Business As Usual Live From The Wash House: Luke Solomon

In 2008 I started a series of radio shows with fellow Freak and host, Jonny Rock. The idea was that we talked nonsense, and played loads of records that we liked, that people may or may not have heard. The original format was based around vinyl. Digital started to creep in, then CD’s, the 7 inches, then YouTube rips, and so on. But the idea remained the same, that we were sharing our discoveries with an audience.

Flash forward a few years and I started to record ‘Live From The Wash House’ on a weekly basis. Again, I talked nonsense and helped music that I loved, get heard, discovered and hopefully bought.
After a year of hosting the show weekly, I decided to put it to bed for a while.

That brings us bang up to the present day and the birth of a new show – The Wash House – subtitled, Business as Usual, because… well, it is. But this time it will be part of a grander scheme of things. Expanding on the original concept I will once again be playing dance music that you may or may not have heard, but this time said music will be readily available, if pointed in the right direction of course. The idea is for you to use me as your selector slash shop assistant in a virtual record store. Not only will I be shouting about both old and new music, but I will also be following it up with a series of compilations to be released on my label, Classic throughout the year.

I will be your slightly odd, slightly off-centre, guide. But ultimately and most importantly, your friendly on-line record shop assistant.
