MONTY LUKE ~ 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- 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, Planet E Communications, Luke received the encouragement to push ahead, tonewfrontiers of the sonic mind. 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. In 2011, Monty launched his own imprint, Black Catalogue. The label is focused on raw, underground electronic music talent- Monty Luke is determined to bring his outer-galactic, unapologetic, jack track music to our world and back again. The time is now!
JASON KENDIG ~ Jason Kendig obtained his first record player at age 5, his first synthesizer at age 7 and started buying dance records in Detroit in the early ‘90s. Since then, he has graduated to a master DJ as his record collection of House, Techno, Disco, and Italo continue to crowd his living space. Currently living in San Francisco, he is a member of the Honey Soundsystem collective, a group of gay DJ’s and producers who focus on raising the bar on dance music ever higher with their weekly party and specially curated one off events. As a producer, he focuses on analog synthesis and drum machines, pushing the vintage sound forward as he amasses and explores instruments with a 'hands-on' approach. His physical approach in the studio translates to deeply physical sounds on the dance floor. His tracks and remixes have been released on Honey Soundsystem’s home label HNYTRX, MR. INTL Records, Ecstasy Records and 3rd Strike Records.
CROMIE ~ A true selector and master of the turntable. Cromie has been cutting his teeth as resident Dj for the past year with Los angeles royalty Ronda International. As a producer Cromie and fellow cohort Sage Caswell have a recent release on Peach with remixes by Kyle Hall and Ghosts On Tape. Cromie is also one of the people behind the wildly successful event, States Of Being where he can be found dj'ing along side some of the worlds best Dj's
