Liquid music on the radio

Liquid is a subgenre of drum and bass that emerged in the mid-1990s. It is characterized by its smooth, atmospheric sound that incorporates elements of jazz, soul, and funk. The tempo typically ranges from 160 to 180 beats per minute, and the use of synthesizers, acoustic instruments, and vocal samples is common. The genre is known for its focus on melody and groove, rather than the aggressive beats and basslines of other drum and bass subgenres.

Some of the most popular artists in the liquid drum and bass genre include London Elektricity, High Contrast, Netsky, Camo & Krooked, and Fred V & Grafix. London Elektricity, founded by Tony Colman, is one of the pioneers of the genre, and has been instrumental in its development over the years. High Contrast, aka Lincoln Barrett, is another influential figure in the genre, and has achieved significant commercial success with his album releases. Netsky, a Belgian producer, is known for his energetic live performances and catchy melodies, and has been one of the most prominent artists in the genre in recent years.

There are several radio stations that specialize in liquid drum and bass music. Bassdrive Radio, established in 2003, is one of the most popular online radio stations for the genre, featuring live shows from DJs around the world. Other notable stations include DNBRadio, Jungletrain.net, and Renegade Radio, all of which offer 24/7 streams of liquid drum and bass music. Additionally, some mainstream radio stations in the UK, such as BBC Radio 1Xtra and Kiss FM, occasionally feature liquid drum and bass tracks in their programming.
