Since 2006, Anna Lunoe has been leaving a trail of exhausted and ecstatic crowds wherever she goes. Clubs throughout Australia have become her playground as promoters fly her from city to city each weekend to spin. She is a festival favorite with multiple appearances at Big Day Out, Splendour in the Grass, Parklife, Field Day, Falls Festival & more, steadily moving closer to the top of bill with each passing year. When international artists like Diplo, Daft Punk, M.I.A, Atrak or Soulwax come to town it’s more than likely Anna’s on support, throwing down a set that has the crowds and the main act talking for days.
In the first few months of 2011, Anna performed across Australia on the Big Day Out tour, completed a month long USA club tour, wowed Japan for MTV and announced her return to Splendour In The Grass [with her all-girl DJ crew Hoops] plus made a successful leap further into the production world. Her first original production, a disco-inspired collaboration with Wax Motif called ‘Love Ting’ reaching #12 on the national independent radio charts & spent a whopping 3 months in the Aria Dance charts. Anna has racked up a mountain of flyer miles playing world renowned parties throughout Asia, Europe and the U.S. Flashing lights in NYC, Mad Decent & Dim Mak joints in LA, Raves in Kansas City, and all the way across the Atlantic at Ed Banger soirees in Paris, Vice shows through the UK, Razzamatazz in Spain, and Rust in Copenhagen to name a few.
In 2009, we gave Anna the prestige of being the first female to curate one of our mixes, and the resulting CD, Clubbers Guide to 2010 mixed alongside Axwell & Hook N Sling went gold in the snap of a glowstick!
When international brands like Fendi, Prada, Louis Vuiton and Hugo Boss need music direction for their shows, whether in London, New York, Paris or Sydney, Anna can be found behind the decks looking as graceful as the models on the catwalk. Since getting her start on radio over 5 years ago, Anna has gone on to influence numerous fledgling DJs and steer clubbers towards breaking genres in the world of bassline & bashment sounds. At the end of 2010, Sydney magazine named her in their 100 most influencial people list, and she continues to host her popular radio slot on Tastemaker radio station FBi 94.5 each week.
So what gives Anna the know how to make the movers and shakers well, move and shake? It could be her vast musical knowledge drawn from a childhood spent raiding CD bargain bins and listening to records with her bass player father. Or maybe it’s the tireless trawling through all music outlets she can find. Perhaps it’s her refined skill of reading the dance floor, and the knack of blending the most compelling underground tunes into seamless hours of musical power that leaves even the most mainstream crowds frothing at the bit. Or just maybe it’s simply because Anna radiates unparalleled amounts of fun while on stage, smiling and singing along to whatever is blasting from the speakers. Whatever it is, lucky for you she can be found at your favorite club on any given night, dancing hard and breaking hearts, one spin back at a time.
