Uncredited female vocal sample in 'Horizons' is Maya Angelou reading from her poem 'On The Pulse Of Morning', at the inauguration of former US President Bill Clinton (01/1993).

First pressing? is misspelled 'Horizion' on the label. However, many released around the same time had the correct spelling.

the main side, Horizons is the seminal release from LTJ Bukem , a career defining moment and a bridge-gap for the genres and subgenres of jungle and dnb ...

everyone knows Horizons but I bought this record for Rain Fall ... a beautiful piece of under rated rhythm, starting off with an off-beat vocal mash up and then dropping into the famous Hot Pants break which has been heavily EQ'd to sound raw and very rolling, the tune then breaks into a fantastic roll of a chilled, lush pad, with rollin beats and a solid bassline ... give this one a try !!

I don't really like Horizon, it's not a bad track, but it is a bit drum and bass "lite" (it truly wouldn't be amiss in a deodorant advert), which is probably why it appeared on so many of those awful chill out CDs in the early noughties. Rainfall is the superior track for my money.

One of the reasons why I produce Drum n Bass. I remember hearing this on Radio 1 back in 1997, was only about 10 years old at the time and listened to Jungle on and off when I was young. Heard this tune countless times in the late 90s and in early 00s when I started DJing I managed to get hold of Horizons on vinyl but have since sold a lot of my old 12's (so regret that) but this really was why I wanted to produce Drum n Bass. As for the sample used.... back then a lot of sounds were lifted from other records and I think Bukem worked it so well within this track. If anyone remembers the documentary he was in with his label there was a part where he was in the studio sampling sounds and he said he often ripped from jazz records etc so it wasnt uncommon. If anything Bukem took the intelligent sound to the masses! great DJ and great producer. Horizons will always have a place in any DnB/Jungle set I do.

fantastic release but is it just me or does the bassline come in at a peculiar time on the a side "horizons"?

I use this tune as an alarm to wake me up. One of the best ways to start a day, I recommend it to anyone. A timeless classic. If you don't like this then your not worth knowing.

This was released in 1995, epitomising that "intelligent Drum n Bass" sound of the time: lush melodies and trancey moods, underpinned by breakbeat rhythms. However, rewind a year earlier to 1994 and take a listen to "Sunflash", the first track on Lemon Sol's album "Environmental Architecture". You'll very likely spot a not-insignificant resemblance to those sweeping, lush melody structures on "Horizons"; as in: they're exactly the same!

Ah yes; clever (and uncredited) pillaging by Mr Bukem, for sure.

One of the all time classics and IMO Bukem's best tune. Crafted at a time when Jungle was very quickly evolving away from its Rave roots, tunes like this opened DnB to a much wider audience. The sample at the beginning says it all

"Each new hour holds new chances for new beginnings,
The Horizon leans forward offering you space to place new steps of change ..."
