Following their critically acclaimed 2010 release Exile and after a busy year of touring, Sydney duo Spit Syndicate are back with a brand new online mix-tape project Best Intentions: Part One, the first of a two-part mix-tape series available for free download via online networks Friday 30th September.
Best Intentions sees MCs Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice return to the mix-tape format from which they first made waves in the local hip-hop scene. Over the course of 9 tracks, Spit Syndicate drape their trademark flair over a range of different sounds, from the boom-bap of Pharoahe Monch to the more eclectic, moody sounds of indie outfit the xx. Exhibiting their sharpest lyricism yet, the mix-tape series showcases Spit Syndicate’s ability to reinvent a selection of tracks with command and creativity. Just a taste of what’s to come and keen to provide fans with a little something to tie them over, Best Intentions is a prelude to the highly anticipated third album dropping early 2012.
“Best Intentions is a gesture of thanks and gratitude for everyone who’s shown us love and support: a completely free release. We’ve treated it with the same attention that we would a studio record, but there is something about a non-album project that seems to free us up; less over-thinking and more straight-up hip-hop.” – Nick Lupi
