Sydney’s Inner West duo Spit Syndicate, made up of Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice, are one of Australia’s most exciting, forward thinking hip hop acts.
After meeting in high school, the pair decided to form a rap group, quickly building a reputation around Sydney as ones to watch. Barely out of their teens, they released their debut album TOWARDS THE LIGHT in 2008, earning them an ARIA nomination for ‘Best Urban Release’, and the promise of big things to come. Their 2010 follow-up EXILE featured the single “Starry-Eyed” and spawned four national tours.
Spit Syndicate’s third album, SUNDAY GENTLEMEN was received in with critical acclaim from fans and media alike. Debuting at no.15 on the ARIA charts, the album featured the singles “Beauty In The Bricks”, “Folly” and “Amazing”, with each enjoying months of high rotation on triple j and launching several national tours and sell-out shows across Australia.
Together with high school friends Horrorshow, Joyride and Jackie Onassis, Spit Syndicate are founding members of the One Day collective. The supergroup released one of 2014’s biggest albums MAINLINE, which debuted at no.2 on the ARIA charts and featured the singles “Love Me Less”, “Leave Your Windows Open” and “SDRO”. The crew also kicked off ‘One Day Sundays’ on the last Sunday of every month at The Vic On The Park in Marrickville, celebrating live music by the group, good vibes and street art. The success of the day has gone national, with the crew now throwing wildly successful ‘One Day Sundays’ block parties and boutique festivals all over Australia.
Less than a year after their last LP ONE GOOD SHIRT HAD US ALL FLY, Spit Syndicate return with their fifth studio album ORBIT, their first album to be released via One Day Entertainment. Featuring guest appearances by Tuka, Turquoise Prince, imbi the girl and Kai, and produced entirely by long term collaborators Adit (Horrorshow) and Jono Graham, ORBIT is their most confident and forward thinking record yet.
