Dialect & Despair are an Australian hip hop duo consisting of rapper Dialect and producer/engineer Despair. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, the two met in 2009 through a mutual friend and developed a partnership due to their similar hip hop ideology. Heavily inspired by the American hip hop scene of the early 1990s, Dialect & Despair have a style that is unique in Australian hip hop.

They released their debut album, The Vortex, in 2010 to positive reviews from critics. Two years later, they released their sophomore album, Self Evident, once again to positive reviews. Dialect & Despair are currently working on their third album, set to be released sometime in 2016.
