Welcome back to Sneak Up, the PEDESTRIAN.TV X Platypus Shoes podcast celebrating everything from street art to music to culture to anything that gets us a little bit excited.
While we got a crash-course on ’70s skating culture from legend Tony Alva in episode one, episode two sees Soul and R&B boss Kaiit dive into her Papua New Guinea heritage and whether she feels the need to look the part on the reg, reflect on the moment where she thought music could be her actual career and express her love for the Art Centre Melbourne’s Dig Deep programme, an initiative focussed on mentoring young Aussies who live, breathe and sleep music.

If there’s ever a reason to listen to a podcast, it’s to hear Kaiit’s absolutely angelic voice give your soul a huge hug as she talks – it’s impossible not to keep listening for her voice alone.
The second half of the episode taps Marty and Dijon from Aussie hip-hop group Triple One, who have managed to crack the overseas market with their absolute belters. They’ve become so ‘uge that they even managed to score a support gig for US rapper YG during the Aussie leg of his tour late last year.
During the episode, Marty and Dijon offer a tonne of insight into the climate of today’s music and the future of Aussie hip-hop, while also touching on their love for cult Aussie films and how they inspire their work.
You can listen to both eps of Sneak Up right bloody now.
