Apéritif presents:
LTJ BUKEM (Past,Present, & Future)

Last year we witnessed this iconic legend-making his return after 17 years and we could not wait any longer to bring LTJ Bukem back Austin. This time heading ACL closing weekend. Come and join us as we celebrate our 2-year anniversary.

:::LTJ Bukem:::

Just who is LTJ Bukem? Groundbreaking DJ? Inspirational musician? Record label entrepreneur? Club visionary, perhaps? When the man behind those wire-rimmed glasses and that disarming smile writes his job description just what does he put? The man who took the drum and bass concept from a small venue off London's Charing Cross Road to the nation's superclubs and then onto the international stage? The geezer whose records launched breakbeat into a brand new galaxy of sound? Or maybe he just writes 'Renaissance man for a digital age'. In truth, LTJ Bukem is all of the above. Although he wouldn't like to admit it, LTJ Bukem is the living embodiment of the post-acid house entrepreneurial creative spirit. He is a mild-mannered energy flash whose panoramic musical vision has found success in every area he has explored. From running sound systems to cutting up breaks at raves, from relocating the heart of breakbeat culture to redefining the spirit of drum and bass, the man known to his friends as Danny Williamson has sat at the forefront of breakbeat evolution, lighting the way with little more than a zest for life and a love of music. In other words, LTJ Bukem is a man on a mission!
