Late last week Orlando Higginbottom A.K.A. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs A.K.A. T.E.E.D announced the launch of his new record label, Nice Age. Actually it’s more of an anything label, being an outlet for music, clothes, parties and whatever else T.E.E.D. wants to unleash. The première release is this intricate collaboration with LA based Aussie Anna Lunoe; Feels Like.
T.E.E.D.’s sonic pallet tends to travel from introspective and quaint SynthPop to absorbing Deep House, but here he incorporated a whole heap of Techno into the mix. Layering skippy Garage beats with crunchy Techno kicks T.E.E.D. and Lunoe build up a compelling festival groove that keeps things tight enough for the pair to roll out a floaty duet over the top. it’s a track that is both surprising and complex. Maybe it shouldn’t work, but it does, Really well.

Partyfine is just full of collaborations, isn’t it? most of them involving label boss Yuksek. So it’s no surprise that the imprint’s latest release, the forthcoming Don’t Miss, sees the man himself teaming-up with the one and only Alex Metric and Aussie producer-of-the-moment Anna Lunoe. Yuksek and Metric bill themselves as The Alexanders and the track broken ground on Annie Mac’ show this past weekend.
Don’t Miss is a cheeky House juggernaut. Driven by a mind-bendingly infectious Italo flavour bassline, the track is a full-on Electro-House stomper the like of which you don’t see so much these days, making us feel nostalgic for the Electro-House boom days of 2007/2008. Spikey synths and abrasive burbles rub shoulders with comfortable retro stabs and Anna’s mantra vocals to deliver one of those peak time anthems.

The Alexanders’ Don’t Miss is released 24th February.
New York House legend Eli Escobar dropped a new single this past week. Released on Nurvous the track, an ode to his home town, features vocals from Australian producer Anna Lunoe. Giving a shout out to the city’s districts and underground club scene, Red Hot is a deep and groovy anthem for New York City nights.
A burbling, stripped back warehouse tune, Red Hot mixes the old school with the new with an array of vintage synths and drum machines hammering out gagged beats and basslines. With a slightly Acidic feel amongst the retro House, the tune is given it’s icing courtesy of Lunoe’s sultry, deadpan, croon. The is one you’ll find on the dancefloors of dimly lit basement parties.
Ready for something bassy and boomy? Here’s Belgian electronic Maestro A.N.D.Y.’s reMix of Anna Lunoe recent single Breathe. A.N.D.Y.’s giving the track away as he’s got a lot to celebrate. Being signed to Sony Music, handled by Live Nation and a string of festival appearances added up to a killer 2013 for the man. He’s particularly Belgian reMix is the perfect way to end the year.
Kicking off with a early Electro beat, loaded with B-Boy vibes, the track soon charges head first into the realms of mid-80s Belgian EBM. Clanging Industrial percussion and, metallic, sampled riffs conjure up a back-clad stomp which you would thing contrasted with the tracks House roots, or the the big piano House breakdowns in the reMix, but it really doesn’t. Add a sprinkling of Acidic burbling and you’ve got a melting pot of electronic awesome.
After a rash of awesome releases on Future Classic, including collaboration with Flume and Touch Sensitive, Australian producer Anna Lunoe has just dropped a huge tune via Fool’s Gold/Ultra Music. The track, Breathe, was co-producer by Vaughn Oliver, A.K.A. U-Tern (or as he’s probably better know these days, one half of Oliver). Smouldering Deep House vibes for the weekend.
With one foot in the early 90s, Lunoe delivers a futuristic floorfiller that listens like a record of early dance music production techniques . Amongst the stuttered sampling and sinewave bassline, Lunoe serves up an intoxicating and catchy ElectroPop tune. Utterly irresistible, Breathe delivers everything you want right in the middle of the night, on the middle of the dancefloor. A sure-fire hit, just you wait and see,
Future Classic , this week, released the new single from Australian DJ and songstress Anna Lunoe. The single sees her teaming up with fellow Aussie producers to funky effect and is accurately billed under Anna Lunoe & Friends.
The two originals on the single, the A-Side Real Talk and its flip, I Met You see Anna Lounoe collaborating with Touch Sensitive and Flume respectively. Touch Sensitive is Michael Di Francesco of Van She, so you know to expect some Tropical vibes. You may no be prepared for just how Tropical it really is though. It’s like a Bounty advert and Chicago House had offspring. Chopped up vocal and a big piano hook sit nicely alongside the island percussion in a ‘90’s House track that you won’t be able to help your self smiling to. Flume’s team-up, I Met You, brings more of a laid back Disco infused ElectroPop vibe to the EP. Indescribably summery, the twisted Moog synth line and hollow bass making for some seriously chilled Disco vibes. Anna’s intimate vocal draws you in to a pure feel good tune, in fact the whole EP is just about chilled summer good times. Pure part soundtrack stuff. The master of the Disco edit Late Nite Tuff Guy gets in on the action too with a Dub of I Met You. He works his Nu-Disco magic and sends the track straight to the danceflor. Check the EP for a mix from DJ HMC for some jump up party house.
