Just who is LTJ Bukem? Ground breaking DJ? Inspirational musician? Record label entrepreneur? Club visionary, perhaps? When the man behind those wire rimmed glasses and that disarming smile writes his job description just what does he put? The man who took the drum and bass concept from a small venue off London's Charing Cross Road to the nation's superclubs and then onto the international stage? The geezer whose records launched breakbeat into a brand new galaxy of sound? Or maybe he just writes 'Renaissance man for a digital age'. In truth LTJ Bukem is all of the above. Although he wouldn't like to admit it, LTJ Bukem is the living embodiment of the post-acid house entrepreneurial creative spirit. He is a mild mannered energy flash whose panoramic musical vision has found success in every area he has explored. From running sound systems to cutting up breaks at raves, from relocating the heart of breakbeat culture to redefining the spirit of drum and bass, the man known to his friends as Danny Williamson has sat at the forefront of breakbeat evolution, lighting the way with little more than a zest for life and a love of music. In other words, LTJ Bukem is a man on a mission!


Bukem's first introduction to music, like so many others, was through piano lessons as a child. Unlike many however, the young pianist turned out to possess a natural talent and he quickly moved through the piano grades. Classical music represented the soundtrack to his home life. Both parents having a passion for Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky that rubbed off on their son. However it was when the family moved to Watford and Bukem changed music teachers that he developed his first true musical love. Thanks to a progressively minded teacher - Nigel Crouch - he was then introduced to the world of jazz fusion, a style which has informed his work ever since.


In the mid eighties, at the age of seventeen, Bukem discovered the joys of clubbing. The teenager regularly checked out the local soul clubs and legendary rare groove all dayers. As a keen record buyer he soon became interested in the idea of putting over his own version of the club soundtrack and before long he became involved with a sound system. During this time he also ran a jazz funk band, although this never presented itself as a serious past-time; just fun. The DJing was his main thing and by 1987 he gained something of a reputation for his sets. However it was in 1988 that Bukem first realised that DJing could offer a full-on career.


Photek on Facebook
Photek on Soundcloud


Photek : a sonic scientist, pushing both his sounds and fans' expectations to the outermost limits since 1994, he floods the footnotes of electronica like MP3s clutter up your hard drive. Ardent displays of his eclectic method were there from the very beginning. The seeds had been sewn back in the dancefloor's most formative days, attending early raves, from his first EP on Metalheadz with the drum & bass meets downtempo 'Into The 90s', to 'Mine To Give', a sassy slab of sexed up house, set the foundations for todays genreless battlefields.


Destination tomorrow: Photek's decorated past and diligent work ethic leads us here. The new music you've heard from Photek in 2011 is yet another chapter in a life spent overdosing on sonic nuances and boundary testing. In the past 12 months his new material has been remixed by the brightest young stars of dance music - Boddika, Falty DL, Addison Groove to name a few. In turn, Photek has remixed for the likes of Moby, Distance, Lana Del Rey, Ray Lamontagne and was part of Daft Punk's 'Tron Remixed' package - for which he has been nominated for a Grammy.


The releases on his newly re-launched label, Photek Productions, has garnered international support from tastemakers such as Benji B, Gilles Peterson, Skream, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and more. His single 'Closer' was also released on Pinch's pioneering Tectonic Recordings in June, leading to a collaborative monster of a single 'Acid Reign' between the two producers in Spring 2012. Since then, Photek has gone on to release his contribution to the highly influential DJ Kicks compilation series on K7 Records, a series of releases on Photek Productions and his much anticipated new artist album 'KU:PALM'.


Justin Martin on Facebook
Justin Martin on Soundcloud


As the late Oscar Wilde once said: life is too important to be taken seriously, an ethos that Justin Martin is sticking with despite achieving soaring success over the last six years as a producer and international DJ.
Justin initially pricked the ears of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record The Sad Piano on Ben Watts Buzzin Fly label. Everyone in the electronic music food chain got involved, from the A list DJs like Derrick Carter and Pete Tong that were playing the track, to the international music press that were raving about it. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bugs Bugnology compilation. Like someone that goes bowling for the first time and gets five strikes and a turkey, Justin couldnt really have hoped for a better entrance.


Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude Vonstroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records, appearing on its first four releases. Justin was soon ready to take flight, releasing a string of solo EPs which flaunted a very unique sound and garnered still more respect among fellow DJS and heavyweights of the scene.


As well as his formidable arsenal of original productions, Justin is now equally known for his collaborations with his brother Christian as The Martin Brothers, producing such hip-hop influenced hits as Stoopit and Dum. Justin has also made his mark remixing such bona fide classics as Radioheads Nude, Marshall Jeffersons Mushrooms, and TGs Revox, firmly establishing himself as the man to make big tracks even bigger.


Demand for Justins skills behind the decks has skyrocketed with his bookings schedule basically crammed to capacity for the next 4 months. With bookings confirmed everywhere from Exit Festival (Belgrade), to Sonar (Barcelona) to Panorama Bar (Berlin), Justins diary is reading like the dreams of a professional raver. Stateside he continues to be a regular fixture at the dirtybird events in San Francisco and beyond.


Further nods to his skills as a DJ and tastemaker are apparent in his growing discography of mix compilations, most notably his own Chaos Restored mix series on the prestigious Buzzin Fly label.


Music journalists typically describe Justins sound as melodic and tough with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth yet always with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor.
Im always trying to find music for my DJ sets that rattles sound systems, but still has enough melody and interesting texture to expand your mind even if youre sitting at home on a snowy or rainy day.


By all accounts its hard to tell him to wipe that smile off his face.


R/D on Facebook
R/D on Soundcloud
