Sole Essential is the most well-known pseudonym of South African born Record Producer / Radio Personality / Remixer Luther Lempe.

Under a plethora of other monikers including Luther Sole Essential, B3rd, Look Mondae, OH! Season – Luther launched his career in 2010 when he featured on, legendary dj/producer, Julius Papp’s hit single, “Dame Mas 2010/Dub stylee” since then he has been carving a name for himself.

Luther considers his ‘’big break’’ to have come in February 2010, by composing for what’s now known as the biggest Africa-owned music library in the world, Lalela Music. Working with some of the biggest Television Stations and movie production companies in the world, (specifically in Africa, America & Asia), the young composer felt it ready to grow his brand, globally, and also introduce himself as an equally talented dj.

Determined to prove his dj skills to a global audience, Luther sought to find the right platform which presented itself in the form of a feature on one of Ibiza’s biggest house music site, Ibiza House Music (IHM). Being the “go getter & ultimate opportunist” that he is (as described by – Alan Lazar, Lalela Music CEO), it was only befitting that he agree.

Luther Lempe currently holds residency on Italian radio station – Radio 107. In the meantime he has been working on a handful of remixes for various recording labels such as Solid Ground Recordings (which has a catalogue of releases that feature artists such as Reelsoul, Carlos Vargas, Jonny Montana, Danny Clark, Groove Assasin and Nicole Mitchell, to name but a few), CX Records, New Generation Record, Daddy Funk Records, SG Music, MuSol Recordings, Open Bar Music, Soul Candi Records.

Luther Lempe hopes his talents as a Music Producer will be recognised both locally and internationally; and looks forward to entertaining the crowds all around the world.
