And beyond his native Australia, the 23 year-old has already slain clubs in headlining capacity across London, Paris, Barcelona and principalities yonder. Along the way he’s also warmed the room for the likes of Julio Bashmore, Jamie Jones and Horse Meat Disco to name but a modest few. Stepping his game up along the way, the Lancelot sound has basslines made to move with a crystalline top-end hitting a signature sweet spot. It’s as immediate as it is considered, lively with a sense of longevity. Without any traces of analog evangelism there’s definitely an underlying preference for performance rather than samples and layered vocal takes over pad-punched stabs.
Since casual music personality Alan Braxe proclaimed breakout Lancelot cut “Spoken Word” to be “an instant classic” [please apply accent] in 2012, it’s been a steady hustle for the young and chivalrous one. Name the deed and he’s out there doing it. Remixes for RÜFÜS, Matt Corby, Say Lou Lou, Sparkadia and New Navy, an original EP on Goldroom’s Binary imprint and NY’s Nurvous Records, an audiovisual collab with EGO on an SOS Band burner as well as some stellar new work alongside Antony & Cleopatra (bits and pieces of Sparkadia and cocknbullkid) – it’s kept him pretty well perpetually up and about for a while now. It’s not as if it ends there either. The spirited caballero is giving 2014 a spur in the guts right from the get-go with EP Givin’ It Up out on Anjunadeep on January 20th.
Not planning on mucking around, it’s jammed to the hilt with remixes from the likes of MK and Isaac Tichauer. Due to the fact that it hits hard and does what it says on the tin, legends like T. Williams and Danny Howard (BBC Radio 1), The Magician (see Magic Tape 38) and Perseus (the French Express don) are already flying the flag for it. The crusade continues.
