Lancelot – Givin’ It Up
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Lancelot is the latest in a line of talented musicians to join the Anjunadeep roster. His debut release on the label, “Givin’ It Up / Make Ends Meet” set the blogosphere alight and has been supported by everyone from T. Williams and Danny Howard to Tensnake and The Magician.
In fact MK, fresh from his unstoppable UK #1 single, loved “Givin’ It Up” so much that he found the time in his hectic schedule to turn out a remix. Built around the swirling vocals of Antony & Cleopatra, his mix is a masterclass in groove, blending shuffling percussion with an infectious yet subtle piano refrain to create a true retro gem. Reminiscent of the classic 90s piano house sound that MK himself helped pioneer, it’s easy to see why he’s one of dance music’s most exciting artists right now.
Isaac Tichauer and DJ Nibc take their remix down an equally retro, but altogether different path, channelling breakbeat influences in a ravey piano number. A surging piano riff drives the track through to an old school breakdown straight out of 1992, complete with melodic stabs, syncopated drums and of course the infectious vocal.
Rounding off the package in style are UK up and comers Panda. Fresh from releases on Cool Kid Music and Sound of Sumo, they bring their contemporary bass heavy sound to the original. Once again the irresistible vocal leads the way, accompanied by bouncy piano stabs and a potent bassline.
