and the label, who have been together for almost 10 years.
