LANCELOT – REMIXES (Dance/Electro – Australia)

Lancelot

Sydney-based producer Lancelot (aka Lance Gurisik) is a rather busy young man. In the past few months his productions have been getting a lot of heat, turning him into one of the rising stars of the Australian dance pop scene. Back in February, he dropped his debut EP, We Can Dance, via LA-based label Binary, featuring three original tracks and brilliant remixes by Goldroom, Fabian, Frames and Moonchild.

While Lancelot’s solo debut has been consistently praised by critics in Australia and abroad, the young artist has also managed to build a solid reputation as an expert remixer. His kick-ass funky productions for the likes of Matt Corby, New Navy, Faker, Penguin Prison, Toucan, Tim & Jean (and many more) have been spreading like wildfire on the internet, earning him many new fans. Here is a quick selection…

These tracks and many more are all available on Lancelot’s SoundCloud. You can download most of his remixes and stream the We Can Dance EP in its entirety.

TIM & JEAN – LIKE WHAT (Electro/SynthPop – Australia)

Australian synthpop rising stars Tim & Jean may only be 17 and 20 respectively but they sure seem to be on the right track for international stardom. Hailing from Perth, the pair started recording demo tapes in a bedroom studio over three years ago. In late 2009, they made the finals of Aussie radio Triple J’s Unearthed High competition with their super catchy pop song “Come Around”. Heavy on synths but totally light-hearted, the track was wholeheartedly supported by Triple J and doors started to open for Tim Ayre (vocals and keys) and Jean-Christophe Capotorto (keys and guitars), who ended up signing a record deal with Mercury/Universal.

Tim & Jean’s debut album, Like What, is a collection of ten feel-good tracks that clearly reflects their love of 70s soft rock (Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac), funk and all things electro. Mixed in NYC by John O’Mahony (Metric, David Bowie, Bob Dylan), the album feels surprisingly assured and elaborate for a debut. You might get to a point of saturation after a few too many listens but there’s no denying the effectiveness of the duo’s melodies and arrangements. Enjoy their brand new single “Don’t Stop” and check out the video on Vimeo.
