Liquid Stranger releases The Renegade Crusade ep along with a dimension warping video for the track The Gargon from Australian artist Andy Thomas aka Android. Liquid Stranger's work on Interchill has run from deep and intricate electronica to heavy dubs and glitchy mid tempo exotica. The five tracks on the ep showcase the more chilled and cosmic side of his recent work, and Liquid Stranger's signature style of full bass, melodic mastery and impeccable production shines through.
The ep kicks of with Spawn; a tripped out trip hop track with elastic beats and analogue melodics. Then we morph into the realm of The Gargon; heavy, half-time, otherworldly and fully blissed out with a heartbeat foundation that supports a glittering weave of melody and detail. Space and complexity co-exist in harmony and Liquid Stranger makes the lead lines sing. Next up we are back to familiar territory with a stripped down and chunky remix of The Molecule Man, which originally introduced The Arcane Terrain album. Again, each element has space to feature and breathe in the mix. Then we have Brace For Impact, where Canadian DJ and vocalist Saratonin sings with beatboxing from Honeycomb to create a breathtaking tune, made entirely from vocals and giving some light and contrast to the ep. Lastly, things get downright cosmic and futuristic on Dreamer Deluxe, with Razza guesting on vocals and some of the best chord changes ever recorded. Never one to repeat himself, Liquid Stranger sets the bar high and once again shows that when it comes to musicality and production he has no equal.
