Luke Solomon build his foundations in the early 90s starting off behind a record counter at Stop on By in Barnet. Moving on to the legendary Freetown Records and then on to Narcotic Records for Roger Sanchez he worked in PR and promotions. During this time, he gained a residency at London’s ground breaking pirate radio station Girls FM where he met his dearly departed friend Kenny Hawkes. Together they set up the London mid-weeker Space where they invited people like Chez Damier and Derrick Carter.
Meanwhile Luke had become close to Derrick Carter and together they set up the Classic Music Company which is currently enjoying a huge renaissance. Amongst all of this Luke began his studio career forming the house music duo “Freaks.”
Fast forward over 25 years where Luke Solomon has been guiding the good ship Classic through a seminal year and working closely as A&R with Simon Dunmore at both Glitterbox and Defected.
Over the last few years he has been cementing his position as a Producer, working with Horse Meat Disco on their forthcoming album on Glitterbox, and with Honey Dijon on her second artist album forthcoming on Classic in 2020 and writing with the legendary Kathy Sledge on brand new material.
Luke has also kept his London residency status holding court at the sadly closed Savage Disco @ Metropolis and moving now to a permanent residency at XOYO in London.
He also continues to work on solo music, currently enjoying success with his studio band “Powerdance.”
