Inventive. Passionate. Full of personality. The music of Australian production duo Hermitude is taking the world by storm. They put a bubbly spin on future beats, and a smile on the face of post-dubstep – using precise production chops and a keen knowledge of instrumental music to create a fresh new approach. Hermitude is comprised of Luke Dubber (aka Luke Dubs) and Angus Stuart (aka El Gusto), a pair of multi-instrumentalists that have been collaborating since they were ages 16 and 11. Based in Sydney and recording in the nearby Blue Mountains, the reclusive duo produces a well-finessed blend of electronic music and hip hop, inspired by instrumentalism. Creative and captivating, their forward-thinking sound features an old school analog vibe. They combine sampling, mixing and drum programming with turntablism, keys, bass and percussion – for an all-encompassing listener experience. Hermitude's latest album, HyperParadise, won the "Best Independent Dance/Electronica Album" award at the 2012 Australian Independent Records Association Awards, as well as the 8th Annual Australian Music Prize. Their label Elefant Traks received the honors for "Best Independent Label." Since then, Hermitude has exploded across the known universe – their platinum-selling hit "HyperParadise" has received over seven million listens on SoundCloud and reached #1 on HypeMachine. One of Australia's most in-demand touring acts, Hermitude is now poised to conquer North America and the rest of the world. They'll be landing at Avalon nightclub in Los Angeles this March, and their much-awaited fifth album will drop in May 2015. - Shilo Urban
