Liquid Stranger Celebrates His WAKAAN Family At Mission Ballroom

One of the giants in the EDM world, Liquid Stranger brought a plethora of his friends to Denver this past weekend. Martin Staaf is better known by his stage name Liquid Stranger. He launched himself as an experimental EDM artist in the early 2000s.

Following this, he created his own record label Wakaan. Since then, Liquid Stranger has made a name for himself throughout the EDM world with his visual production level and his expert mixing skills.

Recently, Liquid Stranger has signed many prominent artists to his label. Some of his most notable artists include LSDream, Tvboo, and LUZCID. Overall, Stranger and the Wakaan label as a whole boast themselves as a collective. For the first night stop at Mission Ballroom, and even the second night, there was a myriad of artists to choose from.

The Openers

To begin the evening, Kyrol and Banko and Notixx, both played deeper and more down-tempo sets. This slower start to the evening allowed for Mission Ballroom to begin to fill up. Both of the opener’s visuals were minimal. As the night went on, it was clear that Mission Ballroom was almost completely wall-to-wall with people anticipating the king of Wakaan himself later in the evening.

However, the energy in the venue quickly changed as the Mississippi native, Tvboo took the stage. He is known for his goofy persona and wooky beats. Tvboo emerged on the stage wearing nothing but overalls and taking the audience on a wild ride. Playing many of his hit songs, including “Wook Work,” “Skrawberries.” He also brought out a rapper to engage with the crowd. He definitely had the entire venue on their feet. Further, at the end of his set, he took his overalls off in his typical goofy fashion and danced around the stage in his underwear.

Certainly, it was an interesting choice to put Tvboo in between the first two openers and the next two. The dynamic deep bass artists YookiE walked on stage boasting visuals that declared “Yookie Sucks.” They kept that same high energy of their predecessor by playing their standout tune of the year “Bubble Bass.” As the night progressed, the next artist to warm the stage up for Liquid Stranger, was Buku. For his set, he focused more on the psychedelic and trippy side with many visuals that seemed to go on forever. Overall, all of the openers set the stage for what was to come.

Finally, as many people noted in the crowd, the lasers not only lit up behind and the sides of the stages but also, next to the DJ stand. As Liquid Stranger took the stage, he explained the lights on stage were a new LED technique, and boy was this technology one that completely changed the mood in the crowd. Not a single person was sitting as the man of the night started off heavy and then moved into some of his throwbacks. Most notably, he played “Don’t Stop,” and his own drop from “Space Boss.” Throughout his set, he spent a lot of time on the microphone shouting out anytime he played a song from someone on the WAKAAN collective. Then, the night ended with him appreciating not only his collective but the crowd as a whole.

Conclusion

Overall, the first night of Liquid Stranger proved to be a great mixture of both deep dubstep and more of the wook bass that the WAKAAN label is known for. Most importantly, the first night set the stage for not only what was to come on night two, but for the rest of the recently announced tour for 2022.

Redrum Enchants Listeners with New Single, “Floating”

Redrum is a rising bass music producer from Portland. Back in May, she made her explosive debut when she released her single, “Phases,” a charming bass spell that captivated the dance music community. Redrum bewitches her listeners leading up to the release of her full Pisces Moon EP later this summer. Earlier this week, Redrum returned to Liquid Stranger’s SSKWAN label with her new single, ‘Floating.‘ This ethereal song features dreamy vocals and lush soundscapes that will take your mind on a journey through an otherworldly paradise. Listening to ‘Floating’ will transport you to a state of total euphoria as you feel like you are drifting through the clouds and into the stars.

Redrum’s Early Life

Before she became known as Redrum, Tatiana Tindell was drawn to music from a young age. Her father was a composer, musician, and DJ. Growing up, Tatiana discovered her passion for dance. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Hodgkins’ Lymphoma when she was 17. Chemotherapy treatments caused extreme bone and muscle weakness, which forced her to part ways with dancing and sent her into a battle with depression. Eventually, Tatiana found relief through a new creative outlet: Producing. Over time, Tatiana’s musical abilities helped her develop a connection to her witchy side and express herself. Inspired by Stephen King’s The Shining, Tatiana created Redrum. Through her hypnotic music, Redrum enchants her listeners and guides them to connect to their inner magic.  

Redrum’s Career

Redrum is quickly gaining notoriety in the bass music community. Before debuting as a solo artist, she featured on Subsidia’s Dawn: Vol. 2 and Electric Hawk’s In Unity compilation albums with her signature ethereal sounds. 

During the COVID-19 shutdowns, she captured the attention of virtual crowds on lineups including Electric Hawk’s Harmony Virtual Music Festival and In Unity Livestream, Wormhole Entertainment’s weekly Wormhole Wednesday, and Nova Lotus Music’s Nova Vita live stream. 

The Supreme Witch also delivered an enchanting performance at Forbidden Kingdom Music Festival in Orlando last month. With another performance coming up in August at Kosmic Kingdom Music Festival, Redrum proves that she is a force to reckoned with as she enchants the masses.
