Luke S. Crowder (born c. 1988 in Roebuck) is a music producer.

Crowder is the son of Kenneth Crowder Sr and his wife, Robbie. He grew up in Roebuck, where his mother sang with the Winewood Baptist Christian Fellowship choir and his older brother Ken was gigging as a DJ and rapper. He began working with music production software in his spare time while a student at Ramsay High School. Ken and one of his classmates at Alabama A&M University, Jacquez Williams joined with Luke as SWAT Team Productions in the early 2000s.

Luke enrolled at UAB, majoring in biology with a music minor. He left in 2009 and worked at various jobs while moonlighting as a music producer. With mentorship from Atlanta record producer Darwin "Lil C" Quinn, Crowder began co-producing tracks for GuTTa Muzik. He hosts a monthly community event, "Vibe Tribe" at The Green House in Ensley. Those events gave rise to programming in development with The Flourish for Birmingham City Schools students. He is also working with RJV Media, Sound Fader and Good Omen Studios to develop a multimedia production facility in Homewood.

Crowder has worked with many hip-hop artists, including 2Chainz, Latto, PartyNextDoor, and Rick Ross. As one of the producers on Killer Mike's 2023 album "Michael", he won a 2Grammy Award in February 2024.
