Lewis Cancut continues to impress with a clanging, metallic new banger Plastic Games

After last year's Indoor Rainforest EP, the NLV Records forward-thinker returns, re-linking with Hatsune Miku for his ringing new single.

On his Indoor Rainforest EP last year, NLV Records figure and Diplo collaborator Lewis Cancut took us on an adventure through the left-field club music world, using the EP's six tracks to solidify his name in the experimental electronic world further after his impressive NLV Records debut Say Ok!. Since the saccharine-sweet, PC Music-esque Say Ok!, the Melbourne-based producer - who has previously released through Mad Decent, Main Course and a whole heap more - has been one of my personal club go-to's, continually diversifying his sound and experimenting with aural flavours on a series of remixes which led to the release of Plastic Games, his new single. Plastic Games showcases Cancut's drive to do things a little differently, teaming up with the mysterious, post-human pop star Hatsune Miku (with whom he collaborated with for last year's contrasting Icecream & Asphalt) who gives the single a playful, joyous edge with her child-like pitched vocals. Lewis Cancut accompanies Miku's pop vocal line with a clanging, metallic production which whistles and chimes in the single's club-ready breakdown, with thick layers of sampling and squelching synth tripping over each other to form the backbone of the single's unmistakable drop. The producer has also just signed to Niche Productions for bookings, so hopefully, we'll be able to catch a full set from the clubby creative some time soon (he's also playing Splendour In The Grass, for those lucky enough to cop tickets).
