In My Own Words:
For the future of electronic music, it seems quite obvious to me that its unique resources guarantee its use, because it has shifted the boundaries of music away from the limitations of the acoustical instrument, of the performer's coordinating capabilities, to the almost infinite limitations of the electronic instrument. The new limitations are the human ones of perception.

Body conditioning, resistance training, self defence applications, mixed martial arts, electronic music, stealth infiltration and mech video games. Not forgetting finely directed action and sci-fi movies..

Future Reference (Ltd ed) ~ John B
John B's Future Reference album is a nice combination of what was going on in the dnb genre of it's time. Although John's take is usually left of centre and a little different to the dnb norm. Possibly intentional to be a little wilder and extreme to push the dance floor movement, but at the same time this album gives great tracks of liquid funk.

'When I'm Close 2 U' starts off the album with a soft intro before ramping up the tempo with more than a nod to oldskool rave whilst 'What's On Your Mind' calms things down soulfully. The Brazillian themed numbers ascend into crazy bpm and show how diverse and varying the dnb beats go.

'So Real' is a sublime track and possibly… Read more
LTJ Bukem presents Producer 01 ~ L.T.J. Bukem
Bukem's personal points in time that reveal more of his lucid and finely produced works. 'Constellations' add to the downtempo additions, whilst 'Coolin' Out' reminds you of the cool, jazz fusion heritage Bukem loves so much and 'Twilight Voyage' takes you on a soulful trip through the stars. There's a nice selection here with at least something to please everyone but all can be appreciated for the technical talent that Bukem has always strived through his jazz fusion inspired creations. A nice addition of old skool beats to compliment and accompany Bukem's 'Journey Inwards' album. Let's hope Bukem releases another variation of tracks on a new album so the appreciaton can continue.

Points In Time 002 ~ Points in Time (Series)
When Nostalgia bites and the need for dnb history travelling calls, then spinning Points In Time 2 will satisfy your needs. At least in terms of jazzy, deep dnb/jungle in it's day, when chords and blue notes were pushed just as hard as the beats.

Bukem's original 'Atlantis' is a sublime send back to cool waves of deep soul. A classic to the present day. But all tracks in their unique and varying liquid dnb forms will please most in the way of their quality delivery, as is always sinominous of Bukem's label. A disc of liquid dnb history that shouldn't be forgotten or ignored.
