Monty Luke brings a funky, stripped down and eclectic sound from the underground of American dance music. Born in Brooklyn and raised in Los Angeles, his background is the genesis of the broad musical scope he showcases as both a DJ and a producer. After gaining experience DJing up and down the west coast, Monty moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he settled into a groove. In mid-2008, Luke made a move to Detroit to work with his mentor, techno legend Carl Craig. As Craig's right hand man at Planet E Communications, Luke received the freedom and encouragement that led him back into the studio to produce.
