Earth, Vol. 4

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ken Micallef
With his 1996 dance compilation Logical Progression, London junglist LTJ Bukem was both scorned and praised for fostering a jazz-jungle-lite sound while expanding the genre's insular borders. But with his 2000 album Journey Inwards reveling in deep textures and dark grooves and his stable of dance labels swelling, the bespectacled producer has really hit his stride. That's fully evident in the balmy funk, jazz, and house textures of Earth 4, a compilation culled from Bukem's various holdings. Even older Bukem artists such as Tayla and Artemis sound rejuvenated here, thanks to four-to-the-floor grooves embellished with buoyant bass lines and cozy electric piano melodies ...

Barnes & Noble - Ken Micallef

But with his 2000 album Journey Inwards reveling in deep textures and dark grooves and his stable of dance labels swelling, the bespectacled producer has really hit his stride. That's fully evident in the balmy funk, jazz, and house textures of Earth 4, a compilation culled from Bukem's various holdings. Even older Bukem artists such as Tayla and Artemis sound rejuvenated here, thanks to four-to-the-floor grooves embellished with buoyant bass lines and cozy electric piano melodies and draped in atmospheres as lush as a Caribbean beach at sunset. The artists are interchangeable, as is the music on Bukem's sundry labels, but what keeps it all simmering are the constantly shifting sonics and moods, which change as subtly as the seasons.
All Music Guide - Diana Potts
LTJ Bukem and friends make another appearance with Earth, Vol. 4. Started in 1996, the Earth series has featured original down-tempo compositions by Good Looking Records artists that fuse jazz, breakbeats, and hip-hop. However, the fourth installment of the series released on September 19, 2000 focuses on a more deep house, Latin-driven sound. The album hosts 12 original tracks from Good Looking's old and new artists and affiliated labels, such as Deep Rooted, Looking Good, and Cookin'.
