Bukem

Hiya all.


Has anyone here booked him recently? Have been trying to get him to Dublin for well over a year but am finding it quite hard :/
Dont think he likes us Oirish much tbh.... [Image: icon_lol.gif]

Does anyone know if he is playing in London any time soon, as i would make a trip just to catch him.

Thanks y'all

I dont think that is the case. Anyway, not a thing to be discussed on a public forum.

I just wanna see the lad play out Icon_sad

From what I've heard and seen from setlists etc I don't think you'd be much into his sets these days Barry and I don't think he does oldskool sets ? Unless it's a Speed one-off or something.

i heard him a couple of months ago at fabric and to be honest it wasnt like it was in the "olden days"...i just dont think he is into the tunes as much these days.

his mixing was ok...nothing special.

i would love him to play a back to speed set, butthat happens once in a blue moon.

peace

The End, 2005/6 I believe. I can tell you it was a legendary night. Back To Speed. That needs to happen once every 10 years. Keep me ticking over until I die. Xyxthumbs

yep, I saw him a few years ago and it was as dull as dishwater. I also heard a set from him at the end of 09 and it was end-to-end uninspiring liquid vibe (every tune having that identical tinny break).

It's a real shame as he was the man back in the 90s.

I love playing oldskool atmospheric Jungle...

if anyone every wants an old style atmospheric set - I'd be there in a flash doing my Bukem impression (minus the Joe 90 glasses but with the Joe 90 paleness)

I've seen Bukem & Conrad twice in the last year or so and both times it was very blah blah blah crap. Luckily I didn't pay for either shows though or I would have been pissed, but I know better than to pay for that stuff now a daze tbh. Not at all what most subverts would want in a set. Wishy washy fluff, filler tunes from start to fin imho. Icon_sad

Never really been one for old skool nights. I love old atmospheric stuff in clubs , but unfortunately finding old skool atmospheric nights is hard as most tend to do the old skool ravey type stuff . I couldn't think of anything more boring than standing in a club listening to tunes like that... No different to my ears than clown-step or wobbly dubstep.
But if I had to book someone to do a atmospheric Jungle set it would be Nookie... or me.

You mean to tell me you'd find listening to "So Long" by Seba & Lotek in a club boring ?

Or "Solutions" by Axis ?

Or "Tokyo Dawn" ?

Bukem sets are so boring now days, he is so out of touch and doesnt seem to care.

I have been lucky enough to catch 2 oldskool / speed sets he has done, both at Logical Progression nights in the last 5 years. Fabric first, then Ministry, he was fucking brilliant.

I was there too!
was a great night, defo need another one of them.

Bukem is a legend. End of.

His contribution to dnb has been immense.

he doesnt really need to keep playing week in week out, he is probably more select now and playing for events that he wants to, rather than because he has to
