Be FreeA song written next to the Castle Made Of Sand that inspired Jimi Hendrix. I could feel his sprit in me as I wrote this. Recorded live on All FM.
Sun Comes Up
Sun Comes UpWritten in Benificio in the South of Spain, a song about how small we are on the grand scale of existence.
TahirThis is a track I produced with a private student. Tahir, a taxi driver from Bolton booked sessions with me and over the course of a few weeks we created this track. It was all his ideas, I helped him to get exactly what he was wanting. I recorded, mixed and mastered it all. I can do this for you for £25 an hour. I can record full band tracks, electronic music, acoustic music, singles , EP's and albums.
QuanticWe're all quantic at the end of the day, But that is just the life we play We're all fools And that's the life we choose
Sun Comes Up
Sun Comes UpI wrote this track living in the forest of Benificio and recorded it at Cut Records in Valencia.

The Suicide Song Demo
The Suicide Song DemoHere is a demo of a new song. It is purely a demo. It has taken me a few hour to put it together without the correct mics. It's a bit off in places because I was just trying to get it done.
BeliefI wrote this track after just getting back from Malawi for the first time. The chorus "Belief is the most important thing, Belief in yourself" I wrote while in Africa and knew it would be a song. The rest of the lyrics and music came out like they already existed. This recording is the first ever recording out of the new studio I have set up in Lilongwe, Malawi. Recorded and produced in partnership with Kelvin Gumbi (NyalaMusik). Kelvin will be running the studio and I expect this track to be the first of many as this studio grows over the coming years.

Music Is A memory
Music Is A memoryThis song was recorded live on my radio show, Luke Slater & Friends live every Thursday at 7pm(GMT) on USUKOZradio. The song was originally written last Summer 2010 while I was part of the magical band The Doobeeaans. It is a song about questioning our perception of reality. I occasionally get visions of songs and feel they are coming from a place not of this dimension. Our dreams feel so real who is to say they're not. http://usukozradio.webs.com/
Last NightI recorded this song a few months ago with the help of my good friend Charles Swift as producer. This song is about a time in my life when I couldn't let go to a girl. One day I would have no time for her and would end the relationship, only to wake up in the morning to realise I had made a mistake. It shows how quickly a man's mind can change. I hope you like this music ans find it relates to a time in your life too. Feel free to leave comments :)
