A legendary figure on the UK house music scene, Luke Solomon has returned to the limelight this Autumn with the relaunch of his and Derrick Carter’s revered Classic label. He first made his name with the legendary Space parties with Kenny Hawkes in our fair capital city, running at the intimate Bar Rumba in Picadilly Circus from 1995 to 2002 – one of London’s best-respected underground house nights that brought names as big as Francois K, Dave Angel and Joe Smooth to the tiny basement club.
But it’s Classic that has earned him a place in the global house music conscience. Starting at catalogue number 100 and working their way back down to 1, he and Carter brought us classics from DJ Sneak, Isolee, Freeform Five, Tiefschwarz, Markus Nikolai and tons more – and their decision to relaunch the imprint with remixes of back catalogue tracks and new productions has been welcomed with open arms.
