Formerly recording as AEONS, in 2011 Lance dropped the drums, kicked aside the USB keyboards and embedded himself in the studio to create his own dense style of house music.
With a fetish for analogue gear, Lance draws upon his broad knowledge of classical music styles and forms while recording and writing for dancefloors – the result sitting somewhere between new‐wave pop and down‐tempo, tropical house.
For the past 3 years Lance has been composing orchestral music, studying at the elite Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
After hours, Lance snuck into the faculty recording studios, laying down a swathe of well‐regarded, official remixes for artists including New Navy (Future Classic), Toucan, Fabian (Binary), Penguin Prison, Sparkadia (Ivy League), Faker (EMI), Tim and Jean (Universal) and Fallulah (Sony DE). This winter he recorded three original tunes for the upcoming We Can Dance EP.
Now, with a freshly framed graduation certificate and sharp new hair‐cut to boot, LANCELOT is plunging straight into the club.
LANCELOT’s 'We Can Dance EP' is set for digital‐release worldwide on LA‐based label Binary (Fabian,
Keenhouse, Nightwaves) on Beatport on February 20th, followed by a worldwide release on March 5th. The EP is comprised of seven songs including remixes by Goldroom, Fabian, Moonchild, and Frames.

In case you missed it, Goldroom's remix of Niki & The Dove's Mother Protect peaked at #4 on the Hype Machine Most Popular Chart, has been streamed over 100,000 times on Soundcloud and recieved support from the likes of The Magician, Alex Metric, Aeroplane, Mylo, Breakbot and more.
Keep an eye out for Goldroom's first single on Herve's label Cheap Thrills, a European tour in April and a San Francisco date at Blow Up with Clasixx on 2/10. All signs point to 2012 being another big year for Goldroom.
Born of the simplicity of soulful choruses and small electronic ornaments, Goldroom has transformed into a magnificent display of modern music culture; a fascinating tale of tropical textures, soundscapes, and rhythms doused in nostalgic romance.
Truly an undiscovered gem, Goldroom surfaced through various styles fused mainly by impeccable music production. Josh (Goldroom) creates a sound of such high caliber, that it becomes the pure gold in the pseudonym. Particularly Goldroom’s latest production is what we feel highlights his unique blend; with a mixture of complimentary percussive elements, keyboards and endless melody, Goldroom’s remix of Mother Protect by Niki & The Dove has been supported/played by endless acts including Mylo,The Magician and Aeroplane. If the impressive array of supportive members has yet to convince you of Goldroom’s rarity, you can submerge in one of his unique mixes posted below, and judge for yourself.
This past year has undoubtedly paved a golden path in Josh’s musical career, branching out from Nightwaves with an exquisite sound and incredible tunes that have completely blown up. With countless of new projects up his sleeve– we can expect new productions full of great sensations for the continuation of Goldroom’s success in 2012.

Last week Eat More Cake announced the release of their double EP, "Climb The Ladder, Live The Dream" - Now they are giving away a free mp3 of the single "Smoke & Mirrors"
Download Mp3 here: http://cl.ly/3W0z0q212q2T3I3x3r1G
Smoke & Mirrors Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyvbKbGCeWY
Eat More Cake are London-based songwriter/producers Andy Briggs and Matt Pearn. They’ve remixed people like David E Sugar, One eskimO, Avatars, and The Milk, and done wonders with the Stardust classic ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ and Bob Marley’s ‘Is This Love’.
And now, on Sept 19, they are taking the unique step of releasing two 6-track EPs on the same day. Entitled ‘Climb The Ladder, Live The Dream EP1 + EP2’ it’s part classic down-tempo, part electronica, complete with massive melodies, café del mar guitars and hip-hop beats.
Highlights? Well, there’s EP1’s soulful opener ‘You’ll Be There,’ the 90s laidback trip-hop of new single ‘Smoke & Mirrors,’ and the lushly string-led (courtesy of the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra) ‘Story of My Life.’ Meanwhile, EP2’s Massive Attack-like and ‘Music Box’ is a call to arms to a disengaged generation: “Told yourself you’d never do what they do – thought you’d change the world, but the world changed you.”
The band have already won fans at the likes Radio 1, 6Music, KISS and XFM and have appeared on Hed Kandi compilations ‘The Mix’ (UK) and ‘Serve Chilled’ (US). On stage, they’re known for some quite fab parties too – at Proud Camden, The ICA, 93 Feet East, and Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, to name a few. Look out for a host of live London supports toward the end of the year.
