2019 will see San Franciscan producer Eric Luttrell release his debut solo album ‘Into Clouds’ on Anjunadeep.

Initially breaking into electronic music as part of the OWSLA-affiliated trio The M Machine, Eric launched his solo project in 2016 with the acclaimed ‘Need You’ EP, quickly winning support from some of the scene’s key tastemakers, including BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Pete Tong, and DJs like Joris Voorn and Claude VonStroke.

Luttrell’s unique and recognisable sound has seen him rack up a remarkable 87 plays on BBC Radio 1, and almost 15 million streams, catching the attention of acts like Moby and Tycho who both commissioned remixes from Eric.

Inspired by the empowerment and vulnerability experienced in starting anew and going solo, ‘Into Clouds’ is an exploration of beauty and catharsis. Luttrell explains that the deeply-personal 10-track LP is about “doing your best to recognise and appreciate the beauty – both in the good times and the bad.”

Drawing from varied childhood influences like The Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and The Prodigy, his love for San Francisco, and his time as a student in Berlin, ‘Into Clouds’ explores Luttrell’s broad stylistic range. The subtle melodies at the heart of opening and closing tracks ‘After All’ and ‘Outro’ demonstrate Luttrell’s knack for emotive production, whilst infectious club tracks ‘Into Clouds’ and ‘Windowscene’ showcase his commanding dancefloor sound.

Following the release of lead album single ‘Out Of Me’, championed by the likes of Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Luttrell makes a swift return with his second album offering ‘Quiet Even Dark’. The track features Eric owns vocals, woven between vast stirring chord progressions and imposing basslines; once again showcasing Luttrell’s penchant for warm evocative songwriting.

Speaking of the album, Luttrell explains:

“I think each song has a message, a vibe or a feeling that each and every one of us can relate to on some level. Some moments are flying high above it all, some are dreamy or whimsical, and some moments are more pensive, delicate or even vulnerable. I want listeners to make this album their own and attribute their personal experiences and feelings to the music.”  

The album announcement closes out a breakthrough 2018 for Luttrell. Alongside the release of his ‘Intergalactic Plastic’ EP, the title track of which was named Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1, he has played major festivals like Tomorrowland, Holy Ship and the DoLab Stage at Coachella, and toured the world with Anjunadeep, Rüfüs Du Sol, Lane 8 and Above & Beyond.

Now setting his sights firmly on 2019, Luttrell will celebrate the release of his debut album with an extensive 23 date Into Clouds North American Tour.

‘Into Clouds’ is be available to pre-order now via Anjunadeep, digitally, on CD and on 2×12” Vinyl.

      Multi-platinum Sydney-born LA-based producer, Hayden James teams up with Canadian duo Bob Moses to share their new single, “Do You Want Me” out via Future Classic. “Do You Want Me” features a classic vocal from Bob Moses, as warm synths muted down to perfection swirl all around. An ever-present driving bassline builds the track to emotional and euphoric heights as a signature footprint from Hayden James. Ahead of an American summer of festivals and headline shows alike for both Hayden James & Bob Moses, “Do You Want Me” invites you to achieve a state of bliss with those you want near and dear. Hayden James on “Do You Want Me”, says: “I’ve spent most of the year writing in the studio and I’m so excited to finally share my first release of the year with you all. Tom, Jimmy (Bob Moses) and I got together just a handful of times to write ‘Do You Want Me’. This record came together so quickly. We instantly had a vibe together and just had fun in the studio. The song feels like a great representation of both of us. It’s definitely a dream collab for me. I hope you love it.” Bob Moses on “Do You Want Me”, says: “We’ve known Hayden for a bit, and of course have been aware of his work since well before he gave us his killer mix of our track “Back Down” (which we still play all the time btw). We had thought about working together before but somehow never got around to it. But just like that, the window opened and this track quickly came to life out of a few sessions in LA. Hayden is a lovely guy, and we had fun with the process. Hope ya enjoy.” The arrival of “Do You Want Me” is Hayden James’ first for new music in 2023, and follows the release of last year’s album LIFTED. Hayden James previously added his re-work to Bob Moses’ track “Back Down” and now both artists gear up to celebrate their latest single with combined shows in Vancouver and New York next month, having recently road-tested the single at Michigan’s Electric Forest festival a few weekends go. Hayden will next appear at a string of US festivals including California’s Hard Summer, before returning to Australia for the national touring festival, Grapevine Gathering in October. Since breaking out in 2013 with “Permission to Love” and going on to release revered platinum certified hits “Numb” feat. GRAACE, and “Just Friends”, the producer has continued to be at the forefront of the Australian house music scene, carrying on his run of hits with his ARIA-nominated debut album Between Us in 2019, and 2022’s sophomore record LIFTED, which boasts over half a billion streams and was debuted at last year’s Coachella to a packed out stage, before he launched into a North American tour. He then toured across Europe, before landing back in Australia to play his largest headline shows here to date, gracing iconic venues such as Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion, Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena, and Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall. His production mastery on tracks like “Waves of Gold” feat. Azteck as well as “Right Time” with Icona Pop has also landed in the international spotlight, receiving love from Zane Lowe on Beats 1, triple j, as well as Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NME and many more.

    • Arky Waters Releases New Single “Back To You” arky-waters-feature-oz-edm

      Arky Waters caps the year off with his new single ‘Back To You’ featuring the vocals of Jade Alice. This marks Arky’s first collaboration with another vocalist – Jade’s dream pop roots and catchy hooks move with the emotional depths of the track, capturing us through the tender and darker moments. “We made this track around COVID times, I sent her a DM and I honestly didn’t expect a reply, she ended up being open to working with me even though I had nothing out at the time. I sent over an idea that she vibed with and she sent back the hook that’s currently on the track. Once I heard that hook I basically ended up crafting the song around the vocal. For our first time working together it went super smooth; she’s talented as hell. I’d been a fan of her stuff for a while so it was cool to finally make something together.” The track is paired with a four part visualiser made by upcoming Sydney artist Don Kaiyote; the collaboration explores themes of young love, heartbreak and loneliness. “The most important part of this project was to make something that felt close to us – we wanted to capture beauty in something that was quite real and ordinary, something we’ve all felt before.” The video takes us through the journey of young love as a person of colour growing up in western society, diving into the complexities of the modern-day “situationship” and the feelings that revolve around that behind closed doors. Arky Waters is a Sydney based artist exploring his early love for indie/folk with the electronic textures of rave music. Starting in 2020,it began as an outlet from his usual work with alt-rock band ‘Silvers’, and soon blossomed into its own project as he found his feet in production. The songs act as a soundtrack to his life growing up in the suburbs of Australia, bridging the gap between indie/folk songwriting and the pulse of electronic music.
