In this 110th episode of PHUNKTION, we bring one of Indonesia’s finest DJ/Producer DTX, who is also running his own record label INVERT REC.  Started out producing Hip Hop music in 2001 by the name of Ares, in 2003 he was trying to broaden his knowledge in House music while he was studying Design in Perth, Australia. He then found some friends who introduced him to Drum N Bass music and started to interest himself into it, and DTX is the proof that he started producing Drum N Bass ever since. Although he produced different kind of dance music, but he chose Drum N Bass as his base music influence.
Its gonna be one helluva night, so see you on the dance floor and lets dance like nobody’s watching!

LTJ BUKEM at The Goods Diner

The legend is back in Jakarta!

LTJ BUKEM (UK)

LTJ BUKEM

Viewed as an innovator in the drum and bass style, Bukem is known for developing an accessible alternative to that hardcore genre’s speedy, assaultive energies. His style pays homage to the Detroit based sound of early techno, but Bukem also incorporates still earlier influences, particularly the mellow, melodic sonorities of 1970s era jazz fusion as exemplified by Lonnie Liston Smith and Roy Ayers. 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 1990s onward represents his efforts to map out an alternative future for drum and bass by incorporating softer-edged influences culled from London‘s 1980s 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. While this designation caused controversy within the drum and bass community, it also influenced the popularisation of hardcore music in the UK during the mid-1990s.

LTJ Bukem has been an integral force in the development of Drum and Bass for well over 10 years and without his input, it is hard to imagine how the shape of our music would look today. He can, almost single-handedly, be held responsible for the conception and development of the more soulful side of Drum and Bass that he has since become renowned for. Labelled “Intelligent Drum and Bass” at the time, LTJ Bukem chose not to accept the new moniker, claiming that it suggested other examples of the genre lacked intelligence; a viewpoint that over the years has earned him respect from some of the scene’s biggest names.

GOLDIE (Metalheadz / UK)

The first superstar produced by the breakbeat jungle movement, Goldie popularized drum’n’bass as a form of musical expression just as relevant for living-room contemplation as techno had become by the early ’90s. For the first time, England had a beat maestro and tough-guy head who could match the scores of larger-than-life hip-hop stars America had produced, and the high profile of drum’n’bass as the first indigenously British dance music made Goldie a figure of prime importance. After spending several years working on his production skills at Reinforced Records (the home of 4hero), he founded Metalheadz Records, which released seminal dark-yet-intelligent singles by Source Direct, Photek, J. Majik, Optical, Lemon D, Wax Doctor, and Peshay, among others. In 1995, Goldie released Timeless, one of jungle’s first and best full-length works of art.

He recorded his first single as Ajax Project, then debuted on Reinforced as Metalheadz with two 1992 singles, “Killermuffin” and “Menace.” The 1993 single “Terminator” broke him into the jungle scene — besides pioneering the crucial jungle concept of time-stretching (basically extending a sample without altering its pitch) the single evinced the growing separation between the uplifting rave scene and its emerging dark side, reliant on breakbeats and restless vibes.

The name was later taken for his influential Metalheadz Records, which released material from a legion of crucial jungle artists: PhotekDoc ScottDillinjaSource Direct,PeshayJ MajikAlex ReeceLemon D, and Optical among others. Later singles such as “Angel” and remixes for 4hero‘s Reinforced label spread Goldie‘s fame, and in 1995 he signed a contract with London Records. His first major-label single was “Timeless,” and his debut album of the same name followed in August 1995.

Goldie resurfaced in 1998 with a high-profile follow-up, SaturnzReturn, an epic two-disc set including one track, “Mother,” that broke the 60-minute barrier itself. The album tanked with critics and fans, leading to a return to the underground later that year with the Ring of Saturn EP. Goldie mixed a two-disc volume in the INCredible series of mix albums compiled by Ovum, as well as a number of Metalheadz-centric sets. Malice in Wonderland, a production album credited to Rufige Kru, was completed for a 2007 release.
