Welcome back to the second part of THE BEST OF LIQUID & DEEP, which brings you special mix showcasing fresh selection of the most interesting Liquid and Deep Drum and Bass tracks for the month of AUGUST. The mix consists of the best 5 tunes from each style, so we pick only 10 tracks for whole month! Here, you will find songs from the well-known labels as such as works from upcoming producers. Check out the tracklist, where the links to buy or stream are included.
Beginning of August revealed beautiful liquid release by Dutch producer Edlan. 'Take A Bow' is a uplifting vocal tune, literally dancefloor anthem of this summer. That elevating sharp, deep and beeping sound which you start to hear under the lyrics is 'Pitch Dark' by Toulouse talent Trail, taken from his second EP at Flexout. Sick, right? Then there we have an energetic liquid with outstanding vocals and strong bass, Spearhead quality by Villem, Mcleod, worth to listen whole EP! Next up is Break's remix of Total Science's 2002 amentastic ‘Lightweight’, he delivers funky roller twist, good as usual! End of the August was full of great releases and debut collaboration of two massively influential acts Artificial Intelligence & Makoto and their cosmic piece 'Cold Expanse' is surely one of them, out now as part of UKF 2020 Series.
Second half of the mix introduces Visages, another four talented producers from Toulouse, in collaboration with famous soulful singer Laville and their 'About You'. We are blending it with another powerful collaboration of Toulouse stars (again!) Redeyes & Monty - 'Belong', from highly expected album 'Selfportraits', written almost exclusively during the Covid-19 crisis, this album captures a time spent in sheltered reflection. Mixed with J:Kenzo, who returns to 31 Recordings with another weighty offering, flexing a gritty tech-step flavour on 'The Summoner'. Continuing with uplifting collaboration Burnzy, Optics, Ethos, Elipsa on Four Corners, we are getting to the last but not least Nelver, who joined The Outlaw Ocean Music Project and created beautiful and important musical message inspired by 'The Outlaw Ocean', a book by Ian Urbina.
