After a break over the holidays, our first selections of 2019 are for an old friend Luke who passed away a few years ago. As a teenager he was constantly playing everything from Antipop Consortium to Nick Drake, Vincent Gallo to Low End Theory. His curiosity for sounds and life in general was and still is infectious.
