Enter Re-Animator, a project which draws together fragments of electronics, vocal debris, shattering ice, crowded metro stations, underwater microphones and a deluxe, automated car wash. From the outside this orbiting cloud of noisy shrapnel appears as nothing but a transitory patchwork, doomed to implode towards a neglected corner of Internet 2.0, a broken link, an out-of-date streaming app or abandoned cloud account. But step inside and things get much worse. As you navigate your way through the wreckage, the horizon line begins to tilt and the light begins to fade. Suddenly it’s pouring acid rain. You’re certain it didn’t look this big from the outside. Consider it a type of sound-Tardis, stitched together from lifeless sonic-offal and jolted into life through cheap recording software.
i15 FEAT. JORDAN VARIANT
NLV RECORDS - 2017
“After a big year filled with glowing releases, Melbourne’s Lewis Cancut and Jordan Variant teamed up for a very ‘melodic, post-human love song’. Their latest offering ‘i15′ is a nice, stripped, laid-back electronic listening piece with Jordan Variant‘s soft and lush vocals complimenting Lewis Cancut‘s production.
‘i15′ is bubbly and animated and has nice bright Pop synth stabs that give the track a ‘sparkle’ effect. It’s super bouncy and has lots of layers to create a spacey and fizzy atmosphere. Jordan Variant‘s vocals are soothing, blissful and set the mood to the track, spiralling us into a completely different dimension.”

[LEWIS CANCUT REMIX]
INDOOR RAINFOREST EP
NLV Records - 2016
“Lewis Cancut’s newest release Indoor Rainforest is pristine, tropical house music from a rave inside a video game.
The influence of Japanese and anime culture is strong throughout the record (the cover art is perfect) and the bouncing synths, treated Japanese woodwind sounds and kicking percussion only compound the eccentric high-energy.
Cancut goes a step further on Ice Cream and Asphalt and employs the addictive, sickly-sweet vocal contributions of Miku Hatsune. While all of this might sound gimmicky to some, he’s created something truly intriguing – largely, because it never sits still.
Coming in at an economical 20-minutes, nothing is too cute and nothing outstays its welcome. Cancut takes listeners on an intriguing ride through his Indoor Rainforest which – in the real world – is a man-made attraction; and for that reason, the title is very telling. Nothing here is out of place. It will make as much sense in your headphones as it will when you’re dancing in the dark with strangers.” - Beat Magazine.
SAY OK! FEAT. TIGARAH
Digital Single / Music Video
NLV RECORDS - 2016.
“What I love about Say Ok, this new tune from Lewis Cancut, is that is does this PC Music sound on a level better than some PC Music artists itself, and coming from Australia, it's extremely exciting to hear. Sporting sugary, staccato synth chords and fruity, multilingual vocals from Japanese rapper and singer TIGARAH, Say Ok experiments with sounds unheard of in Australia outside of selective numbers from the Sidechains and NLV Records crews. The breakdown just before the one-minute mark is reminiscent of work by Henrik The Artist, with it's rapid-firing sampling loops and vocal cuts swirling around bright, bubbly synth chords, which leads into more light, sugary vocals from the Japanese all-rounder. The track was recorded when Cancut was in Tokyo for the Red Bull Music Academy, which just adds to the all-round radness of the track.” - Pilerats
