Luke Solomon is without doubt one of the most loved and well-respected people in world of underground house. Having started Classic Music Company with Derrick Carter back in 1995 thanks to a shared love of 'unusual music', the label is widely considered as one of the most important imprints within the genre, home to releases from the likes of Blaze, Matthew Herbert, DJ Sneak and countless other house legends. In recent years, Classic's family has welcomed some newer members, including acts such as Honey Dijon, Eli Escobar and Red Rack 'Em. With the upcoming release schedule looking stronger than ever before, 2017 is shaping up to be Luke's biggest year to-date as a DJ, producer and the owner of Classic.
Luke Solomon: "I feel absolutely honoured to be considered part of a family of like-minded music people that I consider to be friends as well as colleagues.Working with Defected has really helped me spread my wings as an A&R man, and for that I feel hugely grateful."
