"Sweet Harmony", Liquid's first and best-known track, layered the house music of CeCe Rogers' "Someday" over rolling, breakneck beats. 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.
The "Sweet Harmony" single was followed by the The Future Music EP which included "Liquid is Liquid". Following Heneghan's departure from the band 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'.
The first three EPs were recorded with producer Jezz Wright at Blockhouse.
Liquid have achieved Top 40 singles in the UK, and several European hits. The NME described the XL recordings album Liquid Culture as "sophisticated, soulful techno". Liquid has performed live in many countries over many years. December 2007 saw the re-release of "Sweet Harmony" on XL recordings with remixes by James Talk, Dave Spoon and Streetlife DJs. A drum and bass remix of "Sweet Harmony" by Danny Byrd was "getting primetime airplay all over Radio 1" in early 2010.
