The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

MU­SIC stream­ing ser­vice Spo­tify put on a show to re­mem­ber with some of Aus­tralia’s top emerg­ing hip hop artists per­form­ing at the Metro The­atre on Thurs­day night.

The prospect of see­ing some new tal­ent proved a win­ner with sev­eral high-pro­file es­tab­lished mu­si­cians in the crowd.

Pek­ing Duk was there, as was Illy — real name Alasdair Mur­ray — along­side in­dus­try heavy­weights and fans.

Six artists, all fea­tur­ing on the Spo­tify A1 playlist, took to the stage in what turned out to be a mini festival event.

Aussies on the bill in­cluded Tripleone, Manu Crooks and Kwame while one New Zealan­der flew the Kiwi flag in JessB.

Pun­ters cer­tainly got bang for their buck. They would have any­way if they had to pay as it was a free con­cert to cel­e­brate the emerg­ing hip hop scene in Aus­tralia. JONATHON MORAN
