Redefining the possibilities of modern music, Russ Liquid fuses the raw vitality of classic funk and the inventive sound design of electronic production, bringing a much-needed injection of melody and emotion to the thriving dance floor community.
A kinetic energy infuses Russ’ music, giving way to a mixture of funk/jazz/electro, evoking a kaleidoscope of textures, senses, and moods, and is an improv-driven musicality at the heart. Classically trained on the piano, trumpet, saxophone and flute, Russ Liquid spent his early 20’s touring the Caribbean and South America as part of a jazz quintet, playing resorts, cruise ships and dance clubs. Once the young composer was introduced to electronic music, his course in life was forever altered, and he soon discovered a new home in the international electronic music community.
Hand-crafting sexy sounds by blending elements of many genres together, Russ Liquid applies the colorful tones of instrumental music to the realm of the beats with dance floor-rocking results. This talented producer has found an entirely new palette to “paint” with, and now he seeks to bridge the gap between classical and modern music with new electronic technology and sonic possibilities.
Russ Liquid is continually putting out new music and has quite a few releases up his sleeve, and creates a joyful sense of synergy in his high-powered live shows, with recent appearances including Shambhala Music Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, Summer Camp, and Sonic Bloom, among others. No matter the setting, a clear multidimensionality can always be heard in his projects. “I want to make people feel good but also give them something to reflect with,” says Scott. “It’s not about just making party music or music that’s more introspective—it’s for the full gamut of human expression, and I want it to be just as dynamic as life itself.”
