Personally i feel liquid is now used to describe anything that is at about 175bpm that cant be called techstep or jump up
dont get me wrong there is alot of good liquid out there and you've got have tunes that make the girls get up lol
personally i wouldnt go to a liquid night and get fucked up, it's more background music for me, but if u do like ur liquid check out most of the records on Bingo & Hospital Records, both have a fine back catalogue of "smooth rollers" with sum cheesy vocals to boot
Its like your bog standard dance floor dnb but with more brains, class and refinement. lol.
Imagine your bog standard wobbly dnb as some slapper in a tracksuit with those big nasty fake gold hoop earings, pusing a push chair wearing cheap Boots perfume and a pair of nikes. Well, imagine her classier cousin, down the cocktail bar (a good one) wearing an expensive dress and sipping champagne cocktails......thats liquid!
Or its the difference between S Club 7 and Marvin Gaye.
Its drum n bass with thought, depth, soul, and music! (its also known as ‘gay drum n bass’ lol.) The credible face of dnb.
In other words liquid is DnB for grown ups (and girls)… (IMO. Etc etc etc). Those that slag it off for being boring (as with dubstep) tend to be the ones that don’t go to Liquid nights like Swerve, Marky and friends, Hospital or Shogun… all are wicked nights.
2 of the best albums of 2007 were both liquid ones.
