Monty Luke has a long standing in electronic music having been releasing material since the turn of the century.
Monty Luke began producing in the early 2000s, releasing ‘What U Feel’ alongside Sam Urton under the Loopwreckas moniker. Shortly thereafter, Monty struck again with Stompy Hi-Fi resident DJ Tasho. Released on Mothership Music, the track, ‘Paranoid,’ showcases Luke’s punk rock mentality – a force of creative ferocity and out-of-this-world vibe that so clearly characterises Luke’s distinct style.
By 2008, Monty Luke relocated to Detroit where began work with Carl Craig, producing ‘Panik Attack,’. Managing the development of Craig’s home-based label, Planet E Communications, Luke received the encouragement to push ahead, to new frontiers of the sonic mind. 2009 saw the release of yet another single, the nebular ‘Art, Love, and War.’ During 2010, he was a part of the D25 World Tour, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Detroit Techno, alongside DJ’s such as Theo Parrish, Kenny Dixon Jr., Derrick May, and more.
Now, Monty Luke returns with today’s premiere, ‘Dystopian Visions’, off the forthcoming EP of the same name. The track opens up and lays the foundations for a fully tripped-out 3-track release, as Luke employs spaced out arpeggios and smooth strings alongside dusty raw rhythms to radiantly display the influence of his current home, Detroit.
“Dystopic Visions” is available 16 December on Dogmatik
