Russ Liquid (Live)
Russ Liquid is the future-vintage groove-blasting maestro who has stirred the
souls and minds of the electronic music world. Renowned for his ingenious
compositional approach, this cosmic virtuoso and imprints a prophetic musical
experience on his audiences. He detonates explosive beatscapes, seamlessly
adding flourishes of instrumental color and emotion; all while drawing from an
endlessly diverse sonic palette.
In only a short time, Mr. Liquid has developed a reputation for radiating a sonic
supernova of genre-bending beats on the dancefloor, captivating audiences with
passionate live instrumental performances across the U.S. and beyond. In 2012,
the member of the Headtron crew’s dynamic, multi-instrumental, experience was
unleashed on some of the most innovative events and festivals around the globe
including: Coachella, Symbiosis Gathering, Lightning In A Bottle, Shambhala,
Sonic Bloom, Envision Festival (Costa Rica), and Eclipse Festival (Australia).
In February of 2013, Russ resumes his destiny to break musical boundaries and
transcend expectations with Foreign Frequency, his debut full length album on
STS9‘s 1320 Records. Foreign Frequency transports listeners on an interdimensional
adventure to the deepest circles of his musical universe, steering
audiences into an expansive world of visceral beats, laced with spiraling
instrumental accompaniments, and adorned with melodies that only a masterful
improvisationalist could manifest.
As the new year begins, Russ Liquid is plotting new schemes to lead people
deeper into his sonic landscapes across the globe, beginning by supporting
STS9 on their 2013 Winter Tour.
AIMES is the production moniker and musical alter ego of Alabama born, Brooklyn resident, Aman Ellis. Aman entered into the world of electronic music almost by mistake. After years of searching for his sound on the guitar, many of which involved him trying to make his guitar sound like a synthesizer, he opted to trade the two. Now armed with a plethora of gadgets and toys, Aman spends his time bridging the divide between the organic tones of his past and the lush oscillations in his present.
His adventuresome style of synth-wave space pop explores vast sonic territories, keeping a close affinity to other-worldly psychedelia and interstellar weirdness.
“Night Shining is a solo project that I created to be able to create songs that were exactly the way I heard them in my head. I was always a drummer in different bands but I really wanted something more, so I started recording on the side. I would lay down layers of different instruments and vocal harmonies, so it was tough to figure out how to perform the work live. I finally came up with a way where I could perform with my computer, which isn’t really that new, but it still amazes me that I can have every piece of a song at my fingertips to manipulate in any way I want. I always have so much fun playing live because it is always different. I honestly feel like it can be more expressive than playing the same song over and over with a group of people”
