I'm sure there are some hardcore dark dnb guys that don't care for/hate on it...but I've never heard or experienced this to be a general attitude. What makes you think this is so?

I know there was some hate for "clown step" for a minute and that more than a few people aren't a fan of "trance and bass".

in some way, liquid d'n'b is what house is to techno

There's a lot of liquid d'n'b played at the d'n'b nights here. Where do you get your info from?

Good to know, thanks for your thoughts everyone.
I once posted a liquid dnb track on a dnb thread and someone posted saying it was 'cheddar' and it should go in a designated liquid thread. Fair enough I suppose but it did make me think about whether people though of it as being too 'soft'.

well, you just posted it in the wrong place. It's "too soft" if the context is asking for something "hard". That's all there is to it. Discrepancy between expectations and delivery. There are soft places where it fits, though.

I absolutely despise liquid that's cheesy.. you know
the feel-good stuff that has some diva-ish vocal
in it. I think those tracks are just made to sell more
units and it's the most common form of "liquid" out
there because everyone's trying to copy eachother.

As for liquid that I do like, I prefer the classy, jazz
oriented, deep rolling type stuff... Also the smooth
stuff and that which borders on jungle, atmospheric,
intelligent dnb as some call it.

Re: Am I right in thinking that liquid DnB looked down upon by the DnB community?

idk why DnB ppl can't love all of the genre's subs, despite their very distinct difs in sounds. I for one happen to love all of DnB's subgenres, be it from Liquid DnB/Jazzstep to Techstep/Neurofunk to Jump-Up to Sambass and sometimes Darkstep and Ragga DnB... they all sound awesome to me~

idk about what DnB genre is 'looked down upon' the most, I look at them all pretty equally... they just have their own strengths I guess.

No, looking down on any particular genre is an immature way of looking at music. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. I always tell people to listen what you want to listen to. And instead of talking shit or being negative, just support the artists you like…

Looking back at this thread a year later or whatever - I think the error is in thinking that there is a homogeneous 'DnB community.'
