Following several years of putting out various singles and EPs, Luttrell has released almost exclusively with James Grant and Above & Beyond’s Anjunadeep imprint. Now the San Francisco production talent makes a return to the label, this time bringing his debut long player, Into Clouds. The ten-track record serves an impressive buffet of well polished club gems, uplifting melodic rhythms and multiple top lines which reach into both the trademark heart-hugging style of Anjuna’s
catalogue and the creatively manipulated, more groove focused chops. The album outro even gives us a completely downtempo piano arrangement to seal the deal. It’s an album that manages to stick to an agenda, while not sounding like it’s been thrown together by collecting a bunch of project files together from a hard drive. Luttrell’s approach and Anjuna’s quality filter really stick to their guns on this one and the album cover even pays tribute to the producers signature facial hair, (which you can see above).
Where to start:
‘After All’ – Beautiful chords on the album opener
‘Quiet Even Dark’ – Roaring horn-like synths and a transcending topline
‘Still Dreaming’ – Clean cut drum sounds surrounded by a ton of melody
