What do you guys reckon. Theres a lot of liquid funk styles out there with tunes that seem to go nowhere. It may be well produced but seems to lack any depth or meaning.

Personally i think that Calibre's tunes are on a whole different level to most of the scenes producers at the moment. Im just sat listening to Its Over and Life and im really feeling a deep emotional drive from them. These are tunes you could really lose yourself in. It may just be the reflective mood im in this evening but id like to know what you guys take is on the man.

Im gonna put together a mix this week of some liquid vibes. Some wicked tunes out there at the moment. If theres call i'll send it down to Stu for inclusion on the site.

Calibre is god of that sound, even though I dont buy or play DNB of that type, I do enjoy listening to it in the mix when at home, or in the car.

:love: Calibre - Itz.. (Soul:r) :love:

Yes, Calibre is the man, no question. It's Over, Brother, Just Fine, Makes Me Wonder, My Chance, Fire and Water, Everlast, Tempo Dub, Things R Re-Arranging, anything with Mist:i:cal like Cold Halo, Mist:i:cal Dub, plus about a billion remixes. I own all his releases on vinyl :pimp:

Soooooo many good tunes (and a coupla not so good ones, but even those are better than most other producer's good ones).

However, not feelin' that new Jaheim remix that everyone seems to be so keen on. But it might just grow on me...

Have to agree, he is the daddy of that sound. Definately know what Nicks saying about an emotional drive in his tunes, theres a LOT of feeling put into em.

Calibre is someone I discovered recently, and as a liquid funk lover, when I for example heard Mystic I was landed in some sort of dreamscape. So subtle, a bit ruff edged, but so beautiful. 100% agreed, peepz better watch out for this guy in the future.

The master of simplicity in tunes. Every tune just hits a certain groove and gets you swinging along with it.

Badmarsh and Shri - Signs Remix, now that is one heavy tune. Once again just swings along the whole track with a bassline to devistate dancefloors. :slayer:

I like his older bits but really haven't been impressed with his latest, they seemed to lack the depth of the older ones

Aaaah! Is that the tune that he rewinds and teases Pitch dem Up over the intro of? I been wondering what that tune was, figured it was probably a Calibre thing.

Calibre is the don.

Don't really agree about simplicity someone mentionned here. There's quiet a lot of layers and subtle used samples in his tunes compared with for instance a BC tune where the bassline just makes the tune. Analyze Just Fine or Brother and try to discover the sequences. wicked!

:love:
