Bonus Beats 5: Liquid Drum and Bass

Download


Inspired by some music from our past Gameboy Advance episode, we present a mix of great liquid drum and bass video game music! There are tracks from a diverse group of games and game consoles, but they all hit the mark for big bass, big atmosphere, and speed.

Liquid is a sub-genre of drum and bass, using similar tempos and bass-lines, but aimed at producing a sentimental atmosphere for listening at home, rather than at a nightclubs and raves.

Hey! next week is our 200th episode!!! We’re going to highlight your favorite moments from the show, so let us know! Send us an email!
