Liquid are a British dance act, formed by Eamon Downes (a.k.a. Ame) and Shane Heneghan (a.k.a. DJ Model).
“Sweet Harmony”, Liquid’s first and best-known track, layered the house music of CeCe Rogers’ “Someday” over rolling breakbeats. Initially released in 1991 on the self-pressed white label Liquid EP of 500 copies, it was re-released to a wider audience on XL Recordings in the following year. In the UK, the original 1992 version peaked at No. 15; the 1995 release at No. 14; and the 2004 release at No. 87.
The “Sweet Harmony” single was followed by The Future Music EP which included “Liquid Is Liquid”. Following Heneghan’s departure from the group after the first two releases, Liquid’s reputation for recording alternative dancefloor fillers was cemented with “Time to Get Up” and the flamenco guitars of “One Love Family” – both of which were Mixmag ‘singles of the week’.
