Stream The Russ Liquid Test’s genre-bending 7-track ‘World Gone Crazy’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

The Russ Liquid Test‘s future-oriented funk and jazz stylings continues to gain momentum across the live jamtronica scene. The New Orleans-based trio — known for their clean fusion of live instrumentation, psychedelic visuals, and digital sound design — have just capped off a mind-blowing Suwannee Hulaween performance as one of the last stops along their extensive fall tour.

On Nov. 3, The Russ Liquid Test released their seven-track World Gone Crazy EP following a string of teased singles off the record, “Rise,” “World Gone Crazy,” and “Communication Breakdown.” The full EP instrumentation consists of live drums, guitar, brass, keys, and a number of digital softwares, resulting in a hybrid style typically unfrequented in dance music. As such, World Gone Crazy comes as a landmark release for the three-piece band, highlighting their evolution over recent years both on stage and in-studio.

From the funky, free lead-in track, “OMOP,” to the light-hearted vigor of the closing track, “Ruckus,” the entire EP is as fun and dynamic as it is robust, compelling, and vitally urgent. A stand-out track on the EP is “World Gone Crazy,” featuring Chicago-based rapper ProbCause, for how it perfectly encapsulates the overall ethos of the album with undeniable energy and a potent political commentary that is fitting for the current historical moment.

A diverse project comprised of hip-hop, liquid drum and bass, funk, and downtempo, The Russ Liquid Test’s World Gone Crazy EP remains true to the sound they’ve long-cultivated while proving their versatility knows no generic bounds.
