  • Luke Solomon is behind Unfinished Business Vol.1, a new mix series dropping on Classic in May. The Classic chief is no stranger to DJ compilations: his most recent effort, Cutting Edge, saw dual-release through D-Edge and Kompakt in 2012. His latest project will showcase a more thorough approach, placing Solomon in the role of "record shop assistant/curator", rather than simply club DJ. Hitting the shelves just as Solomon relaunches his Business As Usual: Live from the Washhouse radio show, the 30-track mix will feature cuts from across the US jock's three-decade career. “It has been interesting to watch dance music do almost a full circle over the last two decades” says Solomon. “So as well as showcasing newer, more contemporary house I also wanted to include music from my past that has translated to present day. The idea behind the series and radio show is that I will be your slightly odd, slightly off-centre, guide. But ultimately and most importantly, your friendly on-line record shop assistant.” Nestled in amongst classics from the likes of OBX ("It’s All We Know"), Floorplan ("Baby, Baby") and Sundowners ("Jungle Line") are records from a slew of new-school producers, including Inkswel, Matthew Styles and Boe & Zak. Solomon himself features frequently, whether as remixer ("The Calling"), collaborator alongside Roual Galloway ("Dance With Me (Wild Mix) or all alone ("You Rest Easy"). Tracklist 01.
