Recently on his BBC Radio 1 stint, producer Skream gave listeners the first preview of the latest music from Australian native Lancelot. The title track off his upcoming EP, “J.O.B.” is a beautifully updated house twist on the 80’s classic, “Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent” by Gwen Guthrie. The longstanding anthem – which preaches the importance of financial stability – is able to find a new presence on today’s dancefloors with this bass heavy remake. The sound of “J.O.B.” is modern and edgy, and through its lead vocal lines – provided by singer Ngaiire – it is able to maintain its retro appeal, making it a standout in the crowd.
Fans of Lancelot might recognize a few of the samples, some of which serve as a nod to the incredibly talented Antony, and help to play up the track as a throwback to their recent collaboration on Lancelot’s single, “Giving It Up.” The J.O.B. EP will be officially released April 28th on Anjunadeep, be sure to stream its preview below.
