After a spell working in a local record shop and as a part-time fishmonger he got a job at Freetown records, which led him to long lasting relationships with Rob Mello and Kenny Hawkes. Rob took Luke under his studio wing and taught him the ropes, together they went on to release for both Freetown and Prescription Underground - it was through Prescription that he got introduced to a certain Derrick L. Carter. A bond was immediately formed and through their passion for House music and crazy late nights they formed the legendary Classic Recordings.
