Oakland’s own Russ Liquid is readying a new album full of his unmistakable funk and bass stylings, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere of the smooth, synth-driven Sweetest Taboo.
Russ Liquid’s reputation for complex, layered production holds true in this latest groove. Sweetest Taboo brings waves of synth that swell and subside to reveal new sonic nuances and details as his crystalline environment takes shape.
If the dynamic soundscape has you thinking that this one’s got an inordinate amount of musical ability, you’d be right. The forthcoming In Love LP will showcase Liquid’s instrumental talents ranging from clarinet and all manner of brass to piano and more, not to mention his penchant for lush, funk-filled beats.
The complete In Love album drops July 2 on Gramatik’s Lowtemp imprint. Check out his tour schedule below as well.
