L.T.J. Bukem - Deserted Vaults

L.T.J. Bukem is the stage name used by the drum and bass musician, producer and DJ Danny Williamson (born 1967, Watford, Hertfordshire). He and his record label Good Looking Records are most associated with the jazzy, atmospheric side of drum and bass music. The name "L.T.J. Bukem" is a contraction of "El DJ Book 'em", a nod to the Spanish for "The DJ". "Book'em" (or "Book'em Danno") is the well-known catchphrase by Steve McGarret, Senior Officer to "Danny Williams" on the television series Hawaii Five-O. Together we get "Ltj Bukem".

Early in his career, Bukem was identified for his response to the "almost paranoid hyperkinesis" of breakbeat-based house music, and specifically for his reservations regarding the overbearing force of the hardcore mentality. Bukem's music from the early 1990's onward represents his efforts to map out an alternative future for breakbeat house music by incorporating softer-edged influences culled from London's 1980's rare groove and acid jazz scenes. Music on Logical Progression reveals these influences, as does his approach on 1993's Music / Enchanted, which features string arrangements and sounds from nature. His use of keyboards, live vocals and slow motion breaks on these and future releases earned Bukem's music the tag "intelligent drum and bass"...

"Deserted Vaults" is the title of the song that i choose for you to listen... Enjoy!
