"It’s funky, it’s earnest, and it’s full of syrupy disco synths and finger popping bass—“Speedster,” from West Coast producer Russ Liquid, is what you’d listen to while riding a gold-plated limo through outer space. Liquid, a jazzy multi-instrumentalist who is rarely seen without a horned instrument in his mouth, is currently on a summer tour with Gramatik—whose label, Lowtemp, will release Liquid’s next album In Love later this summer. If you love Chromeo but wish Dave 1 would shut up sometimes, you’re going to love this."-- Thump
"2014 seems to be the year for Russ Liquid. In 2014, he’s collaborated with artists like Opuio on the reggae-inspired track “On Your Side,” and is currently on tour with Gramatik and has been playing on and off with him since the Age of Reason tour began (see tour dates below!). With Russ Liquid’s release of his multi-dimensional LP, Foreign Frequency, in early 2013 and EP, Promises, in late 2013, it’s exciting that he’s throwing even more beatscapes our way so soon."-- Sensible Reason
