Monty Luke [Planet E Communications | Black Catalogue | Mothership]
Monty Luke is 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 – a force of creative ferocity and out-of-this-world vibe that so clearly characterizes Luke’s distinct style.
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, to new frontiers of the sonic mind. 2009 saw the release of yet another single, the nebular “Art, Love, and War.” With each track, Luke has expanded the horizons of techno music. 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, Moodymann, Derrick May, and more. In 2011, Monty launched his own imprint, BLACK CATALOGUE. The label is focused on raw, underground electronic music talent and will primarily be a stage for him to release music on his own terms. This hard work and determination led him to play this year's Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
Monty Luke is determined to bring his outer-galactic, unapologetic, jack track music to our world and back again. We are proud to present Monty as our feature at the 5th installation of Tar and Feathered.

JD [Soul People Music | C.O.M.E.]
JD is a fresh face in electronic music. The lad is a musical powerhouse who has along with Fred P launched a series of events here in NYC titled "C.O.M.E.". "C.O.M.E." is the acronym for “Cosmic Organisms Manifesting Energy". JD's work has been featured on the "C.O.M.E." compilation released on Fred P's Soul People Music imprint as a celebration to the launch of the new series. We here at Tar and Feathered feel that JD's best music has yet to be heard and are proud to have him take part in the 5th edition of our party.
