Deejay Luie Lepke was highly popular on the Jamaican soundsystem circuit.
His style is a classic example of the early dancehall style of the 80s, toasting over well known Studio One and Treasure Isle riddims. Although Lepki recorded extensively for several producers, his cuts for producer Joe Gibbs have stood the test of time particularly well. Louie released 3 albums: ‘Latenight movie’ produced by Joe Gibbs & Errol Thompson, 1981, ‘Willie Red’ for Channel one in 1982
and ‘Face to face’ with Johnny Ringo (who died in 2005 suffering from cocaine addiction). The actual facts about Louie’s death are not really clear, it is said that Lepki was killed in ± 1986 by a gunman by a shot in the head.
