Starting out quite firmly behind a piano rather than a pair of CDJs, Lancelot is a producer/maker/doer before all else. A graduate of Sydney’s Conservatorium of Music, Lancelot spent several years in touring bands before charging into the club scene in early 2013. Following a string of warmly received records and a constant touring schedule through Australia and Europe, it was 2014’s ‘Givin’ It Up’ EP on acclaimed UK label Anjunadeep (Dusky, Steve Huerta, Clarion) that sprung Lancelot into the scene. An immediate hit with informed chaps like The Magician, Perseus (French Express), T.Williams, Bondax and Ben Pearce, resurgent house don MK even found time to remix the A-side.
A follow-up EP on Anjunadeep featuring Australian diva Ngaiire curried similar favour, premiered by Skream (BBC Radio1) and supported by Jason Bentley (KCRW). After completing a remix for Sydney electro luminaries, The Presets, Lancelot knuckled down in his London studio to write and record the soundtrack for an original television series. The soundtrack has been nominated for several industry awards in Australia and the show optioned for a second season.
Lancelot closed 2014 touring the United States, before dropping a string of releases; ‘Connection’ on Anjunadeep, accompanied by remixes from Mak & Pasteman & Bristol’s Outboxx, a well-received edit of Four Tet via the Deep House Amsterdam crew and most recently, a three track EP on Waze & Odyssey’s w&o Street Tracks imprint - past home to acts like Citizenn, Eliphino and XXXY. Lead single ‘Mover’ was featured by Bicep on their personal blog, premiered by B.Traits (BBC Radio 1) and supported by diverse talents like Mr. G, Agoria, Citizen, Richy Ahmed and Jacques Renault.
Lancelot has headlined clubs across the UK, Europe, United States and Asia, performed at festivals including Secret Garden Party (UK), Warehouse Project (UK), Field Day (Sydney) and TomorrowWorld (Atlanta) and warmed the wheels for Jamie Jones, Julio Bashmore, Horsemeat Disco and more.
