listen to loads of those style of tunes..break it up, hear all the different elements going on in the track.
Think of how the tracks are structured, the sounds used, percussion, effects..

once u have all that just work on getting the production side sorted and add ur own twist and ur done!

A lot of liquid has a rhodes piano in it and short vocal samples with delay on them.

There's no certain way to go about it, but a lot of the time if I'm making liquid I'll start with a drum break and work from there, gradually layer other instruments over it, and then arrange it.

Hears a really good link with 200 royalty free drum breaks http://www.musicradar.com/news/tech/sampleradar-200-free-drum-n-bass-breaks-samples-335840
I use them now and probably always will.

Good luck :)

Adding to the previous posts, you can add some nice vintage color to your rhodes (or keys in general) by using iZotope's vinyl plugin (which is free). This little plug has really enhanced a lot of my sounds by adding a bit of emulated vinyl dirtiness.

Cheers.
