Hermitude is an Australian hip hop duo consisting of Angus Stuart and Luke Dubber originally from the Blue Mountains, New South Wales who formed in 2000.
The original roots of Hermitude can be traced back to a school band called Funk Injections which featured both Dubber and Stuart along with Stuart's sister on bass. Its fair to say Funk Injections didn't last, but the boys realised they did work well as musicians. In 2000 Stuart returned from a trip to the U.S with a new set of turntables with the intent on creating some new sounds and invited Dubber for a jam session. They realised the set-up worked and they weren't in need of other musicians and from there Hermitude became a working project.
They shortly signed with the Elefant Traks label, who released the duo's first EP titled 'Imaginary Friends' which was a vinyl only release. The response for the unusual and complex sound was massive and all copies of the vinyl sold out. After this initial positive response, the band followed the EP with their debut album 'Alleys to Valleys' in 2003 which was met with mixed reviews from the critics yet it was enjoyed by their fan base.
They began to gain attention on the electro dance scene and supported international performers such as Dizzee Rascal and RJD2. They have gone on to release three more albums on the Elefant Traks record, the most successful being 'HyperParadise' from 2012 which charted at #37 in Australia. It also won the AIR Award for Best Independent Dance/Electronica album.
