Lol I love these threads.

One of the coolest styles in Dnb is the dreamy, atmospheric sound developed by Seba:

Alaska & Seba - Back from Eternity [2006]

Seba - Snow [2009]

I'm not sure which exact subgenre the next track falls under, but it's like a dark form of liquid DnB. Noisia during this time was mainly known for his neurofunk, so this is a unique "liquid" track:
Noisia & Teebee - Moon Palace [2006]

I really love liquid DNB, gives such great dreamy atmosphere, only style that is similar to trance in that sense that you can get really get lost into it:
Another similarity is that the golden days of the genre are in the past, havent really heard anything great in recent years, but there are so many great tracks from early 2010s.

Yep, the days of the "Reese Bass" (I think that's what it's called) Netsky-styled DnB are over. You can occasionally find the odd gem, though.
Liquicity is a good channel, and I'm glad you posted a track from them. Ledge Sounds, Skankandbass, and Liquiddnbftw are also good channels for liquid DnB. UKF posts the odd rare track.

Halogenix - Don't You Know [2018]

Bungle - None of Them [2019]

Hugh Hardie - Nightingale [2018]

One of my favorites. If it wasn't for Forza Horizon 2, I probably wouldn't know this one.


In general I follow Hospital Records and their Med School sublabel (which was sadly shut down earlier this year), as I like much of the stuff they release.

A few other great tracks from those labels:

Massive neurofunk fan here since 2006, when I've heard "Therapy Sessions 3" compilation mixed by Noisia. They are still my favourite dnb project, too bad they're ending their closing the project next year after 20 years of musical career.

Here's that beautiful mix. Enjoy :)


Tracklist:
01. Noisia & Teebee - Lost Cause
02. Noisia & Mayhem - Choke (ft. Verse)
03. Noisia & Teebee - Timestops
04. Teebee - Not The One
05. Noisia Phace - Thrillseekers
06. Phace - Fingerfood
07. Noisia - Bad Dreams
08. Calyx & Kontrol - Set Me Free
09. Break - Submerged
10. Phace & Noisia - The Feed
11. Noisia - Dmissions
12. Noisia & Phace - Unveil
13. Noisia - Concussion
14. Phace - Open Your Eyes
15. Phace & Noisia - Crevice
16. Noisia - Subdue
17. Noisia - The Tide
18. Audio - Destroyed
19. Phace - Brainware
20. Atom & Cell - Pressure (Noisia Remix)
21. Konflikt - Messiah (Noisia Remix)

That track is insane. I think it's unlikely that someone who only listens to UKF or the other DnB youtube channels would know it.
If your knowledge really is -3/10 (which I don't think is true), take a look at The Journey, a famous DnB mix from ~8 years ago. It currently has 30 million views and has a lot of the classic Netsky liquid sound.


Beyond that specific style of liquid, it's worth spicing things up with Sambass (Samba + DnB). Tracks like that are rare, and it sounds like a combination that shouldn't work. It does, and it sounds reasonably jungle-y. Check it out:

A quality neurofunk mix full of ID's from Fre4knc, one of my favourite artists of the last few years.

Ok, this is absolutely f*cking gorgeous

This is what im talking about. Explore most of those names on this album Kata and you will discover so much good Drum & Bass. Like Trance its golden era = 95 - 2005, but actually some amazing stuff in 05 - 12 as well. Really dark and tech driven stuff. I will share some at some point

Ok, holy damn this is good - might be one of the best tracks I've discovered this year.


Seriously, why haven't I heard of this label before? Absolute bangers!
