Luttrell explores his musical depth in ‘Generate’ [EP Review]
San Francisco-based Luttrell is a relatively new member of the Anjunadeep family, but his ability to fashion entrancing, fell-good progressive house has already stood out since the release of his debut single on the label, “Away.” Having released his Need You EP and a string of remixes and original pieces since, the producer returns with an extended body of work that once more offers a deeper look at his musical mind.
Generate sees Luttrell exploring various shades of his genre of choice, beginning on a swift, energized note with its title track. After taking the listener through fields of airy synthesizers and clever vocal edits, he slows things down in the dreamy “Float,” which flows through retro-inspired melodic bursts and conjures summery imagery while listening.
“Walking Dream” takes things off 4/4 for a bit and into the world of breaks – Luttrell artfully navigates this soundscape with cheery synth progressions and subtle bass. “Daylight” ends the EP on a lush note with enticing layers of percussion and atmospheric strings playing a central role.
