PNC Scores #1 on theaudience.co.nz June Wildcard chart

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Monday 1 July

PNC Scores #1 on theaudience.co.nz June Wildcard chart

The pride of Palmerston North, PNC, has signaled his return with the exclusive streaming of his new track, “Kobe and LeBron”. The result has seen him finish at #1 on and secure NZ On Air Wildcard Making Tracks theaudience.co.nzfunding.

One of the staples of the New Zealand hip-hop scene for years, the new track sees Samuel Hansen aka PNC once again collaborating with David Dallas, with what has again proved a winning duo.

“I'm proud to see that we finished number one,” Hansen said. “There was a lot of other good tracks during the month, so it's nice to see our track connected with people.”

As always the race was a close one, with PNC edging ahead of Diaz Grimm who finished second with his track, “Kanye’s 1st Disciple”.

“I'm currently an independent artist, so the funding means I can take the next step with the song and give it the push it deserves. We're really lucky in New Zealand to have institutions like The Audience & NZ On Air to help musicians achieve their goals.”

This #1 placing sees PNC take home the NZ On Air Wildcard Making Tracks funding, which will go towards recording the single and producing a video (listen to his track here).

Announcing this month’s #1 kicks off the July round of voting. Who will be the next to be discovered? Head to and have your say. theaudience.co.nz
