Monty Luke is a revolution in sound - a forever push towards forward thinking; a man unafraid to explore the space beyond the assumed boundaries of electronic dance music. What began in Brooklyn quickly spread, as Monty spun his way across the west coast, honing in on a raw, brain-pumping sound that would catapult him into the great unknown.
Monty Luke began producing in the early 2000s, releasing "What U Feel" alongside Sam Urton under the Loopwreckas moniker. Shortly thereafter, Monty struck again, this time 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 characterizes Luke's distinct style.
In mid 2008, it seemed fitting Monty would relocate to Detroit, the birthplace of techno music. He began work with his mentor, techno legend Carl Craig, and produced "Panik Attack," the un-nerving, hypnotic follow-up to "Paranoid." Managing the development of Craig's home-based label, Plane 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." With each track, Luke has expanded the horizons of techno music. 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. Luke is also a member of Detroit Premiere Artists (DPA), a booking agency concentrated on the modern sound of Detroit, featuring such artists as Kevin Saunderson, Stacey Pullen, Greg Gow, and more. You can also hear Luke monthly, on his Scion A/V show "Wave of the Future."
With upcoming releases on Planet E, Full Flavor, Blank Artists and Mineral Musica, Monty Luke is determined to bring his outer-galactic, unapologetic, jack track music to our world and back again. The time is now.
