Triple j’s Hottest 100 countdown has wrapped for another year, with Aussie artist Flume taking the top spot for “Say Nothing”, a collaboration with fellow Aussie MAY-A.

The Sydney producer’s track was named the number-one song of 2022 in the annual countdown as voted by triple j listeners, beating the likes of Spacey Jane, Ball Park Music, and Gang of Youths – all of which were also hot favourites to nab the top spot.

The party starter’s win comes following The Wiggles taking the crown in last year’s triple j Hottest 100 with their Like A Version cover of Tame Imapla’s ‘Elephant’.

This year’s epic win was correctly predicted by 100 Warm Tunas, which claimed that Flume – aka Harley Streten – was most likely to hit the number one spot for the annual countdown.

Award-winning Sydney producer Flume
Flume has taken the number one spot with “Say Nothing” in triple j’s Hottest 100.

Along with taking the top spot, Flume also “Shooting Stars” landed at #30, while his archival demo “Slugger 1.4” came in at #50.

“Say Nothing” was released as the lead single from his third studio album Palaces (2022), with the atmospheric track featuring MAY-A’s ethereal vocals with lyrics that touch on themes of loneliness, and the desire to connect with someone in spite of it.

In a previous interview with triple j, Flume praised collaborator MAY-A for her “beautiful voice” on the track.

“We hung out when I was back in [Australia] and got along really great. She’s really cool. One thing led to another and here we are,” he said.

“I think the best work always comes out when you get along and really gel with the person. That’s the priority for me,”

Flume also took the number one spot in the triple j Hottest 100 in 2016.

It’s also not the first time Flume has taken the number one spot in the triple j Hottest 100.

Back in 2016, he also came in at #1 with his single “Never Be Like You” ft. Kai, which was a follow-up to his 2012 self-titled album debut.

The track beat the likes of Amy Shark, Hilltop Hoods and Tash Sultana in taking out the coveted title, making him the first electronic dance music producer to top the countdown.

He’s also no stranger to making the top 100, with 2019 seeing Flume hit the number two spot on the Hottest 100 with “Rushing Back”, while “The Difference” nabbed third place in 2020’s countdown.

“Drop The Game” also reached the fifth spot in 2013 in the countdown, while “Holdin On” came in at the fourth in 2012.

The talented producer’s latest achievement is further proof that he continues to dominate the music scene and remains a favourite among triple j listeners after all these years. Congrats, Flume!
