The pair that need no introduction, Joel Samuels and Michael Rose, better known as the MOBO Award winning garage duo DJ Luck & MC Neat, have been making stone cold UKG classics since 1999.
The london duo’s nearly 20 year career has been a successful one; they have enjoyed three consecutive top 10 hits in the UK at the turn of the millennium, including their famous track “A Little Bit of Luck”, which started as a promotional dubplate back in ‘99. Since then, their shift from sample based to live and original instruments has helped drive their underground credibility and fueled their mainstream success.
We can’t wait for their set on our stage in August at 51st State Festival, so to whet your appetite for what looks set to be one of the most important UKG events of the year, here are our top hits from the dynamic pair.
First, let’s travel back to the year 2000 when the twosome smashed the UK charts with their cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Master Blaster (Jammin)”, “Master Blaster 2000”. Also sampling the All-Star Remix of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” which itself samples "As Long As I've Got You" by The Charmels. Sample inception!
Next up is another classic from 2000, “Ain’t No Stoppin Us”, featuring JJ which climbed to #8 on the charts.
Then take a listen to the track made famous by the pair’s Top of the Pops appearance in 2001: "Piano Loco".
Another 2001 classic featuring American pop icon Ari Gold. Here is "I'm All About You".
“With a Little Bit of Luck”, Luck & Neat will play this iconic UKG record with cool strings and Neat’s rapid MCing. What a start to the bank holiday!
