1995 was the year that drum & bass forced its way out of the underground. A week before One In The Jungle exploded across the airways, the world renowned Essential Mix show featured the LTJ alongside MC Conrad. So underground was this sound that even Pete Tong, himself about to push the genre over the top with the release of Goldie's Timeless on his FFRR imprint, had no idea who Bukem was and pronounces his name wrong throughout the show! The tracklisting that appeared in Mixmag the following week backed up the fact that this sound was on the cutting edge as it mostly read along the lines of "unknown - untitled (acetate)". This is an unmissable moment in history that you just have to hear:
