*Duende can be loosely translated as having soul, expression and authenticity.
Duende entered the hip hop scene in Melbourne in the year 2000 learning the fundamentals of B-Boying with the 'Sub-Sonic Crew'. From there, he took up Performance Studies at Vic Uni and was introduced to freestyle rhyming around 2005. Duende got more serious about MC'ing in 2007 when he hooked up with two guys (Al-Flex and Jugg) to form the crew 'Nothin Suss'. Around the same time he started making beats on FL studio with the help of his mates, Diggiti Daily, Vision and Large. He has continued to progress as a beat maker and MC which has led him to make two solo EP's and beats for Nothin Suss. Duende's style evolves over time and comes from a place of instant creativity. If you wish to contact Duende for beats, co-labs or just want to chat, you can inbox him on soundcloud or send an e-mail @ email@example.com
