When you talk about Lander Gyselinck, you say in one breath versatility, energy, quirkiness, curiosity, even brilliance & ‘revelation’.

The ambitious drummer, composer & improviser grew from a young super talent to a respected value in the Belgian jazz and improvisation scene and this at an unseen pace.
His eccentric musical taste goes beyond jazz and tests limits of contemporary electronic music, pop, hip hop, free impro, Indi music, noise and more.
This way, he developed a broad and individual sound, which he uses in a lot of different musical projects, like popular glitch-hip hop band STUFF.
His drum play is explorative, inventive, virtuoso & exciting.

The influences of his teachers Stéphane Galland, Kris Defoort, Dan Weiss & Reggie Workman are, together with the New York vigour (he studied at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music), unmistakable.

Only 29 years old, but a record that stands out from anything else.
It is no surprise he won multiple awards. In 2010 he received the ‘Toots Thielemans Jazz Award’ and he was elected ‘Best Musicians of the Year’ (MIAs).

In the past, was also involved in the following bands:
Toine Thys Quintet
