Inner-west Sydney’s Triple One are a melting pot on a quest for singularity. You’ve got Obi and Marty on emcee duties, Lil Dijon with the signature croons, and Billy Gunns making every component pop on production. They’re all influenced by different things like metal, R&B, and hardcore hip-hop, but they’ve brought it together to create a unique sound with hooks that hit, and beats that bang. It’s apparent on eerie trap bangers like “Doozy” and “Redline Reaper”, and support slots for YG, Smokepurpp, and Lil Xan show that the masses are starting to pay attention. But the next stop in their ascension? A spot on the A1 Hip-Hop Playlist with their gigantic anthem “Showoff”.
In the latest episode of Spotify’s “Starting Point”, we learn more about the secret formula behind the breakout hit. They touch on the creation of the beat, the meanings behind some of the lyrics, and how the emos, punks and hip-hop heads occupied their sold out single launch at The Lansdowne Hotel – the Stardust Boys have truly generated the thunder.
