LuckyMe is an extended family of musicians and artists founded in Scotland, UK. Some of us are beautiful. Others are ugly. Let us tell you how it all started.
LuckyMe Music.Art.Parties began as a seventy-five capacity club held in a vegan rock venue in Glasgow. We were a hip hop group who increasingly became influenced by the techno, house, jazz and post-rock. On an auspicious date in the Chinese year of the Golden Hog, 07-07-07, we started operating as the family you see here today.
Ours is another real D.I.Y story of artists and young-ass fake business men. All our friends are the product, industry and workforce behind LuckyMe. Arguably more than ever before the UK has become the epicentre of emerging dance music and we claim our small place in that. We helped carve some column inches for artist in Glasgow but where this goes from here is every bit as exciting. We now roll out with a global roster via full time, no day job, no rich relatives directors based in London, Glasgow & New York. It’s a good feeling.
So with ever renewing appreciation, we continue to put out our favourite indulgent shit – whether it be music, shows or artwork – for people to eat up in this far too cynical world.
