“Rapper Charles X and Hypeman R2D2 give us Western Sydney’s rap duo Cult Shφtta. Noted for their eccentric signature style and stage presence the childhood friends are nothing less than colourful.
Growing up the pair found themselves to be heavily influenced by the likes of Pharrell, Kanye West and just about anything and everything to do with the old school 90’s, helping them develop and tailor their own sound and look.
Cult Shφtta’s energy and following hasn’t gone unnoticed, landing them performances at festivals such as The Plot, Snow tunes and Hard Grime along with more intimate shows at Sydney’s most prominent clubs and venues including Hudson Ballroom, Enmore Theatre, and Oxford Art Factory. The two have also opened shows and had the crowd jumping for artists Chingy, Fabulous, Ghostface Killa, Troyboi and Thundamentals.
Their vibrancy can also be verbally captured in their features on established blogs including Complex AU, Life Without Andy and Stoney Roads or Interviews on Sydney’s the Edge or FBI Radio. You can also catch the two in documentaries by SBS Viceland & Highsnobiety.
With an attractive liveliness, Cult Shφtta have built many relationships in the music scene, which has seen them collaborate with the likes of house music producer Spenda C (a collaboration that turned into a national tour) and many gigs alongside DJ Jade Le Flay, most notably Splendour in the Grass 2017.
