When it comes to cutting edge dance music, Canada isn't the first country that comes to mind.
One man who's changing that perception is Luke Fair. Chosen by Danny Howells and Deep Dish as their ‘future hero’ in DJ Mag’s Top 100 issue, the Toronto native has opened for DJ Sasha around the US and now has three compilations to his credit on top-flight labels ('In House We Trust 3' alongside Desyn Masiello on Yoshitoshi, 'OS_0.3' on Bedrock and 'Balance 011' on EQ Recordings). Luke still finds much love in releasing a constant flow of timeless promo and live mixes, which can be found on his Soundcloud page
. Before he arrives in the country, we got Luke to rifle through his record box and CD booklets for his favourite tunes.
