Soundcrash are exceptionally proud to announce a night of mind-altering drum & bass featuring legendary producer LTJ Bukem. “The godfather of jungle” will ignite the dance floor headlining Village Underground 21 August 2015 supported by the superb Om Unit.
Emerging out of the late 80’s as a DJ, LTJ Bukem discovered his passion for drum and bass when exploring the realms of jazz fusion. So it’s natural that when Bukem’s career as a DJ progressed in the early 90‘s and he found himself delving into the studio, it was these frantic breakbeats in tandem with the melodic, yet almost awry basslines of jazz instrumentation that informed Bukem’s creations, developing a progressive and textured sound equal parts anthemic and tranquil. The album was titled ‘Logical Progression’ and marked Bukem as an innovator, a tag that has stuck through his work on his own esteemed Good Looking Records imprint, and still bears strong today as Bukem continues to DJ extensively across the globe under his ‘Progression Session’ banner.
“Drum & bass will never roll over and die as long as Bukem is around, and he's not content just to sit on his breakbeat throne either”NME
