Logical Progression, Level 1

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Chiedo Nkwocha
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.

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.
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.

    Good Drum n' Bass

    LTJ Bukem may be the world's premier DnB dj. This is a good introduction to the kind of jungle he spins, which is more melodic and ''intelligent''. But don't try him as a pushover, because he also likes some darker and more aggressive tracks. He's a UK dj, and thank G-d for that. USA has some great spinners but ya can't beat the Brits when it comes to cutting edge dance music.
