LTJ Bukem

In the mid eighties, at the age of seventeen, Bukem discovered the joys of clubbing. The teenager regularly checked out the local clubs and legendary all dayers. During this time he also ran a band. DJing however, was his main thing and by 1987 he gained something of a reputation for his sets. In 1990, LTJ Bukem got his first big break - at ‘Raindance’. Booked to play in front of a crowd of 10,000…

Bukem then ventured into the studio to record a track which was to become one of the most influential records of the era. This 12” titled ‘Logical Progression’ surfaced on the newly formed Vinyl Mania imprint. At once anthemic and relaxing it offered the first true blueprint to Bukem’s sonic vision. By the time of his follow up to ‘Logical Progression’ Bukem had set up his own imprint, ‘Good Looking Records’ and its debut offering came in the shape of ‘Demon’s Theme’. Bukem’s next release was ‘Apollo’ in ‘92, however his biggest breakthrough came with his next release ‘Music’ in 1993. In 1994 Bukem unleashed ‘19.5’ and the similarly epic ‘Horizons’. There were remixes, which included reworks of Jodeci’s ‘Feenin’ and Michelle Gayle’s ‘Sweetness’ and a collaboration with David Arnold on the infamous James Bond theme to ‘Thunderball’

The start of the 21st century saw the release of his long awaited solo album ‘Journey Inwards’; a diverse and multi directional album of drum ‘n’ bass, , and tracks.

    I am looking for a particular song of LTJ Bukem's where much like the song 'Horizons', it has a old vocal backing which is quite legendary. It may not be one of his songs, but it is probably on one of his albums, and it goes something like this: "You must be willing to accept the fact that pain is a part of the process of revelation. You have to be willing to take the field and stay on the field the way Duke stayed on the road"

    Да, Букем конечно человек с большой буквы. И весь его Good Looking один из лучших электронных лейблов которые я знаю. [2]
