Across the last two decades, Hermitude – consisting of Elgusto and Luke Dubs, both from the Blue Mountains – have consistently kept evolution and experimentation at the forefront of their craft, paving new directions amongst the electronic, hip-hop and pop spaces that have kept them not just ahead of the curve, but defining the curve’s every move.
Award-winning multi-instrumentalists, Hermitude have moved from strength to strength since meeting in their early teens. First signing to Elefant Traks in 2002, the pair have marked out a sonic footprint that is defined by their hip-hop roots and electronic soundscapes. Their 2012 album, Hyperparadise won the Australian Music Prize and would see its title track reach #38 on the ARIA Charts and its Flume remix hit speakers everywhere, with singles going Gold and double platinum. Their follow-up album, Dark Night Sweet Light debuted at #1 on the ARIA Charts, with single “The Buzz” firmly placing them on the world map. Their 6th album Pollyanarchy again reflected the duo’s development as they became a global force doing headline tours and festivals across Europe, Asia and North America, from Governors Ball to Reading to Splendour in the Grass.
Recently releasing their drum n bass track 'Celebrate' on Elefant Traks (AU/NZ) & Dim Mak (ROW) along with their US tour (June/July 2023) is their first step in their never-ending search for the new sound.
