The collaboration between 1300 and SOLLYY originated through a quick Instagram callout – an instance where SOLLYY shared an unnamed beat to his social media page and 1300 joined in the further production of following the post, bringing their combined essence to the tune.
1300 have taken a more tongue-in-cheek approach to the track, drawing from the fan feedback on how their music is listened to in gym settings, “We thought it’d be funny to make a song called ‘Cardio’ because we all don’t do any exercise at all. We’re like asthmatic, don’t do any exercise, don’t do cardio ever.”
Since the release of their debut mixtape in April 1300 have performed live across Korea, playing in esteemed venues including Value and Henz Club, as well as Seoul Community Radio’s HAJODAZE YANGYANG Festival. The collective have played alongside acclaimed hip-hop acts including Paloalto, Lil Boi, Ugly Duck, APRO, and Nucksal, teasing the chance of exciting new collaborations with international acts in the future. 1300 have been nominated for the Australian Music Prize, and more recently for FBi Radio SMAC Awards for Record of the Year (Foreign Language) and Best Video for their track ‘Oldboy’. They’ll be soon taking the stage this summer, with upcoming multi-hyphenate appearances at Falls Festival, Spilt Milk, Lost Paradise and Dream Machine Bali. All dates BELOW.
