Hermitude – Slychain
The best hip-hop group in Australia, Hermitude, will be delivering their third LP, Threads, later this month on Elefant Traks. As a pre-cursor to that highly anticipated release, I have for you today a sneaky glance at one of the new tracks from messrs Luke Dubbs and El Gusto, aka: Hermitude.
Slychain is a chilled out banger encompassing a slightly latin influenced beat, mean synth samples and some tight scratches. There are multiple layers to this beautifully arranged track and it’s the inclusion of subtle samples, like the piano riff and additional percussion and vocals, that really complete it.

2005′s Tales of the Drift, by Hermitude, is still ranked up there as one of my favourite hip-hop albums of all time, and Slychain has certainly got my taste-buds buzzing, definitely looking forward to that one. Threads is out on 27th September on Elefant Traks.
