Originally coined by Fabio for his 2001 Creative Source compilation, Liquid funk, the term became a catch-all name for the kind of DnB produced by artists such as Calibre, Marky & XRS and High Contrast on labels such as Hospital, Intercom, Soul;R and, of course, Creative Source.
Typified by the heavy use of instrument and vocal samples from funk, soul, disco and house sitting atop a backbone of strong layered beats and warm, solid bass, Liquid hit its peak around 2003, but is still championed by artists such as Eveson in his souled-out productions.
