Anna Lunoe & Sleepy Tom Ready To ‘Stay Awake’

Hailing from Australia, Anna Lunoe is equal parts DJ, vocalist, songwriter and producer. She is a proven underground club killer with the unique ability to conquer the biggest of festival stages, while consistently delivering up genre bending productions that transcend EDM clichés. In a few short years, Anna Lunoe catapulted from being virtually unknown in the US, to performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Ultra, TomorrowWorld and Hard Fest.

Sleepy Tom, Canada’s latest homegrown success, is putting his unique stamp on modern day dance music. After he dropped ‘The Currency’, his firecracker of a debut EP on Fool’s Gold, he became an in-demand remixer adding stomping club muscle to official releases for Diplo, Zeds Dead, Martin Solveig, Porter Robinson and other festival favorites.

Anna and I wrote this start to finish in my Vancouver studio. We wanted to make a song that would be great to play at the beginning of our DJ sets. One that would hit the reset button on the crowd and lure them in, before bringing the energy back.” – Sleepy Tom

After teaming up in 2015 already on the massively supported ‘Pusher’, the duo now returns for another crowd pleaser, ‘Stay Awake‘. It’s a floor tune with headstrong raw vibes and catchy vocal work, already supported by The Chainsmokers, NERVO, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Firebeatz, Swanky Tunes, Pegboard Nerds and more.

Me and Sleepy tom had already made a track called ‘Pusher’ together, and we both still really love that track. We wanted to avoid making something similar to it thematically. We needed to break the formula we had and come at it from a totally different angle as to not be compared or compete with the last one. I came up with the spoken word intro idea one morning that week – just seemed like a fresh concept that I hadn’t seen done for a long time and that can be really epic when done right! I’m so happy with how it turned out!” – Anna Lunoe
