Podcast 25 - Liquid Dnb

Many of you (especially those in the States) don't know it yet but you actually love drum and bass.  You just haven't actually listened to it yet.  Today that all changes.

Liquid is a sub genre of drum and bass which nails down pretty well almost all my favorite DnB tunes.  Not that I work real hard to fit tracks into different labeled boxes but to give a general idea of what the liquid label means I'll defer to Wikipedia which says, "it contains fewer bar-oriented samples and more instrumental layers (both synthesized and natural), harmonies, and ambience, producing a calmer atmosphere directed at both home listeners and nightclub audiences."  One of the really cool parts about it for me is the drum part sounds like it is in double time to the melody a lot of the time or the melody is half time.  Either way, it's the juxtaposition that really gets me.  Of course sometimes, you gotta get dark, dirty, and just blow it up.  We've got some killer brand new stuff as well as going way back in a knod to a true originator of the genre.

Oh and I don't know what I was thinking when I recorded this podcast but there is no such thing as Hospitality Records or the Hospitality Podcast.  It's just Hospital Records and the Hospital Podcast.  I've been such a fan of theirs for so long you'd think I could at least get the name right.  Oh well.  Enjoy.
