Event Details

Hermitude are an award-winning electronic production duo hailing from Sydney. Over the past 12 months their profile has exploded off the back of their Australian Music Prize-winning album "HyperParadise." Hermitude have fast become one of Australia's most in-demand touring acts and are set to make further inroads internationally in 2014. 

They formed in 2001 when Sydney duo Luke Dubs (Luke Dubber) and Elgusto (Angus Stuart) paired up with a shared love of beats and turntablism. The offspring of professional musicians, they'd performed together in jazz and funk bands since their early teens. Hermitude's first EP was the vinyl-only "Imaginary Friends" out through Elefant Traks. They followed this up with their debut album in 2003 -- the critically adored "Alleys to Valleys." It established Hermitude's reputation for impeccable instrumental hip hop & electronic production -- esteemed radio figure Tim Ritchie called it "one of the best hip hop/breaks releases I've ever heard." 

By now Hermitude had established their reputation for brilliant studio productions with an engaging and innovative live show -- incorporating a confident, almost effortless musicianship with a deft grasp of technology. Over the next few years they toured Asia, Europe and the USA playing with underground hip hop artists and electronic acts (DJ Krush, Kentaro, Aceyalone, Dizzee Rascal & more). 

In 2007 they released the "Rare Sightings" EP before embarking on their third album, "Threads" in 2008. Hermitude's sound progressed into more electronic territory, embracing instrumental hip hop's electronic relative 'future beats.' Artists such as Glitch Mob and DJ Krush started dropping Hermitude songs in live sets. 

In September 2011 Hermitude released the summery monster single 'Speak of the Devil,' landing it in the triple j Hottest 100. Hermitude's fourth album "HyperParadise" was released in Feb 2012 and charted in the Australian Top 40. The accompanying tour quickly sold out. Hermitude stepped up their festival appearances joining the Groovin the Moo Tour, playing Come Together and also supporting 360 on his Australian Tour. 

The duo released the "Parallel Paradise Remix EP" which featured the Flume's remix of "HyperParadise." The tune stormed to #18 in triple j's Hottest 100, quickly becoming a summer anthem. The single is certified platinum and still selling strongly. 

The Villain Tour in January/February 2013 sold-out in record time and saw them play to over 5000 people. Due to unprecedented demand Hermitude did three sold-out shows in both Sydney & Melbourne. In March Hermitude capped off an incredible 12 months winning the Australian Music Prize, one of the country's most prestigious music awards. 

They've since gone on to play another round of summer festival shows in Australia and have recently completed their first headline tour of New Zealand, selling out every show.
