Those words come from the title track of Anna Lunoe’s bold 2014 release Bass Drum Dealer (B.D.D.), and they pretty much define her as an artist: a tough contender in the boy’s club of international DJs, demanding to be noticed for her musical innovation, pure performance power and seemingly endless energy.
Hailing from Australia, Anna Lunoe is equal parts DJ, vocalist, songwriter and producer, she’s been a radio show host as a DJ, she is as an underground club killer with the unique ability to conquer the biggest of festival stages, whilst consistently delivering up genre bending productions that transcend EDM clichés, laced with her distinct, crystalline vocals.
How Lunoe catapulted from being virtually unknown in the US, to performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Ultra, TomorrowWorld & Hard Fest in a few sweaty and sleepless years is a testament to the phrase ‘cream always rises to the top’. Arriving in Los Angeles from Sydney in 2012, just as her Anna Lunoe & Friends EP dropped, it didn’t take long before she was invited to play shows with the likes of Disclosure, Diplo, Duke Dumont, Clockwork, and TEED. The Future Classic EP made a splash –the effervescent house collaboration with Touch Sensitive, ‘Real Talk’ hit #1 on the Beatport Indie Dance Chart and stayed there… for four months. The B-side track was I Met You, a slow jam fantasy made with a then-unknown producer named Flume. Two million hits on YouTube later I Met You introduced Anna as a unique new voice in dance music.
Garnering critical acclaim and major press in the likes of Fader, Complex, Billboard, Vogue, Nylon, Interview, LA Weekly, and most of the dance & electronic press, Anna has become a resolute mainstay.
Anna’s international success continues, as she currently has a weekly show on Beats 1, Apple’s 24/7 radio station, broadcasting live to over 100 countries around the world.
