Welcome to evolutionarytheory.com!
With over 20 years of production experience, 6 compilation album appearances with 17 released singles, an on-line repertoire of over 62 releases and a genre pool that spans Classical to Drum and Bass – evolutionary theory aka e-theory aka Luke Emrose has had an eclectic and striking production history.
Starting in Adelaide, a chance meeting with Mark7, 5158 Records label owner and 1997-98 Triple J DJ Mix-up contest winner, set in motion a string of events that forever changed the face of the local Adelaide music scene. Along with vocalist Lana, the three were nominated for the 2005 SA Dance Music Awards Local Release of the year for their Drum and Bass anthem – “Like The Sun”, which received world-wide radio and club exposure. Next, collaborating with now-signed Technique Recordings artists D Jon and Skyver and 2003 Australian Idol finalist vocalist Lesley, Emrose co-produced the first ever 5158 Records world-wide Vinyl release, “Gimme Something”, which was later also signed to Technique Recordings via a remix by prolific Perth-based Drum and Bass producer, Phetsta.
Now residing in Sydney, Emrose has composed/produced music for companies like Random House Australia; producing many and varied styles of music for online book marketing campaigns and trailers – from classically inspired Orchestral arrangements to Glitch and Breakbeat jingles whilst also maintaining a regular stream of Drum and Bass releases for the popular 5158 Records CD compilation – ‘Adelaide Drum and Bass’ – now in it’s 6th series (Emrose has contributed 14 singles for the series since it’s inception in 2002), and more recently a string of Trance and Progressive House tunes.
Emrose has recently worked with Lee Safar on the singles “I’m Here” and “We Jump” – both available on Beatport, and is currently hard at work on Lee Safar’s up and coming Electronica album.
