In a strange twist of Global Warming, LIQUID ROCKZ are back with some hot beats for these cold times. From futuro-Columbian Trap vibes, to the Kalimba-fused space Cumbia, the feeling is at once rooted in traditional sounds that stare off into outer space, blending and mind bending.
On GRINGO, South American cultural influences meld with Club-music influences New Jersey / Philly / B-More, which are filtered through these German atmospheric shades to provide music that is a step forward while being a look back. The rhythms are authentic yet robotic; an electronic re-palette, complete with mysterious alien vocals and trippy melodies intact.
Indeed, a number of tracks on GRINGO are re-interpretations (not really a “cover”, mind you) of songs from yesteryear. We find that coming to full effect with tweaked- out vocals and ultra-melodic basslines dancing around with the Funky Drummer. There’s bubbling rhythms and as the intensity builds, you have pure dance floor bliss in the form of organic future dub. More Club beats find their way along side obese synth washes, intense pumping bass, and disembodied vocal chops. Even right from the beginning, the album melds different worlds and minds.
This adequately prepares your mind for the eclectic journey the music of LIQUID ROCKZ takes you on.
