Anna Lunoe‘s reverence within the house music scene has grown to panoramic proportions in recent years.

Lunoe’s abilities to bless a party with four-on-the-floor rhythms and off-kilter signature are inimitable. And she’s been repping her approach to the staple sound long before many new house ascendants were even legally allowed into a club. Yet her energy is that which house music was founded upon: acceptance and unfettered positivity in regards to moving the needle. She’s excited for newcomers and partygoers alike to discover her—and more importantly—get down with her.

For those unfamiliar with Lunoe’s prowess behind the decks, she just released her full set from the fall 2019 edition of CRSSD Festival. Give it listen and see what the festival’s veteran Hyperhouse matriarch is all about.

Anna Lunoe and Nina Las Vegas finally link for collaboration 15 years in the making, ‘One Thirty’ [Stream]

Anna Lunoe and Nina Las Vegas finally link for collaboration 15 years in the making, ‘One Thirty’ [Stream]Anna Lunoe Nina Las Vegas One Thirty

It seems absurd that this didn’t happen sooner, but now we finally have a proper collaboration between two of Australia’s most beloved electronic exports—Nina Las Vegas and Anna Lunoe. The longtime friends, who shared similar trajectories coming up as dance tastemakers down under before both finding global breakthroughs, had never actually done a joint track together. Though, that all changed with “One Thirty.” And as you’d imagine, it’s a certified club burner that wraps the two curatorial queens’ unmistakable energies into one complementary mix.

“One Thirty” lands as a dual release via Nina Las Vegas’ own NLV Records imprint and Lunoe’s longtime home base Mad Decent. Speaking on the track’s obvious chemistry, NLV explains,

“It only took 15 years of friendship and [collaborating] in every other aspect of our life to finally build the courage to work on a song together. With so much shared between us already, it might have been the easiest day in the studio for each of us.”

It took a decade and a half for the Beats 1 and Triple J selectors to link on a song, though, now we can say it was well worth the wait, and hopefully there’s a lot more from these two underway. Listen below.

Exclusive: Anna Lunoe looks back on summer season with retrospective mix ahead of CRSSD returnAnna Lunoe

San Diego’s biannual waterfront who’s who of electronic hot topics, CRSSD festival, will return September 28-29 for its fall 2019 arm, featuring a both a plethora of its cornerstone house and techno talent, plus a number of avant-garde electronic—including Richie Hawtin, Moon Boots, Kaskade, Hot Chip, and Anna Lunoe.

Lunoe, a longtime CRSSD contender who’s played both the fall and spring editions of the painfully cool West Coast affair, is looking ahead to her Sunday slot at The Palms stage. To prepare, she’s looking back on this past summer, packing some of her fondest anthems of the bygone festival season into a half-hour mini mix. Lunoe uses the 30-minute display to prove she’s down for the get down, and she’ll be holding no sonic punches this weekend at Waterfront Park. Accenting the mix with both Lunoe originals (“303” and “Badass”) and crowd-corralling stompers like Damien N-Drix’s “Let It Ring,” the recent Mad Decent habitué gives listeners a tantalizing taste of her resounding DJ capabilities.

“This mix is representative of the sets I was playing at the beginning of summer at big festivals,” Lunoe says of the selects.”But I plan on bringing some new vibes to CRSSD. The crowd there is always so ready to go deeper. I have no idea where I’ll go with it yet. Time will tell.”

Tickets to CRSSD are completely sold out.

Anna Lunoe lays down a scorching score to the ‘Right Party’ on latest EP [Review]

Anna Lunoe lays down a scorching score to the ‘Right Party’ on latest EP [Review]IMG 9886 1

Besides being a relatively new mother to her toddler, Willa, the Australian-born Anna Lunoe is also a diligent and tactful mother of dance beats. The HYPERHOUSE heroine’s twofold finesse both behind the decks and in the studio has earned her accolades in the form of a Skrillex-championed OWSLA signing, collaborations with dance music majesty like Chris Lake and Flume, as well as her watershed billing as the first-ever female solo act to take the EDC Vegas main stage under siege in 2016.

In the “Stomper” sponsor’s latest display of dance-floor irreverence, Lunoe has shared her four-part aural road map to the Mad Decent-housed Right Party. The EP is an all-out Lunoe-powered affair, complete with her own get-down-friendly vocal cuts, which encircle her galloping bass lines like the designated painfully cool girl compelling the party like child’s play (“Follow me / I’ll take ya’ to the right party”).

The previously released cuts from the EP, “303” and “What You Need,” featuring Wuki, arrive alongside two brand new offerings, “Right Party” and “Creep.” While “Creep” adds to the festivity’s more texturized foliage, with its crowded-party-themed chatter samples and squawky analog melodies, “What You Need” wastes no time reaching its raucous objective, with a teeth-grinding-reminiscent (in the most mellifluous way possible) bass line and slapping percussion to boot. And perhaps the most delectable of the four-course meal is “303,” which sees Eminem’s iconic “Without Me” vocal hook morphed and molded to fit Lunoe’s devilishly danceable agenda (“This looks like a job for me / So, everybody just follow me / If you want to get a little tipsy / We can dance to the beat of the 303”).

The EP is less of a dramatic departure than it is a coquettish dose of sonic experimentation within the household mode she’s already explored so voraciously. If there was any ambivalence remaining as to whether or not Lunoe can command a dance floor with the same ease and ferocity as John Bonham can bang a drum, there shouldn’t be after attending the Right Party.

Weekend Rewind: Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland claim EDC history as first female solo main-stage acts

Weekend Rewind: Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland claim EDC history as first female solo  main-stage actsEDC LV 2016 Kinetic Field

With another chapter of EDC Las Vegas underway, Dancing Astronaut looks back at a watershed moment in the festival’s 20+ years running: Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland taking the main stage for ransom in 2016. They were the first solo female acts to do so.

Lunoe, known for her unorthodox—looney, if you will—strain of house and club stylings, isn’t necessarily your run-of-the-mill main stage artist; she herself attested the notion in an interview with EDC organizers at Insomniac shortly following the momentous appearance. Nevertheless, the OWSLA-aligned, Australian-bred Lunoe dug deep into her HYPERHOUSE crates for what proved a scene-altering set under the Electric Sky, despite some minor sound interference from the festival’s audio techs letting the opening ceremony music bleed in. But Lunoe, sleep-deprived and still acclimating herself to brand new CDJs, bulldozed through the accidental interruption like the tireless talent she’s proven herself to be behind the decks for over a decade.

Another culturally disruptive (for the better) Aussie and classically trained cellist, by the name of Alison Wonderland, further solidified the long-time-coming female ferocity sweeping over EDC, taking the main stage under her more-than-adept wing that Sunday. The melodic/experimental trap talent’s indelible legacy amongst women in dance music is still ever-blossoming. In 2018, she took home the highest paycheck in Coachella history to be issued to a female DJ, following her Sahara Tent performance, which amassed over 20,000 awe-stricken spectators. An outspoken advocate for mental health, Wonderland also secured an auspicious cover story this year for Billboard, wherein she traced her often tumultuous rise to EDM superstardom, and accredited music as her most vital vessel for forging human connection.

Here’s to these two torrentially talented tastemakers—as well as all the other convention-confronting women in dance music carving out a path for the often-overlooked female talent across the globe. Though the path is still largely untrodden, as Wonderland this year serves as the only female act on the main stage roster. The EDC Vegas side stages want for naught, however, as some of the most in-demand women in dance music (and acts in general), including REZZ, TOKiMONSTA, and Amelie Lens are effectively offsetting the overwhelmingly male 2019 makeup.

Anna Lunoe releases ‘303’ remixes

Anna Lunoe releases ‘303’ remixesMail 1

Anna Lunoe is an artist who has remained consistent throughout her entire career. Over the last decade, she’s put out dozens of releases, each of them adhering to her upbeat and unapologetic style of house music which has since been branded as “Hyperhouse.”

Some of the labels that are fortunate enough to have Lunoe in their catalog are Fool’s Gold, OWSLA and Spinnin’ Deep. To certain pursuers of dance music, these imprints might not seem like the first choice for house releases. However, Lunoe’s dedication to her craft and consistency as an artist have earned her respect across the entire musical spectrum. This is a quality she shares with Diplo, who recently signed Lunoe’s latest offering, “303”, to Mad Decent. Now the “303” remix package is out with four new takes on Lunoe’s Eminem-tinged bass-house cut.

This first in the package is the Ninajirachi remix, which takes “303” farther from the traditional bounds of house and dives deep into clamoring, percussive breaks. Next on the remix duties is Flava D who infused the track with his signature gritty, low-end wubs. Seasoned house producer Jay Robinson also provided a new take on “303”, this time embracing the title of the track in true form with a jacking 303 groove. Finally to close is the Odd Mob remix which adopts a more minimal flavor, integrating subtle pads alongside ear-catching blips and bleeps.

The remix package lends itself to that versatility that Lunoe has defined over the years through her Hyperhouse brand. At one point or another, Lunoe has produced a track similar in sound to each of the “303” remixes. This, in turn, makes it very likely to hear any of the four in her sets across the upcoming festival season.

Anna Lunoe talks motherhood on the move, delivers frenetic Mother’s Day playlist [Q&A]

While motherhood and globe-trekking DJing may not be innately synonymous, Anna Lunoe ensures the two endeavors never grow mutually exclusive.

It wasn’t long after the multi-talented “Bass Drum Dealer” migrated from her native Australia to LA that she was embraced by some of the most eminent faces in dance music—most decisive of these being Skrillex himself, who quickly brought her to his NEST HQ imprint back in 2014. Since then, she’s made auspicious appearances at Coachella, Ultra, Lollapalooza, and secured sanction as the first female solo female act to perform at EDC Las Vegas’s main stage. In addition to propagating her hectic shade of the electronic rainbow, which she aptly dubs HYPERHOUSE, Lunoe has been merging music and motherhood since giving birth in 2017 to her baby girl, Willa.

Lunoe sat down with Dancing Astronaut to divulge into her maternal balancing act, the ways in which her daughter has altered her career, and new developments on the music front. And in honor of Mother’s Day 2019, she’s cooked up an unequivocally looney, hyper-as-heck playlist consisting of her favorite selects of the moment, including a few of her own most potent recent concoctions, of course.

What’s it like balancing mom/DJ/tour life?

It’s intense, a constant learning curve for everyone but it’s been insanely powerful and transformative for me personally. I approach everything in my life with more power and perspective.

How (if at all) has motherhood impacted your sound/you as an artist in general?

I’m more focused on what I want to do. There are constraints on everything, limitations to how much time I have to do things, to travel, what shows I say yes to, etcetera. I am forced to be very picky about how I spend my time. Ultimately, I think it’s made me a more sonically consistent artist, more intentional and way tougher.

Will you raise your daughter on mainly electronic music? Or where do your other sonic preferences lie?

No way; she listens to everything. But I do admit she is strangely into electronic, probably due to her heavy summer touring schedule in utero.

What does your mom think about your career/your music? 

She is slightly miffed, confused but ultimately proud and happy that I have a passion in life and a focus. I think she would like it if I moved a little closer to them, though.

Any new music or fun developments in the works you want to speak on? 

So much. There’s a new EP around the corner, Hyper House live stream by the end of the month, Red Bull remix lab, weekly radio, big summer festival plays and I have a little surprise for the fall too, if i can get it all done, that is.
