Bass music is in a fascinating space as it seems to be in the midst of a renaissance where artists like Ivy Lab, LSDream, Rezz, and a countless list of others are pushing low-end sounds to their limit. While The Russ Liquid Test are generally associated with the funky live cornerstones of the scene like Griz and Gramatik, their newest is a part of that deep down revolution. Called “Fanghorn”, this single has a deceptively danceable groove while grimy bass wobbles churn at the song’s core, putting the proverbial nose to the grindstone.
The versatility of this track is a testament to how talented The Russ Liquid Test are as a group. You could imagine “Fanghorn” being dropped during an outdoor Tipper set in the sweltering Florida heat with hula-hoop dancers and pockets of fans dancing freely as much as a sweaty, packed downtown venue collectively raging en masse for an Excision set. The possibilities for their music are virtually endless which is such an exciting prospect! The balance they strike reminds me of Bassnectar who I could totally see dropping “Fanghorn” during a set – fingers crossed we can manifest that and make it a reality.
