Fresh Off His Third LP, Liquid DnB Extraordinaire Etherwood Takes The Decks For Beats 1 One Mix –

The type of music that makes you feel like you’re floating in the sky.

Beats 1’s weekly radio show, One Mix, continues its foray into drum ‘n’ bass with another incredible artist this weekend.

Fresh from releasing his third studio album, UK artist Etherwood will be taking the decks for One Mix. In Stillness, released just a week ago, is the perfect embodiment of Etherwood’s eclectic sound. Created in the Nordic wilderness, it’s no surprise the album is heavily influenced by nature, isolation, and tones of tranquility and warmth.

Etherwood has a penchant for combining DnB’s raw energy with honest elegant soundscapes. An exemplary take on liquid funk, a subgenre marked by focus on traditional instrumental sounds over bar-based creation, Etherwood’s style is deeply inspired by his background as a multi-instrumentalist. Rather than synths, his music is dominated by classic elements like the piano, guitar and saxophone, atop captivating DnB beats. Not to mention, he often sings on his songs, adding layers of honest vocals over soundscapes already brimming with emotion.
