DRUM N BASS / DUBSTEP 35 7 Issue 51 / 2013 Artist of the month LTJ Bukem - 'In Session' Elizabeth Welch, aka Liz-E, looks set to become one of the few big female names in dnb. If you haven't heard of the drum and bass artist by now, you are seriously missing out! Growing up in Milton Keynes, she first discovered her love for music attending raves like Helter Skelter and Slamming Vinyl around 2003. Working hard to outdo all her male friends, she landed gigs in various clubs and eventually earned a long term, weekly radio show on Intobeats. She signed to Smokin Riddims and her success grew with the release of "The Witches" and "Time and Space". A few of her tracks were sent in to Radio 1's Friction, and after he played The Last Time on his show her success really took off. The Last Time is an If you're a fan of soulful and summery liquid drum and bass, the news that LTJ Bukem and Good Lookin' Records have combined to bring another instalment in the legendary 'Bukem in Session' series will have filled you with joy. A refresher course in the best modern jungletinged sounds in keeping with the original vibes of the first release back in 1992; this 16-track collection is seamlessly blended together by none other than the man himself. It combines both established and more recent artists, perfectly highlighting the strength of both the label and genre alike. The standout uplifting piece of liquid DnB, with soulful vocals, ethereal strings, twinkling piano and a powerful bassline – it's hardly surprising that Friction contacted her to request that she release the track on SGN ltd. With increasing airtime on Radio 1 and more and more gigs coming in, Liz-E has worked hard to ensure everything she releases is pure quality and is a great representation of what women can do in the world of DnB. LWE Presents Shogun Audio Warehouse Party Following on from the mammoth success that was the last London Warehouse Events presents Shogun takeover of Great Suffolk Street, the label giants laid down another unmissable night. With advanced tickets flying out upon its announcement, it was no surprise to see the buzzing stream of people lining the outside of those now-familiar arches upon arrival. The line up including heavyweights Noisia, Friction, The Prototypes, Alix Perez , EZ and Spectrasoul amongst others; Shogun Audio know exactly how to reward their dedicated fans. Two of our favourite producers at the moment took the reins with the warm up slot of 10-11;Technimatic's silky smooth transitions and warm flowing liquid sound was the ideal starting point to ease in the early crowd. Next was Room 1 for Alix Perez' album showcase – the hugely anticipated 'Chroma Chords' drops on the 20th May and this exclusive set served to display the versatility of this innovative producer. The legendary Jehst and Foreign Beggars both jumped on MC duties, absolutely killing it with their raw live energy. Room 2 brought us Spectrasoul, from the start but got utterly waylaid by the old school rollers being dropped by DJ EZ. Catching highlights from the brilliant Spectrasoul – who busy were sampling plenty of fresh sounds– it was straight back towards the monstrous sound of Noisia echoing through the arches. Top work as ever Shogun and London Warehouse Events. track for me has to be a stunning rework of Bukem's game-changing 'Atlantis' by Marky and S.P.Y, whilst his 'Music' remix comes a close second - getting the silky smooth Technimatic treatment. Vandera's 'Anandamide' instantly takes you back to the original Good Lookin' sound, the ever lively Random Movement provides a deeper surge with 'Alone This Way' (No Need To Stay) as an injection of unbridled funk comes courtesy of Dave Owen with 'Deep Breathin'. Other particularly blissful contributions come courtesy of DRamatic &dAudio, Furney and Dynamic. This assortment stands testament of the long-standing and unrivalled Good Lookin' Records, and Bukem himself as a innovator - I was also lucky enough to catch his outstanding set at the last Drum and Bass Arena event. This sundrenched album serves as an example of the constant stream of quality production from the pair. for more visit OUR PLAYLIST...
