take me high

As promised, here is a classic track from Ron Hardy. To give a bit of a history lesson about Mr. Hardy would almost be silly because so many people have done it before. So, if you're into finding out what the story is behind this guy, I recommend going either here or here.

"Liquid Love" is a 100-bpm slow burner, with dramatic vocal stylings, lush piano chords, strings mixed quite low, and a heavy beat that has been sampled by innumberable numbers of hip-hop producers as well as re-edit masters like Theo Parrish and Mungolian Jet Set. The crunchy synth bass-line is also notable for this reason-- you'll undoubtedly be able to recognize it if you've been listening to hip-hop or house for a bit. Also worth mentioning are the excellent remixes and edits of this track, especially the "Can U Feel It Mix." So, get to it, and spread some liquid love all over.

Ron Hardy- Liquid Love (Clean)

In the coming days, look forward to an ambient take on Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)," an old remix from Sounds of Life, and a hard techno mix I've been working on. Check back every day!
