Love Affair with Liquid Dn'B
I make it no secret that I love me some Drum N' Bass. I especially love the atmospheric to jazzy sounds of the sub genre Liquid DnB. So far this year I have done 3 Drum N' Bass mixes and I plan on doing a few more. Especially since I bought a LARGE vinyl collection at Dr. Freecloud's Record Shoppe. I was there for Record Store Day at the end of April and I was there just in time. They had recently purchased a very large Drum N' Bass record collection. There was a ton of stuff from Good Looking Records, which is the label that was ran by one of my fave DJ's, LTJ Bukem. This collection was pristine. So I guess when Ron D. Core made me a offer that I couldn't refuse, well I couldn't refuse. I ended up with the entire collection. So what I did immediately was recorded my first vinyl mix in the studio I have done in years. I did it Live on Facebook and also recorded it at the same time. Below are the results of that first mix. I still have enough from the collection I purchased for several more mixes so tuned.
I also have done two mixes with newer tracks using my XDJ's or my DDJ-1000. The latest one is the mix I did over Memorial weekend, in where I tested recording and using my DDJ-1000 controller for full mix for the first time. I have to say I really like this controller and by having easy access to DJ in my house and not having to head into the studio to record, well let's just say expect a lot more mixes. I plan on doing a new mix every season (quarter) so expect a new one this fall. Check out the first 2 mixes in the Liquid Funk mixes below.
