Canberra-based artist LTC (Lolesio The Courageous) is pumping out world class hip hop right now. He's turning heads with a sound that is both ambitious and refreshing.
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
So I really just make what I wanna hear. I’m that guy that’s always craving new music/new sound, constantly browsing Soundcloud etc. I’m still not sure how my sound was developed though - but if it feels good, it must be, and if it’s different - it’s new.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
What can punters expect from your live show?
Lights, graphics and good vibrations.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
So I’m actually fortunate enough to work with a super creative team that have taught me a whole lot over the past 12 months. The best advice is constant from them - so yeah mad S/O’s to Rosco, Mikah, Vance and Chris! Sounds like munnnny.
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Depends on who's crying. And like why are you crying for? As for song choice, I’d sing them the national anthem in my Mr. Bean voice - surely that would cheer up the crying person.
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
Hermitude - The Buzz. That track is next level. That album is next level. Yeah.
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
Thundamentals at UC. Amazing show - dudes absolutely rocked it, energy was fiyah, impossible not to bounce.
Tell us about the bands or people in the Canberra music community that inspire you.
All of them. Canberra knows what’s up. Everyone knows everyone, it’s cool. Inspiration’s in the air over here.
What are your plans for the rest of 2015?
To leave a mark.
