Johannesburg, South Africa – Oct. 02, 2018 – South African rapper, LuE, announced the release of his new single, “Known.” A combination of deep tech house and hip-hop, there’s a soulful feel to the lyrics and production but is a clear example of “feel good” music.

Born Oct. 4, 1996, the Libran grew up in various locations throughout South Africa, finally arriving on the famous Vilakazi St. where he witnessed the comings and goings of famous artists. Seeing those musical icons had a major impact on his creativity. His earliest exposure to music was through his uncle’s extensive hip-hop collection.
He realized in high school that he had talent and wanted to be a recording artist – specifically, a rapper. He began attending open mic nights at local clubs. LuE worked on training his vocal abilities and had the good fortune to meet music producer, Bradz la Muzik in 2013. The producer developed LuE’s musical talent and the artist credits much of his success to that nurturing environment.
