The 100 Best Discoveries off triplejunearthed.com
The act of counting numbers down to zero is one that we humans really get behind. (Whether that be the in film, for New Year's Eve or to send rockets on their merry way to the moon).
 
To celebrate 10 years of triplejunearthed.com, we've spent the day on triple j counting down the 100 best discoveries we've made over the last decade on our Unearthed ~digital space~.
 
The Unearthed team (past & present) put together the list by looking at the artists' journey with triple j Unearthed, their impact on the Australian music scene and how much you love 'em! 
 
It's a diverse list, with a wealth of competition winners, festival favourites, Unearthed High victors and [beams proudly] just some of the best damn talent this country's ever produced: Courtney Barnett, Boy & Bear, Ball Park Music, Big Scary, RÜFÜS, Remi, Tkay Maidza - that's just some of the Top 20.
 
Coming in at #1 is Harley Streten aka Flume, the best discovery of the 75,000+ artists with music on triplejunearthed.com.
 
Currently lighting up arenas all over the world, he's come a long way since we heard his debut upload, 'Possum', back in 2011.
 
"Wow! I haven't played that bad boy in a while," a stoked Harley told triple j's Kyran and Gen down the line from his European tour.
 
"I was just an awkward teenager going to high school, working on beats in my bedroom. That was ground zero for it all, I decided to do a side-project because I was making more club, melodic, chill stuff. That was the first track."
 
In 2012, he won our Field Day comp, earning him his debut festival performance.
 
"That was huge, I was incredibly nervous doing the opening slot on the stage there. That was pretty special. I remember being backstage and just being so shocked you get a porterhouse steak at a festival! The catering was really nice."

Later the same year, Flume was nominated for an Unearthed J Award and entered into Hottest 100 ranks for the first time with 'Holdin On'. From there he's gone on to win many ARIAs, tour ALL the countries and pump up countless festival crowds the world over.
