Alleys to Valleys is the debut album from Australian hip-hop artists Hermitude The album features Ozi Batla and Urthboy from The Herd and Joelistics from TZU on the title track "Alley to Valleys". John Stuart, Elgusto’s dad, features under the alias Mango Chutney on "Splendid Isolation" and "Damn Man", whilst Aja Stuart, Elgusto’s sister, plays keys on "Drunken Dub" The first single released.

Their debut Alleys to Valleys was lauded for its "world class hip hop production" (Urban Hits Mag), and were constantly compared to major OS acts such as Bonobo and RJD2. Now Hermitude 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.

Alleys to Valleys, their debut album as Hermitude, blew me away. It was streets ahead of anything happening in Sydney at the time. We didn’t even realise you had to gig to get known. Hermitude were initially inspired by British artists like Bonobo and that wonky thing, which I assume refers to the vocal pitch manipulation that surfaces on tracks such as Get in My Life. Angus’s childhood travelling the US and Spain also brought the Latin flavours of early album Tales From the Drift, which remain a component of their music today. With the first two albums, we just rinsed our dad’s record collections for samples, Luke says. With the third album, Threads, we started to concentrate on writing and recording everything ourselves. Performance was an afterthought.
