Meet Jimmy Knees, the renowned DJ and producer from Oxford, celebrated for his smooth Liquid Drum & Bass tracks released on labels like C Recordings and FX909 Music. His popular tunes ‘Possibilities’, ‘Lilibet’, and ‘Blue’ have garnered widespread acclaim.

Q&A:

Sum up this mix in 10 words…

Deep, Techy, Liquid, Vocal, Soulful, Moody, Rolling, Drum, And , Bass

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

Hard to choose a favourite but I’m really feeling Pachamama at the moment. Archangel is such a wicked producer and I regularly include his tracks on my Liquid Assets radio show

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

I’m not sure about any special ingredient but I mix in a way I like to hear mixes. Long melodic mixes on 3 decks that mean there’s nearly always 2 tracks playing. I like to hear a track play and not chop around too much or too quickly which I think works well for the liquid end of the DnB spectrum. 

Tell us about your next EP…

Rome Fall was released on Lizplay Records on Friday (3rd) and I’ve got a track on a compilation on Grand Theft Audio coming in June called Radical Sound. That’s a slightly different vibe and gonna be interesting to see how that is received. 

What have you got coming up?

I’m playing at The Sunday Social in Sheffield next weekend at The Glass Frog and Wobz in Reading are getting me down for a liquid special on the 28th which im looking forward to as I know they put on great parties. 

When was the last time you actually raved?

Haha, this weekend at DoubleDown in Oxford alongside LSB & DRS on Saturday. To be honest I can’t see a time I’m not still raving, life is short, live it. 

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

If you’re feeling the mix check out my Liquid Assets radio show archives on my SoundCloud. 2 hours each month of the music that I love and I’m proper proud of each and every one of them. Even better tune in live 6-8pm first Friday of each month www.differentdrumz.co.uk
