As any listener who's heard a single from any label headed by Bukem will probably be able to guess, his focus here is not quite standard drum'n'bass, but a set of earthy breaks inspired Edelweiß Und Almenrausch - Waltraut Schulz U.

Herbert Roth* - Edelweiß Und Almenrausch / Das Vogelst the smoother end of '70s jazz and fusion. Compared to the other jungle pioneers who've recorded expansive double-disc albums 4 HeroRoni SizeGoldie Journey Inwards - LTJ Bukem - Journey Inwards , Bukem 's is most similar in concept and sound to 4 Hero 's Two Pagesan organic LP with midtempo breakbeats and earthy workouts for instrumentalists not programmers.

Even more than 4 Herohowever, Bukem 's focus on non-commercial, non-vocal productions is both confident and exemplary. Though it's been easy and perhaps, necessary to fault Bukem in the past for aping his influences, Journey Inwards makes it practically impossible -- especially in the context of these productions, so beautiful, so detailed, so precisely imagined they sound as though they've come straight from Heaven's recording studio.

From the shimmering waves of Rhodes keyboards and the undeniably upright bass on the title-track opener which might be a bit too expansive in its own rightBukem moves into true drum'n'bass with a sleek, excellent two-stepper called "Watercolours" which features a downplayed, honking sax. He often returns to the Rhodes it must be his favorite instrumentperhaps a few times too many, but every Journey Inwards - LTJ Bukem - Journey Inwards is used with the balance just right.

The breaks programming isn't next-generation, but for each song Bukem finds a pattern that works perfectly with the effects to support it. The second disc is reportedly the downtempo disc, though it's only marginally different from the first. It does indeed concentrate more on influences and genre exercises, from the blaxploitation bliss of "Sunrain" one of the few vocal tracks on the album to the soul-jazz strut of "Deserted Vaults.

Truth to tell, there's never been a drum'n'bass double-album that shouldn't have been pared down.
