    UKF is an essential and integral part of the global dance music culture and has been the cultivating ground for so many artists including myself. There’s only a handful of global brand who have been able to create a versatile experience covering every single aspect in electronic music and Luke and the lovable gang at UKF are the pioneers. Let me take this opportunity to wish the legendary brand UKF a happy 15 years!! Here’s for more and more years to come!! Big love!

    Dimension

    I want to wish UKF the happiest of 15th birthdays! I met you fourteen years ago, when we were both just kids who loved drum & bass. Ever since that day, I was always dazzled by your calm intelligence, astuteness and warm heart. It’s no surprise that with you at the helm, UKF has grown so far – and continues to be a cultural pillar in the electronic music scene. I will always be indebted to you, for the chances and support you’ve given my music. 

    A.M.C

    Geez I’ll never forget the day you (Luke) walked into the Shoreditch offices all those years ago and literally changed the game. You were like 12 or something right? 😂

    Here’s to another 15 years mate, smashed it! 🍻

    René LaVice

    I have so many fond memories and high points in my career that have been shared with (and often procured by) UKF! From having my first major YouTube upload with them at a young age and seeing the immense positivity that followed, to performing main stage at Exit festival on the UKF lineup, to travelling all the way to Buenos Aires for the first time for a UKF show, and countless other warm memories, UKF has had such an impact on my life and the lives of so many music lovers around the world. Be proud of 15 years of UKF! It’s a fantastic accomplishment and to see the outfit still at the top as one of the most influential leaders in the industry is something to behold! Keep bringing people together, and keep spreading the love of music. Keep the passion! Congratulations and much love.

    Charlie Tee

    Happy Bday you trailblazers! 15 whole years of UKF, what an incredible accolade and gift to the world. I can remember meeting Luke for the first time and being confused when he explained that UKF stands for ‘U.K Frome’; which is actually the place where he’s from. And now look at them, putting Frome on the map worldwide and we love to see it! Big love Charlie Tee x

    Pola & Bryson

    Happy Birthday to the UKF family! 15 years is genuinely mad, and to think it all began with a desire to share good music with others! Massive love to you Luke and the rest of your team for the decade and a half of pure love you’ve put into UKF and helping to share great music with great people and helping shape many careers along the way.

    Happy birthday UKF! Seeing the blue & yellow speaker symbols for the first time during my teenage years brings back such fond memories and the influence the channel had on my music taste.

    I grew up with UKF, and started listening to my first dubstep and dnb tunes because of them. Getting the opportunity to have an article on there was a full circle moment. Thank you Luke for everything, you deserve the best birthday ever.

    Mel

    UKF and Luke believed in me and took a chance on my debut tune, when most labels said no… and now it has over half a million streams! It’s such an honour to have backing from such an iconic label and label manager, the support means a lot ❤

    Overview Music 

    Happy Birthday to UKF & Luke on 15 years, massive milestone!

    Amazing to see it grow from the early YouTube days, and I’m sure I speak for many when I say this platform helped us get into this music.

    Too many great uploads, but if we’re forced to pick one, we’d throw it back to this OG banger from Dirtyphonics. Still goes off:

    P.S. bring back the yellow speaker xx
