Fresh from the success of his collaboration with Matrix & Futurebound – “All I Know”, rising star Luke Bingham is back with another hit.  

His new single “Shut It Down” showcases Luke’s immense vocal talents riding a deep and pulsing bassline. It’s sexy, funky and heavy with feeling. With remixes by Mele, Steve Smart & Westfunk and Heavy Feet the track also features the massive MC talents of Krept and Konan – of south London duo Play Dirty – who have taken the UK underground by storm with their tight metaphors and inventive punchlines.   

Given it’s first play on the Ronnie Herel show, “Shut It Down” is being well supported at 1Xtra with Mistajam and DJ Target both championing the track.

A gifted singer and songwriter, Luke was snapped up by 3Beat in 2011 after he was added to the BBC Introducing playlist. He quickly scored a support slot with Trey Songz before being whisked off to LA with Radio 1 for a live performance on Sunset Boulevard. This was quickly followed by a performance at Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Carlisle. Not a bad start for an artist without a single release to his name.

More than just a lucky break, this chain of events was a product of hard work and single-minded determination. Luke’s songwriting shows an extraordinary flair and his often emotionally raw lyrics hide nothing. With his easy charm, natural swagger and sultry voice he is all set to take the world by storm.
