In late November of last year, Oakland-based producer Russ Liquid blessed us with a bass-infused EP that promised to keep its color purple. Consisting of deep bass lines and eerie soundscapes that matched its music with the cold, dark nights of winter, the timing of Promises was perfect. Having just released another album this past week, Russ Liquid’s production seems to be keeping in pace with the changing seasons. While still holding true to his downtempo-bass roots, Liquid’s In Love shares with its listeners a brighter, more blissful vibe that is just right for the summertime. The combination of the classic Liquid trumpet along with 80’s-style synths results in an increase in funk, which was warmly welcomed by fellow producer Gramatik, who released the album on his own label: Lowtemp.
