    haha ^

    alright, contributing:

    slower tempo than most liquid dnb since it's an acquired taste and i dont wanna scare anyone off right away. great late night track either way.

    and if you don't like that this one's a lil more on topic (best listened to late night, of course):

    ^ Good posts but this strikes me more as "the new downtempo" than ambient. At least from listening to these two tracks, the sound of liquid dnb has strong downtempo elements only at twice the BPM.

    Ambient is much more organic and unstructured, IMO.

    Still, good posts. What are some good liquid dnb labels (or is the genre still emerging) to check out? My brother has been spinning DnB for about 12 years (or as I like to call it, pots and pans - he hates that) but I'm not sure if he's into this sub-genre or not so label suggestions would be welcome. Not sure he would like it though because it doesn't sound very mixable (no straight up beat intros and outros to mix in and out of are a DJ's worst enemy).

    ^ yeah just that first track is more or less loosely considered liquid DnB, but the tempo is a lot slower than most liquid tracks... I just posted that one cuz it's more accessible than most liquid as it's sort of a niche genre/acquired taste. you're right the second track is more downtempo than ambient, I posted it to to try and keep on topic as it's a pretty good chillout tune but by no means liquid. the liquid DnB scene is big in London as the UK is basically a pioneer as far as electro in general is concerned. but what you'll wanna check out is Hospital Records... essentially the one label you'll wanna look at for the best liquid DnB... they have an epic lineup of legendary producers... there are a ton of other good liquid DnB artists out there but Hospital dominates the scene... London Elektricity, Netsky, High Contrast, Logistics, Danny Byrd, etc...

    anyway, I don't wanna derail this thread too much as it's focus is ambient, but here are a couple true liquid tracks that are really good:

    MRSA is a side project of a techno producer under another moniker (Matt Zo), but his liquid is better than anything else he puts out as every one of his tracks is incredible. Starts out a lil boring but after 1:10 or so it really takes off:

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]


    This one's a gem, rarity in that it's a US producer (well technically they relocated here from UK I think). :

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    old school liquid track:

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    This guy is unsigned as far as I know, which is incredible because the track is so great. again a lot slower tempo than most liquid but this is one of my favorite tracks... the piano sampling later in the track is out of this world!:

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    and finally a track everyone should be familiar with, I think this remix is far better than the original:

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    anyway, hopefully you guys might hear something you like, I think this genre is the most uplifting music there is period... so glad to have discovered it as it's truly life changing as far as I'm concerned. I suppose it could loosely be described as chillout since the influence is clearly ambient, it just takes the best of both worlds (ambient + dnb) to produce something really unique.

    My submission for today comes off of Juno Reactor's 2000 album Shango. Called Song for Ancestors. A little bit more of a tribal twist to chill-out music.

    I'll post a 5 minute edited version that somebody set to Mamoru Oshii's (of Ghost in the Shell fame) movie Avalon, which came out 2001. Kind of a Matrix meets 13th Floor with a little Central European flavor of Half-Life thrown into it.

    If you're not familiar with Juno Reactor then I highly recommend going to see them live; quite a sight.

    Heh, I actually have a live recording somewhere of an hour long set I did at a club from 2009 where I closed with this tune.

    Great track but never liked the mix down of it because the intro was so short for mixing.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it wasn't that the intro was too short, it was the sidechained chords that came in too early.
