“I’m your high-heel killer, I’m your midnight thriller, I’m your bass drum dealer – and I always deliver.”
Those are the opening lyrics of Anna Lunoe’s bold 2014 release, Bass Drum Dealer (B.D.D.), and the words that define her as an artist: a tough contender in the ever evolving landscape of international DJs,demanding to be noticed for her musical innovation, pure performance power and seemingly endless energy.

Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles from Sydney with just a few suitcases and a new EP – Lunoe’s made asplash. The effervescent house collaboration with Touch Sensitive titled Real Talk ended up at #1 on theBeatport Indie Dance Chart for four months straight. I Met You, the B-side track of her EP featured a then little-known producer named Flume, and currently has over 3 million views on YouTube.
Proving it was no fluke, next up was the forward thinking bass house bomb, Breathe, on Fools Gold/Ultra followed by the undeniable club weapon Bass Drum Dealer (B.D.D.), which was picked up by Skrillex for The Nest and remains the label’s biggest release to-date. Zane Lowe then premiered, Feels Like, Anna’scollaboration with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs on BBC Radio 1, which gained plenty of UK specialistradio support. Then between major collaborations, an impressive festival run and a 2-month US tour withThe Weeknd, Anna’s All Out EP debuted #4 on the iTunes Dance Chart.
