Spit Syndicate

Spit Syndicate

Sydney hip hop duo Spit Syndicate is comprised of MCs Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice.

Meeting in high school through mutual friend Solo of Horrorshow, Nick and Jimmy soon discovered they shared a love of rap and decided to form a group. Deciding – somewhat hastily- to call themselves ‘Spit Syndicate’, they began performing gigs while still at high school and quickly built a reputation around Sydney as ones to watch.

After signing with iconic hip-hop label Obese Records, Spit Syndicate released their debut album ‘Towards The Light’ in 2008, which received an ARIA nomination. Their 2010 follow-up ‘Exile’ featured the single ‘Starry-Eyed’ and spawned four national tours.

But it was their third album ‘Sunday Gentlemen’ that truly heralded the Double S’s arrival. With production handled by Adit (Horrorshow), Styalz Fuego and M-Phazes, ‘Sunday Gentlemen’ showcased the duo’s ability to weave thoughtful, catchy, and sometimes confronting stories over contemporary, world-class production.

‘Sunday Gentlemen’ debuted at number 15 on the ARIA charts and featured 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. Their Triple J ‘Like a Version’ of cover of Disclosure’s ‘Latch’ instantly became a fan favourite, and was selected for Triple J’s annual ‘Like a Version’ compilation.

Joined on stage by their DJ/life-coach Joyride, Spit Syndicate’s explosive live show has seen them tour Australia extensively as well as performing at countless festivals. SS enjoy a highly devoted fanbase, and alongside Horrorshow, Jackie Onassis and Joyride, they make up the One Day crew – a collective of musicians and friends who are frequently collaborating, touring and striving to push the boundaries of Australian hip hop.

Spit Syndicate are currently working on their fourth album, and remain one of Australia’s most dynamic and forward-thinking hip-hop acts.
