Breakbeat visionary LTJ Bukem says he has found a new lease of life by drawing inspiration from a new wave of hardwoking producers and DJ-ing with vinyl.

And in it seems the future of drum & bass is finally upon us with the release of Fabriclive 46, a bright new disc carrying a daring collection of burgeoning talent in a seventy minute mix.

The grooves re-establish Bukem as one of music's DnB mavericks who is still not afraid to snub the calls for floor-filling commercial tunes, preferring to stick to his guns and the finesses of the musical force he represents.

LTJ hopes the mix will highlight what he is doing as a DJ.

*Fabriclive 46 is out on Fabric Records on June 15.
