Former 1/3 The M-Machine producer Eric Luttrell released his latest single Into Clouds today. It’s also the title track from his forthcoming solo debut album due February 1 on Anjunadeep. Into Clouds is dreamlike yet infectously groovy. One of the more dancefloor cuts off the LP, this fresh new single showcases Luttrell’s distinct sound design style and well thought out melodies. Luttrell will support the album with his most extensive solo headline tour of North America to date; launching at the end of January and running through March.
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 recognizable 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.
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.
‘Into Clouds’ arrives after 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.
Into Clouds is be available to pre-order now via Anjunadeep, digitally, on CD and on 2×12” Vinyl.
