This week’s Source to Cycle podcast comes from a British DJ and producer who has made a huge impression on the music scene since his involvement since the early 1990s. Starting out in London, working for the Freetown label, and DJing both in clubs and on pirate radio, Luke Solomon quickly found himself at the centre of London’s resurgent house scene, alongside the late, great Kenny Hawkes. Promoting the now legendary Space night at the capital’s Bar Rhumba, Luke hooked up with Chicago DJ Derrick Carter, and the kindered spirits launched the Classic Music Company in 1995. The label has since gone on to release music from the likes of Tiefschwarz, Isolee, DJ Sneak, Herbert, Gemini, Roy Davis Jnr and countless others.
Luke also makes up one half of Freaks, on his other label Music For Freaks, as well as solo projects on Rekids, Little Creatures and Fullbar, still as busy as he always has been. Forthcoming releases from Luke include the mix compilation 'Unfinsihed Business Vol 1' on Classic, singles for Local Talk and Toytonics, and a new Freaks album for Rebirth.
