After a busy month touring and having a minor leg accident in Tokyo, Luke has used his lack of mobility in the studio, smoking cigars and eating cake. Oh, and making music.
Currently elbow deep in Mother Rose production and 5 songs in. Building kick drums, recording banjos and kids toy instruments, expect electronic rock and roll, and nothing less.
Luke has also finished remixing a single for one of his peers, Woody McBride.
Woody owned the Organico label back in the 90’s that was responsible for releasing the seminal Sound Patrol album by Derrick Carter.
To add to his list of work, Luke is also continuing his These New Things project with Cellist Martin Radford. Having now enlisted the vocal talents of Richard Walters to the band, expect some Classical electronic space music, or something.
And last but not least. Classic. 6 weeks and counting.
Luke will be releasing the first single from his new solo album with remixes by Chez Damier and Mark E on vinyl with exclusive versions, and digital.

That’s all Folks.

Luke has been busy in the studio writing and producing.
Mainly finishing off The Digital Kid album which is all set for release on Classic in the new year, more news then. The Difference Engine Redux is the focus of the moment, and is out now both digitally and physically. Luke continues his residency in Italy at Moxa, and also does a series of gigs in Berlin and London with close friends Derrick Carter and Doc Martin.
Also studio happenings include working with friend Andy Neal and singer Ronnie King, on a single called Mellow Down. It’s a mid tempo affair that is partially live, partially electronic, and will be due for release on Little Creatures in the new year.

September was a ridiculously busy month back on the road. I was fortunate enough to go to San Francisco and play a private party in Mr S Leather’s Fetish Factory. The party was hosted by UK legend Linden C, and was a pre cursor to the opening of his new club, The Beat Box. Opening next year. Straight off the back of this I travelled to Johannesburg for the South African launch of the iPhone 4. Then straight back for the opening of my 5th of residency at the now legendary Moxa in Mantova, Italy. It was a really magical night actually.
This month sees the release of my new guise, Lukatron. The first single will be out on Quintessentials later this month and will be part of a primitive series. I wanted to return to the basic way of making dance music. Raw grooves using samples and primitive analogue methods.
This month will also see the promo of the re- release of my album on Rekids. The Difference Engine Redux features all the album tracks as individual records, and includes new versions of those that were featured. The album was only ever released as a continuous mix, so this will we be one for the DJ’s too.
I will be returning to Moxa this month with Derrick Carter and will also be back at Back 2 Basics for the first time in an age. Can’t wait!
Waiting on confirmation for a special party to coincide with album release, watch this space and save the date London Nov 5th
