Few rival the dedication Adelaide hip hop duo Dialect & Despair show their genre. The young pair; emcee Dialect 22 and producer Despair 26, have already earned themselves international notoriety as a result of their infallible commitment to keeping hip hop culture alive.
D & D have evolved since the release of debut album The Vortex in 2010, with their rare quality of emcee/producer synchronicity strengthened and all manner of new experiences under their belts. Due for release on October 31st 2012, Dialect & Despair’s second album Self Evident is a testament to their passion for their craft, its culture and the historical legacies it has left behind by its champions.
Despair’s innovative production laced with traditional principles and samples, sets a vivid scene for the varied subjects explored by the vehement Dialect. Self Evident boasts a list of high calibre guests including Vordul Mega, Total Eclipse, Beneficence, Melanie Rutherford, Malanin 9, S.I.T.H, Majestic Gage and D Flow.
With a passion for maintaining a universal hip hop culture, Self Evident focuses on the music, principles and stories behind the movement, whilst blending the old with the new.
“The production is unique; the lyrics are not what everyone else is saying. We are carving our own lane. We are trying to push Hip Hop into another realm for this country.” - Dialect
