LUKA [Anthony Kasirivu]
My music is an extension of me...
Luka [producer/sonic thinker/remixer/sound designer] began with the production of music in 2004. in July 2008 Luka broke his neck in a freak rugby accident which has him wheelchair bound, after a year of physio and God’s grace Luka went from paralyzed from the neck down to regained function in the arms and upper body balance. Unable to use his fingers he uses a pencil strapped to his hand to producing, mix and master all his work. The sounds of Nature, the noises of our everyday movements and the ups and downs of life have influenced his direction of music. His production style is a fusion of lounge, nujazz, soulful hip-hop, deep dub, techno, tribal, electro, chilled out mood music and electro-acoustic.
Luka is based in Mafikeng, South Africa and is currently releasing digitally on all major online digital stores, from Traxsource, Juno, Itunes and Beatport, etc… under a number of international labels and his own founded label WE GO DEEP.

Luka is highly motivated and God fearing young man has added deep, warm and phat sounds to the house music. Luka is in studio's most days pushing the boundaries of his sound and has developed an ear for rich trippy sonics. His sounds are truly unique to him-self and form part of his self-identity and the person he has become today. Music is no joke to this producer; it is the air that keeps him breathing!
