Following up to his first album taster ‘My Friend The Sun’, Luttrell’s latest offering, instrumental deep cut ’Some Other Time’, is the second single lifted from his forthcoming second album ‘Lucky Ones’. Aiming to be a crowd pleaser and firm feature of Luttrell’s DJ sets over the past is months, the track has been dropped to crowds from San Francisco to Fiji to London.
After a big 2019, which saw Eric Luttrell release his debut solo album ‘Into Clouds’ on Anjunadeep, the San Francisco native makes a return to the UK imprint with his second LP ‘Lucky Ones’. Kicking off this spring, he embarks on his most extensive headline tour to date, with 23 North American shows revealed so far, which includes a performance at the Coachella festival.
First breaking into electronic music as part of the OWSLA-affiliated trio The M Machine, Eric launched his solo project in 2016 with the ‘Need You’ EP, while Anjunadeep catalogue favourites ‘Generate’ EP and Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World 'Intergalactic Plastic’ followed in quick succession. Now with his debut album under his belt, which reached #2 on iTunes Dance Album charts in USA and Canada and #8 in the Official UK Dance Album Charts, his brand of quirky melodic house and techno has showcased his name as possibly one of the scene’s new talents; opening doors to working with Moby, Tycho, Jai Wolf, and Blossoms all of whom commissioned remixes from him.
Whereas ‘Into Clouds’ examined the transitional periods of life, and was reflective of his mindset at the time of recording, ‘Lucky Ones’ is a celebration. Anchored in themes of gratitude, the LP is a collection of 11 cuts which see him draw from a deep pool of personal influences, including the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and The Prodigy, his love for San Francisco and Burning Man, time spent as a student in Berlin, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, and even winning the US TV game show, The Price Is Right.
‘Lucky Ones’ is available to pre-order now via Anjunadeep, digitally, on CD and on limited edition 2x12” Vinyl with Luttrell motif die-cut slipcase.
It’s out 13 March.
