The ever so smooth and sanguine Luttrell has returned to Anjunadeep for his third EP, Intergalactic Plastic, with the deep house/techno label.
The handlebar mustachioed San Fransisco native formerly served as one half of OWSLA-affiliated The M Machine, before hatching his solo venture in 2016. Luttrell’s sound is characterized by crisp, melodic techno and highly visceral deep house — not entirely divergent from the emotive energy that fueled The M Machine.
The three-track EP (with two extended cuts) radiates Luttrell’s kaleidoscopic, dreaming-with-eyes-wide-open sound that is profoundly emblematic of Anjunadeep as a whole. The celestial title track, “Intergalactic Plastic” sets the tone for the journey-simulating project, with its ethereal chord progressions and echoing, astral-themed synths. “What You Are” is an atmospheric club track, with an airy female vocal and subdued bassline. Finally, the utopia Intergalactic Plastic sets out in search of is reached with “Wake Me Up Tomorrow.” Fans first tasted its breezy deep house bliss when it was included in the Anjunadeep 09 compilation album back in 2017.
Luttrell is scheduled to accompany both Above & Beyond and Lane 8 on their respective tours, as well as Anjunadeep’s debut festival Open Air in August.
