This review is from: Logical Progression Vol.1: Mixed By Ltj Bukem (Audio CD)
Music is a matter of taste and this album is a cold bottle of red stripe after a day in the sun on a building site . I was fortunate enough to get most of these tunes on e.p before the album came out, i have this album on vinyl under the stairs and i havent listened to it since i stopped mixing, but i heard horizons the other day and it had the same impact as it did all that time ago. Most albums have a couple of main presents then a load of stocking fillers, this album doesnt know about stocking fillers. The tunes from LTJ himself are amoungst the finest ever made. Music ( wicked ) Demons Theme (oh my gosh) Horizons (forget about it, game over). Then there are producers like PFM bringing you the western,amoungst others.
Bukem has always been ahead of the game i remember going to Dance 93 at the Brighton Centre and half the crowd were walking around saying Bukem had ruined the vibe and the other half knew that they were listening to something special. What i mean by that is that music is a matter of taste, those with taste liked Bukem those without liked Mickey Finn and the likes. That is no disrespect to him or the countless other D.J's like him but with Bukem you really got the feeling that he didnt play or make music to make money or please crowds. He played what he loved and what he felt passionately about and that is why Logical Progression is such a good album. These arent tunes that Bukem liked, these are a series of tunes that bukem loved, compiled over about 5 years. And i still hate him for holding them back on dub plate for 10 months at a time!!!!!!! Bukem i salute you you are a genius
