1300 are the boys from outer space. Hailing from Sydney, the Korean-Australian rap crew transcends genre and illuminates the voice of Asian artists whilst reshaping the Aussie hip- hop landscape. Composed of rappers rako, goyo, DALI HART, producer-singer Nerdie and producer pokari.sweat, the group subsume the sounds of abrasive Soundcloud rap, sweat-doused electronic music and the feverish pace of 90’s breakbeat.

Following the success of their first few singles, ‘Brr’, ‘No Caller ID’, ‘Smashmouth’, ‘Oldboy’ and ‘Rocksta’, full-length mixtape ‘Foreign Language’, and their most recent singles ‘CARDIO (prod. SOLLYY)’, ‘Steve Jobs (feat. Kwame)’ and spontaneous Valentine’s Day EP ‘<3’ (pron. less than three) whilst accompanied by captivating music videos, 1300 have amassed local and international recognition from local to international outlets - securing accolades including #23 NME Best Australian Albums of 2022.
