Unfinished Business Volume 2 compiled & mixed by Luke Solomon
Unfinished Business Volume 2 continues Luke Solomon’s modest ambition to position himself as the DJ/shop assistant/curator you always dreamt about, unearthing rare gems and previously unavailable records from the likes of JM Jackmaster, Nail, Chez Damier, Louie Vega and plenty more.
Along with his recently re-launched Business As Usual: Live from the Washhouse radio show, Unfinished Business sees Solomon acting as informed selector for all your musical needs. A mixture of Classic and material external to the label, Unfinished Business distils his wandering sets, the conclusion of a honest belief that his years of experience should sit as a reason for – not against – reviving pure, DJ mixes.
This latest edition sees Solomon digging ever deeper into the vaults of house music, extracting – amongst others – a classic cut from the legendary label that was Tak. ‘Track 1’ is a rarity from Chez Damier recorded under his Bootleg With Love alias, and later sampled by a certain Derrick Carter on the masterpiece that was ‘Where You At?.
An unreleased version of the Nail classic ‘Hurt U’ also squirms its way into the collection, as well as some vinyl-only releases from Central Executives and Maurice & Charles that have yet to see official digital releases.
Unfinished Business Volume 2 is again a mix of old, new and somewhere in the middle, with Luke back as your friendly record shop assistant – hopefully turning you on to things you may not have had the chance to hear.
Unfinished Business Volume 2 compiled & mixed by Luke Solomon is out 26 October (vinyl sampler and digital) on Classic Music Company
