Light years away from their instrumental hip hop origins, Hermitude blaze a trail into darker and more complex territory where drums and melody rule the Earth. From the thrilling pursuit of the computer game-esque "Cartridge Kings" to the beautifully sombre "Frayed", they've simultaneously increased the live instrumentation whilst short circuiting it with bass-heavy electronics. Hermitude's arrangements never remain stagnant; they mature with each minute: counter melodies enriching compositions layer upon layer. Witness the wall of orchestration toward the finale of "The River" as a dramatic juxtaposition to it's understated beginning. LUKE DUBS and ELGUSTO (URTHBOY's producer) have moulded and finessed each piece through a concentration of dancehall and reggae; electro, latin and jazz; to cough up something wildly diversionary from hip hop. They're also utilizing a few more vocal tracks this time around; guests include soul singer STEVE CLISBY, Jamaican reggae star LUCIANO, URTHBOY, ELANA STONE and KOOLISM's HAU. Threads will be available on CD and vinyl and is the fourth release for Hermitude.
