Family and friends call him Ian but when playing out he adopts the pseudonym of Liquid Lounge…
Found playing the back room chill out at one of the legendary Mansion Parties (Leeds) in 1995... Weaving a quirky mix of abstract electronica, Pink Floyd, Indian ragas and dub…
Soon after the Liquid Lounge was asked to present a show on the now infamous Leeds based 'pirate' radio station Dream FM, as they had an opening for the type of chill out and downtempo music that Ian, as the Liquid Lounge, was playlisting...
For the few years that the Liquid Lounge was on Dream FM, the playlist was entirely downtempo tunes carried across the genres of ambient, trance, dub, electronica, world and ethnic beats... and due to the regular shows on the radio, the Liquid Lounge quickly gained a sizeable reputation for playing the perfect downtempo sets and became a resident for nights such as Sunday Service, Templehead, Dubterranean, Recovery, Party On..., Stimulations, 10 Bar, along with guesting in countless back room chill outs for clubs all over the north of the UK.
Took an 'early retirement' in the new millennium upon the sudden death of a close friend and musical collaborator and having become disillusioned by the whole dance/club scene and.... Taking the time to travel, to rest and recuperate and have time away from dj'ing...
Then, along with everyone else, discovered the digital age...!!! Having forgone the vinyl and opting instead for cd's and a laptop... and with it, discovering a whole new way to dj'ing...
Now back to playing the music that really makes the Liquid Lounge tick - chilled downtempo tracks with a dub/ethno influence, along with psybient, electronica, psychill, dubtech and on occasion the more uptempo set...
Enough blah blah blah... it's about the music, so I hope you enjoy what you hear
