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. Head of the Good Looking Organisation of labels and artists LTJ Bukem is widely acknowledged to be one of the leading figures in the realm of atmospheric or intelligent jungle.
