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.
The big news is that Classic is back this month. Re-issued
remastered back catalogue, plus new material from both Derrick and
Luke. Luke will be releasing the first single from his new album,
Timelines. The song is titled Interceptor, features Natalie Broomes
on vocals, and will be remixed by Chez Damier, Chris Duckenfield
and Mark E. In other news, Luke has been continuing production work
on new band, Mother Rose. 4 songs in and it is really taking shape.
