Get To Know Australian Producer Lancelot
Up and coming Australian producer Lancelot, drops his newest release on Waze & Odyssey’s W&O Street Tracks, with the ‘Mover’ EP. This 3 track offering falls nothing short of his recent work on Anjunadeep earlier this year, and the title track “Mover” is definitely appropriately named as the baseline just keeps on. We sit down with the Aussie producer to talk about how the EP came about and more in this featured interview. The is out on now on Traxsource via W&O Street Tracks
Hi Lancelot, thanks for taking the time out to chat with us. Tell us where you are and how you are feeling right now.
I am in my living room eating lunch. Excited that the EP has finally dropped – So feeling pretty good! :-)
Tell us in your words a little bit about the Mover EP, how it came to be and how you hooked up with W&O.
These tracks were written the end of last year. About 10 to 15 demos were written during this period but these 3 definitely protruded as the best of the bunch. I’d been poking and prodding at ‘Closer’ the longest. ‘Everything On Its Way Down’ was mainly done in a day and ‘Mover’ went through some arrangement changes because of feedback from fellow producers etc. I’m pretty sure we sent them 9 demos (which is a bit excessive thinking back) ha.. Glad they picked those 3!
What’s behind “Lancelot” as your artist name?
My real name is Lance, I was young and stupid and thought it would be a good idea at the time. HA. Also no one had taken that name!
Share a few artists that have influenced your sound.
Midland, Chemical Brothers, The Presets, Martyn and Floating Points.
Hardware, Software or both? Which ones?
Hardware only really. I’ll use Kontakt libraries for piano/strings stuff where appropriate. Hardware list: Moog Voyager, Juno 106, MS20 (original), Prophet 08, Poly Evolver, Tetra, Virus KC, Maschine and I’ve got a bunch of guitars/basses etc.
Describe your music in three or four words…
Honest, textured, analog and usually melodic.
