To date, DJ LUCK & MC NEAT are still the busiest UK Garage act on the scene and can be found at numerous weekly events across the UK & Internationally throughout the year.
DJ Luck & MC Neat are a British musical duo, comprising of Joel Samuels (aka DJ Luck) and Michael Rose (aka MC Neat), mainly performing a combination of House Music and UK Garage. They have had three consecutive UK Top 10 hits and are primarily known for, ‘A Little Bit Of Luck’, which started as a promotional dubplate, released at the price of £50! The track peaked at #9 in the UK charts. That same year, they released a cover of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Master Blaster (Jammin)’, re-titling it ‘Masterblaster 2000’, which featured the vocals of JJ, who is on a number of Luck & Neat’s songs. The track was their highest British chart entry, reaching #5 and their version of ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us’ reached #8. The duo also made an appearance on Top of The Pops performing their UK #12 track, ‘Piano Loco’.
After the initial three chart hits they enjoyed, the majority of their work, along with their debut album, was produced along with, or by, the underground musician Shy Cookie, who was responsible for the shift in their music from sample based to programmed (original) and live instruments, helping them to maintain underground credibility that in turn helped fuel their mainstream success.
