Liquid Liquid - Slip In And Out Of The Phenomenon

Liquid Liquid are a great minimalist dance/funk group from the early 80's. This record is a reissue/retrospective compilation of the band's work. While they were unappreciated during their heyday, Liquid Liquid went on to influence an entire generation of hip hop and dance artists, which can still be heard today in the music of most indie dance rock groups. You know that killer bass line in Melle Mel's "White Lines"? Give Liquid Liquid's track "Cavern" a listen, and you'll hear exactly where it was lifted from. This band is an important part of music history, so if you're not familiar with them, download this ASAP. If you're already a fan, this is still worth checking out for the great live tracks that cap off the collection.

What bass-player doesn't love it?

Hell, I used it...

'Cavern' is a monster groove.
