Classic Music Company

London, United Kingdom

Born from the friendship between Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter, Classic is above all else a “family” label; an assembly of diverse artists who refute convention but share in the motivation to satisfy only their own artistic intentions. Fulfilling their desire for a platform to share their left-of-centre house selections with the world, Classic began in 1994 as a vinyl imprint, starting at catalogue #100 and counting backwards to zero. Once at zero, Classic retreated briefly before coming back stronger, wonkier and with extended family in tow.
