Hermitude - the Blue Mountains production duo of Luke Dubs and Elgusto turn the heat right up with new album 'Tales of the Drift', a testament to the maturity of their instinctively warm, intricate arrangements. Although undoubtedly hip hop by nature, Hermitude stitch together a bed of jazz, funk and Cuban rhythms, then weave delicate melodies and deft electronic touches through it. Guests vocals from the Herds Urthboy and Ozi Batla, as well as Melbourne via London vocalist Blu MC. Elefant Track. 2005.
