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.
Russ Liquid is the future-vintage groove-blasting maestro who has stirred the hearts and souls of electronic music lovers far and wide. Esteemed for his ingenious compositional approach, this cosmic virtuoso impresses his audiences with prophetic musical experiences. He throws down explosive beats while seamlessly adding flourishes of instrumental color and emotion.
Russ Liquid sets himself apart from other up-and-coming West Coast bass music producers through his extensive world-touring history and performance experience. He brings a fresh sound to electronic music as he injects melodies and emotions into the dance floor.
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.
Axel’s popularity has been driven up by his 2014 release, Bad Karma. This track has been streamed more than 300 million times on Youtube, and millions more on Spotify and Soundcloud. His other releases have also been publicized by the BBC Asian Network, Kiss Fm Romania, Ylex Finland and a number of other radio stations around the world.
