First Listen: Lando – ‘Ceremony’ (Mistress)

Having turned heads at the end of the noughties as part of Bay Area electro duo Lazer Sword, Antaeus Lando-Roy, now Lando, delivers a deep and driving drum workout as one of no less than 16 exclusive forthcoming tracks on DVS1’s fabric 96 mix.

With a strong run on labels like Hotflush, San Francisco imprint Icee Hott, his own label Myth Music and most notably the standout Stunts EP on Jimmy Edgar’s Ultramajic label, it comes as no surprise that DVS1, aka Zak Khutoretsky, earmarked Lando as a valued contributor to his first commercially available mix CD.

In ‘Ceremony’, a strained vocal sample rides over a relentless but propulsive groove of toms, hats and claps, making way for a myriad of detuned bleeps that move the track into the industrial and hypnotic territory that DVS1’s DJ sets are known and admired for.

FABRIC 96: DVS1 Launch party takes place December 2 at Fabric London. More info here.
