Metaphoric sonic explorer, Liquid Stranger, will showcase WAKAAN label’s freeform electronic sound when he brings the Balance Tour to Montana for two shows in 2022. He’ll perform at The Wilma on Friday, January 28th and The ELM in Bozeman on Saturday, Jan. 29th. These shows will feature label comrades Mersiv, TVBOO, VEIL, & Canabliss.
Martin Stääf a.k.a. Liquid Stranger, draws inspiration from both mellow and heavy styles of electronica, creating a range of sounds that blend ambience, jazz, psychedelic dubstep, and dub reggae. Generation Bass describes Liquid Stranger as “the epitome of Transnational Dubstep covering everything from Latin, Asian, Eastern European and Jamaican Dancehall dubs.”
Renowned for his metamorphic capabilities and expertly crafted sonic adventures, he’s mastered his ability to slip in and out of genres all while honing his own personal style. His most recent album, Infinity, came out in 2019. The 30-song collection was dubbed by EDM.com as “his most diverse, emotional work yet.” In 2021, he released the single “Potions” ft. LSDREAM.
This is a stacked bill for a couple weekend nights, so we know it’s gonna get weird… in the best way. Spread the word and prepare for an unforgettable experience.
