By definition, “convoy” is an “escort for protection.” In other words, a resourceful, armed group of likeminded individuals who travel together and uphold the same values. This is a concept that Liquid Stranger’s WAKAAN imprint retains with it’s 23-track compilation, Convoy.
The compilation features a variety of artists who share the same vision – from the bass scene’s biggest names to its finest newcomers. Featuring tracks from Space Jesus, LUZCID, Truth, Digital Ethos, TLZMN, Champagne Drip, Yheti, Shlump, Freddy Todd, Esseks, and many more, Convoy is a statement showcase of the carefully defined sound that WAKAAN has been championing from the start.
Prepare to be taken on a galactic bass journey as the Convoy touches on its true otherworldly form, pushing WAKAAN’s “freeform bass music” mantra to the next level. As listeners prepare to lose themselves in WAKAAN’s mysterious world like never before, it’s clear that the left field bass community won’t be going anywhere, anytime soon. Things are about to get real strange…
Coupled with the album compilation is the Convoy release show, touching down in Milwaukee, Denver, and Athens, Georgia.

LUZCID, the popular bass artist, hails from the wonderful Bayou city, Houston, TX. He has quite the resume, collaborating with the likes of Bassnectar TWICE, so you know he’s legit. LUZCID dropped his latest track, ‘The Maze’, about a month ago and once again uses his unique talents to take you on a psychedelic trip.
Just a few days before their collaborative tour takes off, Jantsen and LUZCID hit us with an incredible new, yet nostalgic, dubstep track. The track’s title, “Submarine,” is also the title of their upcoming tour going from coast to coast. Both of these artists are on the rise coming out with one banger after another, this one being no exception to their rule of delivering incredible music.
The track starts with reggae influenced, up-stroked guitar chords. This is proceeded by a vocal chop that adds some rhythm to the accompanying old school styled synth playing a melody in the back. The break comes in with a rave synth placed in the background, adding to the suspense as breaks come in to build the song. When the drop hits, it feels and sounds like you were transported to early 2000s with the duo’s nostalgically styled wubs. While the old school feel of the track makes us reminisce back to late nights listening to Mt Eden on YouTube in our bedrooms, the producers also add refreshing elements that weren’t prevalent in old school dub. You can download the track for free below. Also check out their upcoming tour dates to catch the duo in action:
