Hermitude is an Australian hip-hop/electronic duo comprising of Elgusto and Luke Dubs.
They signed with Elefant Traks in 2002 and their relationship with the label continues to this day. From their debut album Alleys to Valleys, through to the flourished sounds explored on the follow-up Tales of the Drift, and then, of course, the musical richness of Threads, those early chapters of Hermitude’s career saw a quick and fiercely loyal fanbase form, while the Hermitude name and reputation generated industry acclaim.
The Flume remix of title track ‘HyperParadise’ propelled Hermitude onto more music radars, while the song went on to enjoy ARIA Platinum success. Signing with Nettwerk Records in 2015 introduced Hermitude to international crowds, a US tour, and reaping successes at notable festivals including SXSW, Governor’s Ball and Lollapalooza.
It came with 2015’s Dark Night Sweet Light—the duo’s most comprehensive and accomplished effort to date. Spawning the likes of ‘Ukiyo’, ‘Through the Roof’ and the Platinum smash hit, ‘The Buzz’, Dark Night Sweet Light earned Hermitude their first Australian #1 album and also earned positive reviews upon its international release later that year.
Now, three years on, Elgusto and Dubs have emerged with a powerful new single '‘Stupid World’, a response to the craziness seeping into our every day. A fiery addition to their body of work, ‘Stupid World’ sees songwriter and vocalist Bibi Bourelly—whose writing credits include Rihanna, Usher and Mariah Carey.
The duo has achieved international recognition for their stellar work and built key collaborations with artists such as Big K.R.I.T, Buddy, and BJ The Chicago Kid along the way.
