When rave culture hit Britain near the turn of the decade (1990), jungle developed as an offshoot of hardcore techno and acid house. Through DJing at such raves with acclaim LTJ Bukem naturally turned his hand to production. In 1990 he produced his first track "Logical Progression". Bukem soon grew frustrated with the lack of control over his own recordings, so in 1991 he formed his own label... Good Looking Records. Early goodlooking tracks like "Demons Theme", "Atlantis" and "Music" provided a soulful, melodic alternative to the prevailing hardcore tracks then in vogue.
By 1994, LTJ Bukem had formed his second label... Looking Good Records and begun the formation of an artist collective including Peshay, Aquarius (aka Photek), Blame, Nookie & Tayla, — similarly inclined towards melodicism and epic expanses of sound.
In 1994 Bukem also launched the legendary club night ‘Speed’ at the Mars Bar in order to promote goodlooking's approach to sound. With Bukem & Fabio spinning breakbeat records while MC Conrad provided verbal gymnastics, it soon became one of the most popular clubs in London.
In 1996 the release of Logical Progression signalled goodlooking’s commitment to the jungle community providing shelter for a unique band of producers.
In 1996 goodlooking introduced the Earth series of compilations. The Earth series showcases a range of mid-tempo musical styles from hip-hop, cosmic funk, and future soul, jazz and house music. The most recent volume – Earth 7 features a DVD with 5.1 DTS surround sound.
1998 saw the release of the first Progression Sessions mix CD. These live recordings capture the vibe of the Progression Sessions tours & residencies from around the world. Now in its 10th edition the Progression Sessions series documents the musical direction of goodlooking Records through the years and illustrates the live element brought to each event through the complimentary pairing of LTJ Bukem's music and the vocals of MC Conrad. Progression Sessions documents the emergance of drum & bass on a global scale.
