4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant D'n'B listening, 3 Feb 2012

This review is from: Fabriclive 46 (Audio CD)
I've briefly read over the other reviews and think they all give a fairly good account of what this mix is about. It's true that this set doesn't sound especially different to what Bukem was doing in the late 1990s, but I for one was quite glad. When Bukem set up Good Lookin' records for a second spell, there was always the danger it wouldn't appeal to it's original audience due to times changing. But unlike quite a few DJs of the modern era, Bukem has always delivered for his own fans and maintained high quality music within the perimeters he has set.

For me, the original Logical Progression (1996) is the seminal Bukem moment and the true 'must hear' album at the soulful end of Drum 'n' Bass'. This fabric doesn't reach those dizzying heights, but it's a good addition to any electronic music fan's collection.

I think there is just enough variation across the Cd to keep it fresh, as some take a more jazzy and soulful approach, others are slightly more thumping, and we even get the odd light orchestral moment in amongst the beats. Bukem puts in a few DJ tricks into this mix, which don't especially add anything, but it shows he was enjoying himself when putting the mix together.

Whilst this is neither his best Cd or the best of the fabric collection, it's really great to have a taste of Bukem in the late 2000s, and hopefully will lead to much more to come from the man. It's a good, solid, but pleasant mix. You can play it as background music, stick it on your ipod when out for a run or turn it up for a party. It works on many levels, so I'd definitely recommend it.

4/5
