"It was amazing, actually, to be able to go around Canada with an artist like Classified, who's starting to get pretty big there, I believe!" Smith said.

So far, the Canadian hip hop scene has been very receptive to the Australian trio's distinct style and sound.

"We got really positive reception everywhere we went; most of the heads in the crowd hadn't heard us or heard of us before, I don't think, but it went down really well and the shows are selling really well this tour, so we must have made a good impression on a few people."

Next up, they're heading out on another scaled-down Canadian tour, this time as headliners, starting right here in Whistler and hitting stops as far east as Ottawa and Toronto.

"Being as it's winter, it's a fantastic excuse to go snowboarding," Smith chuckled.
