Mixtape Alert: Birth of Liquid (Faze One)

It’s early summer, the perfect time of year for melodic drum & bass!

As always, there’s a bit of a history lesson. Liquid funk came of age around 2004, but the birth cries could be heard as far back as the early ’90s with the dawn of drum & bass itself.

Liquid DNB went by different monikers throughout the decade: jungle jazz, atmospheric, drum & space; but the biggest stars of liquid funk owe everything to these pioneers of mid / late ’90s melodic drum & bass, and there’s no better place to start than Jonny L.’s absolutely devastating 2 Of Us.
