Hailing from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, 21-year-old Lanstan is one of Australian hip-hop’s brightest up and comers.
Breaking onto the scene in 2017 with viral smash hit Garn Servo, Lanstan immediately established a unique tone, blending Australian culture with American trap music. In following years, through powerful melodies and introspective lyricism, Lanstan has continued to build his brand and loyal following with conceptually immersive projects.
Lanstan released his new single, Icarus, on July 3rd and is looking forward to upcoming releases with EDM heavyweights The FifthGuys and other Australian artists such as Talakai and Kuren.

Following the success of Blueprint, which has 50k streams across platforms since it’s March release and an Instagram repost from legendary fashion photographer/artist Steven Klein, Lanstan returns with Icarus, the second single from his upcoming project “2020 Vision”.
With eerie melodies and a bold bassline pulsing under washy, auto-tuned vocals, Icarus allows enough space for Lanstan to explore deeper themes of the dark underbelly of the rockstar lifestyle.
Detailing his own experience with the rollercoaster-like highs and lows of being in the music industry and his relationship with recreational drug use, Icarus is a rare moment of vulnerability for an artist teeming with pride and hopefulness in his usual sound.
Lanstan’s next release is set for September 4th – pre save/pre add Fade Away HERE
