Funky house fans can rejoice with this new funky house track that’s just landed in our inbox from rising producer Lazrjet.
Lazrjet, aka Marc Langsman has a truly diverse style as a producer and DJ. Inspired by the underground sounds of London’s pirate radio stations and his parents contrasting record collection, he quickly took to the decks professionally in 1997 after blowing his student loan on technics. Fusing classic tracks by bands like Pink Floyd and the Beatles with house, garage and hip-hop won him the Scottish Finals of the Vestax/Telegraph ‘Student DJ of The Year’ competition and ranked 2nd in the UK.
Following this success, Marc supported Scottish tour dates with Ministry of Sound, Cream and Miss Monneypenny’s. Edging towards a more production-based approach, he jumped on the creative potential of digital vinyl emulation and held residencies at the Edinburgh festival mixing up beats and samples alongside saxophonists and live musicians. Continuing to carve out his ecletic but accessible sound, he played at Sunrise Festival, Churchill’s Cabinet War Rooms for the launch of the award-winning hacking game ‘Defcon’ and in the backrooms of London’s underground trance scene.
“I’ve always enjoyed juxtaposing diverse styles and this is reflected in my production work” says Langsman. “My first single ‘No Sunshine’ reworks vocals inspired by the Bill Wither’s 1970’s classic on a Nu Disco meets Chillwave summertime tip. At the moment I’ve been really influenced by Miguel Campbell and all the awesome stuff coming out on Hot Creations as well as Com Truise and Chillwave pioneers like Washed Out and Toro Y Moi.”
