Hey Good Looking…
Without a doubt one of Drum & Bass’ most successful and recognisable record labels, Good Looking has always stood for quality atmospheric and soulful music. With one of the scene’s living legends, LTJ Bukem, at the helm, the label erupted as a breath of fresh air upon the raw and irrepressible Rave scene in the early ‘90s and has stood as a testament to how far across the globe well produced and thoughtful electronic music can reach.
Of course, LTJ Bukem is still one of the world’s leading DJs and his career has seen him tour the length and breadth of the world spreading the Good Looking word wherever a set of decks and an up-for-it crowd can be found. And now, after a break from releasing music, Good Looking is ready to roll once more with a selection of exciting 12” singles from some of the freshest talent that musical Drum & Bass has to offer, and LTJ Bukem’s next long awaited instalment in the ‘In Sessions’ series is set to drop this autumn.
First up will be a name familiar to any Good Looking fan, Furney. This artist dropped the awesome ‘Drum Tools’ on the flip side of the last Good Looking single (LTJ Bukem’s own ‘Switch’), and here he comes again to provide you with some more silky smooth sounds with ‘Pipez’, a track that features on the aforementioned ‘In Sessions’ CD recorded live from Exit Festival. Backing that up will be another of the scene’s leading lights, Utah Jazz, with the soul-fuelled ‘Leap of Faith’, a track that cements his reputation as one of the hottest producers on the block right now.
Following that will be another outstanding selection of split artist singles featuring Funktastics and Peyo, Soulmatic and Furney, Tayla and Ink & Perpetuum, and as you can see, the future is looking very good for the Good Looking camp.
