Last fall, EW premiered Anna Lunoe’s track “Heartbreak in Motion.” On Thursday we caught up with the Australian DJ/producer—who’s just stepped off her sold out Ship2Ship tour and “Pusher” collaboration with Sleepy Tom—to premiere a sultry, R&B-tinged CLOVDS remix of her single, which she loves, “I actually started out as a hip-hop DJ so for me, I always enjoy it when someone flips my song in that kind of direction—it sort of speaks to a different part of my brain.”
It’s almost impossible to find an EDM track that doesn’t immediately spawn a deluge of remixes, but according to Lunoe, that’s the beauty of the innately collaborative genre. “The joy of remixing is that you don’t know what people are going to take from it and bring to the table. I love collaborating with my writing for the same reason—everybody has so many different sides to them and if you can sit down with them and they can say, ‘You know what I really like about you? I like this part of your musical taste.’ And you go, ‘Ah! Cool! Let’s go in that direction.’ It’s interesting to me.”
But she also swears EDM isn’t the most collaboration-heavy in the industry. “Trust me, pop music is the biggest. Every single pop music song is written by about 15 people. It’s just usually in dance music we actually say who collaborated or should be credited.”
With all that in mind, stream the R&B-leaning version below.
