Nettwerk Records is excited to announce the signing of Hermitude, the award-winning duo based in Sydney, Australia. In 2015, expect the duo to release Dark Night Sweet Light (via Nettwerk Records), the long awaited follow-up to HyperParadise, a beautifully inventive record of future beats and electronica. Their meticulous production, musicianship and passion for instrumental music demands attention.
Multi-instrumentalists, Luke Dubber (aka Luke Dubs) and Angus Stuart (aka El Gusto), have collaborated since they were 16 and 11, respectively. With the Platinum-selling HyperParadise, the band won Australia’s Music Prize, modeled after Britain’s Mercury Music Prize and Canada’s Polaris Prize, whose single goal is to identify and reward the most outstanding creative Australian album of the year. Hermitude beat a shortlist of talented artists, including Tame Impala, The Presets and friend/collaborator, electronic producer and instrumentalist Flume. The Flume remix of title track, “HyperParadise” has nearly 8 million Soundcloud streams and topped Hype Machine’s “Most Popular” at #1.
