Overview

A founding father of drum 'n' bass, LTJ Bukem is known as DJ, producer, and head of the influential London-based Good Looking and Looking Good labels. A label overview, this double-disc collection (released in 1996, the first of a series) assembles a cast of rulin' DJs and presents enough house influences and steady rhythms to serve as a solid introduction to the genre. Bukem includes his own best-known recordings ("Music," "Demon's Theme," "Horizons") on disc one, then remixes disc two himself, including Photek's "Pharoah," a bubbling cauldron of beats; Peshay's progressive "Vocal Tune"; and DJ Trace's "After Hours," a track that sums up succinctly the vibe of this compendium. In gathering together these DJs and performances, Bukem provides an archive of cutting-edge mid-'90s breakbeat that will continue to sound fresh for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
The best overview of LTJ Bukem's accomplishments, Logical Progression functions three ways: as a Bukem basic-trainer, a retrospective of his Good Looking and "Looking Good" labels, and as a DJ mix album (though the latter occurs only on disc two). Bukem's most famous recordings ("Demon's Theme," "Music," "Horizons") appear here, as well as the Looking Good anthem "Links" by Chameleon and contributions from PFM, Peshay, Photek, and Funky Technicians. Bukem himself mixes disc two, though the relative constraints inherent in the album's nature make the mixing a bit of a disappointment -- at least compared to his volume in the Mixmag Live! series. Still, the house influences and steady rhythms make Logical Progression perhaps the best introduction to jungle for those not used to hyper-speed breakbeats.
