The start of 2018 has picked up right where Andrei Rață left off at the end of 2017. Better known as Andrew Rayel, the trance producer released his second full length album Moments in mid May. Rayel then closed out the year releasing the first collection of remixes from the album. Now, just a month after that release, Rayel has revealed even more remixes in the form of Moments (Remixes – EP2).
On this second remix EP, the Moldovan producer enlisted Radion6, Whiteout, De Hofnar, and Chukiess & Whackboi to serve on remix duty. With these four additional remixes, we now have a total of 16 originals and 12 remixes spawned from the Moments album. Rayel is still playing out many of the tracks from the original album, and now has an even deeper collection to dive into to keep evolving his live set going forward.
Check out the second collection of remixes below.

San Francisco producer Luttrell just released his unforgettable debut album ‘Into Clouds’ which finds a home on Anjunadeep. The album will take him on tour, and you can find details here. Eric Luttrell got his break into music with The M Machine, launching his solo project in 2016.
The deeply personal 10-track album ‘Into clouds’ is about “doing your best to recognise and appreciate the beauty – both in the good times and the bad” according to Luttrell. The album includes vastly emotive tracks, each seemingly representing a color.
‘After All’ a whimsical and encapsulating track. Beginning with ethereal pads and vocal phrases, the song begins to sink me into the theme of the album. As the intro concludes, it builds into a beautiful soundscape, with compelling percussive elements surrounding the track and complementing it. With the song quieting down, bright plucks work in tandem with the pads, preparing me for what’s to come.
Following a very fitting intro, ‘Out of Me’ takes the torch as an already released single, familiarizing me with the theme of the album, and Luttrell’s sound. Chasing the familiar song, the mood setting, light, and whimsical ‘Still Dreaming’ takes center-stage treading lightly between the lines of dreamy and percussive tracks. The song is captivating, yet infectiously rhythmic.
‘Into Clouds,’ the fourth track on the album, comes in the form of another released single. Luttrell mentioned the track being a sort of a journey into the unknown, almost like an airplane in a storm. The track begins to reveal more about the album themes, as ‘Windowscene’ starts to play next. The pantone blue song has an eerie build-up, almost melancholic in a way. The mystery within the track didn’t strike me as suspenseful, rather comforting as lullaby plucks take away from the mystery emphasizing the birth of an idea. The track dives back into sharp and haunting pads, gracefully leading onto temperate strings.
The sixth spot on the album goes to ‘Layover,’ a “feel good song meant to be played outdoors on a sunny day,” chased by ‘Quiet Even Dark.’ The deep red track hosts Luttrell’s own vocals, verbally telling a story. The track significantly highlights the dominant themes within the album by contrasting all previous tracks within its darkness. The bursting plucks, gentle vocal, and deep percussion, masterfully navigate the theme of darkness without hopelessness. The track seems to offer solace in its own sound, retaining feelings of moving forward, learning, and becoming stronger.
‘Haunted Jungle Cruise,’ the moss green track is surrounding by its spaciously haunting pads. The percussive elements shine through the track, with a deep groovy bass-line. The song offers a transition between the sound of ‘Quiet Even Dark’ to ‘May 25th.’ The mystical and beautiful track personifies the phase of moving forward from darkness as introspection happens. Taking a moment to reflect on all that happened, accepting imperfections, and understanding where it all came from. It’s a profound moment on the album as the catharsis theme becomes abundantly clear. The track kicks off with vocal chops and off-beat plucks, melding with the kick giving off a swaying movement. The tune elicits the image of a flower for me, shriveled up at first, but then manages to bloom into a marigold flower.
The last song ‘Outro,’ seems to be the calm after the storm. The deep, submerging piano combines with a breathtaking soundscape to freeze a moment in time and space, allowing solitude and reflection without self judgement. The track almost feels meditative as the catharsis fades away, and all that’s left is harmony. Pure existence.
On January 26, I watched Luttrell perform a set at Newspeak Montreal. When the lights turned on, the club remained packed with people singing and clapping along to the music. People were joyously dancing, as ‘Into Clouds’ mesmerized them.
“I want listeners to make this album their own and attribute their personal experiences and feelings to the music.” -Luttrell

Nathan Phillips was cast for Skrillex and Damian Marley’s 2012 video.
As it turns out, a video clip making its rounds from an encounter that took place between Nathan Phillips and Covington Catholic High School students was not the first time his face was seen by millions. The Native American protestor also starred in the official music video for Skrillex‘s 2012 single “Make It Bun Dem” featuring Damian Marley.
Phillips’ character faced a much different adversary in the “Make It Bun Dem” video. The montage of clips depicts a city developer eyeing the elder’s place of residence, only to retreat when a younger character initiates a torrential downpour with what appears to be a rainmaking ritual.
Phillips’ run-in with the MAGA hat-wearing youths took place when anti-abortion rally March for Life converged with the Indigenous Peoples March on Friday, January 18th in Washington D.C. The matter of who initiated the confrontation remains a hotly debated subject, as does whether Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann was smiling or sneering at the activist.
Skrillex will resume touring with a performance at EDC Mexico in Mexico City in February 23rd, 2019.
